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 / Rangemaster (Eyelet Board)

A pedal project build featuring a Fuzz Face / Rangemaster on eyelet board. This dual pedal is a combination of the classic Dallas-Arbiter Fuzz Face and the Dallas Rangemaster (treble boost).

Fuzz Face / Rangemaster (Stripboard)

A pedal project build featuring a Fuzz Face / Rangemaster on stripboard. This dual pedal is a combination of the classic Dallas-Arbiter Fuzz Face and the Dallas Rangemaster (treble boost).

LPB-1

The Electro-Harmonix LPB-1 is a classic, straight-to-the-point silicon transistor boost. It’s great for pushing a tube amp into breakup, and it is a favorite in front of Big Muffs to get even more saturation. This is a simple effect, and a great first turret board project.

Rangemaster

Originally designed as an amp-top box, the Rangemaster was intended to sit on top of the user’s amp and tended to be used in an always-on configuration. It is a classic treble boost effect which was notably used by Brian May and Tony Iommi. This pedal build makes a few small tweaks to make the circuit better-suited for a modern true-bypass pedal.

Rangemaster Terminal Strip Layout - Layout Only

A pedal layout for the original Rangemaster, an amp-top unit with the circuit built on a 1x6 terminal strip. Here you can find both the original layout used in originals as well as an updated version for modern true bypass pedals. This may progress into a full build guide in the future. Layout provided for those interested in putting it together on their own.

Rangemaster with “Range” Toggle Switch - Layout Only

A pedal layout for a Rangemaster with “Range” Toggle Switch, a twist on the classic germanium treble boost. This may progress into a full build guide in the future. Layout provided for those interested in putting it together on their own.
