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.

TC Electronic Integrated Preamp

Here's a loud one for you (I am not responsible for any blown speakers that may happen as a result of you building this thing! haha)! It's a popular preamp and used as a booster by the metal band Meshuggah. It apparently sounds best run at 18v. I didn't include an onboard charge pump since I know a lot of you prefer different methods for that. Should be plenty of room in a 1590B for a daughter board with your preferred charge pump. Schematic can be found here.

  3. works great!
    i used b50k potis for the tone controls, and bc547c for the trannies!
    a little agressive highs, but i have to try it in the studio.
    many thanks again!
    ( it,s always a pleasure to build one of your layouts!)

  4. you,re right " pretty loud" ( even a low cost strat with the cheapest chinese pickups drives your amp insane) hi hi hi

    one question:
    did anybody a single sided pcb layout for the "tiny little giant amp"???
    ( i could buy a double side pcb but i like to do it by myself )
