Cabinet paint advice

Recommended Posts

Hi, i have Alto Tourmax SXM112A Active Stage Monitors which are birch plywood and textured. Over time the paint has been scuffed off the cabinets so they are looking a bit scruffy. I would like to tart them up. Could anyone advise what paint to use.

Thanks in advance

I have used Warnex Structure Paint in the past and I believe this is the stuff HK Audio use for their cabinets. Works a treat tarting scruffy cabs up and our guitarist, who also runs a PA Hire Company, uses it to keep his kit looking nice and fresh.

Tuffcab, from Blue Aran.

They do a "pro" version now as well - apparently tougher, but with a slightly different finish. All of these finishes are easy to apply with a 4" roller.  Blue Aran do a roller that will get a nice finish

If it is to cover an existing finish, I would be sure to give it a light sanding and then clean well to get rid of grease and gunge to make sure that the new finish can adhere well.

Have a look through the "Stevie’s 12” FRFR Cab Build Thread" for some pics and advice on using Tuffcab. Page 17 is a good place to start

I used Tuffcab to smarten up a couple of PA cabs I'm  selling on Ebay. I got a good result with just a single coat using the recommended foam roller, although a second coat would no doubt have been even better. Judge for yourself.

Looks Like the Warnex and the Tuff Cab are very similar, Tuffcab is cheaper at the moment.
