Looked through all the bits of stuff left over from projects. Unfortunately none of what you need.

I looked into that for my build and it's nice, BUT EXPENSIVE!!!!

For an 18W with a 12" speaker cabinet it was $275 + $15 shipping!!

If ever there was a placebo, it was grill cloth. My amp doesn't sound as good because my grill cloth is the wrong color. ;)

That's what I bought, but it's not the EC Collins grill cloth and it's not even close.

I have bought almost all my Tolex and cloth from Solsound here in the UK. He usually has a wide selection.

Wow, it is expensive! I bought some for my 1974 years ago when it was cheaper. It sure looks nice though. :oops:

The original material Marshall use to buy was the headliner cloth for London Taxicabs. It has Not been made in decades. It takes Eric at E.C. Collins a number of hours to hand screen the grills like they were originally done. The coating is a rubberized material and is screened on in a four layer process.. Takes alot of time..

I definitely respect what Mr. Collins has done with recreating a true copy of that original grill cloth material.
