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.
What People Are Saying

On Monday, I recieved my Studio Slips cover for my Fender 50th Anniversary Blues Junior and I wanted to write and thank you for your excellent and expedient service. The cover itself is fantastic, so well made and it fits my amp like a glove. The small details are fantastic, like the small piece of the cover that slides beneath the amp handle. That kind of attention to detail shows your dedication to putting out the best product available. The soft inner lining is exactly what I was looking for to protect the sunburst finish on my limited edition ash cabinet. I bought the amp largely as a collector's piece, so I wanted to treat it kindly and I can't think of a more perfect was to protect it than with your wonderful amp cover.

I *LOVE* the cover you made for my DR. Z Maz 18. It fits *PERFECTLY*!! The only downside is that I didnt find you soon enough and Im now going to have to have my amp re-tolexed (it got pretty chewed up over the years). The good news is with that cover Ill never have to worry about it again!! Great job; thank you *SO* much!!

As you know, it's been a brutal winter especially here in the Midwest. Had a gig in Wisconsin this past Sunday, so I drove up from Chicago worried about what was predicted; 12-18" of snow! Well, as it turned out what happened weather-wise instead was just horrible sleeting rain/snow and it was a mess and I started getting nervous about taking out my groovy little red leather Boogie Maverick. Got to my Mom's where I'd left my amp, and lo and behold; your studio slips cover had arrived and truly saved the day! Much better even than I'd hoped for, nice, tight fit and great padded covering- how perfect for the Perfect Storm? Anyway, it was such a nice surprise and I am so pleased.

I wanted to let you know I recieved the briefcase cover for my loudbox 100. Fits great. I had four gigs this last weekend and could just throw it over my shoulder and go. " Look ma no hands" Protects the amp and helps my tennis elbow to boot.

I received my case for my Marshall Bluesbreaker. It's awesome! I am very impressed with the fit and the quality. I know where to go for all things cases now!

~Ned C., Barrington RI

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.

Mike and Susan, I just wanted to thank you both again for being such good people to deal with. I have had a horrible time with customer service of a subwoofer manufacturer in California. Won't answer the phone, won't return voicemail messages, half-ass reads my emails, and gets a bit of an attitude when I want to clarify a point. Word of mouth is a strong point when it comes to repeat customers. That is why I play MESA/Boogie amps and own Studio Slips covers. Keep up the excellent work!

I received my Studio Slips yesterday and they are exceptional, especially the Clam Shell. They are very well made, a great fit, look great and look to have years of use in them. I shall certainly be placing further orders when the need arises.

My clamshell bag just arrived yesterday. I put my LSS right in and it's a perfect fit, and very attractive. I almost wish I had a bag for my bag, as it will live outside the bag most of the time! I'm sure I'll be calling again as I will probably need other bags for other amps.
