A thing I've done that I suggest you to do is the following: remove R46 and R54 (both 27k) and replace them with 22k, wire one side to the base connections of Q13 and Q14 and the other to the external-lugs of a 10k trim, whose center-lug is wired to ground. Actually this was found on some Superfuzzes as well.
Now with this you can tune the octave/ring-mod effect of the fuzz to be more o less present. Just try it, you won't be disappointed

Clippers: D4,D5. Change to some nice germaniums.
Notch filter: Cut, replace and jumper.
Then move the output to the output of IC1a.
