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.

Electro Harmonix Soul Preacher

There have been a few different iterations of the Soul Preacher. This one follows the version that isn't based around an OTA chip (much like a DynaComp), but is rather much closer to an Orange Squeezer. The original used a buffered bypass, and I've included an extra pad for the buffer out if you want to build it that way. Here's the schematic for reference.

    1. It may work fine as is. But if not, probably some capacitor values. You'd have to experiment.

    1. Yeah, better to just stick with some 1N34As.
