We can all agree that transporting combo amplifiers and speaker cabinets is back-breaking. The makeshift remedy usually involves a dolly or roller cart, where neither is completely stable and both take up precious room in your vehicle. Not to mention, I’ve seen plenty of vintage guitar amps ruined by casters drilled into the undercarriage.

If you’re looking for better maneuverability without drilling or modifications, I’d suggest checking out the On-Stage AG5000 Amp Glider. It allows you to secure nearly any amp or speaker cabinet onto its fully adjustable frame while its swiveling, solid casters let you roll your stuff pretty much anywhere.
