Pedal Layouts & Build Guides
Below, you can find a list of our pedal build projects, with layout drawings for eyelet board, turretboard, and stripboard builds of classic effects. We carry everything you would need to build these pedals, and we have included a bill of materials for each build with an easy option to add everything to your cart. Keep in mind there are a variety of options that can be used to build these effects, and feel free to experiment with different boards, transistors, and other components.
We carry a variety of stripboard, turret board, and eyelet board in various layouts and spacings to accomodate various build types and sizes. We also carry blank FR4 boards and fiberboard, eyelets and turrets, and staking tools for installation if you would prefer to make your own layout.

Burns Buzzaround (Eyelet Board)
A pedal project build featuring a Burns Buzzaround on eyelet board. The Buzzaround was made in very limited quantities in the 1960s, and was famously used by Robert Fripp of King Crimson.
Perhaps the most well-known of the Tonebender line, the Mk2 was most notably used on the early Led Zeppelin albums. Following the unofficially-named Tonebender Mk1.5, which used a 2-transistor Fuzz Face topology, the Mk2 added an additional transistor gain stage in front which provides more saturation and sustain.
The Tonebender Mk3 is a 3-transistor fuzz circuit like the Mk2, but their circuit topologies are quite different. The Mk3 is perhaps most similar to the Burns Buzzaround, used by Robert Fripp in King Crimson. In addition to the Volume and Fuzz controls found on many early fuzz effects, the Mk3 has a simple-but-effective tone control for additional tone sculpting.
