    I really thought that searching on talkbass would have brought up many ideas of getting rid of carpet frizzies on the speaker cabinet. Only found one and it did not work (shave it with a disposible razor) maybe I need to try a different one?

    Has anyone come up with something??? :help:
     
  2. I just roll it with a lint roller before anything big.

    They have shavers made specifically for this type of material. We one for a blanket (technically a throw (sp?)).

    I suggest looking for one at Bed Bath and Beyond?? I dunno. I'll check on that for you.

    i had a LINT EATER. i dont know where it came from , i think it was just part of our house.

    I am sure BB & B has them. they cant be more than 5 bucks. worked betterthan anything else i tried , and as good as carefully applied scissors.

    beard trimmer works pretty good.
     
  8. yup, a decent electric dog trimmer or even an electric hair trimmer with a number 2 guard will clean your carpeted cab up nicely. sometimes, depending on the carpet used, no guard will work best. i had a trace cabinet that i did this to and after a good trimming and carpet shampoo job, it honestly looked like new again.

    I had a Peavey 810TX cabinet that I did about the same thing to, and I agree, it looked like a new cab when done.
