Hello, I'm very nervous about posting this but...

I've started getting into building my own pedals and here are some designs that I've done from scratch. I know there are a few issues with some (such as the Woolly Mam-muff 1). I'd really appreciate some feedback on them. Please bear in mind that I'm 14 so I don't have any sort of training and I've pretty much done this off of my own back and learn as I go along. Thank you:

The designs are

Bad Robot Fuzz (Fuzz Face Clone)
LSD Chorus
Wooly Mam-muff (Big Muff Clone)
Woolly Mammuff (Updated version of the Wooly Mam-muff)
Hippie Overdrive
Bad Robot (Updated version of the Bad Robot Fuzz Face Clone)

This is the Woolly Mammuff- The others are too large at the moment so I'll find a new way to post.

EDIT: UG won't allow me to post the original images so here are the small ones

No, they're not that bad. Is the artwork your own?

If you're developing designs for your own range of pedals it would be useful to try and develop a "house style" that instantly identifies your brand. For example, pick a font you like and stick with it. If you're having graphics, are they line art (black & white), cartoony or photographic?

Take a look at the big name pedal makers - Boss, MXR, Mooer, Danelectro, etc. - if you see any one of their pedals you instanly know what make it is.

Don't worry, these things will develop slowly over time but the great thing about having a set style is the next time you come to do a new design you're half-way there already because the design elements are already decided on; they just need tweaking for the new pedal.

That's just my five cents of course.

Keep at it and you can only get better.

I really kind of like them. I do agree with Von. You seem to kind of like the cartoon type thing. Maybe throw a brand name in a specific spot on all of them.

Thanks a lot! I just edited the graphics that I found online a little bit but other than that, everything is mine.

I definitely understand what you are saying about the brand identity but I consciously tried to make each one different sort of like EHX. Obviously, I'm not a pro and don't plan on making pedals for sale- just my own use.

Although it's left out on a few (by accident) the brand is SD Pedals in the bottom left corners.

what version of the big muff did you clone? Looks awesome btw.


I haven't yet. But I have an actual one and I love it so I just came up with an alternate design.

Hey man, I use this set of common knobs and enclosure vectors to design pedals

Not sure if you want/need them but it's nice for planning and getting a good look at how it'll all work out.

I'm actually trying to sell some of my designs if anybody is interested? They're dirt cheap.
