All tolex is sold per yard and cannot be cut in customized lengths beyond that.

If you have the old tolex, you can use the pieces as templates. Depending on the glue used, the old tolex may or may not be hard to get off. A lot of guys like using a roller to roll out all the uneven parts. I would do an internet search on, "how to tolex an amp." There are a few online tutorials.

Yes, this is the recommended tolex for Fender amps. One yard is recommended for small combo amps.

We have a few different Marshall tolexes. If you are comparing this tolex with SKU: S-G404, then they are very close but slightly different as the textured pattern is slightly larger on S-G404. S-G312 is commonly used on Fender amps.

The brand is considered proprietary information. This material does have the mesh backing, however, solvent based adhesives are not advised to be used with this material. We carry a water based adhesive specifically designed for tolex application. Search S-F316.

Tolex is often used to cover hard shell cases. Depending on the issue the case has, this could be a good replacement material for the original.

This is a perfect match for the Tolex on my Fender Vibrochamp- unbacked, so easy to form around corners. Recommended!

This is a good-quality covering which is thin but tough and very stretch-resistant. It will not stretch much at all, so don't expect it to conform gracefully to double-curved surfaces as would upholstery vinyl. It is great for flat-sided cabinets. I bought it to recover some 1950s Zenith Transoceanic tube sets, and for this application it was nearly ideal- easy to cut and apply, very similar in gauge to the original covering, and tough as nails. About the only negative comment I would tender in this application is that the surface texture is rather exaggerated compared with the subtle texture of the original "Black Stag" material used on the TO. Not being a fanatic about details like this, I was very pleased with the appearance of my three previously-ratty TOs when recovered with this product.

I used Weldwood brush-applied contact cement to adhere the material to the wooden hull of the radio. This was a little messy but I think that it gave me better control of the application than would a spray contact cement. The Tolex material was slightly softened by the adhesive, but not to the point where it became flimsy or hard to work with. Cleanup was with mineral spirits.

Good surface. Thin and easy to handle. I fastened with hide-glue, with good result.
