I have a NKT275 Analogman sunface which sounds the same as my friend’s Pigdog Spaceface with NKT275

Can also recommend Charlie Pedals as a builder he just made me a Supa Mk2 which is absolutely killer (thanks Doc for publicising Charlie Pedals, what a nice guy and sick builder)

I had my eyes on Charlie Pedals stuff but with brexit now I should pay VAT and other duty stuff... very annoying! :(

Diaz...LOL! GFL finding a real one of those. It would be a nice score!
There's several on Reverb now...you'll pay an arm and a leg is all. :hihi: I sold my last two Diaz' this year since pedal prices are nuts.

Haha, there obviously are options! Thanks guys!
Is the Analogman Sunface on the same level as the offerings from more specified fuzzbuilders you think?

I had a red dot sunface - also a Fuzzy Haskins NKT, Sonus 1966 NKT, Maggot Brain BC183L, '67 IVOR NKT. Always a germanium guy.

The BC183l Maggot is still the one around! It's on my board as well (pedaltrain JR). Not too big at all. I'd Try to score a Maggot - for small Fuzz Face. Temp stable too... Ask around here - a few forum members are selling some right now on Reverb.

Surface is good - but I found it not as clear in presence as some of the other builders listed. More compressed and not as open.

Sunface is top of the heap for most - and for good consistent reason - but if you hang around this parts I think there are better options.

Oxfuzz or Sonus if I have to use a small box - by far the best and I've tried 'em all believe me!

I had a oxfuzz about 11 years ago with NKT274 transistors. I liked it but it was tuned a little dark for my tastes
