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.

Run Off Groove Uno

I know I've mentioned this to a few people over the past year probably, but I've finally been able to get it edited. That's right, here's my tutorial on how I layout circuits in DIYLC... the first installment at least. The tutorial shows how I created today's layout–the Uno from Run Off Groove. It's a JFET amp emulator of the Boogie Mk I. For the schematic, demo and more info check out the Uno article.


  1. Thanks for the tutorial! Looking forward to pt 2!

  2. Have you uploaded the transfer image yet?

  3. Thanks for the video, it's a great help to me that I'm not very knowledgeable in electronica.
    Are you going to do some video showing how you do the final layouts?

  4. Seriously, how good are run off groove pedals!

  5. Please verify. Layout is correct. has very good sustain with a small boost in front of this pedal.

  6. On the schematic, how did you know which was the source the gate and the drain? The layout looks reversed from the schematic. I really like this tutorial. I'm working on learning how to do this also.

    1. Sorry for the late reply, Jimi. Just google JFET symbol. Gate is the pin with the arrow. Drain is usually on top and going toward voltage with source going down towards ground.
