Transistor Options:
Hybrid Germanium LOW GAIN RCA/NKT $55 [Add $55.00]Same as Hybrid RCA/NKT but lower gain so cleaner, and not as much fuzz. The NKT's are Red Dot.
Low Gain vintage germaniums, cleans up great $0These will clean up very well when you back your volume down, like the NKT275 that we used to sell. They still get a good amount of fuzz and are low noise.
RCA germanium Higher Gain $10 [Add $10.00]These are the same RCA transistors, but higher gain, a bit brighter and fuzzier.
RCA germanium SUPER HIGH (like silicon) Gain $10 [Add $10.00]Temperature stable and fuzzy like silicon, but warm and clean up quite well.
Red Dot NKT brand transistors, low gain $25 [Add $25.00]These are the same red dot NKT, but they tested out at lower gain.
Red Dot NKT brand transistors, medium low gain $55 [Add $55.00]These are definitely made at the Newmarket factory. They look and sound identical to the old red dot NKT275 we used to have, but have a different part number on them after the "NKT", probably a house number for a specific customer. Some test at higher gains but they are all the same parts.

Analog Man Sun Lion Fuzz Booster

  1. True Bypass on both sides
  2. Two 3PDT stomp switches, one for each side. Either or both can be used.
  3. Status LED on each side.
  4. Your choice of Germanium transistors, selected for best tone and low noise on Sunface side. See our Sun Face ordering page for more info on the optional transistors.
  5. NOS Germanium transistor, selected for best tone and low noise on Beano side.
  6. High quality RE’AN British input and output jacks, top mounted for pedalboards.
  7. Battery disconnected when INPUT cord removed (input is on the right).
  8. Sun Dial bias control is standard.
  9. Optional ON/OFF battery switch integrated into BEANO VOL knob, so you don't have to unplug pedal if it’s in a pedalboard.
  10. Power jack is not standard as these are detrimental to the ultimate tones, and dangerous due to positive ground. See our Sunface page for more info on powering positive ground pedals.
  11. Battery should be a cheap non-alkaline general purpose battery, as found in the dollar stores. These will sound better than an alkaline.
  12. Size is 4.75" wide, 3.75" long, and 1.5" tall not including switch etc (about 2 1/8" tall to the switch).

This effect should not have any non-true bypass effects in front of it. Otherwise, the fuzz’s cleanup function will not work well.

Also available with four jack option, if you want to use a switching system, change the order, or put other pedals in between these two effects. I find that the reverse order (Beano -> Sun Face) is really good for more normal fuzz sounds and you can do that with the 4 jack option by plugging input into the left side (Beano) and adding one short patch cord from Beano output to SunFace input. .

5 of 5 Fuzz-tastic November 11, 2019
Reviewer: Fern from LOS ANGELES, CA United States  
This thing is the real deal! I could not find the right fuzz for my sound until I found the SUNLION. We all know that the  Beano side is awesome, but the Fuzz side is amazing! I did not expect that much output from a fuzz. You will definitely find a place for this on your board! It really adds a certain mojo to your amp. I use a tube-screamer type of drive and I use either side of the Sun Lion as a boost, it depends on my mood. This thing is loud! Do not get to hung up on the Transistors, I have the standard version and this is the best fuzz I have ever played.

5 of 5 SunLion Pedal January 19, 2019
Reviewer: JOHN BELOE from London, Outside US / Canada United Kingdom  
Quickly become my most treasured pedal.

I initially got the pedal for the beano. The fuzz was a nice bonus but I didn't think I'd be into it. I couldn't have been more wrong! The fuzz is incredible...exceptionally addictive. Currently I'm running the internal trim pot turned about a third to half down from wide open. It's still a fuzz but it just makes it so usable. And it makes it easier to stack with the beano. Only complaint is that it would be good to have the trim pot on the outside...there are so many flavours in there.

Stacking with the beano, it's pretty cool...makes things kind of wild. In the low setting it sounds just like the fuzz, but more gainy, in the other settings it just adds so much cut.

The beano by itself is awesome. I don't really use the mid much, but the low I use as a full range boost and the high for me turns my fender tweeds into almost a marshall super lead type sound....very paul kossoff.

All in all can't recommend this pedal enough.

5 of 5 My new favorite dirt pedal September 15, 2014
Reviewer: Jonathan from Manorville, NY United States  
Wow.  The responsiveness of this fuzz to my finger and pick technique (not to mention the kaleidoscope of tones available with even the slightest rolling back of the volume pot) is really unbelievable.  The nuance that this pedal captures (especially with the boost enabled) is not for the faint-of-technique, but all the reward you could ask for is provided in the tone and shape of this sound.  Amazing, I've never owned a pedal exactly like it.  I can't wait for my name to come up on the KoT list!  Thanks, you rock!

5 of 5 Amazing pedal! March 7, 2013
Reviewer: michael nix from louisville, KY United States  
Great pedal! The SunFace side is fat, warm, defined, and it cleans up nicely. The Beano side is total classic rock. Definitely one of the best pedals I have ever purchased.

5 of 5 Sun Lion Best Pedal Ever! January 28, 2013
Reviewer: Uncle Donald from San Jose, CA United States  
This is the best pedal ever. I went to order a Beano boost. In viewing the Analog.Man site I decided to add some fuzz. I sent Mike some questions about transistors. He suggested I go with the standard model. What  a breath of fresh air, suggesting what was less expensive, verses taking an opportunity to gouge you for more money. The boost side was Everything I had hoped for and More. The fuzz side blew me away. Control of the fuzz with my volume pot makes it usable for a bunch of songs. Sometimes I use an Emma DiscumBoBulator and this is the first pedal I've been able to put in front of it without messing with the settings. Analog.Man's pedals are amazing. More amazing is how they do business. Using every opportunity to give you great advise and great products, (verses trying to gouge you for more money), which seems to be norm in today's business. Analog.Man is a breath of fresh air in a sea of scammers and charlatans.
