The diodes are easy. Most any germanium type will work.
The transformers are the hard part. While almost any transformer that I
tried worked to some degree, I don't have any specs or types to try or look

Generally my ring mod http://www.synthfool.com/ringmod.html
page is there for education and experimentation.
If you want a real ring mod, I'd suggest using an LM1496.
