    If so what type is it? Is it the same brand as your cab, is it generic, or is it from a different brand?

    i was very upset that i had to pay over $100 for a cover for my swr 810, but i really need one, i frequently play at parties and would die if someone spilled a beer on my cab while it was siting backstage. A road case would be rad, but not until i get a car that can fit the case inside... that'll be huge

    Covers for Eden 410XLTs are 75. Now lets do some math:

    100 for an 8X10 is 12.5 dollars per speaker (100/8).
    75 for a 4X10 18.75 per speaker (75/4).

    You're at least getting more cover per dollar.

    What are some companies that make covers for cabs?? I am gonna be getting a couple new cabinets next week, and I would like to get covers for them so they stay looking decent for a little while, anyway.

    It's a cardboard box with a lid glued onto it, basically to keep cat hair from clinging to it. I have been made fun of a few times by the members of my band ("anal"), but it sure beats having to use a vacuum cleaner and/or a lint brush on it every time I play out.

    Carvin cover for my RC210... My other amps and cabs have ones made for me by a gal who does pro-quality re-upholstering... We trade favors, so all they cost me is time. Such a deal!

    The ones I have are from the cab manufacturer, but in one case the cover is actually made for them by Tuki.

    Hey thanks for the info. I will give LeCover a call. they are just up the road from me
     
  12. I have an SWR Super Redhead, it has a plywood/ozite covered cover for the electronics. Does anyone know if you can get a cover from SWR for the Redhead, probably vinyl or something?

    They do have a cover for the Redhead listed. Even if not they could make a cover for about anything. Just ordered mine for my Bag End cabs. They said it would be ready next week.
