    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?
    Casters! A classic choice.

    Not for playing out, but in my music room my 2x12 is on a frame of 2x4's on top of a coffee table.

    I use the road case I store it in, take out the amp, place the road case cover back on, and strap the amp to the top.

    Nothing, I need my cabinet on the floor!!!

    I even removed the 4 little rubber feet that came on it!!!

    Ideally I like to play with bare feet or in socks so I can really feel my guitar signal coming through the floor, as well as being able to hear it...

    Because of what we play (Think Primus with two guitarists, one of whom play’s slide though a cranked 5E3 Deluxe 80% of the time) & the basic fact that we have two guitar players in my band, it’s sometimes hard to cut through the mix. Especially in certain places in some of the songs we play!

    Being able to feel my signal is a great way to stay on course while my bass player is accosting his five string....

    Thanks for the tip! Very good to know!

    Wheel it right in on this, and leave it there for the duration of the gig. Wheel it out when done.

    I used to tilt my cab back against a wall so it was pointing up. It did decouple the bass from the floor, and gave me a bit truer sound, even though it was still passing some of that through the wall - we're talking thin paneling overtop of drywall though.

    Every once in awhile now I will put my 2x12 on its side so it's vertical, though I do not have feet or casters on the sides of my cab. For jamming with musicians earplugs in it sounds like a 4x12, but this works extremely well for recording. I liked to put two mics on the bottom speaker and then an SM57 off-axis on top, towards the edge of the cone as my "beef mic"

    That stand looks like a great solution

    I do not blame you. That is a beast of a head. I only plan on using a H&K GM 40 with this particular setup, so, a little lighter to say the least! Thanks for the response!

    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
