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.

Mid-Fi Electronics Clari(not)

Here's the Clari(not) from Mid-Fi. It's a delay/vibrato/fuzz... thing that's pretty cool, and the sibling of the Pitch Pirate Deluxe. It uses an LM386 amplifier that pushes a fairly standard PT2399 delay and an optical vibrato. I've laid it out for on-board pots mounted from the solder-side and you should be able to squeeze it in a 1590B. Schematic can be found here.

    1. That's a good place to start. You'll probably want to socket it in case it needs any tweaking.

  2. Woops something went wrong there. Anyway, I wanted to say that out of all the PCB manufacturing guys your circuits most definitely have the coolest names! And the circuits are great too ofcourse ;) Keep up the good work!

  3. Great job for publishing such a beneficial web site. Your web log isn’t only useful but it is additionally really creative too.

  5. Hello!
    I just finished this project, great pedal!
    I find two mods, that make sound better:
    - replace cap between 9-10 legs of 2399 from 100nF to 680nF for more repeats
    - replace 1K LED resistor to 2,7K get more range of vibrato
    - yes, socket for LDR-LED is good

    And I have one question: how add control pot for fuzz?

    1. I found a 2k linear pot (wired as a variable resistor) between pins 1 and 8 on the LM386 works great.

    2. Thanx! Its helps, but some fuzz still present on low strings, I think it may be from 2399 or one of the caps...

  6. why I have a fuzz sound all the time in effect mode? I did that schematic like is in this page. Any solution? Thank u!
