If anyone want to make the Cloven Hoof, use 2N5089 for Q1 and 4, use MPSA13s instead of germaniums for Q2-3, replace D3-4 with 1N4148s, and remove the 470pF cap by Q2.
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.

EarthQuaker Devices Hoof
In honor of it being Pi Day, I thought a Big Muff layout would be appropriate. While not an EHX Muff, the EQD Hoof is a BMP variant. It uses germanium transistors as well as LEDs in place of the typical silicon diodes in the 2 gain stages. It also has a Shift control, which allows you to boost the mids typically scooped in the standard BMP. Pots can be board mounted from the solder-side of the board using right angle PCB pots.
