    Does anyone know any places where i can get a grill for my bass cabinet.
    I know you can get it in bulk, but are there any that sell around 10 square feet?

  3. If you are looking for grille cloth, which I assume you are, there are tons of places...

    is a start. It's a place I use. And fyi, it's sold by the yard. IF you are going to rewrap this yourself, you're gonna want to make sure it's tight, secure and symmetrical, or it'll look like ass. You should be able to make a quarter bounce off the front of a properly stretched grille.

    PM me if you want some pointers.

    Another place might be www.tchweb.com. They handle all sorts of hardware for music gear.

    thanks for the reply, but i was looking into a metal grill. I found sites that sell maybe 10 by 8 feet. Thats way too much for just one cab.

    And it geys bigger with every printing. Plus they have one of the best designed e-commerce sites around. The indexing is great, there are lots of select-by-parameter trees, and lots of product info links. Not to mention solid models.
