Sunn amps are no longer produced. They were pretty up market in their day. Their website seems to link to fender which kinda gives me the bought out vibe.

I saw some Sunn equipment while on a missions trip in Mexico. It was PA stuff though, a simple power amp and two FOH speakers. It said something like "by Fender" on them, so I gathered that Fender made Sunn stuff. Never seen anything other than in that one Mexican town....

Fender bought them !
Tone is all ...... well probably 75%, in your fingers.
The rest depends on your wallet's thickness !!

Keep the faith, baby!!

the doom metal god Wino uses a sunn and says its the best amp for his styal. Hes tried everything and that is the only thing that will do it. When i was talkin to him he said the model he uses has a pull switch that turns on the fuzz/overdrive.

Hendrix started with Sunn. They wouldn't increase their volume output so he went to Marshall.
It's a fine line between clever and stupid.

yep, http://www.wtv-zone.com/ruexperienced/gallery2/march16.jpg . No idea about the Marshall part though.


They're basically an company started in the 60s in the time of the larger concerts when musicians realized that a 30W Vox AC30 was no longer enough (the era of the Marshall Plexis for example) so they started on the various types of stacks.

I'm pretty sure King Buzzo uses Sunn amps.

yeah some Sunns sound very nice - you can get a good deal on an all tube amp if you look around for them (same with most off brands too though - like silvertone for example)
