Do you know who makes a good quality clone of the Shin ei companion FY 2 fuzz?
There's a guy selling clones on eBay, and I have yet to read a review of them.
I have an original, but it has a pretty nasty volume drop. I'd be happy to come across a clone that rectifies that issue.
I bought one a few months ago from eBay from someone who made a General Guitar Gadgets clone.
Yes I have that clone on the object I'm observing on ebay. But I don't know how to look for informations about it...
Do you remember the name of the seller?
While not exactly a Shin-Ei clone (or is it?), Greg at www.solidgoldfx.com is making a clone of the Ibanez Standard Fuzz, which I believe is very closely related to the Shin-Ei. Correct me if I'm wrong. He has fixed a few things that made the originals a little noisy. Other than that-straight up clone.
Anyone doing a Shin-Ei clone of the univibe?
But what about the MJM China Fuzz? It's a clone of the UNIVOX SUPERFUZZ and I red that the SHIN EI is a univox clone. Is it true? Could anyone compare the 2 pedals? I'm looking for the JESUS AND THE MARY CHAIN tone...
MJM China Fuzz (custom order only)
Land of the Rising Fuzz
I already saw it but don't know about the quality.
Are UNIVOX SUPERFUZZ and SHINE EI CMPANIO FY2 the same thing? This is fondamental...
The Superfuzz is a clone of the Shin-Ei FY6.
I think it's this person:
Land of the Rising fuzz.
heres the MJM China mini in action
Funny, it's the first file I found when I started looking for the Shin Ei!
But I think I discovered the truth. The shin ei SUPERFUZ it's a clone of the UNIVOX SUPERFUZZ and that's what the CHINA FUZZ it's about. The shin ei FY is completely different nad has just 2 transistors instead of 6, this makes it sound much wilder. And there not seem to be official boutique clones of the FY2...
Any newer Shin Ei Companion clones/variants. I'm looking.
Have found these:
Frederic Unpleasant Companion
Benadrian Fuzzy Bunny
Any others that you would recommend checking out.
