Something New Is Coming!
It's got all of the vintage tone of a Wattson Classic Fuzz FY-6, and a whole lot more! It's also
louder than a Wattson Classic Fuzz FY-6. It's got four knobs, and it's small enough to fit
comfortably on a pedal board. On top of all that, it costs less than a Wattson Classic Fuzz FY-6.
What Is It?

Update: May 24, 2013
The enclosures have arrived and we've started
the final assembly. We should be finished with the first build of 100 new pedals before
the weekend is over. Have a look!Farewell, Bob Sweet!
The model name for this pedal is the EFY-6, which loosely translates into
"Enhanced FY-6. Now, the astute observer may notice that the silkscreen on the
enclosure actually says "EYF-6" instead of "EFY-6".
This probably happened when the sheet metal shop translated our drawings into silkscreen
artwork, and it will be corrected on the next build. In the meantime, we've waited too
long to get these otherwise fantastic looking enclosures, and we can't wait several more
weeks to get enclosures without this minor cosmetic error, so we're going to go ahead and
ship the first 100 pedals with this slightly wrong enclosure. However, we can assure you
that the transposition of these two letters does not change the sound of the pedal in
any way, or if it does then there's some mojo going on that isn't sufficiently explained
in our electronics textbooks.
Anyway, we'll begin shipping the pedals to our dealers next week, and have them available
for purchase here on our website within the next couple of days. You can be one of the lucky
people who buy one of these slightly irregular pedals. Maybe they'll get more people to come
to your next gig. Maybe not. Maybe girls will be strangely attracted to the obviously
screwed up model name. Maybe they'll be completely oblivious to the fact that there is anything
unusual about them. Frankly, we have no idea what will happen. If you buy one of these and
something odd does happen be sure to let us know. If it happens to bring you good luck and you
win the lottery then by all means tell us so we can let you know how to make out the check!
Check the Products page over the next two or three days. When you see
we've added the EFY-6 then you'll know the pedals are available for purchase.
We learned of the passing of Bob Sweet, founder of Sweet Sound Electronics, on
Friday, October 24th, 2008.
It was impossible to be involved in the guitar effects business, or be a guitar
player with any exposure at all to boutique effects, and not know about Bob Sweet
and Sweet Sound. Bob was an icon, and his pedals are legendary. On top of all that,
Bob was a really great guy.
Bob was diagnosed with a malignant tumor in January. By August it was looking like he'd
successfully beaten it. Shortly after that, his doctors discovered he had bone cancer,
and it took his life in a few very short months.
We miss you, Bob. Farewell!
