Tone Freq's 2008 Summer NAMM Safari: Amp Toppers

Let’s not kid ourselves… we are hunters – gear hunters! NAMM is the biggest hunt of them all. After years of attending this trade show I always look for the coolest tool or accessory to make my life as a guitarist better. This invention is one of them.
Amp Toppers is an idea whose time has truly come. As I admired its simplicity I wished I would have thought of this one. Like most of you I find myself setting up for a gig placing my keys, picks, beer, tuner and God knows whatever else I can up on the top of my amp. This durable ABS plastic molded caddy is designed to keep all of your crap in one easy to find place. It even has a non-skid rubber mat on the bottom of the tray to keep your beer in place after hitting that last power chord! It comes in two styles: Levelhead (for stacks and bass rigs) and Flattopper (for use with a tilted amp stand). You can also get both of those styles in two sizes and slide right over your amp handle. They are even working on a model for amps that have a top mounted control panel.

I like this invention so much I think I will get several – just to keep my desk and office organized! Sure, this is not a pedal, amp or guitar but this thing is bad-ass indeed. Hunt one of these Amp Toppers down for yourself or a friend. You won’t regret it.
