    Willing to pay of course. I tried to rehouse it into a smaller box (which I did before with another unit successfully) but a connection broke and I'm sure I re-soldered it wrong cause it sounded weird, now I just can't get it to work. It's been sitting for a few years broken now and don't recall the re-soldered point.
    These are rare oddballs I know so any help or direction? I did reach out to Analogman, just waiting to hear back.

    you could try and contact Brad/Creepy Fingers.

    Do you have a good local guitar and/or amp tech? One that actually understands electronics? I’ve had a couple great local techs that were able to repair my vintage Echoplex and simple pedal repairs like foot switches and true bypass wiring.

    Why does it sound weird? Can you describe it? If you were able to find a schematic, repairing it wouldn't be hard.

    Maybe it's just a bad solder joint? Check all the joints.

    Have you tried contacting the manufacturer?

    I think Dice Works closed shop several years back.

    Check the completed Reverb listings. There’s one or two with nice clear gut shots. Maybe that will help you determine where the wires go.

    Thank you. I got it going on an old listing photo.

    Alchemy Audio if you hit a brick wall. Quick turnaround and good pricing for me.

    You might try contacting Pete at Pete’s Pedals in St. Louis, he’s on Facebook.
