Analog Man Sun Face is our best selling silicon / germanium fuzz and a favorite at TGT11.
Important to consider is that a germaniumfuzz likes a little gain from the amp - ideal is a Marshall Plexi played loud. As an alternative you can put a light overdrive after the fuzz to simulate an amp played loud.
Silicon fuzz often has more gain than germanium and it generally works better in a clean amp than germanium.
More on this particular transistor - RCA:
RCA germanium transistors : We got these in mid 2018 and the specs and sound are excellent. These are fairly low gain in general, but we have low, medium, and high available. Similar to standard germanium, a bit brighter with more cut than the old white dot NKT275. Quite a bit brighter than the red dot NKT, and also have excellent cleanup. The LOW GAIN RCA really cleans up well, and is not as bright, but still had a good amount of fuzz when you hit it hard. These are probably the best germanium choice for playing in different temperatures, as they are very stable and sound good even when warm. They tend to have a little more white noise but not too bad.
About Analog Man Sun Face:
Analog Man Sun Face is hand-built in the USA in small gold boxes, with their own USA made SUNFACE circuit board which is a VERY high quality board. It is better quality than almost any other fuzzface clone you will find, with shielding, plated through-holes, etc to meet military specs. It also has an internal CLEAN trim pot (white knob). This trim pot acts just like turning down the VOLUME knob on your guitar, to clean up the fuzz. It can be used to preset the sound as with the volume knob rolled back a bit. It also allows easier control of the volume knob on your guitar when the white CLEAN trim pot is turned a bit. It can also be used to kill Radio Frequency Interference, which may be a problem on high gain pedals in some areas, by turning it down a hair. like all our handmade pedals, the Sunface has true bypass, so when off they do not alter your sound at all. The CLEAN trimpot will also allow the sunface to work better after a vintage style wah pedal, without having to use a foxrox wah retrofit.
