    Any reason I can't stack two tube combos? The bottom one's a Jcm800 combo 1x12. Any long term affects, like splintered Marshall ruins?

    As long as they are balanced, it should be fine. Just watch so you (or a drunken fan) doesn't accidentally knock it over.

    Sometimes I use an amp stand (about $40.00 at Guitar Center) but I put one combo on top (so that its supported by the arms of the amp stand) and then put the other combo on the floor underneath it. I oftern do the same with a head and 2 x 12 ext cab.

    I used to stack two 5e3 1x12s all the time. Never had an issue!

    There's a pic of Southworth's around here somewhere with amps stacked to the ceiling. I would really be worried about it mucking up the tolex, but apparently it's not an issue.
