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.

BearFoot FX HoneyBee Overdrive

Almost identical to the BearFoot BlueBerry Bass Overdrive, this version is tuned for guitar. A medium drive apparently inspired by old Supro amps, it delivers warm overdrive that's very sensitive to your pick attack.


  1. Checked ... works well .... beautiful .... the CA3130 provides a special sound, even as a single ci

  2. what do you think in changing the leds or d3-d4 for 1n34a's? what would be the difference?

    1. It will definitely change the sound some. Germanium diodes are going to be a lot softer than LEDs. It's probably best to socket D3-4 and experiment, or wire the diodes up on a switch.

    2. Sure that ill try some and let you know! Btw can you make the layout of the Pearl OD05? If u search Google images u'll find schematics and vero.. this pedal is fantastic by the demos i've Heard on YouTube! Thanks and have Good Day mate!
