I got my CV7005 Sun Face last week. It's my first fuzz and I'm really bonding with it.
I was reading on Milke's Sunface page that most of the old NKT's were actually re-labled CV7005's, and I was wondering if that means that all of his old (now sold out) NKT's were actually CV7005's all along? I sold my white dot a few years ago, but I still have a white dot high gain, which I don't think I'll ever sell.
Love my CV7005... No idea how close it is to NKT's other than what Mike has on the page, which I'm assuming is pretty dead on. As good as fuzz gets.
Next week will be a good one... My CV7005 Sunface should be landing at the end of the week!
In the meantime...
It took me years to decide I'm really not a fuzz guy, but Mike's NKT275 Sunface was far and away the best I tried over that period. If he tells you the CV is identical, it's going to be a special pedal for sure!
Oh, I'm not questioning Mike or feeling uneasy at all about the purchase... as I've said before, everything I've bought new or had modded by/from Mike has never been short of amazing and spot on his description.
I had to sell my SF collection over time, and I'm overjoyed to not have to pay the current prices for the used NKT275 to get one back...
I super stoked and giddy as a school girl!!!!
What is the going rate for a replacement NKT275 with those dark smoky tones?
I need to replace one with Sundial.
I had a 2010/2011. I wonder if that was an original or as pointed out in the update in fact a CV7005?
The red dot NKT275 have the dark/smokey tones.
The CV7005 are identical to the white dot NKT275 according to Mike, so they would be fat and smooth with sparkly clean up... Just the opposite of the red dot.
Yeap that would be it so, I'd need to track a NKT275 Red down.
If you bought it new from Mike, I'd contact him and see what he says.
I've got a BC183 Sunface, love it. Took me some time to bond with it, had to adjust internal trim pots, but paired with my rig and some of my other pedals, really nails a great Hendrix tone.
Need to get my hands on a CV7005 and see how it stacks up! I've tried just about every sunface under the sun, including a bunch of white dot normal gains. (Sort on an obsession, I have to admit.) Covered pretty much every year of the NKT-275s, starting with their 2004 model, and it's fun to observe the variation. The low to normal to hi gain categories seem to be more of a continuum. My absolute favorite is a 2008 NKT-275 hi gain, which sound almost identical to a normal gain, just with a notch more gain on tap. It's almost like a "low hi-gain" NKT! Cleans up almost as well as normal gain. The newer hi gain NKTs seem more gainy, at least those that I've tried. Anyways, fabulous pedals, all of them! I've tried a bunch of fuzz face klones, but none as good as the Analogman NKT series. Maybe with the possible exception of ChaseTone Red Stardust, which sounds and behaves almost identical to my 2008 "low hi-gain" NKT-275. If you see one of those in the Emporium, don't hesitate. And, finally, Throbak Fuzz Haze is another fabulous contender.
Tracking says that my CV7005 will be here Friday
I've got bass gigs this weekend (2 hours away) and this big snow storm is gonna hit...
I'm SO looking forward to chillin with it on Sunday!!!!!
I've got a session set up and will have some tones up next week.
Can't wait to hear your review... I bet it's gonna sound great !
Thanks!, I hope to do the tones/demo some justice!
I concur.... Sir, your taste for face, is quite similar to mine. Red Stardust is one of very best in class, and the Sun Faces.... Speak for themselves
Hijacking thread to ask for help... Which Sunface would get me close to this sound?
Everyone associates SRV with a Tubescreamer, but this tone is my favorite. I was planning to get an Si fuzz for Gilmour tone, but if a Ge will get me in this Tightrope ballpark, I'll go that route.
Diaz Square Face
My buddy bought that early run Diaz square face off ebay last week- the one that was broken, for $250. Well, John Lyon's currently has the pedal in his possession, and it should be repaired soon. Freddy, do you know what year that pedal first became available to the general public ?
No I don't sorry. Try superslidetail he has a few of them
