Update March 2, 2017: Benoit updated his schematic and code recently, so I've updated the layout to reflect that, as well as the hyperlinks above to the correct code.
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.

PIC Relay Bypass
If you feel like getting into a bit of programing with your pedal building, this is probably a good place to start. The legwork was done and graciously shared by Coda Effects. It uses a PIC micro-controller to trigger a relay and LED indicator. To learn how to program the PIC12F675 read the original blog post on Coda Effects. Benoit has since updated the schematic, adding a photoFET to get rid of a pop that happened when triggered. So you'll need to read and use the code from this post as well. Thanks again to Benoit for sharing his code and all his hard work!
