It’s not unreasonable to expect to be able to get hold of some sort of protective cover when you buy a piece of music equipment whether it’s an amp, cab, combo or something else you’ve invested your hard earned money into.
But the reality is most manufacturers of music equipment products have long since stopped providing quality amp and cab covers – in fact most are not providing anything anything other than the odd cheap dust cover for a very small range of their items – usually the most recent releases and even then, what they do provide is so cheap and flimsy they might as well have not bothered.
Whilst this might make sense from the manufacturers point of view because there are just soooooo many different makes and models with new ones coming out all the time, it doesn’t help YOU.
On the other hand…
- Imagine having robust protection for your equipment whilst you travel from gig to gig.
- Imagine keeping dust and damp out of your equipment when it’s parked in your garage or your bedroom.
- Imagine being able to choose between a range of protective options – anything from straight-forward dust protection right through to partially re-inforced impact protection – protection that can be used instead of a flight case, saving you a ton of backache and a wad of cash if you fly your kit around.
- Imagine being able to customise your cover by deciding what optional extras you do and don’t want.
- And yes, imagine being able to get a protective cover for any make and model – even if no one else has made one for that equipment before – ever.
If any of that sounds of interest, then you’ve come to the right place!
At ROQSOLID we’ve been manufacturing amp and cab covers and other music equipment protection for donkeys years and have over 9000 makes and models in the range as standard.
We’ve also made it easy to measure up and send us dimensions if we don’t already have the make and model of your equipment in our range and once listed, it immediately becomes available to musicians all around the globe – ‘spreading the love’ so to speak
So by taking a few simple steps you can preserve the look, function and resale value of your equipment for years to come:
1. Find the make and model of amp cover, cab cover or PowerBag you need by doing a quick search for it. We recommend searching on specific model details ie AC30 rather than VOX which would return hundreds of results. If the cover’s available, make sure to compare the dimensions advertised with your equipment to check they match;
2. Choose the seam binding colour and optional extras you want;
3. Pop it all into a shopping cart and go through the checkout (if you haven’t already, we recommend you register your information with us and keep it up to date);
4. We’ll then manufacture the cover or PowerBag to the specs you’ve selected; and
5. Once your amp cover, cab cover or PowerBag arrives, pop your equipment in, protect it and away you go!
So What Sets Our Covers Apart?
1. Our manufacture method. We cut our covers differently to minimise the number of seams. Where we can we cut the front, top and back in one piece – completely eliminating the seams along the top front and back edges which means fewer seam problems in years to come.
2. Our reinforcement methods. We bind our covers together with 25mm webbing (free choice of colour) so the seams and bottom of the cover are as durable as possible which means the covers last – a looooong time as many of our customers will testify!
3. The quality of materials we use. We use a man-made woven polypropylene as the outer – a bit like suitcase material which means the covers are tough, durable and virtually impenetrable.
4. The wide range of optional extras we offer. We have what we believe is the largest selection of optional extras available anywhere on the internet which means you can customise your cover to your heart’s content.
a. The outer is a woven, man-made polypropylene. This layer has a waterproof coating which keeps spills and showers out.
b. The inner can be one of several things:
- a) no padding at all – a simple dust cover – what we call DustGuard; or
- b) a layer of non-shed felt – what we call AmpGuard; or
- c) a layer of 5mm foam and material – what we call FoamGuard or
- d) any of the above with board pouches into which you can put a piece of hardboard, thick cardboard, aluminium or something similar.
c. All the layers are laminated together and the cover is bound together with 25mm webbing to make it ultra-durable.
d. You can add a range of other optional extras to customise it.
Okay – time to do a quick search and see if we have what you’re looking for.
If you can’t find the exact make and model or if the dimensions differ to those we advertise, simply measure up and submit the dimensions of the version you have HERE and we will price up, list a cover and email you the link – easy as that!
