Here's a collection of vero (stripboard) and tagboard guitar and bass effect layouts that we have put together covering many classic and popular effects in growing numbers. Many of these have been posted on freestompboxes.org, so check that site out for great discussions on building your own effect pedals.

Emanating Fist Electronics Black Dust - Tone Distorter
From the captain:
Dig it. Black Dust. The
Black Acid pre-set to fold air. Fuzz and drive, wide open. Maximum
attack, minimized footprint. Fuelled with the same PCB as the Black
Acid, British made Magnatec BC109's, Arcol carbon comps, BC/Vishay
capacitors, prime cuts all the way.
For those not familiar with
this circuit type it has a very similar tonal qualities to the old
Meathead Dark though I'd say a more refined approach with a more
traditional overall tone than that of any Meathead. The mids are quite
flat the lows considerably boosted and the highs pretty natural and open
sounding. Heaviness, it is some.
There were 2 versions, a big box version (older) and smaller (newer).
