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.

Fifteen covers and not a stitch out of place! Even the one for the Mackie (808S) head fit perfectly. My gear is very happy. Thanks again.

The cover arrived today - it slipped over the speaker perfectly!! This is my fourth cover that I have had you make. All of them, without exception, have been spot-on perfect in fit, in protection, and in just plain looking good! And, of the amps/speakers I have sold, not one buyer has said that he didnt want the cover. Thank you for your wonderful work.

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!

The amp cover for my Roland Cube 60 arrived today ? it fits like the proverbial glove. Absolutely perfect!! Looks great, too!! The side pocket is just right for the foot pedals and connecting cables for that amp, too. Can't wait to get it out on the road.

G'day Susan, The cover for my speaker box has arrived and it's a perfect fit. Thank you for the excellent work and extremely fast turn around. The cover arrived on Tuesday last week, which I would have been happy with from any Australian store. Considering you're on the other side of the planet, this is VERY impressive customer service. Thank you very much and keep up the good work!

I just picked up the clamshell gig bag from the post office. When I first set the amp in the open bag I thought, 'It's too small!' Then I realized that it was actually snugly perfect. I really couldn't ask for a better fit. Good job.

I received my Studio Slip today for my Roland Blues Cube Artist, and I have to say I'm very pleased, and very impressed! I've had other covers from other companies, but this studio slip is easily the best fitting and well constructed one yet. The stitching, the cuts, the edges - all perfect and square. I think the only mistake I made was not ordering form Studio Slips in the first place! I'll be ordering more in the future!

Studio Slips, Thank you. I get a lot of crap in the mail. A lot of my orders are disappointing. Your clamshell bag was not. It is an excellent cover for my amp. Excellent! Thank you so much for making such a great product. Matt Franco Ps - Your customer service was ridiculously patient. Thank you.

I just wanted to let you know that I just got a chance to try the cover on my Boogie and it looks awesome and fits fantastic! The handle opening is perfect! I am very pleased with your work. I will not hesitate to drop your company name when people ask me about this cool cover. I love the zippers! Nice! I hope to do business in the future with you again! Thanks again for your great personal customer service!

I have to commend you upon the durability of your padded clamshell covers of which I possess a great many as you know. Recently I purchased a cover for my daughters Fender 65R practice amplifier which was subsequently exposed to a conflagration within her home that destroyed the interior of the domicile. The amp with cover was in a rear bedroom amidst a number of other items that were severely damaged. Several items in near proximity, such as a Guitar Hero drum set, were destroyed however the amplifier and its cover survived unscathed. While all about was a total loss, your cover fully protected the amplifier within and was itself undamaged! A machine washing and air drying removed all smoke residue from the cover and both were thence as good as new! Your covers are the finest I have ever encountered; in short, they are INCREDIBLE!

The cover arrived a day early much to my surprise and delight. It fits perfectly and is premium quality to be sure. This won?t be the last time I order from you. I had some experience with your competitors in the past and there is simply no comparison, yours is a superior product. I?ll make sure everybody that checks out the Brown Sugar also checks out the cover.
