I've built a few cabinets (and amp covers) from vinyl covering (and isn't Tolex just a brand name?) that I bought from my local ottawa store Fabricland. (not sure if they're national) Last time I was in, they had about 40 or 50 rolls (enough to do 1000 cabinets!) in various colors and textures. They don't have exact matches for Marshall, but there was a textured black vinyl that is close enough.
Prices were $9 a metre for the smooth or slight texture and up to $20 a meter for the good black full texture. All of it was thick enough to be durable.
All backing on the vinyl is the cloth type. Most is 54 inches wide, some are 48 wide.
I picked up 3 metres (enough to do a 4X12 cab) of dark blue, for $31. It goes on the cab well with 3M spray adhesive.

I don’t know much about amps and speakers but I have a vintage 1930’s very collectable sewing machine that comes in a well-known style of carrying case. Mine has disintegrated and I need to repair it or I lose a lot of value if the wood underneath becomes damaged. Is there anyplace I can view the different types of Tolex? I’d like to stick to patterns that are as close to the original as possible.
