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.

Here's a really nice optical compressor from Demeter. It offers vintage studio compression that's very transparent and a fairly simple simple build as well. The trimpot sets the gain of the compressor's preamp stage. If the signal is distorted, turn down the trimmer till it's clean. Here's the schematic for reference.
