Welcome. I wanted to provide stripboard layouts I've made to help people new to electronics and even the more experienced get into different aspects of electronics.

I verify the layouts before I post them.

Nintendetar Guitar Fuzz Stripboard Veroboard Layout

This is something I made a long long time ago and subsequently made actual PCBs for which I still have but due to the fact my agoraphobia has reached such levels I can't post them anymore so I don't bother selling them. however it's a cool effect so I made a stripboard for it. I also Made an Add-on board a while back located HERE

or with the Oscillator Add On..

Greg Fryer Brian May Treble Booster Deluxe Schematic Stripboard Veroboard Layout

this is one of the best treble boosters I've built and I've built alot of them being a Brian May fan.
this was traced from the circuit board and I have made 2 changes (that don't affect the sound)

1. in the original there are 2 power supply capacitors (47uf and 33uf) in parallel which was obviously used to keep production costs down - Greg will have initially put in the standard 100 uf capacitor but if his other pedals/products used 33uf and 47uf caps - it would have been cheaper to just parallel a couple of those up to get near enough.

2. the other change is that there are 2 10pf capacitors in series again this will be a production cost thing - it would be cheaper to use 2 10pf capacitors in series than adding 1 4.7pf cap to the build (if he used a lot of 10pf capacitors in other builds which he most probably will do.)

so with those changes noted: it sounds no different to the original unit but you can always swap them if you don't believe me.
