Hey,
My friends are (finally) upgrading their crappy player pack amps to something with tubes in it (or atleast with basic modeling capabilities).
Anyways, there's gonna be like 2 of them I get to blow up, but what is the best way (in your opinion) to destroy an amp? I would like to do something other than starting it on fire or anything like that at first. I kind of want to blow the internals/speaker first, then light it on fire and beat it to a bloody pulp.

Pit, opinions?

PS: Well, they would sell them, but they are very low value. They would probably only get 10 bucks a piece for them at the local music store.
They (my friends) actually agreed on this. It'd give us something fun to upload onto youtube or something.

Play it while skydiving. Then last second pull the jack out and eject your parachute.

My friend IS a plane pilot. Hmm...
It'd be bad if the amp dropped on someone. That wouldn't be good. Unless we dropped it over a corn field or something.

play a bass through them.

make loud howling noises and throw your feces at them whenever they bring it up, I suggest that your GF does the same.

Plug in an active bass into them, Crank them full blast, along with the bass, and start shredding and slaping... Somethings bound to blow sooner or later.

set it up on a table and ram it with a car.

crush it with a steamroller

throw it off a realllllly high bridge.

attach rockets to it and launch it


failure to do any of these things without filming results in me being superior to you because my brother and i had a TV show on our public network back in 05 doing this **** with various household objects. good times.

If you want spectacular, I recommend Nitrogen Triiodide. A fairly unstable explosive crystal that creates a cloud of purple smoke when it goes off. Iodine and Ammonia are both easy to get, and as long as you're careful when making it, it's not dangerous or difficult. then *very* carefully place it into the cab, crank it full blast and play, and the vibrations should be enough to set it off. Voila, the amp disappears in a cloud of purple smoke...and lots of little pieces...

set it up on your lawn, crank up the volume and gain, stand on top of the amp and blast the neighborhood with an epic solo until the amp blows up.

If something as easy to produce as vibrations would set it off, wouldn't it be inherently NOT safe?

Lol, the production process is safe, as long as you don't eat the iodine crystals or drink the ammonia or anything thoroughly stupid like that. It only becomes dangerous after the NI3 crystals have dried. Very careful handling is required as small shocks can detonate it. Some mad chemists like to use it to replace fly traps - a couple of crystals mixed into a pile of sugar is all it takes, and the shock of the fly trying to land on the sugar detonates it, taking the fly with it. You could always put the crystals in the cab still wet, and wait for them to dry out, that way they can't explode in your hands. The longer the drying process, the better.

mail it to SathiaSun at 123 Fake street.

edit: oh, they're not tube amps.

Put something flammable or explosive inside them, then run a fuse back and have a friend light it when youre ready. Plug in your guitar and play as loud as you can, then have your friend light the fuse and watch the amp explode in a cloud of smoke. Then proceed to destroy it.

This would probably be a cool way to open a show if you have any coming up.

If you don't want to sell them then donate them to Good Will or The Salvation Army. There could be a kid who really wants to play but his parents can barely afford to put food on the table. That kid could be the next Hendrix...
