View Full Version : Custom painted pedals
04-06-2009, 12:10 PM
I'm getting married in July and wanted to get my groomsman some custom painted, personalized pedals as gifts. Does anybody do this or know of someone who does?
Say if I throw together a few BYOC kits and someone else could paint them up awesomely? or alternatlively I buy the pedals direct from a fx company that offers custom paintwork?
all hopefully without breaking the bank wide open.
Any leads in this area would be greatly appreciated.

Jay at Gaspedals does really cool art on pedals not sure if he'd take on custom jobs.
I know Chad at CMATMODS has someone that does custom jobs for him at times.

Some years ago I had a kit and a couple of stockers repainted just for giggles.
I asked around a bit, asked some of my artist friends if they or anyone else would want to try it for a few $ or whatever. My paint specs, lettering, and general idea, of course.
Eventually found someone (a student, IIRC) on Craigslist in my area that I liked the style of, so I prepped and primed, sent 'em out, she sent 'em, back, I topcoated and finished.
I might dig up some pics when I get home today, but I will say they turned out A++, total cost for 3 pedals with quite varied designs including shipping and my primer and topcoat was about $75.
I bet if you searched you'd find a student that was starving for portfolio padding willing to work for lunch (or less).

+1 on Lucibox. She regularly sells stock pieces that are immediately available thru her store on ebay: http://stores.ebay.com/LuciBox
I have gotten a process down as well that works if you have certain images you want on there, like a photograph, etc... Here's one I did for a BYOC MKII fuzz. PM if you'd like to swap ideas. I can tell you how I did it or figure up a quote for what you're looking for...
