    The TalkBass iphone/android app is NOT WORKING currently. We're working on it. Tapatalk IS working, so if you need to use an app, use Tapatalk. Try using your browser though - TalkBass is now 100% responsive to your phone/tablet screen size ;)

    Hello fellow TBers. My customization bug struck me again and I made the following stand for my Markbass Mini CMD 121P and New York 121 extension cabinet. I started with an @ample Stand from Sprung Creations and constructed a table top for the combo amp. This way I get the sound directed right up toward my ears and I still have easy access (both visually and physically) to the knobs/controls.

    It is extremely light and folds up nicely for transport.

    Looks very cool. Would work great with my 2 X bag end s15d ministack. Ive tried many things. Yours looks closest to a very successful design. Consider protecting your design.

    That looks SO nice...I'm almost swayed into a MB 121P and cab myself!
    It's a real pity that their combos don't have an attenuator and a horn option...I'm not a fan of piezo drivers.

    Interesting! Other solution usually have the top cab tilted with the bottom cab still pointing at your ankles. This way both are closer to pointing at you ears.

    Contact Steve at Sprung Creations
    http://www.sprungcreationsllc.com/amplifier-stand/

    Tell him what you want. I gave him my design and we have been discussing how to make a more generic version to fit a wide variety of amps. He is working up some prototypes right now. Let him know your interest and what his timeline might be.

    If he is too busy or otherwise not able then I can make you one using a design idea I have. PM me and let me know.

    Kind of an old thread, but wanted to mention, years ago I saw that Ryman auditorium (old grand ole opry) used to have on stage a metal frame that sat on stage with an interior frame that held an ampeg cab. The interior frame was connected to the exterior frame by a rod on the sides, which allowed the interior frame (with attached cab) to tilt backwards, angling the speakers toward the player. Sort of a gyroscope concept with one section only. Sorry cant explain it better. Seemed like it was made of tubular aluminum...maybe steel. Ive search a long time for pics of that gear and cannot find it anywhere. Quite a nice setup.
