Other than the typical Hammond and Bud Box enclosures. Thanks.
I dig these, http://www.pedalenclosures.com/ Very durable and unique looking. But they're expensive. Wouldn't use them for anything but one offs. There's a guy on eBay selling some Univox style slanted enclosures that look cool but I haven't bought any yet. TBH, I'm pretty content with the Hammond/Bud/Cliff boxes unless someone requests something funky.
Fulltone enclosures are my favorite. The small boxes have the excellent thumb screws. The wah and vibe w/ treadle have a great tight (and adjustable) feel. And the FD2 and big box fuzzes are a nice shape. They all look great to me too. The Ultimate Octave and Supa-Trem are the only weird enclosures, but the sound more than makes up for it IMO. Plus, they seem to be one of the few companies making their own enclosures.
Boss. Not my favorite pedals but the enclosures are time tested. they are compact, the big switch plate, durable, knobs are somewhat out of the way. Really good design.
Farndurk as they look badass.
But I won't say anymore; just giving credit where it is due
Nice pictures, enhanced color and lighting...not as nice in real life.
I really dig the look/feel of Strymon. Pretty unique.
I'm a big fan of the Elfa K-430 enclosure that was used by BJFe. I don't believe Björn's using them anymore. They have a really nice shape and weight.
Foxrox enclosures-- the knobs/toggles are up on a little plateau and so are raised and separated from the switch(es), and the jacks are all top (back) mounted; an extremely functional design.
fulltone and way huge.
+1 on Fulltone. Very sensible design, very rugged.
+1 for Strymon. Sleek and simple.
+1 for Boss enclosures cause they are designed well for sure. I like that the knobs are protected by being flush with the top of the footswitch and not above it.
For volume pedals, I like the Hilton low-profile volume. Perfect size for me.
I also like the thumb screws on the back of the TC Electronic toneprint series. Handy and makes getting the enclosure open a cinch.
Fulltone for sure!
Himmelstrutz boxes are built like a tank!
Love Skreddy too.
I like MRX size enclosures
Me too. Perfect size if you can fit a circuit into it.
Anything mini or small is good to me.
Love finger pedals such as malekko omicron and i'm considering buying a modtone minimod pedal because of their size
Any of the already mentioned are good and pedal board friendly but
for pure coolness alone, my vote goes to Mayer.
I have to agree. Not sure about the MG 90 "real life" comment. I have one and it's pretty amazing. You can polish and re-polish it to bring it to new any/every time you want. Also like the surface mounting, great boxes. But other issues for the time being.
I actually like the "Small" Analogman enclosure. My Beano and Top-jack NKT-275 Sun Face are perfect. Mike, why don't the Juicer and Beano work with top jacks? These are fine for me, although, I know a little bigger than others out there.
Dr. Scientist does some MXR-sized enclosures with top jacks, like the mini RRR that are also really nice.
And you can do really cool stuff with them. A Tonbender Mk. 1.5 I built for Wingwalker last year...
The Suhr Riot/Shiba enclosure is really nice. Small enough but solid as a brick.
