Dual Looper

The Dual Loop allows you to alternate between two different effects loops. It provides two switchable loops (send / return) with a single footswitch.

By using a 4PDT footswitch, the unused input will be grounded. This will avoid noises when switching between loops.

Klon Buffer

This simple and effective buffer improves the high frequency degraded by long cables or pedal chains. It provides high input impedance and low output impedance with unity gain. You can also use it before pedals with low input impedance.

This pedal does not have any particular control, just connect the input, the output, and the power supply. Place it before a long cable or as the first pedal in the chain.

SMD Transistor PCB

Quality through-hole JFETs are becoming hard to find, replacing them with their SMD version is the best solution. This PCB is designed for placing JFET SMD transistors and easily substituting the through-hole ones in your circuit.

PCB   https://www.taydaelectronics.com/smd-toto-92-diy-pcb-guitar-effect.html

The PCB is marked with D (Drain), S (Source) and G (Gate).

 

The PCB is designed for J201, 2N5457, 2N5458, MPF102... with the pinout as shown in the following figure. If you want to use other types of transistors, please check the pinout in their datasheet.

ASSEMBLINGpcb

Add a small amount of solder on each pad of the PCB.Place the transistor over the pads with the tweezers. Melt the solder on the PCB pads and the transistor legs.

You can use pin headers (40 PIN 2.54MM RIGHT ANGLE SINGLE ROW PIN HEADER) or wires to connect the PCB to your effect circuit. The pin headers can be assembled on both sides of the PCB, depending on the available room that you have around the transistor on the effect PCB.

        

Once the transistor and the pin headers have been placed, you can place the PCB on the original through-hole footprint.

Tubescreamer

The Tubescreamer is probably the most built overdrive pedal in the DIY community. The pedal has a characteristic mid-boosted tone perfect for soft rock and blues. Also, for rock and metal, it can be used before the lead channel of amplifier to make distortion more focused and to cut the low end. The Tubescreamer has many clones and modified versions.

Description

The pedal has a drive knob, a tone knob, and a level knob. The drive knob adjusts gain, the tone knob adjusts treble and the level knob adjusts the output volume of the pedal. The pedal is used to try to mimic the sound of a vintage tube amplifier. The classic Tube Screamer sound includes a "mid-hump," which means that the circuit accentuates frequencies between the bass and treble ranges (mid-frequencies). Some guitarists prefer this sort of equalization, as it helps to keep their sound from getting lost in the overall mix of the band. (from Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ibanez_Tube_Screamer)
