Pet Peeve... Please don't sit on my amp!!!

  1. It ain't no chair, stool, curb, park bench, airline seat, front row score, or otherwise place to place yourself on. The only pressure wave it's designed for comes from the speaker... not your 'um... speaker.

    Thank you for your consideration.

    RANT OVER. :rage:

    Hmmm... I sometimes perch on my own amp when I'm playing. Good thing it's my amp and not yours.

    Just use an 8x10 cab and head. Most folks won't be able to sit that high up. :cool:

    If someone is sitting on your amp
    You don't have a big enough amp and cab or a tube amp.
    Sit on my amp and you will toast your buns.
  9. If my amp farts, that's o.k.............but you........

    Agreed.........Also.. Please do not place your beer, big gulp, Monster, Red Bull, coffee, ash tray, etc. on my gear!
  11. Holy $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ we now have an official definition for "gui****"!

    +2112 I don't care at all if my band members/friends sit on my amps (isn't why they are so big, in case I run out of chairs? ;)) but if anyone places a drink near my amp that yellow flag comes straight out of my $$$ and the 15 yard penalty ensues.

    Our singer stands on the guitarists amp... I don't get that. I play conga and people used to set drinks on it all the time . I immediately drink them. And when they come back just burp, it has been a great strategy. What about people wanting to play your stuff- when drunk.,, I'm playing horn,,, that's nasty.

    I been everywhere, man...
    None. At all.
    If you lay an Ampeg 8x10 on its side, people will sit on it. It's the perfect height for a seat and it will attract people to it like empty cardboard boxes attract cats.

    I eventually stopped taking an SVT rig out after I got past a certain age and saw that IEM gear was gaining popularity. That ended my whole thing with people sitting on my amp.

    Nobody sits on my bass amp but we will use our Yorkville subs as step-stools when hanging lights. We kinda figured that's why they have the no-slip blue carpeting.
