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. Power jack is NOT standard, if you choose to add a power jack you can use any Boss style 9V Isolated power source.
  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 Sun Face input.

5 of 5 So good, my neighbors had the police come listen! April 10, 2020
Reviewer: Johnny Silks from Hesston, Ks  
It took 5 weeks after my order was placed to ship, and another 6 days to get here, but patience pays off. Both sides are just as good as you would expect. Even after 6 weeks if anticipation, the sound does not disappoint. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who even thinks they might want one,  and I will most likely buy from Analog.Man again.

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.
