Intro: PVC Guitar Amplifier Stand
Hey guitarists, since our ears are way up in our heads and not on our knees, its better if floor amps projected our music upwards.
Here's a cheap way to make a tilted stand for your guitar amps.
The measurements I made for the stand are for my Vox Cambridge Twin Reverb amp that measures 22.5inches x 9inches x 16inches and weighs 40 lbs.
I'm pretty sure most combo amps will fit on this stand.
Step 1: Materials
20 feet PVC pipe (I only used 15 feet)
4 pairs of PVC elbow connectors
5 pairs of PVC T-connectors
Step 2: Back and Bottom Support for the Amp and Bottom Frame Layout
I started by measuring supports for the back and bottom of the amp, 15 inches for the back and 9 inches for the bottom.
I then laid out the elbow connectors to see where the bottom frame support will be.
Step 3: Assembling the Middle Part and Getting the Tilt
Connect the bottom and back supports to form a 90-degree L then cut enough connecting pipes to form a length about 24 inches long, with the T-connectors at the end.
Step 4: Adding Front Support and Bottom Frame
Added front supports and started on the bottom frame
Step 5: Bottom Frame and Back Supports
Completed the bottom frame and back support.
Made a minor adjustment to one part, since it became short when the bottom frame got completed.
Step 6: Fabrication and Pre-assembly Completed
All parts fabricated and pre-assembled
Step 7: Glueing Parts Together
Started by glueing together the small parts, mostly one section of PVC with its corresponding T-joint and elbow connector.
I also found it easier to assemble them from right to left.
Step 8: Construction Completed!
FInished at last
Step 9: Testing Phase
After the glue has dried overnight, time to see if it holds up
