Wattson Classic Fuzz FY-6 Now In Stock!

Yes, it's true! The Wattson Classic Fuzz FY-6 is the most visually and tonally accurate reproduction of the famous Shin-ei FY-6 produced by any pedal maker, and we're building them again!

The Shin-ei FY-6 was sold as an OEM product to more than a dozen music electronics companies in the late 1960's and early 1970's. Those companies bought FY-6 pedals from Shin-ei, sometimes with a custom paint finish, applied their own name plate, and resold them as original products. Two of the most famous rebadged versions of the FY-6 are the Univox Super-Fuzz (a favorite of Pete Townshend), and the Shaftesbury Duo-Fuzz (a favorite of Steve Hackett). The Wattson Classic Fuzz FY-6 perfectly captures the look and tone of these legendary classics, but adds modern features like an LED to indicate when the effect is on, a standard 5mm x 2.1mm DC power jack, and a convenient battery drawer so you can change batteries without opening the case.

We've teamed up with a new sheet metal shop that is now making our FY-6 enclosures using a heavy gauge steel alloy that resists rust much better than the steel we were using before. The sand texture powder coat is also more rugged than before. We're really happy with the new enclosures, and we think you will be too!

You can buy the Wattson Classic Fuzz FY-6 here, or through any of our fine dealers.

Wattson Escape Velocity Overdrive!

It's here! The Wattson Escape Velocity is not just another Tube Screamer clone. It's the Tube Screamer that Ibanez wishes it had released!


Because it has all of the characteristics that make a Tube Screamer sound really good on most amps, while adding the right mods to make it sound really great on the rest of the amps. Low noise pre and post amps, better bass response, the ability to eliminate the mid hump completely, the ability to adjust the clipping threshold so you can play hard without having to overdrive hard, plus a wide operating voltage that provides enough headroom to handle even the hottest pickups!

Our buddy Brian demonstrates the new Wattson Escape Velocity overdrive using variety of different guitars and pickups in the video below. Check it out!

You can buy the Wattson Escape Velocity here, but you better hurry because this build will sell out fast! Click here to learn more!
