[Harp-L] Speaking of amp stands...
I did this to my RI Princeton Reverb with a set of 14" tilt back legs
because i like how the tone opens up on the PRRI when it' s tilted
back. And i don't like carrying around an amp stand.
Besides the tilt back legs you will need a set of Fender metal amp
corners and a set of Fender Sphinx Glides, both of which are
available through Musicians Friend (and elsewhere) for a relatively
You need the corners to protect the cabinet since the rear bottom
corners of the amp will rest on the floor supporting the weight of
the amp when the amp is tilted back. All Fender amps with tilt back
legs have metal amp corners. Metal amp corners are not a bad idea
When you put the corners on, you have to take the little metal "feet"
off the bottom of the amp or else the corners won't fit. The feet
are just round metal tabs that have sharp jagged prong shaped edges
that dig into the bottom of the cabinet to hold them on. Pry them off
in order to put the amp corners on. Replace these "feet" with
Fender Sphinx glides that are slightly larger, nicer feet that attach
to the bottom of the amp with a screw that fits perfectly through the
bottom screw hole on the Fender metal amp corner so that the same
screw attaches the Sphinx Glide and the bottom of the amp corner to
the cabinet and also serves to align the Sphinx Glides into proper
It's important to measure carefully when you attach the tilt back
legs to the amp cabinet. I used my Fender Super Reverb Reissue for
comparison to get the proper positioning. Actually, i had a friend
of mine who is a finish carpenter do it. Properly positioning the
mounting screws for the legs and the "stops" is very important.
Done properly, I think it's a great mod that favorably affects the
tone of the amp more than one might think.
Hope this helps.
