Thanks a lot! This will be my project over the holidays, if I get the tubes.

I see, you are from Tallinn, I'm from Berlin - not so far away, word is getting smaller! YEAH!

No, the circuit is  no secret at all - just ordinary two tube gain stages like in Fender Champ or others. And I remembered it wrong  - it runs on 12V DC not 24V. I made several mods during building and i think the one in picture below had simple tone control - 10n cap from volume pot to ground. Building your own is fun  - It's so simple circuit and  with point to point wiring and not being afraid to loose the resale value of  original boutique pedal  you can experiment with different components and  values .

Here's the schematic as i remember building it last

Cool! I bought the "Mutterstolz" Peal right now, I think its close in the idear, works with ECC83.... Is your circuit a secret? It would be more fun to build  a tube overdrive be my  own...

Gobi, it's kind of a three in one pedal - boost, overdrive and fuzz. Fuzz is generated with germanium diodes after two tube gain stages by activating left foot switch. There's Volume knob in the middle (it goes to eleven ;-) ), Gain and Tone (Big Muff Pi) knobs. Tube is 12 AT7 running from  24 Volts DC
