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 Special Cranker

Here's EQD's newest offering, the Special Cranker. Developed from the Speaker Cranker, this one is like two basic Electra's with switchable hard clipping diodes in between (1N60Ps like the original Speaker Cranker or Soviet germanium D9Ks). Easy fit for a 1590B.

Here's the schematic for reference.

Normally I throw a demo in, but just go look those up on YouTube, there's a bunch of them. I leave you with this vid instead. It's waay cooler anyway.

Darkglass Duality Fuzz

 Happy Fuzz Friday! Here's a big one that hopefully makes up for my absence lately. Sounds great on bass and guitar. From Darkglass:

The Duality is a unique fuzz pedal that contains two discrete fuzz circuits—a gated saw-tooth wave and a raunchy high-gain sound—which can be mixed together to yield a vast selection of distinct sonic textures.
