weird, the only thing i can think of is that it is because this was a limited run of them that was supposedly tuned a little different, i think it said that it was closer to the vintage sound. having the board gooped seems like a bad idea, there are so many trim pots that you wouldn't have access to.
is yours a chicago iron blue box one?

The trim pots all have little stickers over the screwdriver adjustment to keep the paint out. Their PCBs have card contacts so they plug them in and calibrate on a test rig before wiring into the pedal so it can still be recalibrated. I seriously doubt there is any difference in the circuits. More likely that DAG asked for a custom color that they could charge an extra $200 for.

totally, i would guess they sound the same too, it wouldn't make any sense to not tune them all the same.

so here are the values of the IC's / Transistors i could make out...sadly a couple were sanded off and painted over it seems.

you can right click and view the image in full, but the only thing that seems to be cut off is the green circled "2N560 - 520"

sure thing, hopefully those numbers check out...they were hard to read, it looks like they are all painted over to make them extra hard to make out.

Sorry for waking this forgotten thread :D but has anyone built one or gotten farther with the schematic?
