Beautiful while being completely utilitarian - The Trio 21 is surprisingly versatile for it's size. Not that the 16.5x21" board is small, but the quick release mounting system allows you to pack a a lot more on this board than you would think. The light weight 3.4lb all metal board could easily hold upwards of ten pedals, a looper and a power supply. The Trio is also completely modular, with Temple Audio selling additional pedal tiers and accessory like in and out mounts, or even usb power connectors the Trio can be as simple or as complex as you want it to be. and all those holes on the surface of the board make running and managing cables and power cords unbelievable easy. And quietly the neatest feature of the Trio 21 is it's designed to fit into a standard Pelican 1600 flight case. If you aren't familiar with pelican cases, they are rugged, waterproof cases that are basically indestructible.
The Quick release pedal mounting system is ingenious for those of us who are tired of wrestling with Velcro. Composed of a thumbscrew, a mounting plate and a powerful adhesive - the quick release plates come in three sizes to fit any pedal. The four studs on the corners lock into the board, and the plate is held in place by the thumbscrew. Once attached to your board the pedals are rock solid. And The thumb screw makes moving your pedals around effortless - No more prying your pedals up and knowing the now used Velcro is getting weaker and collecting more dirt and debris every time you move a pedal.
