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.

Mosrite FuzzRite

Almost a year ago I laid out the silicon version of the classic FuzzRite. Lately though, I decided to redo it after some discussion with Gabriel Monteiro over the 22k resistor. To see that discussion check out the first layout page for this circuit. Our discussion (which in all honesty was mostly a bunch of breadboarding on his part, thanks buddy!) had nothing to do with redoing the layout, but it made me look at the old layout enough that I wanted to redo it, and when I couldn't find my original DIYLC file for it, I had the perfect excuse. So here's the FuzzRite again. This time much more orderly 1590a friendly.

I also redrew the schematic to get my head around it a little better and to also number the pot lugs (which is lacking in most schems and seemed to be a source of some confusion on my part when I originally drew the circuit up).


  1. this is the same of catalinbread, or not even close???

    1. I can't for sure say they're the same. But my guess is if Catalinbread's isn't a straight clone it's really close to one.

    2. they even use the same name!!!!!jajajaj
      thanks dude ;) (gracias viejo)

  2. Well, it works, thanks! Time for fiddling with trannies.

  3. I TOTALLY recomends to use 2N2222 in Q1, and 2N3904 in Q2.
