    Ok, I'm kind of sold on getting an Amp stand for my Supersonic 22. Gets it off the floor and more in my ear, and keeps the knobs within reach. Also the angle keeps me (or more importantly other people) from leaving their beer on top lol.

    Question is, which is the right stand? I don't want to spend a fortune for the "best of the best" that's out there. I prefer my equipment to be the "best of the cheap stuff" lol. Not a piece of junk, just decent quality for a decent price.

    Anyone with a SS22 (or a DRR, same size) have a good stand they can suggest?

    Thanks!

    Thought about getting one for years. But since not gigging anymore, never have. As many, I always used a chair. Or stacked my amps (4x10s at the time) so at least one was higher and easy access to controls.

    Besides money, I think another reason I never got one was that it was just one more piece of equipment I had to move.

    Get a road case, and use that to elevate the amp?

    I use a Proline PL-7000 that I picked up at a garage sale still in the box for $10. I loje it because you can even fold the backs down when you break it down.

    Another vote for the Pro-Line. I have one, too, and it's just fine.

    I was going to recommend the one I have, but looking at it now, I see I paid a fortune for it. Geez, $77.95. I must have had a bunch of backstage points or something.

    In any event, it is a great stand, works well with my DRRI and Vibrolux Reverb, and folds up fairly well for transport.

    The tool bags are everywhere in lots of sizes (eBay, etc.)
    Mine fits exactly inside the crate. I know the amp-at-an-angle matters to many, but it takes up too much room on tiny stages for me.

    +1 on the MF stand.

    Actually, +5--I have five of them. I've had the oldest of them for 4+ years, still good as new.

    I’ve had both the musicians gear one and the proline one. I gave the Musicians gear one to my son for his combo. And kept the proline one. They were both just fine. The Proline is a little nicer.

    I use classic Fender aluminum tilt back legs, now hearing all the detail I was missing before. One less thing to carry.

    Worth it. Less profile to muck up the stage, and not so much a "toe-stubber."
    Ya get whatcha pay for....

    NEVER discount THAT all-important feature! How many amps have been RUINED by spills?

    I used to use a chair back in the early days... then, I got a basic amp stand (like the M-Friend one) and used that for my combo amp... now, I simply use a piece of wood approx. 2 1/2" thick under the front of the amp to angle it upward on the front side... It's a lot safer and frankly, I never liked having the amp screaming into my ears anyway... and the amp stand does pose the issue of the amp taking a nose dive if someone stumbles/brushes up upon it... not a pleasant outcome in any way, shape or form... having it down on the floor is much more stable.. and I prefer having the speaker throw down under my ears instead of up in my face... I'm the same way with an amp stack... I stand off to the side from an amp cab... not right in front of them..
