Clamshell Gig Bag

Choose your model from our List of Thousands for prices
**The Clamshell Gig bag is made with handle openings. If you want your bag made with webbing handles and no handle openings, please choose the Briefcase Gig Bag.
Let's face it; unless you’ve got a roadie, your gear weighs enough without the ATA case.

Since it’s a bag, and not just a slipcover, the Clamshell Gig Bag protects your gear completely: top, sides and bottom with an opening for the handle(s). Our handle openings are reinforced so they will never fray or come apart like the more commonly bound openings.

Our revolutionary design makes putting heavy equipment into a soft bag incredibly easy because the bag opens flat and the fit is always perfect. The Clamshell can be made in most any shape.

Studio Slips Clamshell Gig Bags are made with tough water resistant 1000 Denier nylon canvas (Cordura) on the outside and thick quilted padding on the inside to cushion and protect your gear from bumps, scratches and weather. We use heavy duty top quality zippers that glide open and closed -- no sticky Velcro to pick up lint.

You can add leather strips for extra protection on the bottom of the bag, a shoulder strap with shoulder pad and even Caster Openings to roll your gear on wheels into the bag. And of course, you can add a pocket to carry a footswitch, extra cords, or a clean tee shirt.

Custom made in the USA.
*Please note: We will send dimensions to you when we receive your order so you can double check that the correct model was ordered and that the dimensions we have match your model.

Sorry it has taken me a few days to get back to you about my custom cover. I received it on time last week and I am REALLY impressed with the job y'all did! The hauling handles work perfectly. Now, all I have to do is zip my amp up in the case, and pick it up like an AC30. Running those webbing straps around underneath really did the trick. They take the weight so the material doesn't give way. The other thing I like is the quality hardware that y'all used to attach the handles. They unclip and move right out of the way for opening. They are also nice and snug against the top when in position for hauling. The padded slips are very comfortable for my hands and the whole rig is so transportable now I don't know how I ever lived without one of your covers!! You really should consider making the work you did for me part of your standard options. It is very handy and I know that many musicians find it difficult to haul amps like mine with just that single handle provided by the manufacturer (what were they thinking?!?!). It really is a sick joke to put a lone handle on an amp that weighs as much as an AC30 or a Twin. Thanks again for a terrific product, and I'll be sure to peruse your site for my other gear needs.

Thanks, Susan! If I had known it was going in the testimonials, I would have emphasized the importance of careful measurements ? my measurements differed from what you had on file and in both cases mine turned out to be correct, which suggests to me that builders change their specs/dimensions over time. (or that previous customers weren?t so careful in their measurements?) In any event, the covers are well-built, they look great (in an understated sort of way), and they are exactly what the doctor ordered for the amps that I take out in the world.

Hi Susan - have now received the padded cover for my Bad Cat Mini amp. It's great - well made and fits beautifully. Pity no-one seems to make such a good product in United Kingdom, so I'll recommend my fellow guitarists to look at your website and have confidence in the high quality of your products.

Received the carrying case for my Diezel Columbus footswitch. I just wanted to say thank you and tell you what a perfect fit, the quality is beautiful and materials worthy to stand up to gigging during the Minnesota winter (i.e. -47degF). This is the third custom piece now that you made for me....Thanks very much for your professionalism, exceptional quality and attention to detail, and for the warm and timely customer service.

The clamshell cover for my Rivera arrived today, just in time for an out of town gig, next week. It also is a perfect fit. just like the one for the Mesa. I now have "matched" luggage for my amps, and I'm sure they will stand out in the sea of black stage equiptment, and I will be able to find them at a glance. I also noticed that I could put a small lock in the zippers, for a little extra security....I will call again...

Susan, looks like I'm loosin', loosin' my mind.......over studioslips covers! (kinda sounds like the Buckinghams doesn't it?) I received my latest covers for my Dr. Z Mini-Z head and my Fender Vibro-King yesterday. They fit perfectly. I am going to take a photo of the four and send to you. Your clamshell covers are the best for keeping my amps in good shape. Thanks for making such a great product!

The cover Studio Slips made for my Z Lux is the best cover I have ever owned and I have owned a lot. The last cover I bought from another company cost more, took longer to get to me and was not nearly the quality of this padded cover. Excellent work and service!!! thank you

That was fast! We received the cover Friday in plenty of time for the birthday present. Tried the cover out before the birthday to ensure that it fit fine and it is a great fit. Now have to put it back into the box and wait a week and a half to get it officially in front of the family. J

I've just received the dust cover for the GK cab; it fits perfectly. The measurements are spot-on and it's a lot sturdier than I thought it would be; a very nice job!

I just opened the box with my new cover in it. I cant tell you how happy I am with it! The cover fits my amp, an SWR Workingmans 15 Combo, like a glove. The quality of the workmanship is outstanding. You even put a little flap under the opening for the handle. Its just beautiful. Again, I want to compliment you for your superior customer service and attention to detail. As I mentioned, Ive NEVER bought any custom items directly online before, but your website and communications made me feel confident enough to go ahead. And Ive made a point of suggesting your company on our band Facebook page - bass player for The Curbs www.facebook.com/thecurbsband

...By the way, the cover you made for us is great--it has been outside for over 3 years in the desert sun here in Palm Springs, CA and still looks good! On the matching speaker we used a JBL "factory-made" cover and it is falling apart! Just wanted you to know.

Just wanted to tell you that I am blown away by the quality level of the Clamshell Gig Bag. The materials, stitching and fit are all first rate. I can't imagine a better cover for my Splawn Street Rod Combo amp than this one. feel like I can take it anywhere now and it's completely protected. I've already told a lot of musicians here in Portland about your company, your products and your customer service and will continue to do so.
