I checked out the v1 at some point and found it was very similar to the ross phaser with mods similar to the ones at tonepad. I know they also mention the dod490, but found more similarities to the ross. Check out tonepad's add on stage board if you want deeper.

V3 is based on 3 lm13700 and 1 tl074 same as v2 does, but uses SMT and 1/8w resistors

I already saw these pictures, and believe me, I studied them in great detail. I used Google for a long time before writing here. I was hoping to see something more detailed than these two photos.
The fact that the base is coming from Ross, I already understood and confirmed on these photos, but it seems to me that interesting solutions on the diagram should.
For example, work Sweep. I understand how it is arranged theoretically, but I would really like to see it.
Depth is also interesting. I thought this controller controls the width of the LFO, but it turned out that it really mixes dry and wet signals.
Sorry for my english

Need good photos of the board from two sides.
Let's think about what we have.
1) The site says that this is a 4-stage phaser, then 2 lm13700 are used in the phase shift phase
2) According to different sources - this scheme is based on DOD490 and ROSS Phaser, then 3 lm13700 is used in the LFO section
3) We have 4 channel op amp, if we look at the madbead project, we can understand how it is used
a) Input buffer
b) The virtual ground's buffer
c) Input filter
d) Output filter
Many argue that the sound is more like Phase 90 than Small Stone, so in the filter section, you should expect components that are similar in terms of denominations.

Please use the search funtion -- I merge your message with the relevant thread. There is only a schematic if somebody draw one, still some work to be done.
We could really do with pictures from both sides of the pcb.
