Tym Fuzzilla

This is my homage to the GREAT Companion/Shen-ei FY2 using 2 old stock C945 transistors. This pedal was THE original Japanese fuzz pedal also sold as the original Univox Superfuzz in the US. Both were in a metal wedge shaped box with the knobs either at the top or the side. They were sold under a few different names in the US also. I have added a toggle switch for "Mothra" or "Gamera" which goes from std FY2 with a slight boost to bring it up to bypass volume (the original dropped in volume like most early fuzzes) and a tone control to an FY2 with even more boost and bottom end. Volume and gain are the only other things you'll need.
These are a great 60's fuzz with more dynamics and harmonics than your usual British or US "sausage sizzle" type fuzz. They also have more bottom end and this was the basis for what became the legendary 6 transistor Univox Superfuzz and the Shen-ei fuzzwah.
I have stock of these again in the shop, but they go quick.
