Cover or Gig Bag Options

- Click on an option for the description -

Padding

We use a polyester fiber fill which is quilted to soft yet tough black nylon lining (guaranteed not to bleed color). We have not seen any deterioration in our padding since we started making covers in 1992, unlike foam padding which can disintegrate in time. The photo shows the difference between single and double. The single is approximately 3/8" thick (a little less than a centimeter) and the double padding is approximately 5/8" (about 1 1/2 centimeters). Our padding feels more like a glorified moving blanket and folds up easily to store away.

Pocket

For additional storage space, we can add an external zippered pocket. Pockets can be padded or non-padded.

Bottom Closing Strap for Cover

We can add a webbed strap which is sewn to the bottom back of your cover and secures with Velcro to the front to keep it snugly in place.

Leather Strips on the bottom of Clamshell or Briefcase Gig Bag

For extra protection, we can reinforce the bottom of your bag with heavy duty leather. The strips are 1/8" thick, 5" wide, and run from front to back on both sides of the bottom of the bag.

Shoulder Pad with Shoulder Strap for Gig Bag

Can be added to Briefcase or Clamshell Gig Bags

Extra Webbing Handle on Clamshell or Briefcase Gig Bag

Sometimes it’s nice to have an extra handle or two on your Gig Bag. Available with standard handle grip or cushioned handle grip.

Standard Handle Grip or Cushioned Handle Grip

Non padded Handle Grip comes standard with Briefcase Gig Bag. (far left)


Cushioned Handle Grip is easier on your hand. (left)

Caster Openings on Clamshell or Briefcase Gig Bag

Reinforced caster openings are available for $35. Please see our measurement chart for a template to measure your casters or wheels.

Handle Openings

All openings are reinforced, so they will not fray or come apart like common bound openings. Additional openings for jacks, etc., cost only $5 each.

Back Pack Straps

Back Pack Straps can be added when appropriate. We've searched far and wide for straps that are comfortable and adjustable at the neck and waist with a front belt that clips at the chest.

What People Are Saying

As a third time repeat customer I just wanted to let you know my covers for the Carr Mini Mercury Amplifier are nothing short of perfection. The brown canvas is rather stylish and compliments the tweed exterior of the amp. I've had my regular Mercury Amp and my digital Mellotron covered with Studio Slips for a few years now and they are tough as nails. You just can't beat good lookin' and tough as nails! I'd order again in a heart beat and will refer Studio Slips to others whenever I can. Please keep up the great work and have a wonderful holiday season.

My friends have received their bass clarinet case covers. We three all perform with the Plano Clarinet Choir here in north Dallas. Well, they both are completely convinced that the case cover you made for me is only the beginning of what SS can do. You have two more customers for life. It's my pleasure to tell people about your company. Keep on keepin' on. You'll be receiving lots more orders from me and my music friends.

My name is Justin and I play guitar in the band Ellery, out of Cincinnati. I ordered one of your clamshell gigbags (in brown!) last year for my mid-70s Fender Princeton Reverb, and have been touring with it ever since. I've always been meaning to write - oh my gosh do I love this bag for my amp. It fits perfectly (!), is very protective, and looks great (I love the brown!). It really is one of my favorite things - such a perfect combo of form and function. I tell everyone about it...Thanks for your great product, it's such a blessing for what we do.

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.

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.

Cover (clamshell) is terrific...I really like having protection on the bottom because too often I have to set an amp down on a damp sidewalk or pavement as part of load in/out at a gig.
"
~Michael G., Larchmont, NY

The slip covers arrived today, and both fit snug! They should provide much needed protection to my combo amp and extension cabinet from the other gear in my band's van. Thank you very much!

My amp arrived safely to my home in Seoul, South Korea yesterday, June 29th! It was a long wait, but I felt much more assured knowing it would be protected by your Clamshell Gig Bag flying from the other side of the world. Needless to say - my amp arrived in perfect condition. Not a scratch, dent, broken tube... Just wanted express my gratitude...

Regarding amp cases, I have amp cases made for all my amps from Studio Slips. Susan Bendinelli, of Studio Slips has been outfitting all my amp case needs for over 5 years. I have fully encapsulating Studio Slips [Clamshell Gig Bag] for all my Carr products ... Studio Slips makes an excellent product that I find very functional, durable, and reasonably priced. Their customer service is excellent. Its a family business that knows amps and playing musicians needs. As a small business owner myself I value customer word-of-mouth and other small businesses helping each other out.
