    No doubt so it’s easier to find in the parking lot. Smart move!

    Not really sure what it is, this and silky with a little give, but not stretchy.

    Just something I found looking through different fabrics today. I really wanted to find an obnoxious, bright red Paisley pattern, but no luck. If I ever find one, I'll probably switch it out.

    Still need to do the top cabinet.

    I've long been a fan of the offbeat. The night before a guitar show [grill cloth still in transit] I found myself at a fabric shop looking for something, anything to cover a 1x12. Outdoor fabric to the rescue - 5 years later the covering my son dubbed the It hurts my eyes! is still on the cab. A good filter for too bright speakers for sure.

    How is held onto the cab. I would consider doing something similar to my Mesa 2x12.

    Is it hard to once you have picked out the fabric? Asking cause I am interested. Love a new project like this.

    Honestly? I’d say it would look better on a Windows screensaver. Dunno though, that’s just a first reaction. The more I look at it, the more it grows on me.

    Agreed 100% that not every pattern is for everybody. (In fact, the pattern I used was NOT what I was looking for, but it's so easy to do this, that I could swap covers with the seasons.)

    I really wanted a bright red, loud Paisley pattern, but I saw other great ideas as well.

    If you check the holiday prints, there are tons of really cool black themes with skulls, skulls and flowers, spider webs, etc.

    The vintage style superhero prints are very cool too.

    I don't play out anymore so all of this is just for my own enjoyment, but imagine being in a busy band, and be able to switch cloths depending on holiday/show theme/etc.

    Think Christmas patterns, shamrock prints for St Patty's Day, etc. It's just a super cheap and easy.

    ($15 for enough of that fabric to do 2 cabs, I already had a stapler, Staples, a screwdriver, and scissors to cut the fabric in half. That's it, that's all it took to do this.)

    I like it. I think Hendrix would approve. If you put the cab in it’s back the cat is going sleep on it.

    Cool.
    Mine was inspired by the Grateful Dead, circa 1972:
