My Holey Board covered in pedals.
For years when ever I would use pedals, I would just toss them in my gig bag. When I finally decided to get a pedal board, I bought an SKB. At the time SKB was noted for its durable products and I got a lot of mileage from that board. It had built in power and a soft case. It did the job and saw a lot of mileage. Eventually I outgrew the board. It was big and bulky, but did not hold that many pedals. Thus began my search for a new pedal solution. I kept looking for pedal boards and most of what o found was quite boring. Then one day, and I don’t remember how or when, I discovered Holey Boards.
Holey boards had my attention from the word go. They were beautiful wooden boards, looked like a skateboard deck and had two tiers. You know what else? No Velcro! It was my dream board! I loved the design, the look and the function, there was only one problem. The board came unfinished and I had no idea how to finish any wood products. So I emailed Chris at Holey boards and asked him what to do. He was super nice and emailed me back with instructions. It seems simple enough, so I ordered my board and then headed out to lowes to buy finishing supplies.
Well, Chris was right. It was easy to finish and it turned out great. The board has become the focal point of my home studio and the design makes it perfect for “staging” pedals on the bottom and having my chain on the top half. As soon as I had completed the board I wanted to get Chris on the show to talk about the boards and I am pleased to bring you that chat! I had an absolute blast talking with Chris! We talk about pedal boards, effects, amps and even beer! Plus, Chris (like me) owns the Catalin Bread Echorec. It was great to talk with someone else who has used one. Sit back and enjoy the show!
