I just need to vent this. And get some answers. -Why did amp (cab) makers start using rat fur? -Why are they still using rat fur? -Why does this only seem to still plague Bass amps (and live sound) now? -What is the advantage of using rat fur (other than it fading as it gets old and collecting dust and pet hair)? -And, does anyone actually like the rat fur? I hate it so much, as I know may on here do too, that it becomes a deciding factor on a cab that I may buy. EX: I want a Bergantino NV (used), but I will seriously pass on one that has rat fur (unless for some reason it was an absolute steal). And on a side note. I would want to see more amps using that truck liner stuff, That stuff is awesome. It would be really cool if a cab company started offering it in different colors like they do with tolex. That would be awesome!
