Looking to build small boost pedal!

I'm looking for a boost pedal, that is super compact, as I'm running out of room on my board

I just want something that will add a little bite to my lead tones, on my lead channel (JCA50H).

I figured I'd save myself a little cash, and have a little fun, by building one myself!

Can anyone point me in the direction of a schematic for a boost that will fit into a small enclouser, like the super small by BYOC?

I was looking at the BYOC confidence booster, but I'm not sure if it will fit, or if there may be a better alternative out there?

I have one that I built with a JRC4558, only uses half so I think there's a single op amp version that'd be smaller. Unfortunately I don't have a schematic.

You could try the LPB-1 or the colorsound boost. They're very similar and use the same number of parts.
