when i play with my band, a lot of times we are very cramed into a small spaces. the problem i run into is that i literally have to stand about a foot away from my amp. i have a hartke 1155 combo (3500 head with 1 15" speaker and 1 tweater). since i'm standing so close to my amp, it is often hard to hear myself because the sound is going "out" and not "up" towards my head. i was thinking of getting an amp stand to angle my amp. does this take away from the sound becuase the amp is not sitting directly on the stage? i know that many amp manufacturers are making "kickback" models now to help this problem, but what do you guys recommend?
