    Does anybody have a line on a tolex supplier on the cheap?

    I'm not looking for fender or any other brand for authenticity of any kind.

    Just some coving for my own amp designs, But mostly just good ole standard black, Grain doesnt even matter much either....But I'm open to your options and opinons for sure.


    ANY hookups would surely be appreciated, There is no doubt about that!

    Thanks so much guys!

    Got some grill cloth, aged fender style, from Mojo Tone once. Worked just fine.

    Also at a good price.

    I've gotten it from Mojo and from Tubesandmore.

    Got some original rough blonde tolex for my 6G6-B Bassman build from some guy on e-bay.

    hobby lobby sells some awesome vinyl material. Comes in tons of colors and types. I used white to make an amp head and cab and worked well.

    MUCH cheaper then "tolex".

    plus they have some ecclectic cool stuff like this

    That looks to be similar stuff, just marked up 3-4 times more expensive. The elephant tolex looks great though, gonna be hard to find that elsewhere.

    I'm digging that black pattern, How durable is it?
