Editor's Notes

January 09, 2020:

These handy amp stands serve multiple purposes, as they provide tilt to enhance your music’s sound, ensure your controls are conveniently at arm’s length, and keep your amp from vibrating on the floor. As you’ll see from our selection, they come in various designs, many of which are conveniently foldable and portable, which makes them both easy to store at home and to transport in your vehicle to your gigs.

The sturdy Roland RAS-S01 can accommodate amps of up to 40 pounds, and it angles them for high-quality sound projection. This one is well suited for gigs at small venues, since it takes up little floor space when it’s set up. It’s easy to transport, has adjustable feet that keep it stable even on uneven terrain, and is made from hard-wearing steel construction.

Making its way into the stop spot is the Musician's Gear Deluxe, which can be adjusted to three height settings and can hold up under extensive use, thanks to its powder-coated metal and rubberized feet. It’s quite simple to assemble and boasts an impressive weight capacity of 150 pounds.
