Got the time to get the new grill cloth on the head. Not as smooth as I'd like so I may re do it. An electric stapler helps a bunch. The manual variety doesn't...

Did you use a heat gun? to shrink the slack?

Not yet... Will a hair drier work ? Or does it have to be an actual heat gun...

I don't think a hairdryer will get hot enough, but if you use a heat gun, Just approach it slowly and you'll be able to see it move, too much and it will darken and spread into a unrepairable hole...yes I've done that. [smilie=fun_84.gif]

I scored an SWR Big Bertha 2x15+horn off CL last night, in excellent shape...for just 200 bucks! I think 12's are more my tone nowadays, but I couldn't pass this deal up.

Sweet! The efficiency of cabs like that make a difference if you are using relatively low wattage tube amps. I dig my 12.6 a lot but it wants horsepower to do what it does...
