I know, it's not even released yet, but I thought I'd post a request so that:
1) folks would be aware of this pedal, and
2) maybe someone would be inspired to get one and trace it out

I really love the tone of this thing.....

Yeah this pedal is very interesting... seems like it has some amp modeling thing going on that the fuzz is driving, so this pedal may be something for Fender users :P

Point 2, Yeah that could be you.
It's fairly straight forward, if you want to start it , press start. You can work out the rest of the controls for yourself !

No silicon heaven ? preposterous ! Where would all the calculators go ?

looks like there are 4 H11F1 OptoCouplers. Not sure what 4 would be used for.

The black one is maybe a charge pump. If the white ones are h11fX, we talking about a fet based circuit. 4 fet circuit with led side control?

I don't think so. The white ones seems to be sop6 so they not are j201. They are jfet optocouplers.
But: for example 4n25 and similar also been fabricated in white sop6 encapsulation and are bjt optocouplers.
