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.

I received my amp cover yesterday and it fits perfectly. As a professional engineer, I appreciate the precise design and accurate construction displayed in your covers. As a musician/artist, I appreciate the care and artisanship that goes into your final product. Even the understated Studio Slips logo adds to your amp cover?s good looks. Finally, it does my soul good to find there are still American companies that believe in the philosophy of a quality product coupled with outstanding customer service is the best way to do business. You?re my kind of philosopher!

I told you I was going to get back with you on how my clamshell gigbag is doing (Gibson Goldtone GA-30rvs). ABSOLUTELY OUTSTANDING!!! I cannot believe how much easier it is to load in and out with the clamshell vs. an amp transporter (road case). Fit and finish is top notch. I have even received many compliments from other musicians about how cool it looks. This truly is a fine, hand-crafted piece of gear. As far as durability goes...I have put it through a lot of load ins and outs over the past few weeks without a single tear in material ... Again, accolades in crafting a truly fine product. I wish the very best for you and your company in the future and will be glad to have you make me another cover/clamshell in the future (when I get another amp). Please pass my thanks on to your employees.

Yow! Received the clamshell bag today for my Aiken Tomcat head. When I pulled it out of the shipping envelope, my heart sank as I was sure that it was too small to fit the head. How could I have mis-measured? But no! The thing fits like the proverbial glove. Snug and firm. I couldn't be happier! Thanks for a wonderful product and really fast service!

The cover arrived and it looks great, just like it says on your website. I'll be getting another amp in September and hopefully you can make me a cover for that one.

I just now put on my new Fender Rumble V3 100 watt Dust Cover and it looks and fits just like the 500 watt Clamshell. If I get the 2x10 expansion cabinet and my wife doesn't kill or divorce me, guess whom I'm going to call to make a Clamshell; it sure ain't gonna be the Ghost Busters. The rest of the band are considering ordering some cases since seeing your products. Great job!

I received my 5 covers today and I am very pleased with them. They all fit well, look attractive and will protect the cabinets from bumps and bruises. I am impressed with the quality of the work and your prompt attention to my order. In addition, I enjoyed working with you in confirming the cabinet dimensions and details of the order. Bottom line -- you and your company are first class and I will do my best to share my experiences with other musicians.

The latest covers arrived today and everything fits perfectly - and just in time too as apparently our 9 month old son finds his dad's old amps irresistible! (wait 'til he finds my old motorcycle in the garage - lookout!) It's been a pleasure to deal you with and thanks for your patience in dealing with my measuring errors, etc. I hope you and your family have a happy holiday season, and that you get a nice break from work too!

Got my studio slip case for my Peavey Custom shop 212 cabinet today. Took it out of the box and put it on cabinet...and, as always, it fit like a glove!!! I cannot express my thanks and my appreciation for the quality job you do with your product. You are always my first suggestion to any on my musician friends who are looking for a slip for their equipment.
