The switch is a SPST on/off, by the way.
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.

Keeley Fuzz Head
Over a decade ago Robert Keeley was kind enough to share this design with the DIY community. It's a fairly unique fuzz, with a germanium treble booster at the beginning, a differential amplifier in the middle, and a basic buffer at the output (this is so it will play nice with other effects). Robert's full explanation of the circuit can be found here, however note that the schematic in that document isn't what I used. I used this later one with a tone control, and ended up laying it out with all controls externally. The PreGain control originally was a trimmer because it has a tendency to crackle when turned, but for ultimate tweak-ability I moved it externally.
