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.

Lovepedal/Hermida Audio Zendrive
Got a request for this one. The Zendrive is a low-to-medium gain overdrive, delivering blues to jazz tones. It has an interesting clipping section, using a combination of diodes and MOSFETs in an asymmetrical arrangement. I've drawn the layout to accommodate board mounted pots (from the solder-side) and it will fit easily in a 1590b.
