Does anyone put their amp on a pedastle?
not that you weren't here first but look up and scope the Crate / small table thread ...
Not yet, but maybe someday.
What I do right now is use the front and back covers of my 4 space rack unit to prop up the fronts of both of my cabs. I have a 4x10 SWR being run by a Mesa Amp and a SWR Super Redhead 2x10 combo. The angle that the covers point the amps up help get the sound to my ears a tiny bit better.
I was thinking of something like this-
By all means - go for it! I want a pic of that Mesa stack on there ...
you are kidding I trust ... otherwise, check yourself into the clinic as you've been out in the New Mexico sun too long.
Not exactly a pedestal per se, but I use a box I built for my cab/rig:
ROFL. If you do it, get us LOTS and LOTS of pictures.
On outdoor gigs I get my 410 combo amp off the floor and pointed up at me.
I suppose it looks and sounds nicer than everything out there.
Only if you use an Italian amp.
Best results are probably to be had by setting up your cabs as per usual, then rocking out while standing on the pedestal -- having, of course, already coated yourself in a light epoxy/marble dust mixture.
Hint: for *best* best results, the player ought be an attractive woman. Either that, or a military officer on horseback.
Yes, it's called 2 810's.
Literally.... Once in a while.
Figuratively.... All the time...
Sometimes I put my micro rig of DOOM! on one of those restaurant tray stands to get the amp closer to me and eliminate boom from the stage so the soundroid (tm) can do his/her/it thing and make me sound like a GOD!!!!!!!!!!!
What's a pedastle?
Right now my head is on top of my 1x12 which is on top of my 1x15 which isn't plugged in. So yes, it sounds great pointing right at my ears when I play seated.
One of the things I love about using 2 cabs is having a cab at ear level.
Only pederasts prefer pedastles.
Pedestals is a different matter.
