I now feel undecided again. All these pics of Nice amps

I wonder, is there a way to clean Tolex? Like if you have ever rubbed a sneaker or boot against a wall and it leaves a skid mark? Is ther a way to clean stuff like that?

Like someone said, Magic Eraser. Test in a small area on the back first.

Unfortunately that would mean I would have to make my decision before I could decide if it's worth it or not.

I was thinking about it and since I don't really take my gear out and the Head is going to be on a cab up and out of the way it shouldn't be that big of a deal.

I suppose I still have some time to decide.

Windex works well on scuffmarks.
Also on graphite

This is the plan eventually.

Scuffs and scrapes are gonna happen and I'm not sure if they would actually show up more on white than black as black tends to show the ends of the white-ish fibers. Anywhere the tolex gets torn you can super glue it back down.

As for the dirt... Baby wipes... couple of bucks a packet, will last you ages if just using them for amps, not sure how I coped without them before I had a child.
