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.

Craig Anderton Tremolo
To say Craig Anderton's body of work is vast is probably an understatement. But within that body are several DIY classics, and this tremolo is no exception. This is a modified/updated version, specifically in the power section with a +/- 9v charge pump. The vactrol in the original is VTL5C1, but some combination of home rolled LDR/LED combo will probably work (you'll just have to experiment a bit). Schematic here. It'll be snug, but it should fit in a 1590B.
