First world spoiled bedroom player problem

  1. One of these...$10 bucks at a thrift store.

    If there’s an Ikea nearby get one of their $8.99 parsons tables. They’re named “Lack” in the Ikea catalog listing. Dim’s are 21-5/8” square by 17-3/4” high and they’re plenty strong unless you pantomime Tony Hawk. I’ve got a couple of ‘em. The leg spacing is great for mounting rack gear, too.

    In back of a convenience store or grocery store. Careful, though. It's scary. You might get a splinter.
  5. Yeah, if you're 'in the bedroom' then raise it up, who cares what it looks like.

    Suppress GAS for a while to be able to afford a bigger bedroom.

  7. Me! :(:crying:

    I actually cared less about my amp’s stage look - but at home when I have nothing but time to get my rig set up just right, there’s no excuse in my mind to half do something. I have guitar hangers on the wall - I used a laser level and got them all in a perfect row, and used a bubble level to get the wood blocks perfectly level as well.

    Again, this post is mostly tongue in cheek. I have mild OCD and this is just me dealing with it.

    This thread is a serious waste of space.
  9. Uh, because that’s where you put your feet up when sitting on the sofa! :roflmao:


    (Note: this pic isn’t current, and the bass amp is off to the left, out of frame. But it faces right in to that coffee table. And that coffee table doubles as my workbench - I have a padded work mat and neck stand for it. Kills my back though, so perhaps a tall workbench will be in that room’s future - I have a corner desk in there on the other wall too.)
  10. I actually have a Shuttle 3.08T combo - single 8” speaker. I was playing around with having a small speaker near ear level, so I put a 1x10 cab on top my Aggie cab, then my Aggie head on top that, then my Shuttle head on top the Aggie head. The Shuttle hooked up to the 1x10”. Didn’t much care for the sound, but was running late so I left it set up like that. That was a month ago. I got a stack of random cabs and heads, and somehow the space on top found room for a loaded Strat pickguard from a guitar I was working on. Currently the whole thing is like one of those stacked rock art things - just balancing as I throw more stuff on top, until it all falls. Doh!

    Just EQ it so it sounds good to your ears. :)
  12. Unfortunately the legs are now hollow below the top inch or so - I discovered this the hard way.
    Screw a 3650 into the top position: works fine.
    Screw another one (they're obsolete -> cheap lab gear!) into the next position, stop holding it up and step back, and revel in the crunching, ripping sound as it tears the screws out of the wood.

    OK, so "revel" is possibly not the right word. Maybe I meant "wince," "cringe" or "facepalm."

  13. I have no constructive solutions to suggest beyond what other people have already said.
    I, too, just want to applaud the OP's honesty, and am thoroughly enjoying this thread.

    I got one of these, and it does the tilting thing very nicely: 8486993_800.

  19. Lay the amp on its back so it's aimed at the ceiling, then stand right beside it?
    It should have just enough dispersion for that to work.
