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.

It's bin a while ago but I was on a Holliday. I want to thank you for your superior craftsmanship and I'm not overreacting here. The vibebag you made fits like a glove and is well protected to. Even the keyboard X-stand fits in the compartment! And the back-straps for carrying are fine as well.

Congratulations on the 300 Guitars spotlight. It is always just a pleasure to know about a super quality product . A person might say, Well, this is just a commodity. However, the pursuit of excellence in any human endeavor is evolutionary. My deciding factor in purchasing my Fender cover from Studio Slips was exactly as you said, the notion that foam would be rigid. And, good to see that YOU and Studio Slips got the recognition!

Sorry it has taken me a few days to get back to you about my custom cover. I received it on time last week and I am REALLY impressed with the job y'all did! The hauling handles work perfectly. Now, all I have to do is zip my amp up in the case, and pick it up like an AC30. Running those webbing straps around underneath really did the trick. They take the weight so the material doesn't give way. The other thing I like is the quality hardware that y'all used to attach the handles. They unclip and move right out of the way for opening. They are also nice and snug against the top when in position for hauling. The padded slips are very comfortable for my hands and the whole rig is so transportable now I don't know how I ever lived without one of your covers!! You really should consider making the work you did for me part of your standard options. It is very handy and I know that many musicians find it difficult to haul amps like mine with just that single handle provided by the manufacturer (what were they thinking?!?!). It really is a sick joke to put a lone handle on an amp that weighs as much as an AC30 or a Twin. Thanks again for a terrific product, and I'll be sure to peruse your site for my other gear needs.

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 =)

I forgot to email and tell you how great the cover you made fits my pedalboard. Now I can transport the board with all my pedals neatly configured on it, and everything's the same when I open it back up. I'm very impressed with your attention to detail. If I, or anyone I know needs a cover for any type of gear, you'll definitely hear from me again. Thanks so much.
