"I am a fan of concise pedals with few knobs. I won't use a pedal with several knobs - that shows that the designer didn't know how to finish the pedal and left that for the customer. Pedals that are elegant in their simplicity are best." - Mike Piera 

We're huge fan's of Connecticut-based Analogman and are proud to represent Mike Piera's pedals! Analogman Effects are legendary in the industry and for good reason - these are some of the best sounding, reliable, and well thought out pedals available today.

The Sun Lion is one part Sun Face and one part Beano Boost. If you're in any way a fan of old-school 60s guitar tones, this is your pedal. The Sun Face side is Analogman's Fuzz Face circuit, though way higher quality than most Fuzz Face's you'll find on the market. The Beano Boost isn't a distortion but a true boost - it excites certain frequencies and pushes your amp into rich tube distortion. Pair the two and you'll cut through any mix! Awesome pedal! 


  • True Bypass on both sides
  • Two 3PDT stomp switches, one for each side. Either or both can be used
  • Status LED on each side
  • Your choice of Germanium transistors, selected for best tone and low noise on Sunface side
  • NOS Germanium transistor, selected for best tone and low noise on Beano side
  • High quality RE’AN British input and output jacks, top mounted for pedalboards
  • Battery disconnected when INPUT cord removed (input is on the right)
  • Sun Dial bias control is standard
  • Optional ON/OFF battery switch integrated into BEANO VOL knob, so you don't have to unplug pedal if it’s in a pedalboard
  • No standard Power jack as these are detrimental to the ultimate tones, and dangerous due to positive ground. See our Sunface page for more info on powering positive ground pedals
  • Battery should be a cheap non-alkaline general purpose battery, as found in the dollar stores. These will sound better than an alkaline
  • Size is 4.75" wide, 3.75" long, and 1.5" tall not including switch etc (about 2 1/8" tall to the switch)
