The new BOSS BAS-1 Amp Stand is possibly the perfect way to lift your Katana amp off the floor and tilt it. Although, for many players, it may just be yet another thing that they have to carry to a gig.

BOSS BAS-1 Amp Stand

The new BOSS BAS-1 Amp Stand is a well-thought-out design, and if you suffer from directional closed-back combo syndrome, then angling up your amp is certainly more preferable than blasting your ankles. However, I have often managed with a few beer crates or my flight case, so for me personally, it is just another piece of stage gear I would have to lug around.

Heavy Weight

It can handle up to 21 KG in weight, so it should be able to hold a reasonable sized combo with no issues. But with 2×12 heavyweights like my BadCat, this little thing is going to struggle. Overall though, the design is practical and the fact that you can tilt your amp at various angles is actually very useful. It also has padding on all the right places, and an easy to undo quick-release catch system.

Is it for you?

As a speaker stand, the BAS-1 should do the job for many players. For others, like me, it is just another piece of equipment to carry to a gig, and so perhaps not that essential. I do think that a lot of combos sound better when lifted off the ground, but that isn’t true for every amp; your mileage may vary. Some smaller amps actually benefit from the extra bass when they’re on the ground. And in my experience, open-back cabs aren’t as directional as closed-back amps.

With the right small to medium sized combo, this new amp stand from BOSS could be a great solution. Just make sure your amp isn’t too heavy first.

RRP – TBC
