The Fredric Effects Super Unpleasant Companion is switchable between recreations of two rare vintage Shin-Ei fuzz pedals, the FY-2 Companion Fuzz and FY-6 Superfuzz. The Nouveau version is the same as the classic version but in a smaller wedge enclosure with convenient top mounted jacks.

A toggle switch selects between each complete pedal circuit, there is a volume control knob (Balance) shared across both circuits and a fuzz tone shaping knob (Expander) which acts differently in each circuit. In the Superfuzz mode the fuzz goes from a thin fuzz with pronounced ring mod sounds up to a thick complex fuzz and in the Companion fuzz mode it is a subtle tone control changing the fuzz from raspy to woolly. There is a further tone shaping switch that changes the sound of the fuzz in the Superfuzz mode (not used in Companion fuzz mode). The Nouveau version is a smaller wedge enclosure with the controls now on the front of the pedal for quick and easy changes and top mounted jacks for better use with pedal boards (we still stock the classic version as a separate item if you want the vintage correct size and style).
