Hey, just a random question, will standing my amp on end have any adverse affects to components inside?

Its easier for me to have it this way where we practice, its a solid state amp as my tube amp needs servicing

Thanks Guys.

Depends, which side?

If it's on the right side, it will tend to be a little sharp, and a little flat if it's on the left...

Just the response I was looking for.....

I was just asking if the tranny and stuff will be alright?

the electronics definitely won't suffer by this (if everything's wired/glued/screwed properly and if it's solid-stater amp [which you said it is])

the only problem would be if something was loose inside and it could fall off when you tilt the amp, but that's unlikely (also you'd hear sounds while moving the amp)

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

better vertical harmonic alignment never hurts the tone.


i just wiped my ass with that and threw it back at you.

everything should be just fine. i have run across quite a number of people running very strange 'sideways' setups. i bought my leslie model 16 from a dude who sat in ON TOP OF a sidesways silverface twin. it looked silly, but it sounded good and it worked which was the point (evidently it was a not uncommon way to run a leslie 16 back in the day).
punk isn't dead, it's always smelled that way.

It's good to play it on it's side every now and then.
It lines the crystal lettuce up better and allows those fragile harmonics to move more freely.
Remember, free moving Harmonics are happy harmonics. Happy harmonics sound better.
It's a fact.

I prefer how amps sound when upside down, now thats not very practical on stage so what I do is get propped upside down on a dolly to make my tone better

It sounds the best when all the members of your band have the same size amp. So if you need to turn it over to make it a little taller, well, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?

I hate to be serious here but ........ some really old tubes used to be fussy about their orientation but nothing you'll find in a guitar amp will care. Transformers don't give a crap how they are oriented.

dude maybe back in the 50s when you were young, but now no-one cares about your orientation

not that there's anything wrong with that.

On a serious note, if you get your cabinet off its casters and flush with the floor, you could totally get a better bass response.

But the fragile harmonics won't flow as well, it's really up to you TS
