Hi all,
Need help identifying the place/date of manufacture, pot and inductor info as well would be appreciated.

Any replacement pot/inductor ideas are certainly welcome!

You're looking for a 100K ICAR Taper potentiometer and perhaps a Whipple inductor.
125k/150k for hotter.

It looks to be late '90s. The 'green dot' inductor is actually not too bad, better than the Red Fasel. The Whipple may improve the sound but not by much. I make these statements from direct experience. The silver OEM potentiometer is very good too, no need to replace.
That 1PDT switch however needs to go.

Thanks for the info! Might you know when this was made?

Also, where did you learn about the green dot inductor? Fun stuff!

Just modding and comparing. If you really want to change the character of your pedal, socket the 6 holes where the transistors go and start trying different combinations of transistors. Take accurate notes on your findings and be careful not to obsess over it.
