About This Listing

Holeyboard M3 Standard pedalboard. Made from Baltic birch plywood and finished by myself with Varithane Kona stain and 13 coats of Minwax poly for durability. Some light scuffing from use underneath where pedals sit. Includes water resistant bomber case (normally sold separately for $99) as well as all original hardware & packaging.

From the original listing:

NEW! M3 Patented Updated Holeyboards

Holeyboard M3 Updated Features:

  A little bit better in every way. We listened to feedback and gigged with the original designs and made them better. New and refined features: 
•   Lighter, Faster, Stronger! Over a pound and a half lighter than the MkI.
• Lifetime warranty 
• Generation II 6061 Aluminum HokeyRisers
• Patents issued on the Standard and WIDE

Fits more pedals (1-2 more per Holeyboard) We took advantage of area that wasn’t being used to and made a little more room without making it bigger and maintaining the ergonomic curved deck; magic.Larger diameter holes. Lava Cable/George L’s friendly for easier cable routing.Power Channel. New channel cut under the Top Shelf where the power cables come out for easily routing them under the board to keep things clean.More robust integrated handles. Easier to grip.

I Make These Boards in St Paul, MN. This is a quality "Throne" for you boutique pedals. Are you putting that Klon Centaur on with gooey velcro? Seriously, it's designed to last and to protect your pedals; for the working musician. Add your own graphics if you wish and then add your pedals. 

» Made in the USA.  Designed in St Paul and made in Minneapolis. Buy American.

» No Velcro Required or nasty adhesives! Velcro is nasty, gummy, sticky, it peels off, pedals move and fall off.  I designed this to use Zip Ties, one of the best inventions of the 20th century. The patent pending hole pattern allows you to mount anything easily with Zip Ties. They are easy to use, they don’t damage your pedals with nasty sticky stuff, they stay on, people can’t steal them at gigs, and they don’t fall off. If you want to move the pedal or change it out, just grab a Zip Tie. Simple. Velcro does work if you so desire.

» A Light Eco Footprint: Sustainable thinking is at the heart of this product, pure in form, pure in function and pure in materials and construction with minimal waste. The raw material is purchased locally and the machining of the parts is done locally by small business partners. The material is Baltic Birch Plywood, an extremely durable and attractive, renewable resource. We ship boards leaving the natural Baltic Birch surface finish, ready for your own artwork or ready to age gracefully with use. We have chosen to avoid the use of chemical preservatives and coatings (except on limited edition boards with graphics or hand-painting). You are welcome to add your own tongue-oil finish or clear-coat of your choice if you so desire but it is not necessary. 

» Elevated and angled Top Deck: eliminate the toe dance trying to hit the pedals in the back row, they are raised above the level of the first pedals and are angled for easy switching. Below the top deck is the perfect place for a power supply such as the Voodoo Pedal Power series.

» Patent Pending Ergonomic Curve: The board mimics the arc of your foot when swinging from side to side for more intuitive, accurate pedal switching.

» It is built like a tank. ¾” Baltic Birch ply, CNC cut and hand painted and finished. The expression “party like a rock star” wasn’t created by accident, musicians are busy, they are creative, they need stuff that works and that lasts.

» Warmth of real wood: Be creative, paint it, draw on it, put stickers on it.  It’s real wood and it gets badges of honor with use. Just like a good guitar it gets better with age. Why put your pedals on carpeting? The pedalboard ships with the natural baltic birch surface, if you would like to add a finish coat or graphics you may but it's not needed.

» Use any zip tie style fasteners. 14” length seems to work well. Note that

 if you have some large pedals you can just attach two zip ties together.

 Place the effects where you want, loop the zip ties around and through the most convenient holes and tighten. To remove just clip off with a clipper, scissors, or knife.

»  Power supplies mount perfectly under the Small Holy board. Check

    out our website for different ideas on how to set up your board.

»  Rubber Feet: Screwed in rubber 1” diameter feet to keep your board from sliding and out of the spilled beer and whatever else is on the stage when it’s your turn to play.

»  Two Carry Handles: As they say, the devil is in the details. Picking up a pedal board is not comfortable, quick or easy. Two integrated handles, on top and on the side, allow for you to easily carry your board for load-in and load-out.

» Easily Assembled: Note, the boards ship flat and if you wish you can use the Small Holey Board (top riser section) separate from the Large Holey Board (bottom section).


Lighten your load and make loading in and out easier. You've changed from a half or full-stack and 100 watt head to an 18 watt combo you can crank and carry easily. You switched to a soft gig bag for your guitar, it's time to complete the transition and get rid of the hard case for your pedals. Ironically your effects pedals are probably way more durable than either your guitar or amp, yet people feel they need a hard case, why? This messenger style bag/case was designed by me so that you can throw your board in, some cables, and tuck in song sheets or whatever in the front pocket. Then put the bag on your shoulder, guitar in one hand, amp in the other and you are in to the gig in one trip. No giant cases needed. They do call them stomp boxes fyi, they are durable. This case is super thick inside, ballistic nylon on the outside, same stuff they use for bullet-proof vests fyi, and thick waterproof vinyl on the inside. Your board is well protected. Embrace change.

It's bulletproof and is made for me by Atomic Tarp here in MN, they make trampolines for Hobie Cats among other things, it will last as long as the board and it has a huge shoulder strap so load-in at your gig is easy. 

» Made in the USA.  Designed in St Paul and made in Hutchinson. Buy American . This is not the free "soft bag" junk made in China by other companies that lasts five minutes and seems to have nothing to do with the actual needs of guitar players. This is quality, it holds a lot of stuff and you can use it for travel for clothes, etc, anything, keep it safe and easy to carry. It's bottomless and will last a lifetime.

What people are saying about the boards:

“Nice product, very functional, glad I ordered one….an almost perfect design.” – Ben

"I have had my board for about a month now and it truly is the best thing since sliced bread! I've sworn off velcro forever! I have had five different pedalboards over the years, and it was always a series of trade-offs, I'm so thankful that someone finally nailed it. Thanks again."   -Mike

"Just wanted to let you know I've had my eye on your product for a while now and finally pulled the trigger. I am extremely pleased, and feel you are producing an attractive and practical product. Feel free to use me as a testimonial!" -Luke

"Hey there Chris, This is Zach. I just wanted to let you know that I love your design! I am going to take some photos and write a review after I get a proper pedal power supply. Thanks for the great product,"  -Zach

"Chris, I'm back from deployment and the board is amazing! I have about 8 other pedals I can swap on the fly. Thanks again for all your help." -Matt
