I merged your thread with this one; all custom controller discussion (including reviews of custom controller services) are to go here.Hey everyone,
Not sure if this is the right place to post this but I just wanted to inform everyone about this small company. I am in no way affiliated with this company but have just recently received a product for them and would like to share my experience.
I've been looking online for custom controllers for some time. After all who doesn't want a one of a kind controller that depicts their favorite characters and what not? Luckily I stumbled upon Super Coffee Bros on YouTube and eventually found their Facebook and Twitter. They seem to be an up and coming company. I messaged them on Facebook about an inquiry and had a response in less than an hour. They were extremely helpful and kind when it came to coming up with a design. Being a Sheik main I wanted something to do with her. They came up with some mock designs and after my approval they started right away. I first talked to them on Saturday and 4 days later on Wednesday I have the controller in my hand.
The price for a shell(that they already have in inventory) and a paint job/decal is 55 US dollars. When comparing this to other companies or private people who paint GC controllers you won't find a better deal. Each shell is from what I understand painted and then overlayed with a decal followed by automotive clear coats and then put in an oven to harden that. With that grade of protection I expect the controller to last years and years.
Communication was top notch and the controller is amazing. It feels like glass and is absolutely beautiful. When comparing it to the original matte feel of a GC controller I'd have to say this feels about the same if not better. If you want to make your friends jealous or stick out at a competition then I highly suggest contacting this company. I have attached some pictures below to showcase my controller. It features a dark blue coat followed by a Sheik decal with metallic flakes to mimic some stars in the sky.
If you have any questions about them or need more information just comment below. You can check them out on Facebook or Twitter or see the YouTube. Again I am in no way associated with them but just wanted to put this option out there for anyone looking for a custom GC controller.
Wasn't advertising, I was sharing my controllers and provided a link if you had questions. And instead of notifying me to correct the "issue" I got an auto-ban and wasn't able to reach anyone for a month. So I apologize for having 75+ controllers I could post and didn't realize the way I posted it on the "Custom Controller Thread) was going to be crucifixed by a random mod.dude. dont spam advertising posts =/
edit: this is totally out of context now that the posters posts got deleted.
feel free to delete...
It depends on the 3rd party. I've found that some of them have different shaped L and R buttons, which would cause problems. And sometimes they don't line up well overall, like they're just slightly differently shaped in their handle curvature.Well..... Guess I'm sorta reviving the thread again ok so I have a question and I posted it a few hours ago. Can anyone help me out? Can I use a 3rd party shell with a 1st party shell to make combo of the two shells?
Oh ok I see.... I just can't find a decent price on used clear came cube controllerIt depends on the 3rd party. I've found that some of them have different shaped L and R buttons, which would cause problems. And sometimes they don't line up well overall, like they're just slightly differently shaped in their handle curvature.
Also the plastic on 3rd party shells is usually of lower quality.
That said, most of the time it can be done, but it's probably not recommended to go out of your way to try to pull it off.
