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.

Sunn Buzz SB-1G
Saw this one over on the Tagboard blog and thought I'd give it a go for Fuzz Friday. It's a silicon variation of the Maestro FZ-1. Originals use a single AA battery (1.5v), so I've included 2 voltage diving resistors to drop the the normal 9v supply down to 1.5v. (The yellow trace in the PCB side indicates the 1.5v rail.) Originals used 2N2923 transistors, but I would imagine other low gain transistors will work (hFE range on the 2923 is 90-180). Just mind the BCE pinout. Here's the schematic for reference.
