Where to buy Egret 2 Side Art

Post by christoph » July 23rd, 2011, 12:34 am

I've heard Sean at MCS is the best in the USA but hes not responding lately.

Is there any other sources for some top notch Egret 2 Side Art? Preferably in the USA but not essential.

Thanks!

Sean is the only guy, and even then it's not a perfect match.

How bad is yours?

Sometimes you just gotta leave things be and play the cab for what it is man.

Weak.

Its not ridiculous or anything, just marred up with some pieces missing, cuts/gashes in it.

What kind of material does he print it on?

No idea, some kind of vinyl stuff. Lets see a pic of yours!

E2's are the absolute worst for spares, either get a nice one to begin with or don't bother trying to get spares.

Its completely disassembled right now...

Literally the delivery guy dropped it off, as hes closing the door I'm dissembling everything haha

It got so nasty and dirty from the truck ride over. I'm just cleaning and polishing everything up. Its in really good shape actually, it just hasn't been kept up and cleaned for a long time I think.

Gotta figure out monitor issue too... sound comes from PCB, loud screeching from monitor (I was told this is indicative of a bad flyback) and no picture. Checked everything over and it all looks in really good shape.. just gonna have to get a new chassis and try it then.. ;0

I'll definitely get pictures up once I get it all set :)

While I have never dealt with Sean's Egret 2 repro art specifically I have dealt with his side art for other cabinet styles, and in my opinion its not the material he is using thats the problem, its just that his color and hue shift is always slightly off from the original. This generally bugs the heck out of me for the first few hours, then I get used to it by the next day.

I agree with Kern it won't be a perfect match, but since most of the cabs in the US seem to be handled by orangutans, the repro side art is sometimes your best option.

Amazing that Sean is the only guy.... ON EARTH that does this kinda thing. Surely there's some guy who lives deep in forest in Borneo offering this service..

Yep just like I guessed.. Here he is.

Yeah no kidding..

I know some printers that I could probably have it done.. but its a big hassle. They can print it on the same vinyl that is use for race cars. Its nice and quality but its not the same material.

To be honest until I found my side art for my Egret III. I was about to go down the repo route. It's not that bad you know. If the side art is bad enough... Then repo is the way to go. But if it's only a few scrapes and things, I'd be tempted to leave it.

Care to post a picture and I'll help you make up your mind?

I know some really good printers but it would be much easier if I knew what the best material to print on is. Do you guys know what Sean at MCS prints it on? If anyone can tell me I could put in an order for everyone that wants one.
