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 got my cover in, and it's perfect!! Best amp cover I've seen. The Mesa Boogie that I'm using this cover for weighs as much as a Toyota, and it's super easy to get in and out of, and it fits like a glove! Thanks for your help, and keep up the good work!!

I just had to let you know- not only is your product the best, your customer service was flawless through my complicated international order, Justin walked me through double checking all measurements, and to top it off- your international shipping was the best Ive ever experienced. Im an American living in Germany- its really complicated over here with the customs and duty stuff, it can really be a problem. You obviously knew what you were doing and filled out the paperwork so correctly that I was able to pick the package up at my local post office and pay the duty there- I can honestly say, that has never happened before. Normally it gets held up for many days and then I must go to a customs office 45 minutes from where I live, and then wait sometimes close to an hour for them to do all the paperwork and calculations, and THEN pay. Salt in the wound this was super easy, calculations were spot-on, and the covers fit like a dream and are super well made. I have in my Los Angeles home a bunch of vintage amps, all with Tuki covers I ordered years ago- they were really good, but yours are on another level. Ill be upgrading there when we have the chance! Just a big thanks, they are GREAT!

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...

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 received the cover for my Dr Z amp, and I must say that I am one happy customer once again! It arrived here in Australia quicker than you quoted me, and it is a perfect fit. It?s on the amp right now and it looks so good I almost don?t want to remove it to play the amp! I?ll be back for more.

I just wanted to let you know that I got home from a trip the other day and the clamshell gig bag for my Orange Tiny Terror combo amp (with the handle on the side--as we discussed on the phone, you basically made the right/handle side the top of the bag, which makes sense, since I obviously lift and carry the amp by the handle) had arrived. It's a perfect fit, and the quality of the materials and the workmanship are abundantly evident. It's exactly what I was hoping for. Well done and thanks so much!

Received the cover today for my Fender Blues Junior amp. This is the third amp cover that I've purchased from you folks, and it won't be the last. Everything about your company is spot on, from ordering and customer service to the excellent products that you produce. Kudos, and thanks!

Great job on the cover guys. This is for my Valvetech "Hayseed" 15,... it fits like a glove! Don't think you've made this particular size before... any way, the measurements I sent you worked just fine!

Fits like a glove, looks perfect with the other slips I have. Thank you again for your efforts to get things done in a timely fashion. Everyone who sees these slips are "blown away " with the quality.

Last night I slipped the cover on the speaker when I got home. The fit is nice and tight. Professional look. Now we'll see how it holds up to constant use! I will recommend your gear to anyone who asks. I'm guessing you must rely on word of mouth alot! I was impressed with the time you took to double check measurements, etc.......good stuff.

Hey Susan ? finally received the bag. It is wonderful! Great construction, perfectly fitting size, obviously much more durable and well padded than the stock case ? and lighter, to boot! It looks fantastic too and is extremely comfortable to carry by hand (the originals had rubber handles ? bad bad idea) and via the shoulder sling (well padded!). All in all I am very happy with this purchase. I?ll need to road test it a little bit, but I?m sure my initial favorable impressions will be proven true. Thank your team for me for the great work. I?ll be happy to recommend friends your way. Cheers!

Apologies for the delayed message, just wanted to say thanks for the 3 excellent covers I ordered recently. They turned out great and fit perfectly. It?s really nice to finally have these on my amps so I can cart them around without any trouble, especially the tweed covered amps. My friend Scott Hughes at Vistalux Amps is impressed and will be recommending Studio Slips to his customers.
