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 wanted to thank you for the amp covers. They arrived today, fit perfectly and the workmanship is stunning! Very much appreciated. Will be ordering from you again as soon as I work out what I need covers for.

I ordered a cover for my Valco Comet from you a few years ago, and it has performed very well. Actually, someone had knocked my Amp off a small sill a couple of Years back, and the padding saved my Amp from any damage.

The cases arrived today. It's excellent! It fits well, is well-made and will give the protection the equipment needs. I wish I'd heard of your company earlier.

Just wanted to say THANKS!!! for the sweet cover that fits oh so perfectly on my Ted 'O Connell special amp. Not only is it perfect, but DAMN you're fast!!!! And as soon as everyone sees this little badboy they're all going to be calling you ;-). I also dropped your name to Alan Rosen the Manager of Bananas at Large in San Rafael ( I teach there on occasion ). I look forward to doing business with you again and spreading 'the gospel' of your great craftsmanship (or craftswomanship shall we say). Take care =)

My clamshell bag just arrived yesterday. I put my LSS right in and it's a perfect fit, and very attractive. I almost wish I had a bag for my bag, as it will live outside the bag most of the time! I'm sure I'll be calling again as I will probably need other bags for other amps.

Well done on great website, your database of measurements made Studio Slips the clear winner. Buying this kind of product local (Melbourne Australia) would have been ten times harder, I cant believe how easy this has been.

Jim & Susan, I performed the first gravity test of my VVT Fralin Model 2 - it rolled off the hand truck as I made a turn going up a ramp. It landed on the control knobs and completed a flip, ending up face down. I took it into the gig, looked it over and found not a scratch (great cover from Studio Slips), fired it up and it works fine - thanks to you and Susan!

I received a clamshell cover for my Fender Deluxe Reverb as a birthday gift from my wife. I just wanted to tell you how pleased I am with it. The fit was perfect and the build quality was beyond excellent. Thanks so much for making such a fine product! I WILL be ordering more covers from you in the very near future.

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).

Susan, I wanted to let you know that I received the Studio Slips "Padded Slip Cover" for my Ultrasound Pro250 today. I believe that you indicated that this was the first time that you made a cover for an Ultrasound Pro250. You would never know it. It fits absolutely perfectly. I am impressed. I almost went with a Tuki Cover. I'm so glad that I chose Studio Slips. From the detailed measurements that you require through your well organized website and from our communications before you began the manufacturing process, I had an instinct that you would do quality work and I was correct. It is clearly evident that both the materials and workmanship are absolutely first rate in every respect. I wanted let you know how pleased I am with my Studio Slips cover and I want to thank you very much. It's really nice when everything goes right. Thanks again!
