  • Amp stand?

    Anyone have an amp stand that they like and that looks nice? I'm looking to get one for my Vox AC15 to reduce complaints from my downstairs neighbor (figure getting the amp off the ground will decrease the amount of sound coming through the floors). Any suggestions?



    I saw the Atlas stands (http://www.atlas-stands.com/) and may drop them a line to find out pricing but I'm guessing they're more than I want to spend...



    I may also just build my own so if anyone has suggestions on designs, that's appreciated too.



    Thanks.

    If you want something on the cheap side check out what MF has in stock. I was looking at getting some Musician's Gear stands for my BRG Vox AC15 and AC4. I imagine those atlas ones can be a bit pricey. But if that is the style you are looking for, build some yourself!

        One thing you can consider is to get yourself some chrome wire shelving parts so you can put together a stand with dimensions that fit your own needs. That way you can decide how high off the floor you want it and also create some storage space above and/or below it.

        Just don't buy this piece of ****************e http://www.musiciansfriend.com/acces...back-amp-stand it opens up to greater than a 90 degree angle so you have to add cushions to get a good secure fit.

        Well Dick, it's got a good beat, and I could dance to it, so I give it a 10!

            P.S. Have you bought a Yamaha THR10 yet?

                I would start with a chair placed on a rug to see if it helps any then spend some coin on a nice tilted dealy.

                Those Atlas stands look gorgeous.

                    I'm pretty happy with my AmpEndage stand. At $69.95 or $99.95 they aren't the cheapest option out there but they look a lot nicer than those cheap little metal stands you get for $25-30.

                        DEFINITELY more than you want to spend(like, $195, incl. shipping), but one of these would be fun...

                            That's a nice option. Thanks!



                            That Vox stand is absurdly priced! $195 for that metal stand? I wish I had access to a metal shop - I could make that thing in an hour.



                            Anything else? I think the ampendage stand is nice but I also may work on a design of my own.
