Anyone put “taller” feet on a Genz Benz Shuttle 6?

    Have not opened it up to see if there is a set screw from the inside of the chassis yet. Love the amp but the ridiculously small feet don’t clear my cab handle strap. And no I don’t want to turn the cab on it’s side.

    No screws. Be careful installing screws into any chassis. Tall stick on feet are available

    Are you able to remove the existing feet or just adhere on top of them? Thanks for the reply.

    Yes. Pull the pin in the center of the foot and the rest of the foot will pop off with some effort.

    I have the Shuttle 2x10 cab with some "industrial strength" Velcro pasted down behind the raised handle. Then, on the back, bottom of the Shuttle 6.0, I pasted the other half of the Velcro.

    Problem solved. Pretty cheap, too.

    Dropped by a local hardware store and found a limited supply of peel off stick on pads. None were tall enough to clear the the handle strap on my Bergantino cab. I'll check on line. Any suggestions on where I might find them? Would Genz Benz? Thanks.

    "Penn-Elcom 9145 Rubber Cabinet Foot 1.5" Dia. x 1.5" H" from www.parts-express.com!

    These are probably tall enough externally. I don't know if they'll work in terms of attaching to the amp case.

    Have you considered using some foam rubber? I imagine one inch would clear the cabinet handle. A two inch wide strip near the front of the amp an another near the rear attached with some spray adhesive would work, and you wouldn't keep Aged Horse up at night wondering if you poked a drill bit through the SMPS.

    Those tall feet won't stay on. I would suggest a couple strips of road case plank foam and Super 77 carefully applied. I may have some here you can have for nothing but the cost of shipping is going to be something more than it's worth imo.

    I found some cone style self adhesive feet on line. ~.73"x.56" tall. Didn't need a dozen but that was the minimum. Will see if they stick permanently. I have some aircraft grade double sided e glass tape that will keep them in place. Thanks for taking the time to answer and suggest. Much appreciated. I'll have way more of these feet than I'll ever need. If any of you folks ever need a quad I'll pass some on.
