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.

EchoPathetic

The EchoPathetic was designed by FSB member Allesz (designer of the Crap-Fi Delay and Dirty Punk Repeater). His previous designs use the PT2399 delay chip, but this one is full analog. There's an input buffer based around one side of TL072, then the signal goes onto the 3102 and 3205 chips. It's designed to be a buffered effect with the footswitch just turning on and off the delay section, but I figure more people will want to build it with true bypass. For more info, check out this thread over on FSB.

  1. thanx a lot for the effort .... i have a request .... protone body rot II great pedal for metal I've got it as a Veroboard but i need it as a printed circuit :)

  2. I've gotta order some 3205s yet, can anyone confirm for me how the noise level is? On FSB he describes a "faint whine" at longer repeats, in the recording I hear piercing high frequencies haha.. To each their own, I just wanna know exactly how pathetic it's going to be :)
    Actually sounds really great with increased feedback and I'd enjoy this super simple approach to having the analogue delay I've been putting off building.

    1. It is does have highs not piercing but very bright yet still warm also there is a faint whine at longer repeats , this would be a great delay if that whine could be fixed maybe a clock trimmer like madbeans aquaboy???

  3. I just finished this one, it's very beautiful-sounding to my ears. IMO, nothing beats the lushness of these MN chip analog delays. This one is no exception. I like that it's not trying to be some pristine, crystal-clear delay. It's warm and just a tiny bit crappy, exactly what I like :)
    Thanks for the awesome layout, storyboardist!

    1. Here are some photos of my build using the PCB layout:
