Author Topic:  Need a small scrap of tolex covering for a Nashville 400

I recently acquired an early 90's Peavey Nashville 400 in a bulk gear purchase. The amp sounds really good and looks pretty clean except for the 3-4" chunk of the rubberized covering that's missing along the front edge of the bottom panel. If anyone knows where I could buy some matching tolex or has a small scrap (about 3"x6") perhaps off of a trashed amp, that they could mail me, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

p.s. I know I could just blacken it with a sharpie or some paint, but I thought a patch might look better. Any suggestions?

Hopefully, Some Nice Forumite will send you a suitable scrap. However, here is a thought: If you're not already aware of it, you can get a Package of Tolex Samples (4" x 4", I think) from AES:

FWIW, I have dealt with AES off and on for many years with no complaints.

HTH. Good Luck with The Project! Cool

Randall,
I am going through a Fender amp and have some excess tolex.
If you think the Fender tolex would match the Peavey tolex, I would be happy to send you a piece. Very Happy

This is great! Thanks for the tip on AES. I needed some tolex for my Vegas 400. Thanks a million.

This stuff seems to be a bit thicker & grainier than fender tolex, but thanks for the offer Erv.

Hopefully Eddie can help you out. If not, let me know. I have some material from a back brace off an 89 NV400 I can send you. I have some scraps from a newer model too and some other odds and ends that I can look through.

There were 3 or 4 patterns of covering on these amps over the years.

Maybe trim some off the bag that contains the reverb tank. In my N400 it's made of the same tolex.

Remove the chassis and take a look at the amp's own Tolex that extends around to the inside the cabinet. There might be enough excess harvestable material there to patch a small area.

How about a strip of black duct tape?

Thanks to all the forum members for their offers and sugestions. Jerry Overstreet sent me a small piece that I think is going to work out fine. I'll try to post a picture of the repair when I get it put back together.
