Seans fixed fuzz pedal

Sean gave be a pedal to fix a while ago, I won't name the USA based maker but honestly I have not seen such a shoddy piece of work that somebody has paid their hard earned cash for!  Anyway Sean gave me a new case and the guts of the pedal, had to re-solder most of the joints (terminal strip based circuit), most of the capacitors on the 6 way input cap rotary switch, new input and output jacks, new battery clip, pots resoldered.  Basically remaking the whole pedal!  So what does it sound like?  What is the circuit? A harsh sounding pnp Si Fuzz Face with switchable input cap and clipping diodes attatched to the volume control.
