Hi,

I build the same layout shared above. It sound very dull.
Do we already have any verified build reported?

I just made it but doesn´t work well. The output control doesn´t elevate so much the volume in comparison to the original (I have one), the ratio control in its maximun position mutes all sound and the other two controls doesn´t seems to do anything.
I used 2N5088 instead MPSA18 and BF245B instead of 2N5484.

Anyone else made it work?

I assembled the layout, the pedal worked well, some jambs were not noticed. But it works only with 5484, the other tests gave distortions. How to collect Diamond, I'll choose what to define in the case)

I have traced the original pedal... It has been already said that it's a BYOC 5 knob compressor with some minor adjustments.

There you have it all... it's a verified project, start tracing a PCB.

maybe the problem lies in the field effect transistor
Try to set a tri-peak between current and drain
P.S.
Are you sure that the ba6110 and lm13700 are interchangeable?
