  • What Do You Use To Elevate Your 2x12?

    I am looking for a solution to keep my new 2X12 off the ground. I want something durable and sturdy. What do you use?

    Also, do you prefer to stack your tube head on top of your 2X12 or do you put it off to the side somewhere when you elevate it?

    You could turn it vertical, install feet on the "down" side, and most heads will either sit on or the feet will straddle it, in which case just fold a medium towel up so the head won't slide or accept vibrations.

    Correct answer is; Get another 212 to go under the first, then the head is perfect level. Get one with different speakers IMO.

      My two options have been:
      -Vertical 2x12
      -Put it on another 2x12

      Sounds like dave74 and I are on the same page.
      Oh no.....


      Oh Yeah!

        I use a combo stage stand for my 2x12, works great! https://www.amazon.com/Stage-RS7000-.../dp/B0002GY7MO
        Why don't you take your little Cobra Kais and get outta here?!

          Although the vertical option is cool, I want this cab off the ground because I am going to use it in a lot of garage and basement jams. I do not want the cab on the floor of dirty garage spaces. Motor oil likes to leak in many garages, that does not mean I want it on my cab.

          So, thank you TwilightOdyssey. I think this is perfect for what I want it for. Does it do an okay job of supporting the weight of the 2x12? Do you put your amp head on top of the 2x12 when you use this stand?

            I use an Auralex Gramma iso pad. Other than a corner of the foam getting a bit chewed when one of my dogs was a puppy, it's held up well for a decade now.

            My 2x12 is vertical, though, so you may need something bigger. I recall they made a GREAT Gramma as well...

              My Sweetwater rep suggested these as well. I am thinking about picking them up for my bass cabs, but I think I want my 2x12 higher up than that. Plus, will motor oil stain my Gramma?

              Poor Gramma

                Yes, it can hold both, depending on the size of your cab. It really improves the projection of the cab as well.

                I also have a GRAMMA, it’s great if you have a cab or iso cab on the floor.

                  Thanks! I really appreciate your help. For now, I will order the stand. I will order some GRAMMAs to check them out soon, but I want to see how this stand works for the 2x12. My 2x12 is 28x20x15, so pretty standard for the most part.

                    I have Ernie Ball casters on mine to keep it off the ground. If I roll the cab through anything nasty the wheels pop off and I can clean them.

                      Well, my long term plans may or may not include an additional 2x12. If I have another one built, I will have casters installed on that one and stack this one on top. However, I am kinda leaning toward building two 4x12s wrapped in the blue snakeskin instead of another 2x12... so... more decisions.

                      For now, I ordered the amp stand. We will see how that goes but I am still open to all suggestions, so, keep them coming!

                        One thing I was curious about a vertical 2x12. Does that give you more horizontal coverage? It seems like it might work like a speaker array when it's vertical, albeit only having two speakers.

                          Meh, not really? But it does help raise the soundstage up nearer your waist than your ankles.

                            I used to have the bottom half of an old keyboard stand that could be adjusted to just the right height for my Mesa/Boogie Recto Cab horizontal
                            What’s funnier than putting up roadblocks to stop the advance of someone who’s running away from you at four hundred miles an hour?

                              I have this stand as well. So far I haven't placed the head on top of the cab as my 100W Marshall is pretty heavy and I'm afraid it'd slide off due to the angle.

Which is why many people play electric guitars but very very few of them are actually musicians.
