    Black Head with Orange Cabinets would look very cool plus the black would hide the dirt and dust better.

    No way would I pay to reltolex something the "right" color.

    If you're buying black and orange, you should just play black and orange.

    I like orange, but I wouldn't pay to recover them.
  9. while many are right to assert that orange is the colour of carrots and therefore in implication superior to black, it is only superior though because nobody has come up with a tortoiseshell tolex

    If you decide to recover something the head would be cheaper by far.
  11. The head is Orange, even when it's black. Rock on.

    the cabs will be orange, too, even if they are black.

    Mix it. Black head on orange cab on black cab.

    That's outrageous!!!

    Reminds me of Tiger tail ice cream.

    I can't be bothered to retolex something if the tolex isn't peeling or stuff. But you could certainly paint tiger stripes on the cabs and the head, I think it'd look wicked!
  14. they still make krylon don't they?

  16. $_1. or carrots.
  17. Maybe I'm just missing the joke, but would this really work? I know it wouldn't look exactly the same, but I've got a cab covered in rat fur that I'd love to fix up and make match my AD200b a bit more. Is there anything like duratex but orange?

    To the OP, I'd prefer Orange on Orange, but black on orange would be a close second, I probably wouldn't bother changing.

    If I had an Orange rig, my ideal would be white head on a black cab.

    Any color combo would work fine though.

    And I'm wondering why, since they obviously would be the best for metal.
