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.

Way Huge Tone Leper

This is a rare one from the early 90s from Way Huge and is based on the Craig Anderton Frequency Booster. Stock it gives a mid range boost (800Hz), but that frequency can be altered by swapping the 2, 22nF caps:

220nF - 90Hz (lows)
100nF - 200Hz (low mids)
10nF - 2kHz (mids)
4.7nF - 4kHz (upper mids)


  1. Add a clean blend and you have a basic audio freq peak. ;-)

  2. Verified. You may want to indicate the +9vdc location on the drawings and/or remove the extra ground solder lug at the 100uf negative pole location, just to avoid confusion for some of the new folks.

    1. Just forgot to add the label. Updated now. Thanks for verifying, Peter!

  3. Is it not a LF353 instead the LM353?

  4. I built it with a 2pole-6position rotary and a daughter board of caps as shown here:
    IMHO, 5.6k resistor should be connected to lug1&2 and lug3 to opamp's Pin7 to make gain-up/turn-clockwise combination, though it is a matter of taste.
    Thanks for an awesome layout as usual.
