With Oxblood grille cloth, I have a need for tweed.
the true source of the brown sound
Adobada and Chimichanga from Abelardo's drive-thru..!!
'Two burritos and a root beer float'..?
This would be the best way to go to me as well. (Other than Tolex) You can get some very nice veneers today.
I already changed gears, and am now going with a more simple,less invasive approach.
To leave the tolex alone, Neither cab is really bad at all actually, only has a couple areas.
I just had a vision thats all. (Winter project)
Have you ever seen a custom radiator cover for the old style rads , they can get quite custom. Same concept, kinda like a 3 sided structure to encapsulate it like a cover, with front grill cloth. A simple structure, but with some flare, without compromising the OEM amp. Just slide it in front of amp like a facade.
Imagine something vertical instead of horizontal, nothing over the top decorative,clean lines. Head incorperated into cabinet,behind an operable panel of sorts . For ez access,the back totally open,removable in seconds. I just want to hide the fact that its an amp, by making it appear as furniture instead. Have the finish to match my furniture, and just the correct cloth to compliment it all. Inexpensive materials, and way less layout....yet still achieve my vision. The amp /cabs still remain bone stock Marshall , for whenever I wanna bust out & throw down !
I love Mexican/Southwestern food.
you mean like Cerwin Vega?
More along these lines...not exactly ,cloth face,no obstructions.
Oxblood on a Marshall cab??? HERESY!
Actually, if you're going to stain the bare wood, I'd go with Cane.
I stained an old Dean Markley 4x12 I got for next to nothing. Deep blue stain with a couple of layers of clear. The Cane looks awesome. So long as the 1960's are fairly recent, what the heck. Would I do that to a vintage cab? Eh, probably not.
Cool idea with the radiator cover. Food for thought, the grill cloth does make a difference in the sound. How much of a difference is debatable but it’s not just cork sniffing. For example those EVH naked cabs would likely be noticeably brighter than if they had old basketweave cloth that blocks some high frequencies. Or adding a second grill cloth would do something as well. Pretty easy to test anyway, you could just drape it over the front and hear it before building anything.
