Man, I've wanted to put together one of these for a long time (it's near impossible to grab one locally).

Nice of you to post the shots, man.

I see a CD4013, LM741, LM386 (JRC variant), 10uF cap (blue), 2x 10k resistors (light brown), can't tell what value the pink resistors, transistor, diode, pots and the grey cap show and there's no underside so I can't trace it (is the back of the board covered with something?).

Does Doug still post around here?

the back of the board is covered with cardboard and appears to be pretty well epoxied together. I don't know anything about fixing pedals and I don't wanna risk harming it :( sorry

There's a voltage regulator in there. No transistor.
A couple .01uf caps, a .1, a couple 47uf, a 10uf.
The 741 is massively abused...as is the 386.
The cardboard is hot glued on, you may be able to pop it off,
But there is a resistor on the bottom of the board that may rip off.

No pics of the bottom of the board? Looks simple enough to figure out, and an AMAZING PEDAL!
