    What if you want it to play like a banjo?

    It's got a round sound hole so therefore it should have acoustic strings! (That and it has a saddle pick-up.)

    Very excited about the Amp review. (Are those factory original casters?)

    Those casters are the original casters from my office chair.

    I've been trying to find casters to match the catalog pic but the real problem is that I think the existing sockets may need to be replaced. I'd put some low-friction skateboard wheels on there but I'm afraid you'll kill yourself riding it up and down the hallways in the vault.

    BTW I made fun of the design of this thing in my original Timberline article, but I'm going to have to take all that back because this thing is pretty darn cool. It's the best sounding of all the Timberlines I've had and with this one in-house, the only one that's missing is the Sequoia. I think this one sounds so good because it's got four speakers and a big 'ol honkin' subwoofer. Well, it sounds great when it's not hummin' and cracklin', but that's being taken care of.

    They are furniture casters. Those black versions look pretty much like the original, depending on the wheel diameter. https://www.dhcasters.com/light-furn...-615-l-en.html
    Or something from here: https://www.richelieu.com/us/en/cate...d-stem/1194824

    Seems to me you expected she'd like it.

    Where were the casters? I'm pretty sure if they had been on the amp in the vault there would have been less "huffing and puffing" going down the hall. :-)

    Never mind. Someday I will remember my own advice to read the thread before responding.
