    I want to buy a basic cover for my Aiken combo. Unfortunately there weren't many of this model made and nobody stocks a designated cover for this model.

    Looking for basic utility and low price. I gig perhaps twice a month and don't need "the best."

    Standard cast of characters: Tuki, D2F, LeCover, ???

    Also, if I go w/ premium grade vinyl, do I need padding? Amp will be going from house to car to stage to car to house, etc. and so on.

    I have a Tuki for my Rivera and LeCover for my Germino. They're the same quality (good), but the LeCover was a little cheaper. I don't think you'll find a better price than the LeCover. He seems to secret shop the competition pretty regularly.

    Tuki. I have them for all my amps, PA gear, etc. They are fairly priced, very durable, and do their job well!

    www.coveramp.com What they don't stock they will make and the customer service is beyond compare.

    Another vote for Larry at LeCover. Good price, good product, and he'll make whatever you need.

    Tuki covers are great! Especially the padded ones. Highly recommended!

    Ordered from them several times. All custom orders. Very quick turnaround, great communication, and beautiful covers. I really can't recommend them enough!

    Love my Tuki's. They'll custom make them any size.

    My purchase went very smooth, even got a friendly reply when I placed my order. I don't know why companies are consistent with customer service.
    I guess that's why we always say YMMV.

    Susan's clamshells are IT when it comes to all around protection... and as long as you measure correctly, they fit like a glove! She always sends a measurement confirmation email asking you to double check. I have found that some previous measurements were off slightly for certain models. SHe will make any adjustments for cab size variance.

    Very satisfied LeCover user since 1995! :aok Forget vinyl, it can crack, tear (I don't know if LeCover even deals with vinyl). Cordura doesn't tear and washes very easily. I have a DiMarzio gig bag made of the stuff that is still like the day I bought it back in 1982, and an Eastpak daypack I still use daily since 1990.

    Seems like most of the posters never saw what the op wrote....?

    He said he's "Looking for basic utility and low price".

    Studio Slips doesn't fit in that category...JSn'

    I have a cover from these guys for my Traynor YCV50 and it is an excellent cover. They have a few different options like an elastic pocket for the cover, extra padding, etc, and the customer service is great too.

    Tuki for better value.

    Studio Slips padding is not worth the price. IME, I've found that a good fit for Studio Slips required me to add 1/8" to all of their dimensions if I wanted a cover that closed easily/comfortably. This was over the course of 4 different covers ordered.YMMV

    I just ordered a padded bag w/pocket, not just a cover, from Gary @ Tuki for $46 less before shipping. Nice guy to deal with.

    I tend to agree with this, although my Studio Slips covers did fit quite well. The problem I had is that you have to pay a LOT more to get the same padding depth as Tuki and the stitching on a couple of my Studio Slips is already falling apart. Never had that problem with Tuki.
