Gear Ant wants to make your guitar effects a whole lot more attractive, offering custom painted enclosures and knobs and more.

The New York-based company offers five different enclosure styles – some pre-drilled and some au naturel – including some adorably designs created by the owner’s daughter; and yes, according to the site, she does get to keep the profits for those.

The other four include crackle, hydrofilm, alcohol ink and freehand designs – each coming in a set of unique art. On top of that, the brand offers guitar pick boxes in crackle finishes, which could be a welcome replacement for that Altoids tin that’s sat on your ‘board for years.

On top of that, Gear Ant offers pre-painted pedals themselves – including a custom Ibanez TubeScreamers; several Boss DS-1 pedals; a Dunlop Crybaby Mini, and even some clone pedals. There’s also the Cotton Candy Fuzz: a dual-pedal combining Dan Armstrong’s Green Ringer and a Wampler Velvet Fuzz.

Take a look at some of Gear Ant’s designs below:
