How many times have you played a show and had a problem hearing, or wished that your amp was elevated somehow so you could hear better and reach it more easily? Probably enough times. There is an amp stand that I just tried out made by a company called Ampendage. I love that name, very clever…
I am not handy and am afraid of hammers, as all guitar players should be, so I was relieved when I opened the box and found I only needed a Phillips screwdriver and a flat head screwdriver. You also need an Allen wrench which was included.
If you are handy, it should only take about 10 minutes to assemble. I was able to put it together, but it took me a little longer.
The Ampendage amp stands come in three finishes – maple hardwood, teak hardwood, and black medium density fiberboard (MDF). The stand I have is teak, very pretty, and has a solid feel. According to their website, the stands can hold up to 200 pounds.
I put my practice amp on it and not only did it look cool, it was easy to reach which was helpful – no more bending over, and it sounded great, too! It’s lightweight and has a built-in handle which makes it easy for me to carry from gig to gig.
I think the Ampendage Amp Stand would make an excellent gift for the guitar player in your life and is very affordable starting at $59.95.
