This is a library of perfboard and single-sided PCB effect layouts for guitar and bass. I'm not an electrical engineer by any stretch of the imagination, just a DIY'er who likes drawing layouts. It is meant for the hobbyist (so commercial use of any of these layout is not allowed without permission) and as a way to give back to the online DIY community.

Klon Buffer

Who doesn't love a Klon, right? Here's the buffer stage of the Centaur. The original Klon uses one side of a TL072 for the buffer and the other for gain stage. If you're building the just the buffer, you can get away with a TL071. I've laid out a perf and PCB for each.


  1. built both but i only have tl072 at the moment, its verified to work, and does very well, im putting this in my triple muff madness machine !

    1. You gotta post some pics of that beast when you get it done. It's gonna be epic.

    2. wish i knew how to post pictures, the thing cant use the 3 muff at once :-/
      but i was kind of expecting that :-)
      its more of a wich one do i feel like using and test bed..

      lets try ;

    3. That thing looks awesome. You got any gut shots?

  2. you know what i'm going to test this one because i''ve PCB made for this one !
    But in my case what should i've to use ? 71 ou 72 ?
    Please see other post on dual posts … :)

  3. Probably us a 072 since that's what you'd be using in the dual version.

  4. OK !!! this one work very good !! Thanks man
    Please see one post at dual section …

  5. I just put a switchable TL071 Klon buffer in my Korg pitch black tuner thanks to your layout! Really appreciate the size of it. Thanks for the work!!
