BRAND NEW Standback Amp Stand

Bought off Amazon for my amp but I bought a road cases no I never ended up using it.

"New 'ribbed' model weighs less than a pound, yet supports amps/cabs that weigh up to 95 lbs.
Angle adjustable and will fit just about every combo amp.
Folds up to stow easily in a gig bag or in the back of most amps
Amp remains in contact with the floor or stage, providing better bass response
By far, the best amp stand out there!

Product Description
The sturdy STANDBACK amp stand is favored for its functionality because it allows for more bass frequency response from the amp, since the amp stays in contact with the floor."

Standback Amp Stand
By Herb A. Genelly III on April 1, 2009

You could not ask for a more simpler, sturdy device, at a better price. I have several of them, store them in my guitar cabs, and never have to worry about the crowd or my bandmates hearing me. I trust it with my real '65 Deluxe Reverb, Dr. Z maz 38, Mesa 5:50, Heartland...well you get the picture.

It also creates a decoupling effect, so the amps tone will improve IMHO. Less contact with the surface allows for your speaker and cab to do it's thing. Of course it depends on the amp and style of music you play too.Standback Standback Amp Stand

works well
By Narizdura La Carretera on June 25, 2008

Perfect for small amps. Unfortunately I lost mine during the first week I had it, as it slipped out of the back of my amp while moving from gig to gig. I wish it came with a case or at least a slip sack, then I could have dumped it into a larger gig bag with other gear. When I tried that without a sack, it kept getting tangle in cables or other gear. Needs a case. Not blaming the manufacturers for not providing one, as I guess that keeps the cost down. But if you buy one, don't store it in the back of your amps like I did!

Great stand. Great idea.
By Anthony Campisi on October 17, 2009

I was skeptical but happy I tried it. It's strong. My combo weighs a little over 80 lbs and it handles it, no problem. It has a real nice angle and best of all the amp stays in contact with the ground keeping the lows that resonate on the floor. This is why I never bought the stand that lifts the amp off the floor.
I also bought one for a friend and he loves it too.
If you're wondering, don't worry. Try it you'll love it too.

Standback Amp Stand Review
By David F Overton on April 22, 2013

This is a very good product. As every gigging musician knows, shlepping equipment around is challenging and the smaller/lighter but durable equipment is highly desired but not always practical.. In this case the Standback Amp Stand is highly portable and lightweight (fits in the storage cavity of my Mesa amp) and is lightweight/not prone to damage the amp. One change I'd recommend is a recessed rivet that holds the web belts to the foam block that goes under the amp. Currently, the metal rivet is wider than the foam block and has potential to damage the underside of the amp. If the rivet was slightly shorter that the width of the foam block it would have much less potential to puncture or otherwise damage the amp's skin. -Dave Overton/Monterey CA

it's great. The fact that it sits on the floor ...
By Doug on June 1, 2015

I have a love-hate relationship with this thing. I've used it a few times, and each time I always struggle with it. I have a 2x12 cab (Matrix NL212) that is very lightweight (about 30 lbs). There's a "perfect" way of sitting the cab on the stand to fit right, otherwise, because of the cab's balance, it falls forward, or the stand collapses. Once it's balanced properly, it's great. The fact that it sits on the floor is great. I also love how small it is.

I've also tried this with a VOX AC-15, which works a little better, and that's probably due to it having more of the weight on the top/back rather than the front of my cab.

While this stand seems very durable, I wish the straps on it were stiffer. If you're in a tight space on a messy stage (as I often am), setting up the stand, while avoiding snake and lighting wires, and balancing everything from the front side (can't really walk around back because of space) is often difficult.

Finally, the "pad" that the amp/cab sits on/goes underneath has the black (top) strap locked/riveted to the *top* of the pad. I wish this were riveted on the bottom instead - it would make for a little less of a balancing act when trying to set up.

Overall, I would certainly recommend this for a small stand that goes in your bag. However, the videos on how fast this thing is to set up are a bit of a farce, and I wouldn't agree with them at all. If you've got to get set up quickly, it's probably going to be faster to find something to tilt your amp against. 3 stars for a great quality product, missing stars for ease of use.

The most convenient and inexpensive way to be able to hear yourself onstage
By Litig8r1978 on August 19, 2014

I recently purchased a Fender Blues Junior III for use in my Christian rock band. However, when onstage it's hard to hear myself unless I tilt up the amp some way. I looked at more expensive and cumbersome metal units that would lift the amp off the floor and closer to ear level, but that produced, at least for me, a "decoupling" effect in which the bass end of the sound spectrum coming from the amp was reduced. The Standback solved my problem. It's easily assembled, it tilts the amp back to a position where I can clearly hear the music coming from it, the amp remains on the floor and the decoupling effect doesn't kick in. After the performance is over, I can quickly break down the Standback and place it in the back of the amp or in my equipment bag. The person that thought up this simple little device should rightly make a fortune; I wish I had thought of it first.

Definitely an innovative solution - compact, sturdy, and will be with me from here on...

This is an exceptionally sturdy solution for leaning an amp back. The device folds neatly and "closes" with a tab for easy portability. It fits perfectly in the back of my Mesa Express 5:50 Plus, or in the back of my Fender Blues Deluxe Reissue. The Mesa, by the way, sounds far better leaned back from a ground position than it does on a tilted back amp stand. The Mesa manual recommends keeping the amp on the ground for "coupling." I'm not real sure about the reasoning, but I can vouch for their recommendation. Definitely an essential piece of equipment for me now...not just one of those 'for the price' items. This does what it claims and does it well.
