works well on carpet and if you have a ridge or lip to rest the top of the stand under
no good on wood stages (just get a floor mat or little rug, no big deal)
Way better to carry around then most stands
negatives are that i cant get a stable fit with all of my amps (the ones without some upper lip)
placement must be precise, i have dropped my amps as many times as not weith this stand, forward or backwards. But maybe I play too loud!
simple and positional
build quality is good,

    Careful!!

    By David Rucks

    from Michigan

    Comments about Hamilton UniStand Guitar Amp Stand:

    Honestly, I have continued to search for a stand that actually holds the amp, instead of proping it.
    The fact that you can adjust it makes it pretty universal. My problem was the 1st time I tried to use it, the floor was hard wood and slippery, so the amp slid away from the stand and fell to the floor (not a good thing) I have since bought a rubber mat and it doesn't slip now, so it works fine. I'd be careful on linoleum or wood. Should be fine on carpet.
    Alittle afraid of the durability of the adjustment system
    For the money it was a good buy

      Comments about Hamilton UniStand Guitar Amp Stand:

      I like the design of the stand with one exception. It should have spikes such as those on high-end speakers or stands to secure in carpet. I can see this slipping on smooth floors, but I found it still slips on my brand new carpet floor. Not comfortable leaving my new combo teetering on this stand.

        Comments about Hamilton UniStand Guitar Amp Stand:

        It doesn't attach to the amp other than friction on the top pad. You move your amp at all, and the whole thing collapses. It needs a clamp to grab the amp so the stand just doesn't fall down.

        The floor brace is likewise friction only. If the floor vibrates or is not grabby like carpet is, the bottom will move and ... the amp will collapse.

        Basically useless without modifications.

        Comments about Hamilton UniStand Guitar Amp Stand:

        I have a smallish 12" open-back combo. You can kind of stick the "amp side foot" in between the slats and it holds it there very securely with some rubber no-slip stuff. I feel very confident using this and it's a pretty small form factor. I might think twice before using it with a closed-back amp though.

            I'm looking for amps stands and I came across this one. I don't own this but it's clear to me this needs to be attached to the amp back for to to be stable. You need to be a little handy but if you drill a couple of holes in the top plate and install threaded inserts into your amp back, you can use a couple threaded knobs to attach it so it's easily and quickly removable. I don't know if I will buy this but if I do, I'll firmly attach it to my amp back one way or another.

              Very compact. Surprisingly secure at its floor end. As suggestions to the manufacturer, I'd urge that they include velcro patching as an option to secure at the amp end. Also, one must unscrew/disconnect bolt to change holes to change angles; a better design would have had a linear slot within which a loosened but still connected bolt could slide through. These are but suggested improvements to make unit use/set-up quicker and more convenient. Overall, a well-made, functional product.

                Comments about Hamilton UniStand Guitar Amp Stand:

                I wish I would have found this a long time ago (before I bought those bulky, hard to handle and carry amp stands). I'd like to become a sales rep for this product because I'm sure it's gonna take off!
                Simple, non- intrusive, requires no screws or tools. Rubber feet ensure non-slip, even on a tile floor. Works on all types and sizes of amps and cabinets. (It keeps the sound pointing at you, the player, and not blaring off the stage into someones face. Your sound man will appreciate that too!)
                Quality made, strudy & durable. Propped my 4x12 half-stack cabinet with no problem. (recommend you remove the back wheels though).
                Are you kidding? For a the price, you can't go wrong!

                Comments about Hamilton UniStand Guitar Amp Stand:

                I was the first to buy this stand at it's national release and I must say I'm not displeased at all. It was exactly what I was looking for because it kept my amp's feet on the floor and kept that nice bass response sound intact. It has a small footprint so it doesn't take up much space. It works great on small and very large cabinets too. I was able to meet the inventor of this product at the nat'l release and he is a super passionate inventor and nice guy and can play the bass like nobody's business. I definately recommend because I have 2 of them

                Comments about Hamilton UniStand Guitar Amp Stand:

                I read numerous reviews of the UniStand before purchasing it. Therefore, I was aware of its limitations. It is not the most stable stand I have ever used, but it is compact and easily transported. I tried using it on a wood floor and barely saved my Blues Jr. from falling. Once I placed it on a rubber mat it was much more stable. I suppose it would also grip better on a carpeted floor or a carpet mat. And it helps to have rubber feet on your amp. My Blues Jr. has them and they add much-needed grip. So, as long as you are careful about the surface upon which you use the UniStand it works as advertised.

                Comments about Hamilton UniStand Guitar Amp Stand:

                I bought this stand after reading the comments about stability issues. For the price, I thought I'd give it a shot and use some pedal board velcro to secure it to the amp. So far, it's worked pretty good. I can carry the amp from home to rehearsals with the stand attached and not have to worry about remembering to pack it with my other gear.

                They could certainly improve on the stand by make it so it cannot "open up" beyond a certain angle. Right now, the hinge of the amp plate and the stand itself will swing open to 90 degrees when it really doesn't need to go more than 45. I plan on cutting a wedge shape piece of wood and gluing it to the amp plate as a stopper.
