Hey there,
I had found two diodes among the parts that came with my cabinet. They 
are some 13Z6Fs. I searched everywhere, there's no stock for this diode 
anymore. Does anybody know or has ever seen this logo on a diode or 
else? Maybe some chinese, japanese company? (Picture attached)
Thanks for help!

ACK

And Luca has a 1W zener.

Great thanks for that!
I guess it could be hard to get some more of them. I use them for 
clipping in a fuzz circuit and they sound just great. It also says 3.9V 
Zener. The Vf is kind of different from another (one has 0.55V, the 
other 0.7V). May I use some different zeners with those forward voltages 
and achieve the same result?

I don't know, but maybe your zener is aquivalent to BZY92.

Fuzz circuit? Same result? Hmmmm ...

This is not an exact science, and what sounds good for someone sounds 
bad for the next one. Get a few from different manufacturers and just 
try them until you find some that sound the way you like it. Get current 
zeners for a few cent. Avoid wasting your money on historic components 
from that exact manufacturer from dubious resellers.
