“I’ve been using a Holeyboard™ on stage with The Trouble With Monkeys for months,
and its “cable-tie” system for securing pedals is genius. I can switch out pedals
in two minutes and easily reconfigure the board.
— - Michael Molenda Editor-in-Chief, GUITAR PLAYER

I never stop making pedalboards easier to use

I’m one guy, I put my heart and soul and all of my knowledge into designing and building better pedalboards that are easier for you to use, then I pack them up myself and ship them to you.

full of holes, for cable-ties! free yourself from hook&Loop and adhesives

Holeyboard Pedalboards use cable-ties to secure and protect your pedals, they are Strong, Tight, and Fast. They are a better solution to velcro and nasty adhesives that damage your pedals and don’t hold up. They make changing pedals easy so you can focus on being more creative.

reach the pedals in the back row, fast and easy.

We invented the Holeyboard Pedalboard Top Shelf, elevating and angling the pedals in the back row where they are easy to access. So no more accidentally hitting that tuning pedal right as you go into your solo.


The patented curved deck and hole pattern design matches the path of your foot for easier, more intuitive pedal switching.

Bulletproof build, ergonomics, and practicality are the names of the game with these multi-tiered pedalboards, including the aircraft grade aluminum model tested. A broad curve and gentle tilt follow the arc of leg motions, but the real kicker – pun intended – is the use of zip ties to fasten pedals of any size. No more sloppy Velcro! Also available in laminated Baltic birch.

One shop one person, artisan to artist. 

My costs have not been reduced, labor is not outsourced to Asia and I am certainly not scaling up for mass production. They will not soon be in a store near you. Welcome to a company that focuses on what matters, making quality pedalboards in the USA that are easy for you to use, to play, and to live with. Period. I build them, ship them to you and you play them.

we never stop creating what's next

Chemistry Design Werks has been innovating and pushing the boundaries of design and engineering since the release of our first Holeyboard in 2011. We never stop and are committed to making the easiest to use, highest precision pedalboards, built right here in the USA with a lifetime warranty.

What I believe, in a nutshell

 I believe in underdogs and small miracles. I’m an inventor at heart; a little bit of a mad scientists I suppose. I like to find something valuable to work on and focus on it until I can bring it to life. Everything I do puts quality, function and American design, engineering and manufacturing excellence first. Solve problems, make the world a better place. Seems pretty simple but it takes a lot of work. I hope you like my Holeyboard Pedalboards, I make them for you to enjoy.
