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.

Ibanez CM5 Classic Metal Distortion

This one was a request. I removed the input/output buffers and the original switching scheme to allow for true-bypass switching. There is one jumper (the original had 6!) and a couple things that bug me, but I'm probably the only one who would care, so I won't worry about it.


  1. Good job!

    Unfortunately the tone is not working ...

    Some light?


    1. Try increasing the value of the two 22nF caps to 220nF.

  2. В схеме имеется ошибка. Приставка не работает.

  3. Can I request for DOD-FX59 Thrash Master please. WWould be so apreciate, thank you.
