Hi folks again! :D
I've seen in a Mothership studio photo that Mr.Vai has a little carpet under his amp.
It's a standard carpet or a special thing for Mr.Vai? :)
Thanks so much again :D,

Arch

Man, you're asking some very specific questions that no 'civilian' on this board knows! I'm speculating its just a... rug...

Welcome to the Forums :D

Arch - it's called the East Indian Underrug. 6 feet by 4 feet. made by Archstone Authentic Rugs. Model number 234034.

Just kidding.

Dude, go to a rug store - that rug looks like a million others I see all the time at wal mart........

Is it possible the little rug you are seeing is actually a cabinet isolation platform? One can be seen here:

I have not used one of these but they look just like a piece of grey rug if you don't look carefully at them.

Carpets in the performance room of the Mothership are often used to lessen the sound reflection.

The carpet under the amp in the image you're talking about is probably for a couple of reasons: to stop it scratching the floor, to make it easier to move and slide around the room. Apart from that, there's not anything special about the rug. :)

In fact, I think I positioned it there just so I could take a nice photo. That's about it! :)
