Where to get Grille Hardware..??

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by Rockbobmel, May 28, 2004.

  1. I am picking up a 8-10 empty cab tomorrow. I think it is without the cloth grille. I was thinking of either 2, 4-10 grilles like Eden's, or a single mesh grille made from that stamped stuff. Any Ideas?? Thanks, Bob

    Funny you mention it, I just got done making one. Original style 1x2 poplar frame with the blue/silver grill cloth.

    I suppose you could do it Eden-style, but finding a piece of perforated metal that big would be tough, and getting the 90 degree bends to look good would be even tougher.
  3. Yeah, I know. How about expanded metal (diamond cut).??

    If you can find a sheet of expanded metal big enough for an 8x10 cab, I think that would be better in terms of air flow. May even be cheaper. The only drawback I could think of is that it would/could rust if not painted properly.

    I might have a pice of perf or expanded that would be big enough for an 8x10. I work in a metal shop and have remnants and such, a laser for the shape and a brake for the sides. I'll need spec's though. I know a powder coater as well, but that would take longer.

    Lemme know. I'll do one, but only one.

    e-mail me.
  7. Thanks, I'm heading up to get the cab today... I'll get back to you., Bob
  8. It came with the grille. I just need to re cloth it. Thanks a lot though. Bob
