The tubescreamer is a very famous pedal by ibanez, doing some soft and very nice tubey distortion, which works absolutely great on guitar. It is also a very easy pedal to build and understand (I'll make another post explaining the details once my exams are over). At ruin & wesen, we love building guitar pedals, and eagle is a very nice tool to design compact one-off stripboards. This screencast shows how to lay out the tubescreamer schematic, and then how to make a compact thruhole stripboard design. You can use eagle freeware for your DIY non-commercial designs, and it is a pretty extensive tool. You can download linux, windows and macosx versions at cadsoft.de.
