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.

Moosapotamus 360 Fuzz
Here's a bass fuzz designed by Charlie Barth from Moosapotamus.net based on the fuzz section of the classic Acoustic 360 bass preamp. It uses a mix of silicon and germanium transistors. I've made the layout to reflect the combination of transistors specified in Charlie's schematic, but socket and experiment. This layout should fit in a 1590B, but if you want to use a larger enclosure, there's a PCB of this effect for sale here with board-mounted pots.
