I have always said I was building Pumaboards for the fun of it. Well, after 10 years and over 360 boards, my bad back, shoulders, and eyes are making them more frustrating than fun. Kinda like a "real" job. :-) At 56 I want to maximize the fun in my life as much as I can. Right now that means spending time with family and friends, playing my guitar, and restoring my 72 Chevelle... all while trying keep my back happy.
So the time to close the doors on Pumaboards has come. As of today I will no longer be taking orders. It's been a great ride, but it's time for Pumaman to switch it up a bit while he still can.
It's been a great experience these last 10 years. The feeling I got building something special with my own two hands for so many people and making so many friends along the way, was really quite humbling. I will cherish the times forever. Thank you to everyone, especially those guys that kept coming back for more Pumaboards (you know who you are).
Thanks to my AMAZING daughter Alyssa who built and maintained my cool website from day one. Truth is, she's the one that came up with the line "because pedalboards should not be boring" -- first idea she had. I loved it and we went with it. And that's how Pumaboards was started. And of course thanks to my INCREDIBLE wife Colleen for her undying support and enthusiasim the whole time.
I will be keeping keep the site up while I liquidate some of the stock I have on hand. These are boards I have built for myself over the years. I'm putting fresh tops on them as well as fresh power sockets and jacks. Then I'll get some pics up of them as well as prices.
Again, thank you everyone,
Pumaboards are extremely customizable, from the size to the Tolex colors, and of course you can get extra frills such as racing stripes and an assortment of sockets, outlets, and jacks. I also offer soft cases in many sizes.Read more »

Intro to Pumaboards
All I can say is, wow. It’s exactly the way I wanted it, and even nicer than I expected. From start to finish, you are a first-class professional operation all the way. What a pleasure to do business with a guy like you, who obviously cares about his product a great deal. I looked at just about every pedalboard out there on the market before before deciding to pull the trigger on one of yours, and man I’m glad I did. Thanks.
