    I promise I have looked prior to posting! What am I missing? Aside from a really junky looking $16.99 ill fitting black vinyl cover available, is there a better option aside from the very expensive Studio Slips or Tuki covers?

    With so many of these amps out in the wild....I am surprised that there isn't a form fitting simple fender style dust cover easily available for these amps. Anyone have a suggestion?

    My old Super Champ XD cover is far too large for the vintage champ cabs.

    - Buy the cheap one

    - Buy the expensive one

    - Buy material and equipment, make your own

    - Find someone on Etsy who already has material and equipment, pay them for a custom cover

    - Throw a bedsheet over it

    Or, do what most people do (which is why there are "only" a few choices in the marketplace):

    - Leave it uncovered

    If it's a vintage amp, it deserves a nice cover ... well worth it for the protection...

    My tweed Champ fits snuggly with room for a chord and tuner on top in a small padded piece of luggage I grabbed at a thrift store for $3.99.

    I was going to say Mojotone but I just looked and it seems they don't carry as many covers as they used to. I was going to get one there so I guess I'm looking too.

    I just use the thin but sturdy Fender covers for all my amps. With any reasonable care they work fine. Those small amps aren't near as much at risk anyway cause they are easy to handle.
    I just wont pay $70+ for a cover. Even on my vintage BF amps. Although I probably should.

    Beach towel got me by for many years.
    Fits big amps, little amps.
    Machine washable.
    Can double as a beach towel.
