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
"Starting with the same germanium transistors as the
much-loved original Sputnik, but with slightly different specs, we added a few
slight tweaks to get very close to the sonic details of the original circuit.
Many of the other parts in the Sputnik II are different but of same or similar
value, including many vintage and rare parts.
While extremely similar to the original,
the Sputnik II is a beast all its own. The Sputnik II takes everything we loved
about the original, and adds in the things we dreamed of after its original
• Full-size control knobs for every
parameter • Foot-switchable DRIFT mode, with its own status indicator •
Additional FILTER options for maximum tone-shaping • Additional circuitry
making it more friendly to active pickups, buffers, synths, pedals, etc
Within Sputnik II lies a plethora of fuzz
tones. Smooth, gritty, vintage, modern, thick, thin, buzzy, bassy, splatty,
sputtery, noisy, buttery, controlled or very much out-of-control. A truly
endless cornucopia of fuzz."
Here is another pedal reverse-engineered by Dino (Digi2t).
He also added an extra diode reverse switch.
For all infos on how to build this pedal you can find Dino's original thread (with his own vero) and schematic on the DIY forum here.
