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
traditional overdrive stomp boxes, the VH4 Pedal is a true preamp which
delivers an authentic representation of its namesake – real Diezel tone
– not emulated, not modeled, but sincerely reproduced. The entire
signal architecture is faithful to the original: Bass, Mid, Treble and
variable Deep and Presence controls allow you to tailor the uniquely
Diezel Overdrive character. The command found in the Gain control gives a
player everything they will ever need with lower gain settings
producing the classic Diezel sparkle and chime to saturated mid-gain
sounds, to scorching Diezel leads by cranking it all the way up.
As close to the original VH4 preamp, the VH4 pedal can be used as
either an overdrive or as a standalone preamp to feed into your amps
power section. What players take away by going direct into the power amp
is all the dynamic, unfiltered Diezel tone by simply plugging into your
amplifiers clean channel. Two outputs are provided with the first
intended to connect to the front of a guitar amplifier and the second
allows for a connection to a line-level power amp or power section of
your amp via the Effects Return."
