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.

Analogman King of Tone
Here's Analogman's original version of the King of Tone, a highly regarded overdrive with a few "unobtanium" diodes. It's probably best to socket said diodes to play around with your favorite combinations. Switch A controls the 4-diode array in the feedback loop (much like a Tube Screamer), while Switch B controls shunted diodes (much like a RAT or Distortion +). Originally these were DIP switches, but it makes more sense to me to have these externally.
