After much digging, I found an extremely well documented PCB which can be configured to many different versions including the V1 Triangle, V2 Rams Head, V2 Ram's Head Violet Era, V3 Big Muff, Green Russian, or Civil War w/power booster... you can even tweak it to work similarly to the Black Arts Pharaoh... so lots of headroom to try different things. Best of all, the PCB is only $8, so you can experiment away on the cheap. Speaking of cheap, I highly recommend Tayda electronics, you can get most of what you need for a fraction of the price that Mouser or Digikey would charge. All the resistors, switches, op-amps, sockets, etc. I've purchased there work perfectly well. I do usually splurge on name-brand electrolytic caps from Mouser (e.g. Nichicon or Panasonic), but for everything else, Tayda has you covered.
