SHIN-EI Companion FY-2


The FY-2 is well known for its raw, distinctive, gated fuzz. It was sold under a number of brand names, such as Jax, Apollo and Kimbara but was designed by the same company that made the Univox Super-Fuzz. The silicon version of the FY-2 is a cult item, a nasty little thing best known for its appearance on Jesus and Mary Chain’s Psychocandy album.

There are two knobs on the pedal:

  • "Volume" (controls overall level)
  • "Fuzz" (tone)
2 X 828's silicon transistors
Made in Japan, early 70's

Great condition, all original. Switch may need to be replaced if you will use it live, it doesn't happen often, but it may fail.

Functionality: 100%
Original box: NO
Original manual: YES
AC adaptor:  NO

Artists/Bands:  The Jesus And Mary Chain, Radiohead, The Black Keys, Die! Die! Die!
