I ask this because I saw a Fender Super 210 on sale within my price range today, which looks interesting but from what I read on HC is bloody heavy, and I'm not the biggest guy out there, so I was thinking about putting wheels on it.
Alternatively, I could just chuck it on top of a skateboard and wheel it around on that, unless that's a bad idea too (is it?)

I don't see how that would harm a combo amp...

I'm not sure about if it will affect it or not, but how often will you be moving it about and how far?

You didn't try lifting it?
It's only a 210, unless it has EV speakers or something, I couldn't imagine it being exceedingly heavy. If I were to put casters (wheels, whatever) on a combo, i'd put them in on the side. You wouldn't want your amp rolling around during a gig, would you?

Lol, that just gave me hilarious images of Marshall MG's wheeling around while Zakk Wylde plays some hard hitting powerchords to unleash the CRUSHING OVERDRIVE!

That's why I thought of moving it on a skateboard, I'd just take it off when I start playing.

It is ridiculously heavy. Even the guy in the shop, who was 6"2' or 6"3' easy and built like a rugby player said he found it heavy. I could barely move it, though admittedly it was with one hand since I've got a broken wrist right now. I can't imagine it being too much easier with two though.

Well as long as you don't accidentally drill holes in the reverb tank when you're putting the casters on, it's not a huge deal.

But it does take away some of the amps bottom end if it's not sitting directly on the ground. Also, it's not all that great to be rolling it over rough surfaces, the vibration can in odd cases bump tubes loose or even shorten their lifespan.

Personally I'd buy a dolly and use that to move the amp around.

While shredding with the button that makes it sound like an expensive tube amp, no less. And using the CRUSHING OVERDRIVE!!

You know, I've never gotten where that joke comes from.

Seriously?
Well, I guess the skateboard idea would work, but I would just invest in a dolly cart or something.

I have to pay my parents' back for my car also, so I'll probably just run with the skateboard until I can afford a dolly cart.

its a good idea if you get ones you can lock so that they dont move. also, you can get a generator with wheels, and sit on your amp with the guitar and ride down a hill
#14
what type of music do you play? j/w


and you can buy the casters, put them on a flat blank of ply, carpet cover, and bungie the amp to it.

Zakk Wylde: "CRUSHING OVERDRIVE!"

Amp: *rolls around*

Zakk Wylde: "AWESOME PANNING!"

and I don't know of anything that could hurt it, but if you go with the skateboard idea and it falls... don't blame me.
