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.

Sprinkle Drive

Stumbled across the schematic for this recently. It's takes inspiration from the Sparkle Drive with the clean blend function but uses a different drive section. I thought it was interesting and drew up a layout with board mounted pots and it'll be an easy fit in a 1590B.


  1. Great timing! I was just in the process of trying to design a clean blend overdrive/distortion. Good to have another reference.

  2. Hi there! I work with Technical website, we would like to do an exchange of website links with your blog and feature you as a site of the day or Featured Site on (you can see samples of featured sites at our website). Is this of interest to you?

    Hope to hear from you soon. Please Email us.



  3. Hi!
    I build it with BAT41 for clipping, and some tweaks, like a mosfet boost, on the clean side of the circuit !!
