Amp Cover

Postby 1four5 » Sun May 21, 2006 10:29 pm

I just gotta show ya'all what my lovely wife made for me. She recently spent 3 weeks making my baby girl her prom dress, and yesterday afternoon she was having post dress depression and said she needed a new project. Well, having noticed how dusty my amp gets, and wondering how long it will take the dust to start causing knob and jack problems...I mentioned I sure could use an amp cover! So...for $4 worth of material, she made a custom fit amp cover complete with pockets on each side and band logo sewed on the front. I love her :D

Ain't having a good rig - satisfying?


A few personal touches.


That cover is a nice touch of class.

Hey thanks! Yes it very satisfying and very cool! 8) My wife never stops amazing me, and her support for all my music stuff just blows me away (she also made my avitar for me in photoshop). It's interesting how life works...she doesn't play music and thinks it's pretty neat and way complicated...yet she has all the mystries of the kitchen, sewing machine, computers and photography solved...places I'm totally lost.

That looks good,Onefer. It looks like it'll clean easy when ya' get scuffs on it,too. I've only got a cover for my Peavey 30,but I'm thinkin' I should get one fer my Champ,jus' to keep the grill from showin' its age,if nuthin' else. It's nice to keep the old ones in good shape.

Very nice, I-IV-V! The guy I bought my Classic 30 from makes custom interiors for hot rods and such...gets good money for it, too. He made the cover for that amp. I think yours looks cooler. Think she could make one for my Silvertone? Of course, to match the amp, it would have to be done in gunmetal grey drawer liner paper.... ;-)

I saw a Musicman amp that had been recovered - grille and all - with floral chintz. It looked cool.

Cool stuff, Dean!

A couple years ago I posted about making a harp cleaning "mitt" by folding a soft lint free cloth over and sewing along two of the edges. Man, I about got laughed off the board...not a single comment about a good idea...did get about a dozen snide posts of the "So who the hell knows how to sew?" variety.

So now we know who knows how to sew. :lol:
