Yea hardware store there arent special wheels for em or anything. They usually mount with screw.

i just thought of a problem tho.
i have a combo amp (212) and if i put wheels on the bottom then to wheel it around i will have to be hunched over cause the amp wouldnt be tall enough

What amp?

Wheels on an amp generally isn't a good idea, especially tube. It's one thing to wheel an amp across the gym floor, it's another to wheel it on a cobblestone street. Even the jagged bumps of a seemingly even gravel road can beat up the inside of your amp. If you must, the best solution is a padded road case that will absorb a lot of the bumps and such. Next up would be a dolly of some sort. Carry your amp on the street, then place it on the dolly to move it around on smooth surfaces.

^yea, a padded hardcase is by far the best for an amp

These work great. I use them on a cabinet of mine. The only thing you need a 5/8 inch drilling bit, smaller/normal bit for pilot holes, drill, and screwdriver. The ernie ball pop-out kind (these) are best.

it's not good to put casters on an amp though. You're better off getting something like this myah, but if find these cheap so I would buy one specifically designed for your amp. I am planning on getting this one for my AC30 right myah

Yeah, I've never used the casters on my combo. The 90 lbs. weight is part of the fun

I don't know, I'm kinda lanky, weigh 105 pounds at 15... I'm sure the amp will sound good enough to muster some willpower to take it to band practice

I was like the same way man. I found it much easier with a head and cab than a combo, carry it all seperatly.

If you look into amp cases you will find most have 2 handles on them, which beats the hell out of that one handle manufacturers put right on top of an amp.

Yeah it would be more convenient, but this was a really good deal for the combo (650$, barely used) so I just couldn't say no. I've seen a mod where someone took apart the chassie of the combo and made a head out of it.

I hope I don't get to a point where this might be needed
