These distortion pedal schematics can be used to modify, repair or build your own distortion pedal. If you have customized, fixed or diy’ed your own version of any these pedals, we would love to see and hear them so feel free to drop us a comment!
This schematic is for the MXR Distortion + Pedal. This is a simple circuit originally designed in the early 1970’s. If you have some electronics skill and the ability to read electronics schematics, you can mod, fix and build your own versions of this pedal. Try replacing the diodes for a more fuzzy sound or […]
This distortion pedal schematic is for the Ibanez TubeScreamer TS-808. If you have electronics skill and the ability to read electronics schematics, I would suggest trying to mod one of these, fixing one, or even building a custom version of one from scratch. There are many possibilities for modding/customizing an Ibanez TubeScreamer TS-808 distortion pedal. […]
The following distortion pedal schematic is for the original ProCo Rat. This circuit is very close to the BOSS DS-1 circuit. This is a very popular design for modding, customizing or building your own distortion pedal. Some of the popular mods include resistor mods for reducing gain and thickening the bass of the sound, adding […]
The following distortion pedal schematic is for the Boss DS-2 distortion pedal. Boss named this distortion pedal accordingly as it is basically a DS-1 which additional “turbo” circuitry which produces a heavier distortion. This circuit is a little more advanced than the DS-1. If you have advanced electronics skill, you could fix this distortion pedal […]
The following distortion pedal schematic is for the Boss DS-1 distortion pedal. This pedal is very basic and similar to other distortion pedals such as the ProCo Rat distortion pedal. The control knobs are for tone, level, and gain. If you have electronics skills and the ability to read schematics for electronics, I would definitely […]
