New cover for the Lowecones.
Here I have a stainless one antiqued with black.
Thanks to Red Dog for the design.

Nope I don't think they need to be covered either. But they sure do look good that way!

I have only had one person that smooshed a cone that I know of and he stepped on his guitar. So I think they are pretty safe uncovered. I have smooshed one too myself but that was an extreme deal too testing them out hahaa!

Huh.  I never thought your cones needed to be covered.  But, that is  a great looking cover and a nice relic job all around.
