How many make it a habit to use amp covers?

    I never did before I got my, I keep it on so my 2 year old doesn't twiddle the knobs and flip the switches when not in use. I only use the cover on the head...

    Is D2F still in business? I love their products, but I don't see them on a quick web search. As we discussed earlier this year, their wonderful owner died unexpectedly -- at that time their plans seemed unclear. I will continue to use them if they're out there.

    I've just asked Dr Z if they produce covers - they don't but they recommended a company to me (can't remember the name off-hand and I'm away from home just now). I need one as my back bedroom seems to be a magnet for dust and fluff....

    I have a cover for my Carr Slant 6v that I use. All my amps live in the shop. Thanks to my exhaust fans and air intakes the studio side is fairly clean. Now if I could only find a cover for the old Marshall full stack...:lol:

    And another reason to use amp covers, not an issue anymore but when my boys were young they liked to put stuff in the "holes" aka input jacks on the front of my Fender amps, I pulled the chassis and there were all kinds of small fortunately plastic bits in there.

    And I have made standard amp covers too and padded ones.

    If you got 'em seems silly not to run 'em, I'm talking for gigging.

    If it's around the house, I prefer that the amp is ready to use.

    I use an amp cover when I leave the house for rehearsal, or especially if packing a vehicle for gigs.
    I've currently got the fender-sold ones for my twin and DRRI, but I would recommend bypassing Fender for something with more padding and durability.

    Just purchased my second cover from "CoverAmp"
    This one I ordered with padding for front and knobs, the first was dust cover only..... both are an awesome fit

    I always keep my amp covered when not in use. But since I use the top of my amp as a place to set my pedals, I just sewed a big piece of thick fabric back-to-back to make it sufficiently heavy to drape over the whole thing (pedals included).

    No, unfortunately they closed shortly after the owner died.

    Coveramp is the best online amp cover shop. They carry many amp brands and do custom covers if you need it, It's all quality stuff...
