Received my new Mud Stand ! Light weight sets up in seconds . Handles amps 20 in tall and up to 70 lbs , check out their Webb site . It is a cool design.

Jacob just got one also, and its just what we were looking for. Its light, quick and works great. I think this is a very innovative concept. Well done to the folks at Mudstand.

Looks interesting. I've been using the Enhancer stand.
It one piece and solid as a rock. Takes the sound from an open back amp, and pushes it out the front.

The Sound Enhancer was a very unique design. Even though the company went under, they are still used on the Grand Ole Opry.

The Mud Stand will give you some of what the Sound Enhancer did. We tilt the amp at the optimum angle to sound great to the steel player and the crowd. With this tilt angle, we also stop blasting the drummer with the sound coming from the rear of your amp. Some of that sound is now reflected off the floor and comes out the front of the Mud Stand via the port under the cross piece. The rest of the sound, reflected from the floor, goes up and creates some ambience behind the amp, but not beaming at the drummer.

The Mud Stand is also super light weight. Only 3lbs.

Does it fold up? If not, looks pretty gangly to transport for gigs. Does it really improve the sound noticeably?

John it is held together with built in magnets. It goes together very quick and comes apart in seconds also. I think it will help sound to varying degrees depending on the stage material and construction. The big thing I like is its very light and cant bang around on stuff in the back of the car. Its a little more bulky than other stands, but you can put it on top of other gear and not hurt either piece.

John...The Mud Stand is made up of three pieces that pull apart in seconds and then lock together, in a block, for easy transport. See picture. The pieces almost jump together due to the internal, magnetic locking system. The stand weighs only three lbs. Most of our customers load all their gear....then just throw the Mud Stand on top of the pile. Since it is made of foam, it will not scratch up your steel case, amp or your car's interior.

The similiarities to the old Sound Enhancer..i.e....pulling a little bit of the sound from the back and reflecting it out front....does not make a huge difference...only minor.

What does make a huge difference is when you play one of those rooms with a hollow wood stage that makes the bass amp sound boomy, the kick drum sound boomy and your steel sound muddy and lost in the mix. The Mud Stand will isolate your amp from the hollow stage and your tone will be perfectly clear again.

If you are playing a dense stage or on concrete, you will not notice any difference, but when you get stuck in one of those horrible sounding rooms, you will love your Mud Stand! No more dialing back on bass or boosting mids to get rid of the mud and boomyness. The Mud Stand just gives you much more consistency gig to gig and stage to stage.

Just bought me a set of mudstands a couple weeks ago. They work great.
