Mold is growing on my cab!

    I bought a SWR Henry Jr, a couple of months ago used.
    I keep it in the garage, and a couple weeks ago I found that mold was growing on the cab. I took some Lysol and wiped it off, and a few weeks later the white spots reappeared. I cleaned it off again today, and left it out in the sun in hopes that the mold would be killed off.

    Has anyone had a problem like this? Any tips to get rid of the mold?

    I've seen this. My old band used to practice in a leaky basement. All of our equipment was up on bricks, except for the floor monitors. One of the monitors grew mold on the corner. One suggests you find a better place of storage.

    get a blanket for your amp so when your not using it just put it over.This should work, it did for me. Or you could go the expencive route and by the swr issued cover custom fit for yuor cab. would look cooler too.
