1 Gretsch6123 6 months ago I've never placed my amp anywhere but the ground and the odd chair. So my recent gigs I've been playing on some small stages and I've been having a hard time hearing my amp. I'm sure the back of my legs have been hearing the amp loud and clear. Most have suggested an amp stand, "Just put it on there and you'll hear it" I'm just wondering what others thoughts are and suggestions on certain types. I was thinking of building a wedge with some plywood and have the amp angle up a bit towards me. I just don't want some big thing I have to lug to a gig. Picture below is my last gig and my set up. I did get some of my guitar through my monitor but it wasn't enough at times.
