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.

Jordan BossTone

This one was a request. It's another layout for Jordan BossTone, but with onboard pots. Because of the onboard pots I was able to add an anti-popping pull down resistor on the input. Q1 is NPN silicon (so 2N2222 or 2N3904) and Q2 is PNP silicon (2N2907 or 2N3906). The pot centers are 1.2 inches (≈ 3cm) apart. You can use this same layout for the EHX Satisfaction fuzz by leaving out the clipping diodes (1N4148s).


  1. Hi!
    I think the connection between the two 18k resistors is missing.

    1. That's true. I built it and it didn't work at first time, but when i soldered 18k resistors, it's all good. Thank you!

  2. Hi, I know it has been verified already, but just wanted to confirm that it is a great sounding pedal. There is just mod I would like to add a 4,7k resistor in series with lug 1 of the Attack Pot and Ground to get rid of feedback noise that might appear for some when the Attack pot is near zero.
