Default anyone who can replicate a guitar effect for me?

Hello

I have a custom-made guitar distortion effect which has a unique sound that I like very much. Now, the problem is that it is totally custom-made, and even the schematics is unique, I cannot download it from anywhere. I have been using it for 10 years now, and the parts are becoming worn.

Can anyone replicate it for me with new and quality parts? I can send the effect via UPS or some other service. Ready to negotiate a price.

Thanks!

I doubt that the circuit is unique.
It should be quite easy for a competant electronic engineer to refurbish the pedal.

The problem is that in using new parts etc, the sound you like so much may change.

I agree with Poynton. Would a close up photo of both sides of the board be possible?

Thanks!
Yes, I know that most probably the sound will change as I have the parts replaced. Hopefully it will not be a drastic change.
I will post photo of both sides of the board asap.

I'm uploading photos from the effect. Unfortunately, the board is positioned so that there is no clear view of the parts. I cannot remove it to take a photo of it.

For members with slow internet connections, please.

Kind of a waste of time posting a blurry picture.
