    I've got some old made in the UK V30s that are in need of some replacement gaskets.

    I'd love to use the nice cork gaskets that come on the Creambacks and other reissues.

    Any idea where I can find a gasket like this? I've googled, but there's a bazillion options. Wanted to check in with the TGP amp experts first.

    Yeah I saw that one. That will definitely get the job done.

    Give Daniel at WGS a call or e mail. We have the cork.

    You can buy sheets of cork at any craft store and cut your own gasket

    While I'm all about DIY, I'd rather pay the money and save the time on this one.

    I also make my own, cutting a set of 4 sections takes all of 4 minutes, all you need is a sharp hobby knife and a metal ruler.

    Besides cheaper, much faster than waiting for mail to arrive.

    I cut them straight, then bend on applying, I use contact adhesive so they stay put.
