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 4-Knob Compressor
The Keeley 4-Knob Compressor is a modified Ross Compressor and is highly regarded in the stompbox world. It's only down side is the use of the obsolete CA3080 chip. These can be hard to find and a little pricy. However if you're unable to find one, or unwilling to pay for one, use the LM13700 chip (which is 2 3080s in one) and this conversion daughter board. The schematic can be found here. If you have a hard time getting 150k pots, use a 250k pot with a 390k resistor in parallel (between lugs 1 and 3).
