    Thought I'd add a little bling to my Code100H & 2x12 - medium gold piping.
    I suppose the plain black was supposed to be "modern", but I thought a little classic Marshall trim might look cool.
    What do you think?

    Thanks, I couldn't believe how many screws there were to get the baffle out of the cab.
    Good practice for my next rehab job, planning to do new tolex on the old Haze stack...

    Marshall Purple, of course.

    Purple Haze would be sweet. I'm looking forward to seeing it.

    I respect that. I'm being way to lazy. Looks nice btw

    I'm waiting to see that. You can treat that as a motivation speech ;-)

    How was the process of doing it step by step and what materials did you use?

    I used this, it's a little thinner than the normal Marshall piping I used on the Origin 212 cab / pedal board build.

    GOLD TINSEL PIPING WELT WITH FLANGE FOR MARSHALL AMP ***10 FOOT MINIMUM*** | eBay

    Lots of screws to remove and put back.

    For the head: remove the back, remove screws attaching control plate to front panel, remove screws to front panel.
    Wrap piping around edge of front panel, attach with staples and reverse process to re-assemble.
    I used a heavy duty craft/woodworking stapler with staples long enough to go through piping flange, tolex/grill cloth, and into the wood.

    For the cab: remove back panel and remove side handles to get at all screws around back of baffle plate.
    Slide baffle out the front, wrap and staple piping.
    This is REALLY TIGHT to get back in.
    I covered the piping flange with tape so it doesn't snag putting the baffle back in.
    Keep it centered and slide it back in evenly (top, bottom, sides all at once) making sure the piping stays in place.
    This took me a few tries, so don't expect perfection on the first attempt.


    Good luck!

    Nice touch. If it were mine I'd also add the gold line across the faceplate, just below the Marshall logo, and I'd switch to a small (6") logo.

    That would require that the front panel be stripped and retolexed. But I would do it.

    Thanks,
    That is the 6" logo on the head, 9" on the cab, so not sure if it would fit or if there is a smaller logo.
    Although I know exactly what you're getting at - go for the full faux plexi look.
    I have about a 2' piece of that medium piping that I'm going to put across the face of my Origin20H.

    I wasn't sure if that was a 6" logo or not. I figured it was close, anyway. Sure isn't an 11" logo.
