    I'm thinking about re covering my amp and the two options I've settled on are either blonde tolex or tweed. Any opinions?

    Unless you plan on lacquering the tweed, I would go blonde, easier to clean over the long haul.

    For cosmetics sake, I am a huge tweed fan.

    I love both, but I would probably go with the blonde unless it's a small combo. Small tweed combos just look right, you know?

    Probably go with lacquered tweed for that one.

    Yeah, I'd also do tweed knowing the amp now.
