    Curious to know if anybody uses these for their cabinets in home studios. I have wood floors over a crawlspace and get rattles when I play loud or play certain chords and was wondering if these might help or if there's not much difference between these and the rubber feet on cabs in decoupling them from the floor.

    I have one. Definitely not like hard rubber feet on an amp. A foam rubber platform contacts the floor along two sides, with a rug covered platform on top of that where the amp sits.

    I got one recently, I like it, you lose a tiny bit of bass, but it keeps the neighbors happy... there are some good deals used on reverb, mine was $40 i think

    I got one off Amazon a few months back. My man cave is right above all my kids bedrooms and only has a plywood subfloor right now - no pad and no carpet yet. The Gramma does a nice job of disconnecting the amp from floor and my kids ceilings no longer vibrate when I play after they go to bed.

    Mission accomplished for me.

    As everyone has said, they work great. I own two of them. I used them for gigs when I was playing out. Now I’m just playing at home and they work great for this application.

    I've used three of the first version ones for 10 years or so now.
    Luv 'em.
    You do not lose bass. You simply don't get the added boom from a cab coupling to the floor.

    Haven't used their new V2.

    I have two. I used them several years ago and they did the job well. Right now they're on a shelf in my garage as they're not necessary in my current residence.

    I still have two as well from when I used them constantly as an audio tech. I use them under my stereo speakers in my living room now :D

    They definitely work. I used to play in my kitchen with a 2x10" & it made the glasses rattle in the cupboard.
    The Gramma solved that.

    Been using them a few years now, yeah they are great for raising your cab or amp and attenuating some low end that’s typical when the cab sits flat on the ground.

    I use two in my amp room and always use some live too. I just like the smoothness in the bottom end and they do help with boominess.

    I’m sure you’ll be very pleased with your purchase. Report back after getting it and trying it.
