So needless to say I'm sick to my stomach. I just bought a brand new Dual Rectifier and spent $1700 plus I think on it. I have someway somehow ripped a wallet sized series of gashes and holes in the tolex on the amp. Are there ANY places that y'all know of that can fix my problem(or is it eveb fixable)? It's underneath the amp thank God, but it's the whole... oh ya know, "I spent $1700 on the damn thing" rearing it's head. Please help me with any feedback. Thanks.

eek! ya its fixable, it could cost a pretty penny as its a unusual kinda tolex and btw how the f*uck did you manage that?

Traveling for gigs. I have no clue as to why/how it happened. I guess I need to go to church more often? Anyways, I'm not trying to say "whoa is me" or anything. If it is fixable, how would I go about getting it done?

Mine doesnt even have the tolex on it anymore. I bought it used and I Knew the guy and new it was still good as far as sound but it didnt look good at all. The tolex was hanging off like crazy. so i just took it off. Ohh yeah this is my cab. Not my head. The head is perfect.

always get a bag thing to throw over it when travaling....

god, Im not too sure, you'd have to buy the material firstly, then take it to a fabric centre to do it, your gonna have to do the whole front also!

A Tailor ??

How about taking it to a local auto shop ?? You know, where thew change cars seat covers and stuff........... Xzibit style !!
Tone is all ...... well probably 75%, in your fingers.
The rest depends on your wallet's thickness !!

Keep the faith, baby!!

Do you think they would have the texture of my amp just laying around? Or do I need to purchase it and then bring it to them?

Since its already severely torn, take this opprotunity to get a custom tolex job done it since they will probably do that anyway. I think a custom tolex job would look awesome.

Because it's 2 weeks old and cost more than some used CARS, it's a big deal to me.
