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.

Menatone Blue Collar
Here's an oldie but a goodie from Menatone. The Blue Collar was released around the same time as the Red Snapper and is more compressed and focused in comparison. It's also based around the Tube Screamer without the input buffers and with several mods. This layout reflects a newer version of the Blue Collar, but the older one can be built on the same board. Just increase the input cap to 100n, omit the 56p cap from pin 5 to ground, lower the output cap to 100n, and use an A250k pot for the Volume control. Here's the schematic for reference.
