I shop at Jo-Ann too. I used the thinnest black vinal they had for my SF Bassman Combo cabinet. When I left it on a milk crate overnight, it left an imprint in the vinyl where the crate edges were. If you want a lasting, good looking covering, I'd stick with Tolex. On the other hand, if the vinyl is just there to protect the wood and look reasonable from a distance, it's good enough. It's not like our amps will end up in the Metropolitan Museum any time soon.
