    Hi all

    I’m looking to buy a case for a new amp. I’d like the case to be well padded and envelope the amp, like a clam shell.

    I own a studio slips case for a different amp. I like it a lot but am wondering about alternatives that might be less expensive.

    any ideas? Thanks in advance.

    I've got a Tuki cover for my Two Rock head. Not exactly cheap, but pretects the amp really well.

    I won't use anybody else since I found these guys. And, no, I have no affiliation other than a very satisfied customer.

    I cover my 1969 Sunn Solarus cabinet with a Mexican blanket. It's not 4-sided protection, but it looks a hell of a lot cooler than some kind of black polyester straight jacket.

    I have a Tuki cover for my 62 Vibrolux and the padding inside turned to dust and started coming out. Tuki would not stand behind the cover so I would stay away.
    Thanks john

    I have one of these for home-quilted nylon padded. They also make more heavy duty models with thick vinyl that might be better for gigging. Canadian company, reasonable prices, prompt, good communication. No affiliation.

    I got one of their canvas covers for a (Mather Cabs) TV front Pro cabinet, and it was perfect. I definitely recomend them also, but I think the OP is looking a hard 'case', not a cover.

    Another satisfied Tuki cover user here. Been using them for many years without any issues. You can also order your cover with a flap that will cover the bottom of your amp for complete coverage.

    Op here. Soft case with good padding is what I’m after. Thanks!

    FWIW, Custom Amp Covers and Tuki are one in the same company....

    I need to do this.
    Currently my Bad Cat Trem Cat is covered only by a thin layer of dust.

    I second coveramp.com I have 3 of the vinyl covers. They are well made; a little pricey but perfect for me. For smaller amps, big, heavy anvil style road cases were overkill. Most slip/dust covers were too flimsy. These coveramps: perfect!
