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.

Way Huge Fat Sandwich

"Way Huge" not only describes their enclosures, but also many of their circuits! Not quite as big as the Pork Loin, but still a monstrosity in its own right. 1590BB unless you wire all the pots offboard, then it'd fit in a 125B ok. Schematic and all that jazz here on FSB.

    1. The 071 might work, but the 7031 is CMOS based, where as the 071 is JFET based. YMMV

  4. I gotta say... would it not be better to have the trimmer controls on the outside... I really dont like the idea of tonal controls etc inside the box.

    1. You can always wire the trimmers off board if you want them externally.

  5. The CD4049 pins are wrong, look at the schematic and datasheet. The inputs of second three inverters are pins 9,11,14, not 10,12,15.
