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.

TI/UK Germanium transistors:
In 2008 we got a large batch of superb germanium transistors from the UK. These CV7003 transistors were made in the UK by Texas Instruments in 1968 to a military spec. They are not the same Newmarket brand CV7003 that we used in the Beano Boost. These TI/UK transistors have nice medium-high gain and are awesome in the Fuzz Face circuit. They are quite similar to the sound of the High Gain NKTS, but there is no extra charge for these (same price as generic germaniums or silicon).  

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.
