That’s dum dum. lol
The bag would certainly help, but he'll still be pissed having to pick up a million peanuts from the floor. I joke about my box of peanuts... I say I use them to ship things to people I don't like.
Only purchased one amp through mail and never shipped one. The Budda I bought had large foamish-covered-with-plastic corners on it to float in the box. Single box and it had a tear in it, but no damage to the amp. I kept the corners for a while in case I had to ship it back. Eventually threw them away. Wish I hadn't. I will probably never ship an amp, but if I ever do, I'll wish I'd kept those corners.
I can't imagine how much packaging a tall / heavy amp like a Super Reverb would require to survive a drop from 6 feet. The box would have to be 6 feet high.
The most important thing is to work on shock absorption. The cardboard box is just an exoskeleton protecting the real packing, which should be a super thick wrapping of something with plenty of give. It should be tightly contained with no room to move once taped up. Personally I pull tubes and wrap snugly inside the amp in such a way that they won’t jiggle.
i would not want to be responsible for packing and paying for shipping on one of those!
No it wouldn't. Says a guy who packed a BFSR to withstand a 6 foot drop.
A Super Six...that's a different story. Or a Quad Reverb.
That amp is like half the weight of the amp I may have to ship if I don't get a local buyer. I have a Legend super lead 50. It has an oak cabinet that's like 1/2" thick It only has 3 12ax7 tubes in it. It is super heavy. Thanks for the ideas. Peanuts are out. This amp is from the late 80's so I don't have any original packaging. I'll figure something out
I looked closer at the "You tube" video you wanted me to see, and I don't think it was the amp shipping in the peanuts. But the vintage equipment in the insulation panels. That is a great way to ship it. Box in a box. Thank you!!!
