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.

Blackout Effectors Mantra Overdrive
Here's a great sounding overdrive from Blackout Effectors. It features a 2-band EQ and the standard drive and volume controls. The topology of the circuit is reminiscent of the classic Big Muff, (input amplifier, gain stage, gain stage, EQ, gan recovery stage) but the components are completely different. Here's the schematic for reference. Adjust the trimmers to around 6.2v, then fine tune by ear if necessary.
