Here's a collection of vero (stripboard) and tagboard guitar and bass effect layouts that we have put together covering many classic and popular effects in growing numbers. Many of these have been posted on freestompboxes.org, so check that site out for great discussions on building your own effect pedals. Enjoy the builds and please also visit us on Facebook and Twitter
"The Space Spiral is a dark and dreamy modulated delay designed to take you across the highways of fantasy. While the delay may be designed around a “dawn of digital” echo processor, the sound is out of this world, man. If you are a fan of the dreary echoes produced by old oil can delays or the ethereal sound of a well-loved tape delay, the Space Spiral is totally going to tickle your tone bone.
The Space Spiral’s delay time ranges from a tight 30ms to a fast and loose 600ms."
Schematic, pcb and info available on pedalpcb website here.
It should fit in a 125B size enclosure.
Original Info: The Warden is an optical compressor with a feature set usually
reserved for studio grade units. Built with high grade components and
internally powered by 18v, The Warden has loads of gain and sustain on
tap. With complete control over attack, release, sustain and ratio, The
Warden will allow everything from a heavy squash with fast attack and
release to “barely there” subtle compression. Optical compression has a
reputation for having more character than a VCA or FET based compression
and The Warden is no exception.
There was already an old post for this pedal that had been put on hold. It was easier to start a new one to avoid confusion I've used the schematic from pedalpcb for this layout.
I haven't done a layout for a while and as this is a nice simple one I (as I like them) I thought I'd add this to the collection. After doing it I noticed that HamishR has added a layout to the forum and that one is verified. But I thought I'd still add this to the main blog. I did it with the components on the switches though to keep the board more simple though so you can just choose the one you prefer.
The Friedman Golden Pearl is a transparent, lower gain overdrive pedal designed to push already overdriven amps into seductive saturation. This versatile pedal can also be used into a clean amp to achieve that elusive semi-broken up tone. Designed to please the ultimate tone connoisseur, the responsive controls, along with the three position high-frequency cut switch, let you custom tailor the pedal to your amp. Even greater refinement is available via the tri-mode clipping mode switch, which provides LED, diode, or no clipping voice options. Built in the USA, and designed to withstand decades of abuse, the Golden Pearl is a must have pedal for any guitar player.
"This all-analog unit is a reproduction of the tone enhancing
circuitry contained within the most widely used wireless system
throughout the 1970's to mid 1980's, the Schaffer Vega Diversity System
(SVDS). Emphatic users of the SVDS included Angus Young, David
Gilmour, Eddie Van Halen, Carlos Santana, Peter Frampton, Peter Green,
Joe Walsh, Don Felder, Elliot Randall, Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir... and an
endless list of legends who are responsible for some of the best guitar
parts ever recorded."
