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 - BC183:
The BC183 transistors we got in 2011 are my favorite for a silicon fuzzface. We are still using these transistors as we got a big box of them. They are a little warmer than the BC108 and still have plenty of fuzz. We got a large box of these, each individually hermetically sealed in a foil pack, with the same paint stripes on the back that they used in the original 1969 Fuzz face pedals. I think Eric Johnson has BC183 in the red fuzzface that he used for years, and the new 2012 Dunlop Eric Johnson signature Fuzz Face seems to use a BC183 too.
Jon Carin (Floyd, The Who, Roger Waters, etc) contacted me in 2012, looking for a fuzz that sounds like the giant lap steel on One Of These Days by the Floyd. I recommended the BC183 Sun Face for him and I think he likes it:
"This Sunface is tear-your-face-off unreal but warm. You are the Distortionist. Thanks SO much."
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.
