FV-1 Pedal

BuGG from Pedalpcb.com has created an EZ FV-1 module for vero layouts.
It is available here: http://www.pedalpcb.com/product/ezfv1.
This is what he wrote about this circuit in our Forum / Requests section (schematic available there):

"This is a fairly straightforward single-algorithm FV-1 circuit, it would be a nice starting point for learning how to work with the FV-1.
For easy stripboard building the PedalPCB EZ FV-1 module is available, a through-hole FV-1 module for stripboard/breadboard layouts.  (ready to use, no SMD soldering required)
The pin spacing is standard 0.1" x 0.6" so it can be handled like a standard PDIP-28 (WIDE) IC.  

The 24LC23A must be loaded with an algorithm in bank 0, although multiple switchable programs are possible by pulling pins 16, 17, and 18 high (corresponding to the binary encoded bank number).
The internal algorithms can also be used by grounding pin 13.
There will be pre-programmed EEPROMs available soon for those who just want to build the thing and not fool around with programming as well."


... and a more "experimental" version:

Vertex Steel String

Original info:
"The Steel String Clean Drive faithfully recreates the tonality and feel of the iconic Dumble Steel String Singer amplifier in a stompbox format. Designed alongside a real Steel String Singer (#001), this 100% analog tone tool will do it all from Overdrive, to Fat Boost, to Compression, to EQ shaping and more. Get the unmistakable Crystal-Clear Overdrive and Fat Clean Tones from albums like "Texas Flood", "Venus Isle", and "Continuum" through any clean amp platform"
You can find Bugg's PCB and schematic here.

Deluge Bass Distortion

Spotted this over at General Guitar Gadgets and thought it sounded nice. It's a modified
big muff that supposed to be tuned for bass, and from the clip it sounds pretty nice, but then again how can you go wrong with anything with big muff origins.

Baja ENG Overdrive

Bajaman's overdrive circuit based on the Engl 530 preamp with switchable tone stack.
Original thread and schematic available on the FSB forum here.
The layout should fit in a 1590B box.


Baja MDR Overdrive

Bajaman's overdrive/distortion circuit based on the Mesa Dual Rectifier high gain channel with switchable tone stack.
Original thread and schematic available on the FSB forum here.
The layout should fit in a 1590B box.
