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.

Received the carrying case for my Diezel Columbus footswitch. I just wanted to say thank you and tell you what a perfect fit, the quality is beautiful and materials worthy to stand up to gigging during the Minnesota winter (i.e. -47degF). This is the third custom piece now that you made for me....Thanks very much for your professionalism, exceptional quality and attention to detail, and for the warm and timely customer service.

I received my Studio Slip today, for my TC Electronic G System. It fits like a glove. Great quality too. Thank you from Ashley (Adelaide, South Australia). No more heavy road case required. I will be ordering more Studio Slips for my 65amps Lil' Elvis soon.

Hello from Nashville... The slips are holding up great. We have been on the road for about 3 weeks. We have been to Kentucky, Ohio, West Virginia, and of course here in Tennessee. I have not had a single problem. What an outstanding product and a great American Company. We are going to be entering the studio to record a full length CD. When it is done I will send you one.

Thought I'd let ya know I got the Passport cover today and it fits perfect. A little lose, but it makes it easier to put on and take off. No more clear plastic bag to protect from dust, haha!!

Susan the clamshell just arrived for my Victoria Silver Sonic and I could not be more impressed with the quality, craftsmanship and feel. Let me also remind you that this is the first cover you have made for the Silver Sonic and it fits perfectly! Kudos to you and Victoria for getting the dimensions spot on!. Thank you for making a quality product to protect my expensive amplifier. It's obvious you want your customers to be 110% satisfied.

The package arrived at my house in Alameda today. It fits the amp perfectly! The case is padded enough for protection, but still light enough to carry. There's enough room to put a little bit of bubble wrap to protect it during my travels. Thanks again! I will be sure to recommend you to people I know.

Got your slips and they are a perfect fit. The printer case is outstanding. I have forwarded your info to Citizen and some of my counterparts in the industry who will be buying the same printer for the same applications I have. I expect you?ll see more business from them.

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.

I just wanted to drop you a quick note to let you know how much I appreciate your product. The quality is outstanding and it fits my keyboard like a glove. Below are pictures of your gig bag compared to another brand's version of a "61 key slim" gig bag. There is just no comparison.

Just wanted to thank you and your company for providing a quality product. The one I just ordered is my third from you. I get your non padded dust covers because they fit so well. I put them over my amps and cabs inside their road cases, yes that seems like over kill, but your covers stop the amps and cabs from being scuffed by the inside of the road cases and they look great on stage with the covers on before we play. I will be back as soon as I get more gear.

I received the bag/case and it looks and fits great! When I was designing and building this pedalboard I was originally concerned how I would carry and transport it as I custom built it to the dimensions I needed to hold all of my pedals. I did not think I would be able to find a case. I am so happy I found Studio Slips. Thank you for your great product and great service!

Just want to say that the Cabinet cover is awesome!

Thanks, Susan! If I had known it was going in the testimonials, I would have emphasized the importance of careful measurements ? my measurements differed from what you had on file and in both cases mine turned out to be correct, which suggests to me that builders change their specs/dimensions over time. (or that previous customers weren?t so careful in their measurements?) In any event, the covers are well-built, they look great (in an understated sort of way), and they are exactly what the doctor ordered for the amps that I take out in the world.

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!

I received my amp cover and it's great! It fits perfectly and looks fantastic. I love having the pocket in the back to carry an extra cable and the channel switching pedal for my Boogie. The brown canvas looks great with the cream colored vinyl and cocoa color grill.

I received your amp cover for my Matchless DC-30. I used the cover last weekend going for the jam with my mates in the studio. I am very glad that I order this beautiful amp cover and I will value it for long time. Just wanted to say thank you and I planning to order another cover for my modified Fender Super Champ one day.

I just wanted to drop you a note, letting you know how pleased I am with the cover I recently received. It arrived yesterday, and it fits perfectly (thanks for asking me to confirm/adjust the measurements - a couple were slightly different from the dimensions you had on file.) It fits snugly, but not too tight as to be difficult to remove or install. Also, the optional pocket will be a welcome addition for carrying charts, notebooks, cables, etc., without tying up another hand. Thanks again for your quality product, and speedy production/shipping!

Just got the covers, thanks, they are great! Especially the brown ones really match the tweed deluxes perfectly! Thanks again for all your great help and service

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!

The custom cover you made for my Smith Audio (odd shaped cabinet) is a welcome addition. Due to the position of the handles, it is now quite easy to load and unload. I also like the way you did the zippers. As I expected, leaving the majority of the choices up to you worked out best. GREAT JOB, EXCELLENT COMMUNICATION, VERY GOOD PRICING
