guild brian may box

This is a bit of an unusual one because I`m not even sure what it is. It`s based on a schematic done by Analogguru and is obviously a Cornish buffer in front of a booster, so what I am assuming is that the Guild Brian May is the treble booster, and the whole circuit amounts to the modifications done by Pete Cornish when putting the effect in one o

f his boards for Brian. Some or all of that may be wrong as it is just my assumption, so please correct me if anyone knows more, but the thought of a Cornish buffer into a Brian May treble booster seemed too good an opportunity to miss so I thought I`d have to do the layout! :o) The input socket should be taken directly to the board input and so only a SPDT stomp is needed for the switching because the buffer remains in circuit during bypass (the stomp is the "Sw#" connections shown in the layout). You will of course need a DPDT stomp if you want to include an LED. For those wanting true bypass instead of the Cornish buffer. shame on you! :o)
