fredric effects

A classically voiced fuzz that combines two complete circuits in parallel.

We waited a good while before bringing out our version of the classic Fuzz Face circuit. After all, this is one of the most widely cloned pedals, the basis for many boutique fuzzes. What new could Fredric Effects bring to this effect? The answer is versatility and tweakability.

The pedal features higher gain, lower leakage Russian Germanium transistors, and a low pass filter.

London, UK (September 9, 2014) -- The Utility Perkolator is our latest version of the fabled Interfax Harmonic Percolator from the 1970s. The Harmonic Percolator is a simple yet fascinating circuit which readily lends itself to tweaking and improvement. We already build a faithfully vintage correct version of the Harmonic Percolator, however the Utility Perkolator takes this circuit in another direction. Using higher gain, lower leakage Russian Germanium transistors, and a low pass filter which only removes the high-end hisses and glitches associated with the HP, the Utility Perkolator has a considerably lower noise floor. The result is a tighter and more controllable effect which is still capable of producing the classic Harmonic Percolator sound.

Available in attractive 'cold war cream' with black screen printed artwork featuring the Berlin TV Tower.

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!
