    I am starting to look for a padded amp cover for my 66 Deluxe Reverb. I have a flight case but I'm getting tired of dragging that around for the gigs that I'm playing, plus it is quite the struggle to get in my car. I also have a plain old vinyl Fender cover for the reissues, I would like more protection than that and it also does fit al that well, it is too tall.
    I have started to do some research and it seems like there are some nice options out there. I also did a search here and didn't find too much.
    Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks!

    I have half a dozen LeCover padded covers for my amps and they are very good. Studio Slips are also very good.

    Thanks! I hadn't seen LeCover yet they look nice and are reasonably priced. I also like that they make a specific cover for the older amps and not just for the reissues.

    I was a D2F fan but they had to shut down, so tried Tuki. Superfast service, tough padded cover, and (if you get their add-on bottom) probably also gig-able.

    +1 on Tuki. I was loyal to D2F and Tuki is just as nice a product plus the service was crazy good. Reasonable price as well.

    The best ones I've got came from Studio Slips http://www.studioslips.com/. They have some options that other padded cover makers don't offer. At least check them out before you order elsewhere, to see whether you'd like some of those options.

    I've had LeCover custom covers and Larry does a nice job at a fair price; that said, he's a small shop and sometimes gets busy and hard to catch.

    My recent covers were made by MDBcovers; their covers are competitively priced and their turnaround is very reasonable.

    My $.02. :)

    Studio Slips made a nice one for my Vibrolux Reverb
