I've got some brand new Ampeg SVT-blue grill cloth from fliptops, but I prefer the looks of it after its been riotously aged by being gigged 20 years in smokey bars. Has anyone ever ran their grill cloth through the washer/dryer a few cycles to 'break it in' first (kinda like a new pair of Levis) before installing it? Will this shrink/ruin it? Any other tricks to achieving these results? I was thinking an overnight soak in stale beer and cigarette butts would probably give me the semi-aged look I'm going for here But something tells me that might not be such a good Idea.
