Combo Amp Stands

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have any recommendations.

I've got a GK MB212 (2x12).

I did buy a cheapish one last year, but it was so flimsy and unstable I sent it back.

Looking to raise it up 12-18 inches with a slight tilt.

I use one by Stagg and velcro the cab/head lead to it just in case. The problem is the front to back depth of the cab but this solution works well.

Always liked the look of the one from Roland S01 as well.

I use folding steps  ( 2 steps in my case ) and the 15" size. They'll  take 130kg per step.  Should easily cope with any cab situation. I've attached some sturdy packing foam on mine.  Stops them sliding and gives the cabs grip, and helps isolates the vibes.  They fold flat for transporting which is the cherry on the cake

I always thought this was what extension cabs were for...

That was plan b. If anyone is selling a 212mbp powered extension cab I’m all ears!

I had a quicklock one that lifts and tilts back. I really, really baby my gear and it wasn't worn out or abused at all but after about a year it went between soundcheck and the start of the first set. Entire combo landed on the back panel, or more appropriately the cables and jacks sticking out of the back panel. I consider myself very lucky that that only damage was the XLR out to the PA was bent inwards, it still works just fine but it could have been so much worse.

 

I'm back to using a Markbass wedge. It isn't as good but it won't collapse.

I bought a Quick Lok BS/317 combo stand. The spec states that it'll take up to 45kg, which I thought was ideal as my combo was 28kg...plenty of headroom. No. I went through 2 in a matter of weeks. They are dreadful, don't buy one. The adjustment/locking mechanism just won't take any weight at all.

I can just look and that and see the lock mechanism would NOT take my 43kg TE...

That is exactly the model from my 'dropped the combo onto the protruding cables' story.

I actually bought the large fender one after it was recommended by a friend. It is pretty sturdy and well made, but......... I took it to practice last night and preferred the sound with the amp on the floor. It lost quite a lot of low end on the stand and the tone was quite different.

Not sure whether to send it back, though it might come into its own on a boomy stage.
