Marshall front gold piping

Post by axeman » Wed Mar 04, 2020 2:32 pm

Does anyone know where I can buy some gold piping for the front section of a Marshall head cab? without the flange.

Are you looking for the thin gold string piping that goes over the top of the cab, or the gold piping around the front face plate?

Bear in mind that the stuff sold as Marshall is a horrible grey green stuff, nothing like the gold plastic coloured string of the originals.
I've just recovered a 50w smallbox head and tried the green stuff, I pulled it off straight away and used some Northcoast music gold string which is a much better colour but slightly skinnier. I'm happy with the Northcoast stuff.

Yeah, the old Marshall gold string was cool, no doubt. Pics of the head box please!

Thanks Neil. Do you happen to know the radius of the front panel, where the opening for the controlos? also the radius for the outer front upper and lower cabinet? I'm building a small cab. I have a Mojotone cab that I'm using as a guide, but I can't find the correct router bit. The cab is dead on small box Marshall. I also have 2 90's 1959's amps and they to have the same radius as the small box.

Thanks again.
