Jon Pattons Cruz’ Driver

About the circuit Jon Patton is a great engineer in building guitar effects. He developed a good number of circuits that are well known in the DIY community. What Jon sais about this circuit: This was a fun challenge, and it came together pretty quickly once we identified what would work well with his amp […]

OD 67 Overdrive – DIY

[wpdm_file id=76] This is based on a DOD 250™/ MXR Dist+  overdrive which is a straight-to-the point distortion unit. In addition to that Brian Wampler has written a nice article in premierguitars which discussed a lot of modifications to optimize the circuit http://www.premierguitar.com/articles/mxr-distortion-plus-mods-1 Those mods are switchable on the OD67 board. The most usefull one […]

ROG Ginger V1.0 – DIY

[wpdm_file id=53] This is my PCB for runoffgroove’s Ginger bass amp emulation. Here is the link to ROGs project and their soundfiles. The Ginger is modelled after an Ampgeg SB-12 Portaflex bass amp. Board mounted pots can be used to make the build easier. PCBs based on runoffgroove circuits purchased from TH custom effects are intended for DIY […]

ROG Azabache – DIY

[wpdm_file id=56] This is my PCB for runoffgroove’s Azabache overdrive. Here is the link to ROGs project and their soundfiles. The Azabache is a Fender-like overdrive covering a lot of their models because of the special tonestack and switching used. Board mounted pots can be used to make the build easier. For reference: (out of […]

OD 66 – DIY

[wpdm_file id=19] The OD 66 Overdrive is based on the old DOD 250(TM) Overdrive. This version features an additional switch for the selection of different clipping diodes. This build is easy for beginners and fits a 1590B enclosure easily.   [wpdm_file id=20] The V1.1 version features the 9mm helper pot, better aligned Pads and an […]

(Mini) Muffin V1.x – DIY

[wpdm_file id=21] Muffin and Mini-Muffin are fine projects to build all the known variations of the Big Muff(TM). While the Muffin is ideal for a 1590B enclosure…         …the Mini-Muffin fits a 1590A enclosure. Please note that despite its size all resistors are 1/4 W size! You are able to build a […]

Rodent V1.1 / Rodent mini V1.0 – DIY

[wpdm_file id=36] The Ro-dent board is my version of the ProCo RAT(TM). It features the available mods as well as an additional clipping stage in the OpAmp.       The Miniature version fits in a 1590A enclosure.

ROG Supreaux-Deux V1.1/1.3 – DIY

[wpdm_file id=74] This is my PCB for runoffgroove’s Supreaux-Deux overdrive. Here is the link to ROGs project and their soundfiles. The Supreaux Deux is moddeled after a single ended SUPRO 16T. Board mounted pots can be used to make the build easier. V1.3 has a smaller layout and testpoints added to make biasing the JFETs […]
