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.

VooDoo Lab Superfuzz

It's Fuzz Friday once again, so here's the VooDoo Lab Superfuzz. Despite the name, it's not based on classic Univox fuzz circuit with the same name. Rather, it's a highly modified Jordan Bosstone with an added EQ section. One interesting thing about this one is the fact that Q2 (PNP) has the emitter going to ground, where every other version of the Bosstone has that transistor's collector going to ground. Maybe VooDoo Lab found some extra mojo by doing it that way? Schematic can be found on FSB. I've laid it out for board mounted pots and it will fit nicely in a 1590B.

  1. Probably been asked and answered but what PCB software do you use?

  2. Hello storyboardist. I really love your site and making effect pedals using your layout. Can I ask for the layout of Ehx Soul Food OD?

    1. Just build one of the Klon Centaur layouts. The Soul Food is just a Klone. There are some notes on FSB about the differences, but they're minimal.

    2. Thank you for the reply. If so, does it mean the pot for Drive is also dual-gang? Can it be replaced? Coz my main problem in building klon centaur is that pot value.
      Thanks again for your reply bro.

    3. Yes, the Drive pot is a dual-gang. I have heard of people just using 2 separate 100k pots instead of the dual-gang though. Give you more control, or so I've read.

    4. I recommend separate potentiometers for setting the sound more opportunities. Thank you for your effektslayuts layouts, soldered more than 20 pedals !!!
