    i can appreciate the artwork on some pedals but im not buying something for the artwork. if i can get the same pedal with a few graphic options, i might care but those arent all that common

      As long as I can tell what it is in the dark, and see if the pedal is on in bright sunlight, then I don't care.

        With Lovepedals, differently colored editions of a model usually have a slightly tweaked circuit.
        I have three Zendrives and they're somewhat different from each other, both in tone and feel.

        PS:I too have a couple of the Neunabers in black, and like the look of the white.
        But I'm not gonna replace 'em just for cosmetics.

          I am not too hung up on colors or looks, but I do appreciate a striking color or graphic design. The only pedal I might buy for the graphics is a Julia, probably the least-walrusy one.

            Monochromatic pedalboards are a thing. I’ve seen folks rocking all black, red or all blue etc pedalboards.

                I want color variety, but no yellows, purples, baby-blues, seafoam-greens or pinks (unless someone would kindly sell me a dod Thrash Master cheap!).
                Plenty of other colors and plenty of brands/models to choose from,,,,,,so why settle, unless one truly doesn't care at all which is just fine too.

                  I like a variety of colors but it ultimately doesn't really matter to me. By chance, I always seem to end up with a whole rainbow on my boards.

                  One thing I really appreciate is when the LED is the same color as the pedal. Makes it easy to see exactly what is on or off when the stage monitor system either sucks or there isn't one.

                  After a while of assembling boards and noticing the trend, I put together a Nano + with all homemade pedals. I made red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple pedals all with matching LEDs. I know it's nerdy but it works for me.

                    I was really close to an all red pedalboard. I had 4 pedals I was using that were red, so I chose the last three from special editions in red also. They were all great but I ended up swapping a few out for others.
                    Oh no.....


                    Oh Yeah!

                      We had a guy in Boston that was a killer player for one of the bigger Boston bands in the 80s. He spray-painted all of his pedals black and changed the knobs because he didn't want anyone coping his sound. He did have a killer tone.

                        Man, I just don't have that kind of time for that kind of paranoia.

                          I could never do that. I would ever be changing the wrong pedal. I need multi-color to quickly tell what's what in between songs when the lights are down.

                            I'm not crazy about some of the "goofy" color schemes, like some Z-Vex pedals, but it would never stop me from buying something I wanted, or entice me to buy something I didn't want.

                            Having said that, I do like my limited edition chrome Xotic SL Drive.

                              That is a beautiful pedal.
                              The music business is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs. There's also a negative side.

                                And it sounds good.
