Amp Layouts Created With DIYLC

By Rob Robinette

Have comments or corrections? Email rob at: robinette at comcast dot net


The following annotated high resolution layouts were created using the freeware program Do It Yourself Layout Creator (DIYLC). All the layouts have every component function labeled and are much more detailed than the original Fender, Marshall and Soldano black-and-white layout diagrams. Click on the layouts to see the hi-res version and below each layout you'll find links to download the pdf and DIYLC files.

If you want to upload a file to the HoffmanAmps.com DIYLC file analyzer to have a circuit board made then use these files:
