Back in 2005, when we did our first Custom Stage Art product, it was a Custom Grill Cloth. Today, our Custom Grill Cloth is still one of our flagship products. Along with that status comes a lot of demand for it. However, there has also been a lot of demand for a more affordable version of the Custom Grill Cloth. And thus, the Custom Cab Covers were born.
While the Custom Grill Cloth remains popular, the Cab Covers offer a variety of cool options not available in the Custom Grill Cloth. The Cab Covers can be applied to either the inner, exposed baffle of a cabinet (over the grill cloth), or it can be applied to the entire perimeter of the exterior dimensions of the cabinet itself. The Cab Cover can also be applied to an exterior dimension of several cabs, creating one large canvas of self-expression.

Configure & Order
Although from a distance there may not appear to be much of a difference between these two products, there are some substantial differences that separate the two.
The main distinctions between the Custom Grill Cloth and Custom Cab Covers are the substrates and installation. Where the Custom Grill Cloth is applied by staples around the perimeter of your baffle (just like a normal grill cloth), the Cab Covers are applied by velcro around the perimeter of either the cab or exposed baffle. This separate install process creates not only a world of new options (attached to four cabs together, rather than one Custom Grill Cloth for each cab) but also creates an extremely quick and easy install that anyone can perform in minutes.
The other big distinction is the substrate. Our Custom Grill Cloth boasts our 10:16 Italian-Import fabric, offering 100% Sonic Transparency. Our Cab Covers, however, do not use the same fabric. We use the same Vinyl Mesh as our Scrims and Backdrops, which offer an 85% blow-through; meaning that the actual substrate is perforated throughout. That perforation allows an almost entirely uninhibited tonality of your cabinet. Although not 100%, it's close enough for our clients who love their Custom Cab Covers. And at half the price of a Custom Grill Cloth, our budget-minded clients can look legit without breaking the bank.
Why EC? The answer is pretty simple; this is all we do. Our passion, our pursuit, and our purpose is to design, invent, and fabricate the absolute best products for the creative and practical application of artwork on stage. We are a music industry exclusive company. Discerning professional musicians are our lifeblood, and our sole and only focus.
Your local print shop doesn't know what it's like to get to a venue and not have the proper Fire Cert to hang your backdrop: we do. Your sign shop doesn't understand the tone they're choking out of your drumhead with their screen printing: we do. Hardware stores don't know that the PVC pipe you're buying to build your own scrim stands will cost you $50-$150 to check it for a flight because it won't collapse small enough to be a carry-on: we do.
This is not a hobby, this is not a side project. This is an all-consuming passion that we want to share with every band and every artist making music today. We don't cut any corners, we don't make any excuses.
Top quality, no compromise; that's EC.
