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.

Catalinbread Naga Viper

Here's a versatile boost from Catalinbread. It has its roots in the classic Rangemaster treble booster, but with a silicon transistor, the Range pot varying the input capacitance, and the Heat pot controlling some of the gain. Check out the thread on FSB for discussion, schematic, etc. This is laid out for board mounted pots with the board mounted vertically.

    1. yes, its a poly film non electro cap. or any non-polarized cap will work

  3. I tried to make it, but it doesn't work, do you have the voltage on C B E?

  4. I've tried this & I cant get the heat control to work

  5. Doesn't work and I am too lazy to debug it but at this point it is safe to say that this should not be listed as verified.

  6. Does anyone know if its possible (should be I guess, but how) to make this without any controls? Just a switch and full power or off.

  7. Can I replace the 2N2222A with a 2SD352?
    The 2SD352 is a NPN transistor too, but it's a germanium transistor.
