Well hello everyone!
I came here to bring you something very useful and interesting!
http://www.speedyshare.com/139823967.html
Those are the most similar to the original fonts used by some of the guitar FX brands, all in one zip file.

And a little bonus:

I don't take responsibility of what you gonna do with those fonts. Most of them are commercial, but I managed to find them on a normal free fonts site. So please, don't do anything stupid. It's only for personal use.

Hi!
Well, i think this is the only place that i can say something usefull. Im a beginner at building pedals, but in THIS, i got some experience.

If you want to use some cool fonts for your proyects, you could find it in this page: myfont.com

Mostly, you´ll need a few words for your proyects: that web is perfect for that.

The only thing that you´ll need is a program like photoshop or illustrator (here you could convert the image into vectors and experiment with the sizes or modify the typography).

1rst step: enter to the page and choose any font you like.
2nd step: write the text that you need (for example: In Out Drive Tone, etc... you get the point ;) ) and adjust the size of the word to get a good resolution of it.
3rd step: take a picture of your screen and paste it in photoshop or wherever you like.

and that´s it!

Now you only need to make a nice desing for your pedal o whatever you want to build.

Sorry if my english is bad, is not my natural lenguage.


EDIT: An image of the 2nd step.

Since that old links are not working any longer, and I've lost the ones posted by meffcio, I've start hunting again.

Here's couple I've found:

Tone Bender (ish) MK2 - Arctic2
BMP Ramshead - Medusa
Fuzz Face (ish) - Staccato222
