    I'm in the market for a replacement screen/grill for my ampeg 8x10. Anyone know how much these run ballpark? and are they easily available if i go through a distributor....?
     
  2. I am sure you could get one directly from ampeg although I don't know what the price would be. Is it a vintage one with blue/silver grill cloth? You might try out "filptops.com", I think they are in New York or New Jersey if I am not mistaken.

    If it's the modern plain old black stuff, I've gotten good service/prices from Mike Holland at www.hollandamps.com.

    I seem to recall that www.partsexpress.com has started carrying it..but I'm not sure.

    If you need the white piping around the edge...go to an auto trim shop in your area and order some bright white welt cord. It's exactly the same stuff and cost about 1/8 as much... I think I paid $0.25/ft at the trim shop vs. $2.00/ft on the net.

    The frame can be made out of 1x2 pine if you need to do that too...
