    Studio Slips is run by Susan Bendinelli, wife of Mike B. at Mesa/Boogie. If they're anything like the cover that comes with a new Boogie, they're pretty good.

    I've got Tuki Covers for most of my amps and cabinets. First rate stuff.

    I have a D2F for my Vibrolux and Tuki's on my Deluxe and Pro Reverbs. I prefer the Tuki for the 1/2" of padding,bottom velcro strap and handle flap as opposed to the 1/4" padding,no strap or handle flap on the D2F. Well worth the extra $20 or so for the Tuki.

    I have a D2F for one of my amps. Good materials, well sewn, but as per above, I would prefer a little bit more attention to detail.

    I think I've got about 25 of the LeCover covers, and I'd highly recommend them.

    Got a Studio Slips clamshell cover for my Bogner Duende. Extremely happy with it.

    I purchased Tuki covers for two amps and they are very well built. They custom built a set of a Soldano Lucky 13 head and cabinet and they are well worth the money.

    Oh wow... I have been on the same search! I had found covers from Antique Electronics Supply and Mojo, but nothing that would fit my amp. Many thanks for the options posted here. My wife mentioned that I could buy a few yards of cloth and have someone in Chinatown make one for me - which I guess is a decent option.

    I'm going to browse the options above and see what comes of it.

    I've always used Tuki, but have heard good things about Studio Slips.

    Most of the makers listed above will happily make them to your spec.

    I've had a few from Custom Covers. All fit wonderfully, are well-priced and their customer service is top notch.

    Another vote for Studioslips...I've purchased 5 or 6 covers and bags from Sue and every one has been a perfect fit. Durable and very well made too.

    I just sent them a request for a quote. Are these covers padded inside? I couldn't tell from their Web site.
