Just use some Schottkys.  Only way every production unit will sound the same.

I remember when you used to have to go into a music shop and try every fuzz box to find the one that actually worked properly.

Why are you using them anyway ?  Best use for them was for strengthening tarmac which we used to do in the 1960s with all the dead ones :-)

Hmm, I wonder if they "enrich the sound by adding extra harmonic content"

like the Ge diodes do here?
