    Anyone know of a product out there that somehow attaches a head/amp to the top of an angled cabinet that is being used as a monitor?

    I know that Paul is recovering from a bad accident, but he may have some of these in stock. Worth a shot.

  3. Hang the front feet over the top edge.

  4. Some have got a bent sheet of sheetmetal. Any workshop can make you one in five minutes.

  7. And make sure it's next to the puddle of beer and not the other puddle ....

    I had a dog named Puddles but he didn't play bass . The bent sheet metal thing looks like a good solution .

    The tray is brilliant! Does anyone know what device he is using to tilt the cab? I didn't see anything on his website.

    That is built in to that cab AFAIK. I think it's a Genz Benz 112.

    Hook/Loop tape works well on rat fur covered cabs. Otherwise, a quick trip to the hardware store should inspire some creative ideas. I built a surfboard wall mount using 2 rake handle brackets. Cab finished.jpg

  16. The cab in the background has a kick stand style. The green boy cab he actually puts the amp on in the video is a kick back style cab. So the cab is designed to be able to use it as a floor monitor.

  17. Or a pair of large right angled S hooks. Hard to describe but part of the hook hangs down over the front of the cabinet, then the amp sits on it middle part, and the back hook comes up behind the amp. I had a pair of them, and plasti- dipped them to keep them from rattling. Or just make one the width of the amp.

    Industrial Velcro works too, but it has to be securely attached to the top of the cabinet and the bottom of the amp, and that usually involves staples and glue. I tried this for a while but it worked better if the amp was stood on its end beside the cabinet instead of on top.

    Don't use angled cabinets
    Otherwise Floor or bar stool
  20. They were common on Genz-Benz cabs and were available from Reliable Hardware and Speaker Hardware as parts so you can add them to any cab but they no longer stock them. It folds into the bottom of the cab and folds out when you want it.
    They are fantastic.

    Here you can see it folded in flush to the bottom.





    They even had them on their 2x12 cab.
