    Hey I was seriously considering taking the screen off my new svt810e and stenciling my bands name on the screen in spraypaint, and reapplying it.

    I just had a few questions:

    -How do you get the damn thing off?
    -How do you get it back on? and is it fairly easy?
    -Once you take it off does it reapply differently?(aka not as tight, i heard it was velcro)

    Lastly, If i ever wanna sell it and need to replace the screen, does anyone know how much these run?
     
  2. The newer models like yours are very snug and velcro'd quite well. You'll need TWO flat-head screwdrivers. Insert one on eack side about 6" from the top and slowy pry it off.

    Replacement is easy. Just snap it back in.

    Also you can buy the black grill-cloth from Ampeg and it will probably be available in bulk for another 500 years. I'd say $20 or so. Early Seventies Blue/Silver "sparkle" is a whole 'nother ballgame. IF I could find it I'd pay BIG BUCK$.
