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.

Greer Amps Lightspeed
Wondered about this one for a while (but always suspected it was YATS). The best way to describe the Lightspeed (that I can think of anyway) is it's kind of like a Timmy with the bass and treble controls fixed and a simple treble cut tone control added just before the volume pot. The most interesting thing with this is the clipping, with 5 diodes in asymmetrical orientation (3 going one way, 2 going the other). Should fit in a 1590B or 125B nicely with board mounted pots.
