Placing an amp on a chopping block
« on: 14 Dec 2011, 12:48 pm »
Hi :)

So I've got a nice, heavy ( ~30kg) DIY amp, that's currently sitting on floorboards.
I've also got a nice heavy-ish (8kg) chopping block that I want to use as a stand for the amp.

Question I have, is what will be the best iso device to place between the chopping block and the floorboards ?

There are so many options, each seeming viable.
I'm currently torn between decoupling spikes (spike pointing up), or the ISO-cup .

Any advice will be MUCH appreciated !!!

Check out Stillpoints.

Hi, lordvader. Yes, many different options would be viable and do very well between the platform and floor, including Stillpoints, decoupling spikes, Iso-Cups, Fat Dots. Extra-Thick grungebuster Dots are usually ideal though, and economical, between a chopping block and floor.

Equally important or moreso is the interface between the platform and the amp. You probably couldn't do better than Iso-Cups w/SuperSonic Hardballs.
