The History of Studio Slips

Susan Bendinelli first got involved in the music industry back in the beginning of 1980 when she became Traffic Manager for Mesa Boogie. This was just a few months before Boogie moved from the legendary garage in Lagunitas into their warehouse in Petaluma, California.

3 years later she left Mesa Boogie to marry their Chief Technician, Michael Bendinelli and raise their family.

Says Susan:

I began my little cottage industry making protective covers in my home in 1992 when our youngest son was one year old. The idea was to build a reputation slowly over the years so that by the time our 3 boys were grown, I would have a viable business. My first covers were made for Mesa Boogie amps, of course, but word quickly spread, and I soon found myself making covers and bags for all types, all shapes and all sizes of different things in need of protection. By the year 2000, the business had grown so much that I could no longer manage it all from home, so I moved into a warehouse with a couple thousand square feet of additional space.

In order to keep up with demand and maintain the quality of our product, and provide the old fashioned customer service our customers expect, I had to take another giant step forward. So, in 2004, we retooled our production facility to incorporate Computer Aided Manufacturing. We still sew everything the old fashioned way, but the rest of the process, from pattern making to fabric cutting is now handled by state of the art technology.

We have come a long way since 1992, but our commitment to detail and guarantee of customer satisfaction still remain our top priority.

I want to personally thank you on behalf of Gloria Speck, & Cass Broadview, for building me the clamshell case for my new Milkman Half & Half Amplifier Head. I received your clamshell case as a gift, that is why I am writing on their behalf. It fits just fantastic. I have never owned one of your products before, and how the ladies heard of you, I'm not sure. But anyways, just a fantastic fit, and workmanship is second to none. Again, thank you for building this fine product. Here is a link to the forum write up about my amplifier, and photos of your wonderful case. http://bb.steelguitarforum.com/viewtopic.php?t=280038

I received these yesterday and they are magnificent - sturdy, quality feel, fit perfectly, and are beautiful. My oldest amp (1959 Fender Tremolux) is especially grateful for its first good cover! Makes me kick myself that I didn't order covers for my other three amps -- but that will have to wait a little bit :( I'm so happy I ordered these from you -- they're great! (And I especially like the brown).

I just got the amp cover last nite. It is AWESOME!!! Fits like a glove. Padding is nice and thick, front pouch big enough for a few cables and things. "Great job" to you and your crew. The Acoustic Image amp is quite expensive and I wanted the best cover I could find... and you made it happen. I know it couldn't have been easy with all the cutouts and curves the amp has. I will most definitely refer you to anyone who is looking for covers, and if the case arises I will not hesitate to use you guys again. Once again, thanks for a fantastic job!

As you know, it's been a brutal winter especially here in the Midwest. Had a gig in Wisconsin this past Sunday, so I drove up from Chicago worried about what was predicted; 12-18" of snow! Well, as it turned out what happened weather-wise instead was just horrible sleeting rain/snow and it was a mess and I started getting nervous about taking out my groovy little red leather Boogie Maverick. Got to my Mom's where I'd left my amp, and lo and behold; your studio slips cover had arrived and truly saved the day! Much better even than I'd hoped for, nice, tight fit and great padded covering- how perfect for the Perfect Storm? Anyway, it was such a nice surprise and I am so pleased.

I recently received the new brown Studio Slip cover for my Carr Rambler combo amp, and I just wanted to take a moment to say how truly pleased I am with it. It fits perfectly, looks fantastic, and with the added storage in the back, it has provided me with everything I could have ever wanted... So, thanks for your efforts in preparing it for us.

The covers for the Vox AC15 and Marshall Vintage Modern arrived today. They both fit perfectly, as I knew they would from my previous orders. Good work. And the pocket on the Vox AC15 cover is larger than I expected. I can fit a lot more than the footswitch in there. That could come in handy.

The cover arrived today - it slipped over the speaker perfectly!! This is my fourth cover that I have had you make. All of them, without exception, have been spot-on perfect in fit, in protection, and in just plain looking good! And, of the amps/speakers I have sold, not one buyer has said that he didnt want the cover. Thank you for your wonderful work.
