Casters on my BRX410?

    Some people say that casters change the sound, some say that it's so minimal it's unnoticeable, some say that's bologna.

    So I wanted to throw Casters on my Carvin BRX Neo 410 Cab. I don't want to lose the low end cuz that's the best part of it. So I'm wondering if that cab would actually suffer much from having Casters on it or not. Cuz I really hate carrying crap especially since I'm a small dude and I Gig quite a bit. But I'll sacrifice my own well being for a good sound.

    Any Opinions? Thanks.

    I mean...if you're really worries about the tone being messed up, just get some sort of dolly that makes it easy to get the cab on and off.

    Not a silly question. Its not the casters themselves but the distance off the floor that makes the difference. There was a post on this board recently that the owner of a BRX410 complained about losing low end and he couldnt figure why. When asked if he raised it off the floor recently he said yes. After putting it back on the floor he said the low end returned. He was happy again. Wish I could find the post.

    Having said that just buy this:

    My BRX210 sounds real bassy right on the floor and loses low end when I raise it. I keep a 1X15 under it.

    Just go to the hardware store and get yourself a hand truck. You can roll your rig wherever you want and sit it on the floor when you get it there. I got one for like $30 at Home Depot, does the job just fine for hauling around my 410 and whatever else I want.
  6. Get the casters for gosh sake. If you lose any bass turn it up on your amp.:eyebrow:

    I'm the guy in question. I had taken the casters off and stacked the cab on top of a blown PH115. I lost the tightness in the low end. Once I put the casters back in and put it back on the ground........ It once again became the monster of a 410 I dreamed about.

  9. put casters on and just tip it on its side to couple with floor.

    Would that work the same? Since the air hole thingy is on the bottom. If I tip it then it'll be on it's side.
