  • Any reason why a TV stand couldn't be used as an amp stand?

    i'm looking for cheap alternatives for my amp and some pedal sotrage to take up less space.

    i'm currently using a chair for the amp, and a shoe rack for 'excess' pedals, so i'm thinking something like the below tv stand would raise my amp fairy high and give me loads of pedal storage in the corner of my room?



    or no?

      I did this for a little bit. I noticed some increased combo rattle, but that won't necessarily happen to you. I would build one. It's a really simple build and would be a billion times more stable than some particle board piece of ****************, and possibly cheaper.

          i have mine on a really low ikea bookshelf and it works well
          the thing ways a ton though so i would consider getting something heavy. i think this is actually solid wood.

          I went to see Richard The Third starring Kevin Spacey at the BAM theater last night and you were there, I waved and said I loved you in Phantoms. You did not wave back or acknowledge me, I thought we were homeboys but I guess not. Also you're much shorter in person.

          Love

                  Or better, Ikea carries some billy extensions. They have ideal height for 1x12" combos and let you have all controlls in range. You can also store some guitar related things in it to tidy things up:

                      not sure how putting an amp on surface that takes up approx the same amount of floor space
                      would save space. in fact it takes even more more vertical space. you couldve otherwise enjoyed a poster or maybe a dirty calendar or something.

                              Because using something like a TV stand he would have the amp on top and shelves underneath for pedals etc...
                              This would take up less floor space than what he has currently (amp on a chair with a separate rack for storage/pedals etc.).
