I wonder if Earthquaker transposed the 4n7 and 470p or if the schem is wrong ...

I just built it with the pedalpcb board, works well and sounds like the demos...?
Switching the caps might be a good thing to try

Scheme is correct and caps are ordered as built by EQD. I did the trace based on photos by a member at Tagboard FX. Here's a pic of the trace I did using DIYLC.

Although it is interesting that the last 2 caps are reversed compared to the univibe. Smarter minds may tell us what, if any, difference that makes.

they're not the only ones to mess with the values in a uni-vibe alike, I just haven't seen a gut shot of an original for comparison and that bit stuck out to me.
