From Our Research Team:
Trust Great GRAMMA for Sound Advice!The "GRAMMA" in Auralex's Great GRAMMA stands for "Gig and Recording, Amp and Monitor, Modulation Attenuator" — a slick name, for a slick tool. Just "float" your gear on the Auralex Great GRAMMA and enjoy acoustic isolation and purer tone. And, at 30" long x 19" wide x 2.75" high, the Auralex Great GRAMMA is perfectly sized for your 4x12", 15" or 18" speaker cabinets — it can accommodate gear up to 300 lbs. Auralex Studiofoam wedges and PlatFoam do the major isolation duties, while road-ready carpet keeps your gear in place on the Great GRAMMA.
Auralex Great GRAMMA Acoustic Isolation Platform at a Glance:
Gives you improved clarity and tone
Auralex's Great GRAMMA (Gig and Recording, Amp and Monitor, Modulation Attenuator) is an exciting solution for countless studio engineers and performing musicians. If you've ever brought your guitar amplifier out to a small gig or practice space and placed it on the floor, then you've probably experienced that uncontrollable "rumble" as your amp vibrates with the floor. Not only does it muddy up your tone, but it can sometimes overwhelm the room with bass — killing the overall band mix. Fortunately the acoustic experts at Auralex designed their GRAMMA risers. The Auralex Great GRAMMA uses acoustic studio foam to "float" your gear, greatly decoupling it, and giving you better tone and clarity.
Sized to fit large speaker cabinets — up to 300 lbs.
If you've got a big rig, you'll want the Great GRAMMA. This baby's 30" long, 19" wide, 2.75" high and can handle up to 300 lbs. of gear — plenty of support for your massive stacks or large speaker cabinets.

by Dark Rock Oracle from Fremont, OhioThis riser absolutely works!. Some people mistakenly think they can go buy some foam somewhere and get the same results I get using Auralex products.

Two Thumbs Up For The Great Gramma
by Brian from Richmond, VATouring the local bar band circuit, I have been struggling for a few years now trying to get the sound I was really looking for out of my bands P.A. and my bass players rig. Even with really nice EV/... read more [+] DBX and QSC gear for the PA and nice Ampeg gear for the bass rig, the sound in various bars was either boomy or mushy or this or that, but never "right" even with EQ, compression, etc etc (granted the crowds like the sound, it's just my picky ear). Picked up 3 Great Gramma's off a recommnedation from a friend (1 for the Ampeg 4x10 cabinet and 1 for each QSC sub (with the EV ZX-5 mains on the pole supports). I was bowled over by how much deeper the bass sound was without sound muddy or overdriven or any other bad term to describe the sound. Our regular fans where commenting on how much deeper the bass sounded (since I was not cutting it with EQ to stop the boomy, muddy, ring on for several minutes overtones we used to get in some bar situations). This improved the over-all sound as I was not having to drive the vocals, cymbals, etc at as high a volume to overcome the kick drum/bass guitar levels.

Music Background: Run sound for local cover band
I'm sure a professional sound engineer would be able to work all this out with the turning of knobs and sliders and this and that and master's level calculus to get just the right speaker angles, but for a small local touring band, the Gramma was the way to go. close [-]
The Missing Link
by Tim from Out in the Woods of Central MissouriI knew how much Auralex's MoPads helped studio monitors, but I was not prepared for the drastic improvement the Gramma & Great Gramma made to my guitar system. No matter what amp I've used this with, ... read more [+]it's like hearing it for the first time. Lows are no longer the least bit mushy, all the tone controls are much more effective, and the differences between guitars are much more apparent. Everything is clear, present, and perfectly blended. This was the piece I've been missing! Now, all my amps sound they way I've always wanted them to and the way I always thought they should but never quite did. If you're not happy with the way your rig sounds, forget changing guitars, pickups, speakers, amps, strings, cables, picks, or anything else until you get one of these. I've already got 2 Grammas for my combos (Fender, Vox, and others) and a Great Gramma for my 4x12s cabinets (Marshall and Mesa-Boogie), and I'm planning on picking up a few more, just to make sure have enough to go around. Absolutely the BEST upgrade I've ever made and one of the cheapest, too!! Live, in the studio, or in the living room, this should be a required part of every rig in every situation... close [-]

Instant Results, Instant Gratification...
by Happy User, Guitar Geek, & Long Time Sweetwater Customer from Reston, VA, USASo, like many guitar gear-nerds, I'm just knowledgeable enough about sound and acoustics to make me inherently skeptical about products that promise instant improvement in tone and sound quality. So,... read more [+] when Auralex's Great GRAMMA amp isolation riser came down the pike, I was wary of being duped once again by a product that promises everything but that delivers precious little. To say that I was pleasantly shocked is, perhaps, a gross understatement. I put this baby under my 4x12 cab, fired up my 100W tube head, and kerblooey...instant improvement in tone. Lows are lower. Highs are crisper. Mids are just where I put them with my amp (and rig) EQ. Best yet, the Great Gramma costs well under a Benny.

The Great Gramma, so far, has tackled everything I've thrown at it. Thank you, Auralex for offering such a god-send of a product; and thank you, Sweetwater, for offering it to guitar-geeks the world over for a...ahem...song. close [-]
Auralex Great GRAMMA
by Pete Manzo from Waterloo, NY USAAwesome! Really isolates and tightens up my rig. Bass response is much tighter.

The only downside is that tall rigs tend to wobble if they are top heavy. I took my rack off my cabs...problem solved. close [-]
