    i just got the Sunface BC-108 Monday night and i cant stop playing it! i picked it up from devil-tone's and got home about 12:30am, i was anxious to hear it so i plugged it in my Superbass on 1 and it sounded great even at low volume. very smooth and creamy, and the cleanup hangs with some of the germanium fuzzes ive played. the harmonics in this one is unlike any other silicon FF ive tried, good sustain and very polite for a Si, not spitty and sputtering(that may be your thing, not mine). i made a clip BOG style and some Loverman for Mass. fuzz is cranked and im using the guitar volume the whole time. (yeah i know i missed parts, timings off, im humming.)
    blah blah :p

    Sounds great! That's the first song I have been planning on messing around with when I get home with this Huckleberry that arrived at the office today- definitely the most badass song intro ever when the fuzz guitar comes in...

    I thought it sounded fine, but if it becomes a problem you could get one of Electro-Harmonix Hum Debuggers that are coming out sometime in the immediate future...

    Dude,
    Before you even THINK about selling this one, you're gonna need notarized signatures from both Eric and Me! :MMM

    This one pedal has ruined me on all Silicon fuzzes. It has to be the best I have ever heard. I can't hear your clip at work, but I am sure it is amazing. Tell us again your thoughts on this vs the Gypsy Fuzz?
    Congrats!
    Nick

    That would have to be the best Hendrix tone and playing I've ever heard!
    It is absolutely stunning...

    Awesome job!!! You can tell you were playing at very low volumes as you can hear the pick against the strings! It should sound even better louder.

    You did an awesome job showing the variations from the beginning with cleanish low fuzz settings to the later fuzzier parts, then nice and clean at the end.

    Glad you like it, have fun and keep on jammin on Jimi!!!

    Pedal sounds great. Great guitar playing too. Sounded a heckuva lot like Jimi. Where did you pick up all the chops? Just by ear? :JAM
