What are you folks using to set your amp on? I would like to get mine up off the floor so bending over to adjust them is a bit easier on the old back. Any suggestions?

(Insert Geezer Smilie here)

Thanks.

The only stands I use are chairs at gigs when I bring a small combo amp to mic through the PA.

Have you an old milk crate you can flip upside down...they always work great and can carry your loose gear at gig.

These do a slight lift and a tilt, I've only seen them online.

in case you cannot find a suitable chair or milk crate!

They're nice, but pricey.

If you don't have the scratch, something like this will do the trick:

we built 2 boxes, covered them w/ rat fur, a couple handles on the sides.
they serve double duty.
we pack drum hardware, cable bags etc in them to get to the gig.
& flip em over & put the amps on them

I really like the OnStage Tilt-Back Pro stand.

I have two, and use mine with my Deluxe Reverb and my Hot Rod Deluxe. This stand folds flat for storage, does the job with only two adjustment knobs (instead of four for quick, easy setup), is light, and yet is extremely sturdy. They got it right on this one.

Thanks for the responses. I appreciate it.

I thought about a used empty 2 x 12 cabinet and standing it on end. Inside build shelving to brace it.

1960's era Samsonite suitcase. The top and bottom sides are angled so the lean the amp back; a bit like Fender tilt back legs. My guitar stands fit inside the suitcase for EZ transportas well. I have about ten of Samsonites left in my basement that are still like new. They are getting harder to find at the thrift stores though. Usually about $5.

A Chair will always work too.

How does this one fold flat? Can you post a photo?

Check out www.ampendage.com for 2 solid wood amp stands in maple or teak or in std. black 3/4 in. MDF. All are strong, look great, raise amp 1 ft. off floor & tilt back toward player.
Here's mine...

I need something to angle my amp up toward me but just can't being myself to spend on anything. I mean, all I need to do it tilt my amp, I should be able to figure out how to do that with something I already have laying around right? I'm still thinking, haven't found the answer yet. :unsure:

I use a Triad Standback. It doesn’t elevate the amp, just tilts it back. Worked well. Folds up about the same size as a stick bag.

I have a combo amp that came with a piece of 2x4 wrapped in cloth tape- for the frugal. Works great.
