Anyone using one of the new Holeyboard Zig, or Big Zig, with or with our the Zag? I'm using one of the older wood wide Holeyboards and love it, but considering trying to downsize the board and that 20" Big Zig looks nice. Fastening pedals with zip ties is just wonderful -- way better/easier than Velcro, IMO.

have not tried or even heard of the new boards but I do like that they have moved to aluminium, that was a good move.
i have an older wooden board that i sort of regret buying. i didn't find the zip tie method very good... it's very awkward trying to zip tie odd sized pedals so i reverted to velcro. Then there's the issue of transporting the board which, when fully loaded with pedals, is heavy and next to impossible to get into their soft case. (actually threw my back out once loading the board in the bag) They should have made the case with dual zippers to make it easier to load and unload. The other feature I thought would be helpful (the dual levels) turned out to be not helpful. It's actually harder for me to activate switches on the top level because of the weird angle of the pedal in relation to my foot. anyway... since you like the zip tie method, i hope it works out for ya.
rossco: the variable e.q bypass is great because while bypassed it you get the raw sound of the amp without the e.q and everything else attenuating the signal which sounds great and a because its variable on the foot switch you can dial in to taste, 1/2 way I like

rossco: you don't have to fully bypass the tone stack which is great because gives you room to dial in your sound, it certainly thickens up the sound and adds nice growl/midrange growl. I don't like pedals so this replaces everything for me

easyed: It seems that the only time I clean off my workbench is when I need the space for something else. If I don't take a break, it's less than 5 minutes before that space is full again.

The Rad Washer: But my distortion pedal just doesn't sound good without a lot of headroom...
