    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.

    I've had one of these for several years - home and on stage. Works great and they are only $20 right now at MF! Very rugged and stable.

    I also have one of these. Don't like it as well because it doesn't tilt back much (in spite of the photo) and doesn't feel as stable.

    A few years ago when my wife complained that my amp was ruining the nice living room I put this together.

    Made from an old dresser that I saw someone carrying to the curb for trash.

    I opened up the back , re glued all the joints an added a plywood shelf . A scotch brite pad with tounge oil brought the finish back and I carpeted the inside for some vibration dampening. She thought it looked good so I was allowed back in the living room.

    I've since moved my studio to the basement but like the stand.

    For 37 dollars I might use this as a stand that i can plug in a Mic , Smartphone or stereo pedal too 14" X 14 " x8" just screw off the handle and plop

    ...you can plop a scrap wood from a local home depot or lumber yard on top for bigger surface area if needed..



    and unscrew the the Behringer logo and put on a mini Badcat logo they sell on their site if you want fancy;-)

    Well... styling wouldn't hurt. I've got some ideas and when I have time to build (thinking maybe this weekend) I'm going to get cracking.

I recall reading reviews when I was shopping that it worked great as an amp stand. Sorry I don't have a pic, but believe me it works. If you are serious about a cheap and clean solution like this I will snap a pic and upload it tonight when I am at home.

    I like this. I have lots of those. You will have to watch where the centre of gravity is on a combo so it doesn't topple forwards easily. bungee cords will fix that. It worth a few bucks to try it IMO.

    I have one of those On-Stage RS7000s, one of those Musicians Gear Deluxe Amp stands, and I also have the North Coast chrome stand for AC15.



    Here are the pros and cons of each:



    Musicians Gear:

    * Arms are closer together, which means that 1x12" amps are generally a great fit. I've never had it not work for an amp, and all my amps are 1x12 or smaller.

    * Does work decently for the Vox AC15.

    * The stock angle is very poor for top-heavy amps. Can be improved by removing the arms and inserting them backwards so that the long arms are on the bottom and short ones in the back.

    * While quite stable in that configuration, looks quite funky with the arms always sticking out the front.

    * Arms do not fold, not very portable as a result.



    On-Stage

    * Wider arm spacing, much superior for larger and wider amps.

    * However, bad for AC15C1 and other AC15s because the arms sit right where the power cord would be. Also bad for some narrow combos where the feet are too close together.

    * The arm angle is pretty great out of the box.

    * Arms fold down for added portability.



    North Coast

    * Perfect

    * Light and looks great

    * Makes the amp easy to move around in carpet since the stand acts like metal rollers on carpet (in a good way).

    * Only con is price, but if any other cheaper option was actually better, I'd recommend it.

    I have both of these. My Kustom V100 Defender sits on the $20 one and it is great because it sits waist high so you don't even need to bend over to mess with controls.
