Transistor Options:

Features

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. No standard Power jack 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. .

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!

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.

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.

Second time around November 4, 2011
Reviewer: Lee McAlister from Wrightwood, CA United States  
I purchased the origional Sun Lion shortly after it came out and wound up selling it because it didnt seem to fit my needs.  I am not sure what the difference is this time, other than my equipment has evolved, but this re-issue sounds fantastic with my current rig.  I currently play a LP custum or PRS Single cut tremelo through a Dr Z route 66.  I also use a Weber Mass attenuator to keep things in control given the dr z is loud as hell.  The sun lion works and sounds great with this setup.  The boost has replaced my zvex SHO and the fuzz side adds as much or as little fuzz as I want.  The lion is very responsive to the guitars volume pot which I love.  This is the only pedal I am using at this time but I do plan to purchase an Astro Tone sometime soon.  I have owned most of analogman's stuff at one point or another and I dont think there are any better built or sounding pedals available.  I have owned Pete Cornish, Landgraff, Klon, Tim, Zvex, ect.
The list goes on and on.
