When gigging, why trust your amp to a rickety, beer-stained bar chair? The common plastic storage bin makes an excellent amp stand. It not only raises your amp off the ground for enhanced sound dispersion, it also provides storage for cords, cables, stompboxes, batteries, gaffer’s tape, and whatever else you haul around. In most cases, the bin should be large enough to carry almost everything you need, saving you from stacking small road cases and gig bags on an already space-challenged stage. Of course, make sure the bin can handle the weight of your amp. (Nervous types can reinforce the bin with wood braces constructed of 1x2s.) I’ve found the bin gives me a more professional stage appearance, as well as eliminating extra trips during load-in and load-out. —Jake Davisson, Cannon Falls, MN
