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 am very pleased with the bag you custom designed for my washboard. It has high quality material and a sturdy strap. I appreciate your excellent customer service in tracking down our post office's error. I will be back and will send others your way.

I received the covers today for my '64 Ampeg and '08 Rivera guitar amps. They fit perfectly and the workmanship is excellent! I have one more amp that is in need of a cover and I'll be ordering it soon. Thank you again for your excellent service.

...got the clamshell yesterday. It's absolutely beautiful and fits perfectly! Huge thanks, especially for getting it done so quickly for my tour!!!

I received my 4x12 cover and couldn't be happier. Seems incredibly durable and much nicer and seemingly more practical than the "foam" slip cover I looked at before deciding on yours. Thanks for the quick production and shipping.

The cover for my Matchless Lightning just arrived, fits perfectly (of course), and came just in time to protect the amp from a big rainstorm...cover arrived 10 minutes before I had to leave for the gig!

~Steve L., Portland, OR

Thanks for making perfect fitting clamshell cases for my 60's Fender and Silvertone amps! I'll be taking these amps on the road over the next few weeks touring with Brett Harris on these upcoming tour dates and they'll make appearances in the house band of a popular weekly Flash Chorus event in Durham NC in the fall (among many other endeavors). I'll be directing friends your way for sure.

The dimensions of the custom cover fit my 2015 Korg Kronos well. Instead of resting on the keys, the cover is supported by the top of the keyboard, and rests atop a series of dials on the left and right panel above the keyboard. I believe there is little to no pressure on the keys. Highly recommended.

Covers got here today and snug they are! Great work, thank you. I will contact you later for an amp that needs a cover. You earned my trust.

Wanted to let you know how much I like the amp cover. This cover offers all the protection I need and the exterior isn't showing any signs of wear. We play about 7 to 8 shows a month - club dates to concerts and just about everything in-between. This cover holds up and makes it so much easier to transport my amp. So bottom line is I'm more than satisfied with my Studio Slip. Heavy touring where equipment is getting a lot of abuse can justify road cases but for everything else, I think this is the way to go. The quality, workmanship and attention to detail is top notch. I will order again as soon as the need arises. Thanks!

I just got the two covers today, very nice, they both fit perfectly. Your service is fast, and your concern for a proper fit is impressive. I will be recommending you to anyone that needs a cover for their amplifier!

I received the custom Carvin cover that you made for me the other day. As usual it fit dead nuts, exact, right on the money (I have lost count on how many custom covers that you have made for me in the past) but every one fits perfect. Heavy duty, high quality etc. so I have to draw up another custom cover and send you the dimensions. Thanks again for another great job...

It's a perfect fit, looks great. I'll use it this weekend, it should mean less worry about loading and unloading my equipment, (especially when I am tired at the end of the evening) I think the pocket will be very useful.

Hey Susan! I realized I never had the opportunity last year to thank you for the pedal board bag and the amp cover! They're both wonderful and have held up well during the past couple tours. I love how well they're made, obviously you guys pay close attention to detail!

~Leslie S., Philadelphia PA

The covers fit perfectly - they're snug, but not too tight - the openings line up perfectly with the handles - great job - the SWR cover I have for my Goliath III cabinet is sloppy in comparison - I will definitely recommend your products.

I just received the cases for my Traynor TVM50 and MaxiMouse amps today. They all fit perfectly! I really appreciate the time and expertise put into double checking the design to ensure a perfect fit. You can now add these amps to the list of covers that you have made.

I received my new cover yesterday and it fits perfectly. Thanks for everything... I have really enjoyed talking to you over the phone, it has been a real pleasure. Studio Slips and owner Susan Bendinelli set the high mark for customer service in today's small business world. I received my beautiful padded clamshell cover for my Victoria 35310 ? but something was wrong with the zipper. "No problem," she says, "Send it back (freight paid) and I'll fix it." There turned out to be more of a problem than the zipper, but she fixed it happily with a brand new replacement! Susan is a rare person with integrity, honesty and pride in what she does ? and it shows in her products and spirit.
