    here,
    I think I'm really going to do this,
    I tried propping my amp at an angle last practice and it was great, can't go back to my old way.

    these:

    any tips anyone may have besides reading the directions ?

    I see 14 inch, 16 inch , 19 inch , which for a 2x12 at horizontal, or vertical?

    can anyone show me pix of theirs? If I go to tilt from vertical, that would be like the height of a 4x10 amp roughly, yes? Musicians Friend says this here:

    maybe I'll buy and install both so I can do whatever, whenever!
    Will these extra holes compromise the sonics of my glorious Avatar 2x12? (such as they are)
    thanks

    have you tried putting your amp up on a stand?
    a kitchen chair works great

    indeed

    but the fold up legs would be fantastic, simple

    I'm re-thinking the 2 sets,
    I may just install one set, for horizontal placement.
    thanks

    One more idea-

    Is there some sort of kickstand you can install, which attaches to the back of a 2x12 cab? I'm thinking one long spring loaded horizontal piece, like a bike kickstand sort of. Attached to the upper part of the cab, longways.
    Instead of the traditional Fender Tilt legs.

    like this,
    except mounted up higher on the cab:

    (I ask because I want to see if I can leave open my options to set the cab upright vertically if necessary. I assume the Fender legs on the sides would make this impossible.)
    THanks
