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.

My Clamshells just arrived and I could not be MORE PLEASED! They look great, fit perfectly and are clearly of the level of quality I was looking for to keep my gear safe! I will definitely be the envy of my bandmates and all the other musicians I work with. Thank you for your terrific craftsmanship and professionalism!

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).

Thank you so much for the great Amp Covers. Studio Slips are by far the best covers I have ever owned. The clam shell covers I had you make for me fit like a glove. The zippers are smooth and have an ease of operation I have never experienced before. I have had 2 gigs with out any dings or bumps to my Dr. Z head or cabinet. You truly make an outstanding product that is well worth the money. Keep up the great job.

I received the slips for my Fender Blues Jr. and Risen Legacy today. They look great. As I have come to expect of Studio Slips, they fit great. The flap the goes under the amp handle is a very nice touch -- great attention to the little things!! Thanks for the quick turn around.

I just wanted to let you know that I recieved my clamshell studio slips yesterday. I am very impresssed with how easy they are to use and the protection that they provide. I am sure their durable construction will give me many years of service while ensuring my 3rd Power head and cab won't be skuffed or damaged when I am lugging my gear around. I think you have a fantastic product that is innovative, well made and makes protecting your equipment simple and easy.

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!

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 received my clamshell cover for my Markbass combo this past Friday and I have to say that I am extremely pleased. The product combined with the fantastic customer experience that you provided me has convinced my that Studio Slips will be on my personal "first call" list whenever I (or my friends) need an amp cover. Well done!

As a working musician who owns many amps and likes to rotate them all on gigs in the New York area, I am steadily acquiring Studio Slips for each one -- they are the only such beautifully designed and perfectly fitting accessories I would trust to protect my valuable boutique amplifiers. The fact that each cover is custom-tailored yet turned around from measurements to finished product in such short order is truly remarkable and makes Studio Slips one of the greatest values in musical equipment ever. -- Jack Roland
