Schematic and layouts, the capacitor values should be correct now.

I cerated a Vero-layout, but it is not applied yet and not verfied until now.
The lot of wire jumper results from the trial to keep the layout small.

A re-examination gave some other resistor values as follows:
R4 old 22k -> new 10k
R5 old 4k7 -> new 3k9
R18 old 22k -> new 10k
R19 old 22k -> new 10k
R20 = 22R added.

hey! :D
..may i ask where did you take these new values from?
have you got the real pedal on your bench?

i can see that the old values of the resistors are coherent with the pics in the previous page, so ...are there 2 versions of this circuit?
would be interesting to determine which is the most recent

thanks again for your work!

No, I have not got the pedal on the bench, I got the information form another source.
I do not know which is the most recent, I guess the second one.
But anyway-the second one is verified.

Manfred, please notice that C2 value is reported right on the PCB (47uf) but not on the schematic, where is still wrongly noted as 100uf.

Hi Blues 1911,

thanks for the hint.
Here the corrected Schematic:
