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.

Devi Ever Torn's Peaker

The Devi Ever Torn's Peaker is a versatile dirt box, ranging from smooth and crunchy at low gain settings, to thick distortion/fuzz tones as the texture control is increased. The Torn's Peaker is very close to a couple other Devi circuits (Aenima, US, and Never Drive) and it only takes a few modifications to get the Torn's Peaker to the other circuit specs. Here's the schematic from showing the differences between the 4 circuits, and the modifications are listed in the layout image below.


  1. Thanks for the layout. I've built it but I'm getting lot's of noise, when volume is at max the noise is somewhat reduced (grounding?), also when I move the texture I get some silence for a while. I already reviewed everything, any ideas on what might be wrong?

  2. Hi! just build this today and it is working pretty well. The only problem i have is noise when the texture pot is maxed out or at 0 (no idea why). Also i socketed Q2 because i ran out of mpsa18's. Now using a 2n3904, which i think is good, i like this pedal with a little less gain.

    Boxed it and put it on my board. Thanks for the layout!
