Did you end up ever digging in to Dan's NuFuzz? This thread was such a tease! =)

Well... it's a 'school night' and I'm a wee pissed... so this may be way off.. but I took a shot at PCB'ing the hand-drawn schematic..

Please correct / modify / create pariah..

Is the 10uf on the switch a power filter-er or is it in the audio path?

I am the person who traced the Rosac chip. The oddball resistor values were measured individually,
that is separate from the circuit. Of course I had to destroy the chip to do that. I have made
several of these clones with various NPN's such as 2n4401, 2n3904, 2n5088, and they all sound
pretty similar. The values were measured with a Fluke DMM and I boldly guess are odd due to
the fabrication process. By the way, it took 2 days using dental picks. The transistors were
actual TO-92 case unmarked plastic. Hope this helps.

i just building one with 2N3904's and it sounds just like all of the video demos that i've heard of it.

here's my layout:
