Hello you all, I read many threads regarding the pro and cons about ampstands, tilting its amp,... but I didn't find an answer to my question. I have a tc electronic bg250, the 115 combo. I like its sound and its power. But I often play at bar type gigs where there's no PA for the bass + small stage. So, logically, as my amp is put on the floor, I don't hear me very well or I have to increase the volume which is not good. I tried to raise my amp on a 50 cm stand, and I hear it better. As I understood it, at this height, there is still the floor coupling effect, so theorically, no loss of low end, even if percieved as well due to the better hearing og the highs and the mids. I could also put it on a smaller stand, 25 cm for example and tilt it a bit. Or only tilt it... many possibilities. But, will these things have on impact on the sound heard by the crowd ? For no PA gigs mostly. Is it better to raise it and let it pointed to the crowd ? Will a slight tilting affect the crowd sound ? I'd like to hear me better, but I'd like to keep a good sound for the people who came listening to us Thanks in advance.
