The Unpleasant Companion is a harsh, uncompromising transistor fuzz.

London, UK (March 13, 2014) -- The Fredric Effects Unpleasant Companion MKII is an improved version of the classic Shin-Ei FY-2 Companion Fuzz, modified with a volume boost circuit to avoid the volume drop characteristic of vintage units and a scoop control to add to the versatility of the effect. It accurately captures the sound of the original, but also adds a bit more. The Unpleasant Companion lives up to its name, and is a harsh, uncompromising transistor fuzz unlike any other!

£95 RRP

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
