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.

Here's a really cool distortion based on Providence Stampede and designed by Kurt Ballou of GodCity Studio. He's actually made his business card a PCB you can build this circuit on, and if you can catch them while they're in stock you totally should. But while they're sold out, you can build one using this layout. Fits in a 1590B or a 125B with top mounted jacks if you prefer.


  1. It can be tagged "verified". Finished soldering it today, works as supposed to, love the sound, can't wait to box it!

  2. I built this, but replaced the 120R with a 47R and C1k pot as suggested in the mod section of the pdf.

    1. The PCB hyperlink in the text links to the original build doc. Schematic is on the last page.
