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.

200th layout! Here's an optical compressor from EQD with a lot of controls. There are still a few question marks regarding this circuit over on FreeStompboxes.org, but DiamondAmps (the tracer) said he got it working on a breadboard. If any more updates are made to that thread I will adjust the layout accordingly. Apparently the hardest part with this circuit is choosing the LDR. The tracer used a Silonex NS-32 SR3. In theory this will fit in a 1590B, but I'd go with a 125B like the original. On board pots can be used and are in the same configuration as the original. Couldn't make it work without a few jumpers sadly, but I wanted to keep the footprint down.
