Build a Muff

This is a PCB for the Big Muff. I design this in Eagle. I used the Part numbering from The Big Muff Page here. With this board you should be able to build any version of the standard Big Muff. Just choose a schematic and match the part numbers to this board.

You can order boards from PCBWay.com.

The board adds a power filter section and on board LED. This makes for an easy great looking and reliable build.

These are:

  • R24 – 1K to 10K LED Resistor
  • D6 – LED any
  • D5 – 1N5817 Reverse polarity protection
  • R25 – 100r
  • C14 – 47µ to 100µ Power Filter

Here is a gallery of the completed build. Note! Astute observers will notice that I mixed up the Tone and Volume controls on the enclosure of this first build! Follow the guide above, it is correct Volume is center bottom and Tone is upper left.
