    The Rod Stewart white Tour had a flight cased Grand Piano on it - at the end of the tour one of the truck drivers kept the case, put windows in it, and converted it into a Garden Shed

    I learned years ago that a guitar is easier to carry ...

    Vox watts are both heavier and louder than any other watts on the planet.

    I wonder if we could start a movement to get Sweet Vine back together...

    I had a 1981 Mesa Boogie MK IIA except mine was a separate hardwood head and cab, with an EV EVM 12L speaker and Anvil cases. I'm just glad the speaker case had coaster wheels and large handles. I could sit the head in it's case on top of the speaker cab (with it's case) and wheel it out. I didn't have to carry it very often, thank God.

    Then there was the Mesa Boogie 2 x 12" Dual Rectifier 100 watt combo.....105 lbs!! Lifting it into/out of a trunk or back seat was a challenge. At least the Mesa Mark II was divided up into two pieces. But that Dual Rectifier was a hog.

    The next, and my last, Mesa was a Blue Angel with a separate head and two 1 x 12" speaker cabs. Much lighter and easier to manage vs the other two Mesas. Except for a Matchless Clubman 35 and Dr. Z MAZ 38 combo, most of my amps after that were smaller and/or lighter. I now own a delightfully light Fender Tone Master Deluxe Reverb.....23 lbs. Siggggghhhhhh!!

    Didn’t Robbie Robertson have a copper plated guitar that was supposedly really heavy?

    I used to gig with a Marshall Major stack, have not had it for many years...but I'm 98% sure that I could not even pick up the head today. But give me a break...I was playing all over NYC in all the small clubs in '77'-81, what was I supposed to use. You know, image did matter a little bit.

    I gigged with a 17 foot Bosendorfer Concert Grand that I bought a custom gigbag for to save some weight when I rode public transit and taxis in NYC back in the day ...

    The Boogie combo wins every time because it packs the mass of a B3 plus Leslie into a box barely large enough to hold the 12" speaker. Ok, maybe not but it's close.

    So heavy, it needs an orthopedic strap. Even a Comfort Strapp doesn’t cut it.
