To test out different possibilities, I installed transistor sockets, and ended up aligning the trannies as shown in the vero layout. Everything works fine. I can post soundclips and pics later, if needed for comparison.
Please do post sound clips, I'll see if I can too.
I switched all 4 trannies around (the opposite of what is shown in the vero) and the circuit works now.
It's not a totally clean sound, kind of a splat thing going on and some compression as well as chords get very muddy, but it works and I kind of like the sound.
