Vintage style using only the finest tolex available.
This cover was purchased as the finishing touch for a silverface Champ restoration project. While not a fancy, hi-end cover as found on some of the swankiest boutique amps, it's definitely equal to many OEM covers and even clearly superior to some. The construction is clean and defect-free, with good quality stitching and straight seams and piping. As noted in the item description, it's made from Tolex-type material that matches vintage Fender amps fairly well, giving it a decidedly OEM appearance. Because it is shipped folded, it'll have a lot of heavy wrinkles (just as depicted in the photos) when removed from the package, but these can be easily smoothed out in a few minutes with a hair dryer if you so desire.
The cover fits a silverface Champ quite loosely, which many (myself included) would see as a positive because it quickly, effortlessly drops over the amp, without having to wiggle it down into place. However, as a downside it could possibly ride up if the amp was being transported in say, a car trunk, pickup bed or equipment trailer, especially if laid on its back for the ride.
If I'm not mistaken, a blackface Champ cabinet should be the same dimensions as a silverface, hence this cover should fit it as well. However, I cannot verify that, plus the fact that AES describes this item as specifically fitting a silverface. So, do take note of this if looking for a cover for your blackface, and make sure it'll fit before ordering.
This cover represents good value for the money, will last you a lifetime in normal use, and is relatively inexpensive insurance against transport damage of your valuable vintage Champ, besides simply keeping it dust-free when in storage. Whether you have the original Tolex in like-new condition or a laborious, expensive recover job, this is just the ticket to protect your investment and keep it looking great.
This cover fits my Fender Super Champ perfectly. A good deal for the money.
Overall very sturdy and fits snug over amp. My only complaint is that the inside texture is very rough and feels as if it might chafe parts if the amp eventually. Very pleased otherwise.
