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.

Thank you so much for the rush (and the brown!) on the Louis head slipcover -- it came today and I was very happy! You rock, as you always have!!!

Sorry I haven't emailed sooner but I just got in late last night from tour and finally saw the covers for my avatar cab and fender reverb. Just wanted to tell you that they look gorgeous and the weird handle measurement on the reverb unit was dead on. Fits like a glove! Thanks so much for getting these out to me and I look forward to ordering more in the future as my gear collections seems to always be growing. GREAT covers!

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...

I've been using your clamshell cover ( the Maz18 head cover is mine, and the Route 66 cover went to my friend ) and I'm loving it! Great product! I've been recommending you to my friends, I think one friend might be ordering a cover from you soon for his Aiken amp head. Thanks for your excellent service. Kind regards ( from downunder )

I wanted to send you a quick note; the Clamshell Bag for my Vox head is perfect. The design is great, the padding is nice and heavy, and the leather bottom strips will keep everything well protected. Great product, and delivery was faster than your stated lead time. I expect to order more covers in the near future.

Thank you for your Custom Leo 212/115 cabinet covers. They fit great, I have already passed on info to the store that converted my Mark I from a combo to a head for me. He liked the idea of the Boogie cover being padded. Hope he sends some business your way. After I received the covers, I waited to get my Boogie back just to make sure everything fit, even though I knew they would. I just placed an order for for my Ampeg BA-112. I will keep passing your info along as often as possible. It is a great product.

Hello Susan, perfect fit! Very good quality, thank you!..... This also goes for both the Crate V50-112 as well as the Yorkville XM200T.

I received the slip cover for my Marshall Bluesbreaker last week. This is the 3rd cover you've made for me, and your workmanship is outstanding. I'm glad Ben Fargen turned me on to your slips, and I'll be ordering more in the near future.

Hi Susan, I received my Venus3 amp cover yesterday and just wanted to say thanks, both for the beautiful cover and the quick delivery. The fit was perfect and it seems I could hear the amplifier purring contentedly when I tried it on! I guess I can put the oversize bath towel I had been using back into the linen closet. BTW, I found out about your business through Billy Penn's 300 Guitars Web Site. I plan to thank him also for steering me in your direction.

I just wanted to thank you for making great covers for my Peavey monitors that I ordered through Juniors Music. They fit perfect and the material is awesome too. I enclosed a couple shots of one for you. Thanks again!

I received my dust cover today and was shocked. I was expecting a generic cover... It is very nice and strong with good looks. Makes the price not seem as high as when I ordered it. Only thing is it makes my other amp covers look like junk. Wish I knew about yours when I bought them.

The case cover arrived today. And, once again, you have succeeded beyond my expectations. The fit of the case cover is near perfect. The quality of materials and craftsmanship is excellent. I applaud you and your team. I even love the way you folded it for shipment so that your logo was on top! You have me as a customer for as long as you shall be in business and I continue to need high quality instrument case covers.

Just ordered another couple of amp covers. Wanted to say I've been using your covers for the last 7/8 years and they are still looking perfect after relentless gigging. And they have protected my amps wonderfully well. My 57 Tweed Deluxe still looks like new! Cheers

I was very impressed when I opened up the new briefcase-style gig bag for Rocktron MIDI Mate pedal board. I think the quality is very good, and it fits as expected. Delivery time was good too. My wife has been buying a few purses lately. So I showed her *my* new "purse". Custom-made, baby!! Looks sharp. (She just shook her head and walked away. I think she was jealous.)I'll be getting some more items from you. I have a couple of amps that need slip covers. I'm a believer in your quality now. Thanks very much!!
