Pedal Layouts & Build Guides
Below, you can find a list of our pedal build projects, with layout drawings for eyelet board, turretboard, and stripboard builds of classic effects. We carry everything you would need to build these pedals, and we have included a bill of materials for each build with an easy option to add everything to your cart. Keep in mind there are a variety of options that can be used to build these effects, and feel free to experiment with different boards, transistors, and other components.
We carry a variety of stripboard, turret board, and eyelet board in various layouts and spacings to accomodate various build types and sizes. We also carry blank FR4 boards and fiberboard, eyelets and turrets, and staking tools for installation if you would prefer to make your own layout.

Fuzz Face with Bias Trimmer
The germanium Fuzz Face is one of the most iconic guitar pedals ever made. Its simple circuit topology and low parts count would make it a great beginner’s build if not for the temperamental and inconsistent nature of germanium transistors. This build uses a bias trimmer potentiometer for tweaking the transistor bias to allow for a wider range of usable transistors. Sockets can optionally be installed for easy transistor swapping.
