Atlas Stands is proud to announce the launch of their new line of handcrafted, hardwood amplifier stands. These stands are easy to carry, infinitely sturdy and will drastically improve the overall tone and sound of your amp both on-stage and in the studio. Atlas Stands are crafted of only the finest ash, cherry and walnut hardwoods, and unlike the common variety of aluminum and steel amp stands on the market, these stands are a work of art that will protect and enhance your prized amplifier gear.
In addition to looking fantastic, the most exciting thing about an Atlas Stand is the effect it has on the tone of your amp. “A fine guitar amp isn't just a speaker in a box,” says Josh Childers, founder of Atlas Stands, “the whole unit is a resonating extension of your guitar. When sitting on the floor, your amp can acoustically couple with its foundation, drastically increasing the bass response. By lifting the amp off the ground and allowing it to function independently of the floor, your amp will sound like it was truly meant to.”
The first benefit of the Atlas Stand is that it places your amp at the proper angle, making it not only easier to hear on stage, but easier to mic on stage or in the studio. Proper tilt will alleviate problems caused by sound reflection off of the floor. Additionally, amp rests on anti-coupling felt bumpers that protect your amp while allowing its natural tone to shine through. A wide variety of customizations and features are also available, including a built in rack space, cooling fans, open or closed backs to vary the tone of your speaker cabinet and many more. Once the gig or session is over, your Atlas Stand folds flat and locks into place, and with its convenient carry strap (that can even double as a guitar strap) you'll be on your way in no time.
Atlas Stands, of East Tennessee, burst onto the local music scene in the spring of 2011 with their innovative, lightweight amplifier stands. These stands were designed and built in response to a great need of local studio musicians. The company's founders, Josh Childers and John Schramlin, are dedicated to building only the finest amp stands, out of sustainably grown, locally-milled hardwoods.
