    Amp covers

    I didn't see any on PRSs online store. Does anyone sell a PRS logo'd amp cover?

    They had some for sale at the Experience either last year or the year before.

    Yeah, I'm a little shocked they don't come with the amps. The last 5 or 6 amps I've bought before my Custom 50 have all come with nice, heavy duty covers. (Mesa, Orange, etc.)
    The covers that came with my Mark V head and Royal Atlantic head were very nice quality.

    Of course, my Custom 50 didn't even come with a manual so I guess I shouldn't be too shocked!

    I agree. Mine is a CAD variety. You would think they would come with a cover... I ordered one from D2F.

    Most boutique amps don't come with covers. You can spend 5 grand or more on some, like Two-Rock (I've had several, great amps by the way), and no covers. Bogner doesn't come with them, neither do Bad Cat, Matchless, or many others.

    It's just going to add to the price of the amp, nothing is for free, and most covers that come with amps aren't very good anyway (which is why they come with amps I guess). So just order one you like from one of the ten zillion suppliers.

    I highly recommend Studio Slips. You can get a traditional slip on cover that's padded, or a full clamshell padded bag that wraps the whole amp. Beautiful workmanship. much nicer than anything that comes stock with any amp other than Mesa, whose covers really are quite nice, but they still don't encase the whole amp.

    For around-town amp shlepping, the clamshell bags are really, really great.

    If something is too hard to do, then it's not worth doing. You just stick that guitar in the closet next to your short-wave radio, your karate outfit and your unicycle and we'll go inside and watch TV.

    I have a cover for my paisley MDT. When I pull it off and sit it beside the amp it looks like I own two PRS 4x10s.

    I think it would be a good idea to offer the padded cover for the amps and cabinets in the store.

    I ordered a cover for my 2 Channel H combo from Custom Amp Covers and couldn't be more pleased. Quick turnaround, sturdy material, great fit and looks.

    I bought a 4x10 PRS combo from Brent at The Guitar Shop and he was able to get a padded cover from them that fits perfectly and it really helps when loading the magic school bus we use to schlep to gigs knowing it's pretty well protected. I can highly recommend the PRS covers if you can get one.

    I'll probably either go D2F or make my own. I have a nice Mesa padded cover that fits a combo. I might just cut it down short to fit a head.
    It'd be a shame to have a mesa cover on a prs head.
