    I have one of the Marshall MG amps and don’t care for the “fake” carbon fiber covering. I am thinking about wrapping it in black Tolex. Has anyone tried it or have experience using Tolex for any cover up job??

    I'm sure you can find detailed how to videos about it.

    Carbon fiber look, can we see that ?

    I quite like the 'carbon' look - a bit different from everything else. These amps are so cheap, you could just get the earlier tolex finished version and save yourself the trouble.

    Incidently on the new MG Gold series marshall have gone back to a more trad style.
