Having a guitar amp stand can be a real life saver if you are a gigging guitarist who has found that your sound can be greatly improved by both angling and raising the guitar amp off the ground. For years, guitar players have used everything from milk crates to chairs to elevate their guitar amps so they can be heard better by both guitar players and the audience alike.
One of the best stands I’ve used personally is the On-Stage RS7705 stand. It works great if I’m using either a combo amp or a separate head and cabinet. In the case of the latter, I will lean the cabinet up against the stand and put the amp head in the upper section of the stand. It works really well and allows easier access to the amp controls while also providing an easy means of offering an improved angle for the cabinet. It costs around $80 new, but you can often find them used for under $50 on Craigslist, eBay, and Facebook’s marketplace.
