I think tilting it gets rid of some bass or something like that. I'm probably wrong though.

I don't tilt my amp btw.

i tilt it against my wall or just put it on a desk or something most of the time

Well, it's going to sound better pointed at your ears rather than your shins.

But I don't. Don't have a reliable to do it nor do I enjoy having to fish back there for the top-mounted controls.

Yeah, I was always wondering why people did that. Is there any difference in the sound?

Well it doesn't make it louder. It makes it seem louder because the sound is coming towards your ears.

a tiny bit of the bass frequencies go and your sound projects further

if the controls are on the front, i usually put it on its back. points the thing upwards. makes it louder. less bassy(just) and makes it better against a drum kit.

Ya for me, it just seems like it gives me a better idea of my tone that OTHER people would be hearing because, as people have said, the sound goes straight to my ears instead of my ankles. I don't have a slanty thing on it either, but don't need one, I lean it against a wall.

It seems to me that some of you may have tone that is harsher to the ears than you might think? That's what I came to realize about my tone once I started tilting. And it's what brought me to realize how truly ****ty the BOSS Metal Zone is.

Huge difference by tilting it in my opinion. You can also use an amp stand to just elevate it closer to ear-level. Assuming you don't have it totally cranked, the sound is noticeably clearer and the mid/treble is more pronounced. You do however lose some bass because your floor isn't resonating anymore.

Do I have one? No, my amp is in my sig. It's small, but I play in the middle of the room so I only have a shelf I could lean it on and wouldn't work so well.

i never tried that i dont think.... but i have casters on my 5150, and anyone who has a 5150 combo knows that it weighs like 100 pounds.... actually i think its like 92 or something but still. but thats why i have casters. i sometimes lay on the floor, level with the speakers, and play.

Sometimes, if I remember to.

Since I'm just using a combo pracitce amp, it's easier for me to see and reach the controls.

Also, I can hear it better without turning it up and disrupting the rest of the house.
