Analog Man is now making these in their own cases, as the Analog Man Sun Face . They are hand-built in the USA in small gold boxes, with Analog Man's own USA made SUNFACE circuit board, which was made small enough to fit in almost any enclosure. It is better quality than almost any other fuzzface clone you will find, with shielding, plated through-holes, etc to meet military specs.

NTK-275: 
The sound of these NKT275 transistors is quite similar to the other types of germanium transistors that Analog Man use. But the NKT275s have a bit less fuzz, and less high end fizziness. They have a deeper tone and clean up better than any other transistor. If you turn down the volume on your guitar, the NKT275 sound will be totally, sparkly clean without any fuzz remnants. Normally, NKT275 transistors are not high gain, that is why they clean up so well and are so smooth sounding. However Analog Man does have some high gain NKTs they have sorted out over the years, out of the same batch.

Sun Dial Knob:
Analog Man now puts the SUN DIAL on the Sunface to make a 3 knob small gold pedal. The middle knob is on the center of the Sun Face Graphics. It is the exact same function and circuit as the internal BIAS trim pot on the 2 knob model. It is used for keeping the fuzz happy at different temperatures, and with different or worn batteries. They call it the SUN DIAL and the knob is painted to match the pedal. They factory set the SUNDIAL so the face is vertical at their shop temperature (70 degrees or so depending on if it's Winter or Summer!). You can set it by ear, just turn it up until the buzziness goes away as much as you like. Jim Weider has an NKT Sunface with the SUN DIAL and likes to run the sundial higher than the normal setting, he turns it almost all the way up for less fuzz and a purer tone. You can turn it down all the way for a buzzy sound like "spirit in the sky", where the fuzz fizzes out.
