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.

Jack Deville Deuce Coupe

Here's a modified version of the Deuce Coupe. It's an opamp based drive with a charge pump so the circuit runs off +/-9v. The originals have relay bypass switching and a boost function (that I've not included in this layout). You can probably fit it in a 1590B, but a 125B will be a little roomier.


  1. I built this over the weekend, you need to connect pin 1 and 8 on the LT1054. I used a MAX1044, and once I jumpered the pins it sounded Great.

    1. Cool. Thanks for verifying! Note to future builders that the 1054 and 1044 aren't directly interchangeable. So if you're using the 1054, build it as is, but if you're using the 1044, jumper pins 1 and 8 like Bill did.

  2. thanks for pointing that out I should have started out my reply with, If you use a MAX1044.
