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 wanted to thank you for the great covers for my Ampeg amp and cabinets. These are by far the best slip covers I have ever experienced in my 30+ years of playing and touring. The Gig Bag was just the ticket. I'll be recommending you to all musicians I come in touch with but your covers will speak for them selves when they see them!

Hi Susan, thanks for the great cover. The double-padded pocket you added was superb- maybe you should make it a standard option on those clamshells, being your top model and all? I was always worried that my pedals were going to get broken in the front pocket of my old studioslips dust cover, so it's a great option. Thanks also for getting it out to me quick. :)

I just wanted to say thanks for a great cover. Perfect easy to use, just what I hoped it would be. It protects my gear and I stuff my bass case in it at the gig. Thanks so much for your good work.

I just wanted to commend you on doing an amazing job on the custom covers for my amps and cabs. Now I don't have to worry about the weather, which keeps my mind focused on the important stuff. The music! I will highly recommend Studio Slip to anyone I encounter who is looking at protecting their valuable possessions. A zillion thanks & All the Best Susan.

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.

Susan, just received the slipcase for my shiva right as I was walking out the door with my amp for a gig tonight. Fits perfectly, great build quality. Thank you very much. I will definitely be ordering up another case for a cab very soon.

Got my brown Clamshell cover on 10/23/2009. Put it on the amp, zipped it up and worried no more about bumps and scratches during schlepping and non-schlepping/storage. I?m very glad I got the brown ? so easy to tell which of my 12 guitar amps it is! And also glad I got the double thick padding decreases my bump and scratch worry by a factor of 2! I can already tell the leather pads on the bottom were a good choice. I have Tuki covers for all my other amps. I didn?t hear about Studio Slips till I got my brand new Dr. Z amp ? from the link on his website. I prefer the zippers on your covers to the very loud ripping noises of the Tuki?s Velcro.

Good news! The amp is back and feeling well and the cover is a perfect fit. It is very nice and the quality is A1.

The cover for my Allen Sweet Spot arrived today. It is very well made and fits perfectly! Many years from now, it will still be protecting my amp. Thanks for producing a great product!

The clamshell cover for my Rivera arrived today, just in time for an out of town gig, next week. It also is a perfect fit. just like the one for the Mesa. I now have "matched" luggage for my amps, and I'm sure they will stand out in the sea of black stage equiptment, and I will be able to find them at a glance. I also noticed that I could put a small lock in the zippers, for a little extra security....I will call again...
