This is probably one of the best site on the internet for building guitar stompboxes and effects. Kits are available, along with ready-made PCBs.
You can build Amps, Bass Effects, Boosters, Routers, Compressors, Distortion boxes, EQ Tone Control, Filters, Modulators and Echo, Noise Generators, Octave, Phase Shifters, Power Supplies, Reverbs, Tremolo Circuits, Wah Wah, and others.
Projects have cool names like Little Gem
, Ruby Amp
, May Queen Booster
Schematics are available, along with soundclips, and photos of the finished project. I think everyone, even those with little or no electronics experience can build these projects because they are simple, safe (low voltage, 9V usually) and small. Of course, it's also cheap so if it didn't work out, it's no big loss.
PDF files are available with the board artwork, parts list and wiring diagram. So what are you waiting for? Start building! Go create something!
Here are some sample pics to get you started/excited. Okay... now go visit the site
and go create something!
