This striking looking and equally incredible sounding fuzz machine is based on the original and highly coveted Companion FY-2 fuzz circuit produced by the Shin Ei company during the 1970s!
These ultra rare and super expensive units are famed for their super nastly spluttery ripping velcro octave fuzzyness and have been used to great effect by artist such as The Black Keys and The Jesus and Mary chain. These crazy Japanese oddities were also famous for being a little temperamental and for having a seriously annoying volume drop when engaged...not good when you are paying £400 for one of these things!!
With all this in mind the Sasori brings you all the beautifully horrible snarl of the original Shin Ei with none of the side effects suffered by these otherwise incredible old units!!!
The Sasori, or scorpion in Japanese, is our interpretation of the classic Shin-ei FY-2 Companion Fuzz. True to its name the Sasori has a powerful stinging personality that is both raw and distinct. Brimming with rich brassy overtones and a unique buzz saw grind the Sasori is bold and cutting, making it perfect for chord or lead work. In addition to its full blown biting character the Sasori is also capable of producing some ripping gated synth-like textures that sound fantastic on drop tuned guitars and bass. If you are looking for a fuzz that is dirty, mean and mighty unclean then the Sasori is for you.
