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.

EarthQuaker Devices Talons

The Talons is a great sounding overdrive pedal and is EQD's take on the Marshall Guv'nor. FSB member Zedsnotdead traced it and requested a layout with board-mounted 9mm pots to fit in a 1590B. As per usual, the pots should be mounted on the solder-side of the board. Watch out for the EQ pots as they are oriented 180º differently from the top row of pots. The in and out pads ended up in a bit of a weird spot, but shouldn't be an issue. (You'll just have to use a little more wire to get to the footswitch.)


  1. Great work man!!
    But watch the missing link connecting the other side of LED and 100pF.
    Cheers!!! :)

  2. Thanks for catching that, Zed. Fixed! Should be good to go now.
