I'm looking at making some sort-of slip covers for some of my gear. Some will be for pro audio, some for guitar amps, but the same sort of material should do for either. The work will mostly be done by my sweetie; she's done pro upholstery/curtains, etc, and if I was let loose with a needle and thread, I'd likely end up sewing myself to the couch.
I'm looking for Cordura(tm) sort of stuff, I think, but I'm open to other suggestions as well. I kind of think that tolex-type stuff is too heavy and stiff, but what do I know? One cover in particular will be for a mixer installed in a church, and some of my stuff goes out on rentals, so it's got to be presentable looking.
Any thoughts on materials to use, and sources for same?
