Hey i have a 150 watt line six spider 3 combo..i was foolish and bought the combo instead of the head as i didnt feel like shelling out for a whole cabinet just to be able to play at home as well as gigs.

I love it but it is a complete beast and is slowly killing me. I have bought two different trolleys for transporting it to venues and such, both of which could not take it and broke. Bearing in mind one was a ****ing expensive industrial strength one this came as a bit of a suprise. I have since been making do with carrying it around with help of other band mates but it really is not a good solution, i find when i get to wherever we are to play at i have to warm up for around an hour and a half for my fingers to recover.

So is there anyone else out there with a similar beast that has managed to come up with a solution for this please? I am considering sticking a skate board to the bottom of it.

I am not buying a van...

Thanks dudes, shred on!

casters, add handles, and lift weights.

umm, don't whine and pick it up? I carry around a 1960 cab and a head by myself and I don't have to warm up for an hour and a half

if that industrial strength trolly broke, how do you even expect a skateboard to hold up, i mean... come on!

and to your original question, like that dude said, lift some weights, and quit B!tchin

How ****ing heavy is that piece of ****? Did you take the **** bricks out of it, or are they still in there?

A 4x12 is gonna be just as heavy, I got news for ya'. Grow a spine and pick'er up!

It can't be any heavier than my 2x12 Marshall, so there is no way it broke an industrial strength dolly.

Well it did..and yeah im not a beefy guy and am making do with carrying it at the moment but the stuff we play is pretty technical with alot of harmonies so if the playing is not99% perfect the whole deal is ruined.
By break i dont mean like it snapped the bars, but one of them bent and the wheels would just cave in every few meters so no point. I figured a skateboard might manage because the weight would be more spread out. Thanks anyway. Shred on.

Hmm not sure exactly how much it weighs, its 150 watts so? If i got a head i would not need to carry the cabinet hopefully, most decent venues provide them. The main thing is that yes i can carry it to places but when i get there its extremely difficult to play guitar, or complex guitar at any rate, it takes alot of warming up which is obviously a good thing to do before a gig anyway but the level of it required is just ridiculous.
