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.

Just a short note to let you know that I have received the dust cover for my amp and it fits perfectly.The quality is first class, and I am really impressed. There are lots of manufacturers on the market these days that do not supply dust covers with their product, e.g. Behringer, ishman,etc.and it a hard job finding suppliers like ourself. Please keep up the good work and many thanks.

The little brown clammy arrived this afternoon and fits the Satellite like it grew there. I expected a lot from your gig but must say I have been well impressed even beyond expectations-well done.Many thanks,your work is much appreciated here.You will certainly have my business in the future and I would expect many players that see the case will also pony up to protect their gear when a road case is just too much. I feel the money was well spent and am indeed a happy camper.

The Briefcase Style Gig bag I purchased for my little Fender Acoustasonic 40 is nothing short of fabulous. Snug fit, easy to carry either by handle or shoulder strap, and has just enough room for a couple of cables in the pocket. I'm very pleased.

On Monday, I recieved my Studio Slips cover for my Fender 50th Anniversary Blues Junior and I wanted to write and thank you for your excellent and expedient service. The cover itself is fantastic, so well made and it fits my amp like a glove. The small details are fantastic, like the small piece of the cover that slides beneath the amp handle. That kind of attention to detail shows your dedication to putting out the best product available. The soft inner lining is exactly what I was looking for to protect the sunburst finish on my limited edition ash cabinet. I bought the amp largely as a collector's piece, so I wanted to treat it kindly and I can't think of a more perfect was to protect it than with your wonderful amp cover.

I received my custom gig bag for the Friedman Dirty Shirley Mini head last week and it's great. I'm very happy not just that the measurements worked out, but that the finished bag looks and feels really secure.
