Is there any other diodes that will work with this? I have a great surplus store near me and I can't find the 1N5817 diodes for this layout there. I am hoping to not have to make an online order for a few diodes. I buy all my other components at that shop.
This thing sounds great :)
You can try to reduce C8 to 220nF or even 100nF...
Hi, built the effect and it sounds great, but i've a question for you: How can i cut some bass coming out of it, in vintage and bright mode?? (in bass boost mode is unlogic cut bass because it was designed for it...) thx!!
That should be no problem. The FET is just buffering your signal, any N-Channel JFET with the same pin configurations should do.
The blue wire was wired wrong. Thanks for spotting it!
Can I use a 2N5459 instead of a 2N5457 ?
You mean the one beneath C8?
In the board i see only 11 trace cuts... ?!?!?!?!
Please, the schematic link..
I built and thus verified it already, I just have to find some time to add a project description here ;)
Thanx for the reminder!
Thank you for sharing this vero layout, could you have a chance to verify it yet?
I built this one today. It was the third pedal I've built. No problems with it and it sounds great. Has an 808 sound but more open and imo it sounds better.
I've just finished building this. Works like a charm. The lower sw has only a very slight effect on the output signal however. Thanks for the layout and keep up with the good work on this site.
I really like this site and plan on trying several builds....if I can get this one working, that is!
I tried to build the above vero layout (my first time using vero), but I'm not getting any signal once the effect is engaged. I do get a clean signal thru it when disengaged, so I believe I have the switch wired correctly. However, once engaged, the LED lights up but there is no sound. I checked the board closely to make sure there is no solder jumping over to the previous/next line. Also, instead of the internal dip switch, I used 2 SPDT switches off board.
My apologies for the messy wiring, it was only supposed to be temporary until I got it working! Hopefully, these will help...

I just stumbled across this excellent website. Thanks for all the hard work, there's great stuff here!
Hey Matt I'm experiencing the same problem you had. How did you manage to fix it?
The ground connection...
whats a gnd?
Yeah, that's something I fixed in the future version ;)
Fixed it by using unsigned integers to store the value. Thanx for reporting!
C1: 214.7483647μF ????
Yep, the 2N4401 works fine.
