Playing in a live band gives you the opportunity to meet new people and participate in exciting shows at local venues. Live bands must be able to entertain their fans with a memorable concert, and the appearance of your equipment can either help or hinder your ability to make a lasting impression. One of the easiest ways to help establish the mood on stage and brand your band is by investing in speaker art.

Here are two cool ways you can customize your band's speakers in the future.

1. Add some vinyl decals to the box.

The boxes surrounding your speakers provide the perfect canvas for some vinyl art. Since speaker boxes have a smooth surface, applying vinyl decorations to them is simple. All you need to do is work with a graphic designer who can turn your decorative ideas into a visual image that can be cut from vinyl sheets.

Simply peel the vinyl decals off the protective backing and apply them to your speaker boxes. Vinyl art allows you to easily incorporate your band's logo onto the equipment you will use on stage during live shows.

Since you can easily peel off the vinyl decals without damaging your speaker boxes when you are ready for a new look, vinyl provides a versatile and affordable solution for creating a cool customized look.

2. Paint the grill cloth.

Another simple way to customize the appearance of your band's speakers is to change the color of the grill cloth. Most grill cloth covering speaker cones comes in a matte black color. If you want to add some interest to your sound system, using a fabric dye can be a simple way to create a new on-stage look.

All you need to do is remove the grill cloth from your existing speakers. Soak the cloth in some bleach to help lighten up the black color, then use a fabric dye you purchased from your local craft store to give the grill cloth a new color.

It's best to use water that is at least 140 degrees Fahrenheit and add a tablespoon of laundry soap to your dye to ensure that the color is distributed evenly throughout your new grill cloth. When you have achieved the desired color, spread your grill cloth on some newspaper to dry, then reassemble your speakers once again.

Finding ways to make your band more memorable can be a challenge, but incorporating speaker art into your on-stage look can be a great way to make a lasting impression. Try investing in some vinyl decals for your speaker boxes and using fabric dye to change the color of your speakers' grill cloths to create a customized sound system.
