Hey I was just wondering if it's damaging to have weight ontop of a combo amp and if it's going to cause any damage to have an amp kept and played in something like a tv cabinet?
Cheers

Only if it's a piece of crap. Unless you are intending to do something stupid like use it as blocks for a car or something.

Also depends on where it's vented. If the heat is vented out the top you don't want to block the vents off while it's on.

Amps a peavey bandit 112 solo series with the sheffield speaker only putting the weight of a slightly smaller amp on it. I'm not sure where the heat vents there's nothing really on the top of it so I'd say out the back

It'll be fine.

depending on the amp, but i'm sure you'll be fine.

i often sit on mine (vox VT50) while playing and it's fine, i'm a bit of a fat-f**k as well and it's handled my weight for a couple of years.

the only thing you really have to worry about putting on your amp is beer.

don't put beer on your amp.

This. Open containers + electronics ÷ vibrations = it can only end badly.

It's a Peavey Bandit. I've seen them cope with some outrageous abuse. That's why so many guys have them as a backup amp; you can bounce it around in the back of the truck for years and it'll always work when you need it. I personally don't like them but I'd be happy to have one as my backup for emergencies. They're a pretty robust little beasty.

It's a bandit, it'll be fine. I've used mine as a base to stack a bass rig and another combo. They're tough old things.
