    It's very shallow I know, but what are peoples favourite pedals by looks alone - not sounds, tone or build quality - how pretty it looks. For starters, I volunteer the Moollon Range

    Yea, the moollons are stunning. Wish I needed another pedal so I could nab one of these beauties.

    I'm also a fan of Dr.Scientist's finishes. Sooo many choices AND you can order one to your exact specs (looks wise).

    Yes, those Moolons have to among the coolest pedal designs ever.
    I know the design and finish of a pedal should not matter, but it does to me. I, for one, just feel alot better about spending up to $400 on a pedal if I dig the pedals artwork and it's ability to hold up under normal gig use. I've had pedals that cost me over $300 that honestly did not look so great to start with and then got chipped and beat up looking fairly quickly. Maybe I'm being petty and smallminded but I just prefer to look down on cool looking pedals that I know will last for years and years of gigs and rehearsals.

    Moollon, Moog, and Toneczar came to mind before I clicked on the thread.

    I really dig the Myrold version of Devi Ever's Truly Beautiful Disaster pedal. Really cool how he integrated a photo cell into the motorcycle headlight:

    and here's a homemade job of a BYOC MKII that I think turned out pretty cool:

    Kinda partial to my first effort at refinishing.
    It's a CMATMODS Signa Drive.

    I just can't help myself, but I'm too proud of our custom artwork:

    The guy who did this spent over six hours just on the paint job!!!

    Anything with a shiny chrome finish, or with interesting artwork or images. Swirly paint doesn't do much for me.

    BJFE usually takes the cake for me. Oh, the Skreddy jobs are usually awesome too.
