Why choose Studio Slips protective bags & covers?

  • FIT!
    First and foremost, Studio Slips is committed to building the best fitting protective bags and covers. With our computer aided pattern design and fabric cutting technology, we can cover the most complicated shapes and sizes and guarantee our products will fit like a glove.*
  • Materials
    We start with the highest quality, tough tear and water resistant 1000 denier nylon canvas, just like the canvas you'll find on a quality camera bag or back pack. We've chosen thick quilted fiber fill padding (click to view photo of padding) as a better way to pad and protect your gear. It protects equally as well as foam, but will never rot or crumble, and it compresses and folds up to be tucked out of the way, unlike foam that wants to spring open. We don't skimp on the details and use heavy-duty, smooth-gliding zipper and tough nylon thread to keep it all together for a cover or bag that will last a lifetime.
  • Quality
    Everyone here at Studio Slips takes pride in our products. This is no sweatshop and we believe in the old fashioned American standard of doing a day's work for a day's pay. This ethic shows in the end result. We've all seen what happens with the cheap stuff that's made offshore. It's just not a bargain if your bag rips open at the seams, handle openings, or zipper. If we do make a mistake, we'll fix it - quick, and of course, we'll pay the shipping.
  • We're not afraid to do Custom Work

  • History & Reputation
    Susan has been working in the music industry since 1980 and has been making custom padded covers for all types of equipment since 1992. Her husband Michael Bendinelli is a sound engineer and Chief Tech for Mesa Boogie. Michael is an invaluable silent partner and frequently helps with design suggestions on the best way to create a bag or cover that will be simple to use and easy to carry. We've been quietly building our reputation for quality and service over the years, while our customers come back time and again.

*Our products are guaranteed to fit the dimensions we receive from you, or to fit our dimensions verified or corrected by you, or to fit the dimensions provided by Manufactures' technical drawings which we strongly suggest you check against your cabinet.

"
Got it today, and had no problem slipping it over and around the monster amp. The fit is amazingly perfect! The coolest part is seeing the handle 2/3 of the way up the amp, and when I pick it up it balances PERFECTLY. Dude, this case is AWESOME! Thank you so much for working so hard to make this JUST RIGHT and for being so great to do business with! I'll definitely be sending other customers your way!

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...

Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you!!!! I just got home from rehearsal and the case arrived. Wow, you really blew away my expectations, the case is absolutely fabulous and fits perfectly. Thanks again for ensuring I received it before the weekend. I'm playing at a street fair, and will likely have to park some distance from where I'm playing, and the case will definitely protect my amp while it's on the cart. I really appreciate it.

Hi Susan-Just want to let you know that I am very satisfied with my new Studioslip clamshell cover that you recently made for my EBS Proline 4x10 bass cabinet. It fits absolutely perfect and in my opinion, the quality far surpasses similar covers I've encountered. The leather reinforcements on the bottom are a great add-on feature as well. I'm confident this one will last for many years to come....

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

First day out the head fell off of a cart, a slow mo fall, but none the less, it took a hit and your SLIP saved the day! No damage, no scrapes ... totally cool! Thank you, again.... and again.

Last night I took my amp cover out on a gig -- maiden voyage -- and it worked just as I'd hoped to protect my Super Champ. Perfect fit. And I'm really glad I got the rear pouch, very handy. You have an excellent product! It also feels good to deal with a small, private company. I'll certainly order again.

I have to say that I absolutely love the amplifier head cover that you made for me in June. That's why I'm back to get the matching cabinet cover. Thanks for your great work and attention to detail.

The new clamshell cover is perfect - fits like a glove! And the custom pouches in the pocket function just as envisioned, keeping the pedals out of the cords in the bottom of the pocket……..perfect! Holds all I need to pack off to a gig.

I just opened the box with my new cover in it. I can’t tell you how happy I am with it! The cover fits my amp, an SWR Workingman’s 15 Combo, like a glove. The quality of the workmanship is outstanding. You even put a little flap under the opening for the handle. It’s just beautiful. Again, I want to compliment you for your superior customer service and attention to detail. As I mentioned, I’ve NEVER bought any custom items directly online before, but your website and communications made me feel confident enough to go ahead. And I’ve made a point of suggesting your company on our band Facebook page - bass player for The Curbs www.facebook.com/thecurbsband

I received my bags today, and I'm sooooo impressed. I'm an engineer and appreciate attention to detail and quality, and your work is amazing! Both the bag for the amp head and the one for the cabinet fit perfectly! I'm now much more relieved taking my gear in and out of cars & buildings knowing that the little bumps and knocks aren't going to ding my equipment, plus the pockets are super handy and also provide extra outside protection! Thanks again for such fine craftsmanship! The prefect compliment to my gear!

I thought it would amuse you that my Studioslips covers have already paid for themselves. My jazz band was playing on an open air roof deck last night and part way through the heavens opened. Luckily I was able to quickly haul the covers over my equipment and it saved $6000 of organ equipment from getting drenched and possibly ruined.

I just now put on my new Fender Rumble V3 100 watt Dust Cover and it looks and fits just like the 500 watt Clamshell. If I get the 2x10 expansion cabinet and my wife doesn't kill or divorce me, guess whom I'm going to call to make a Clamshell; it sure ain't gonna be the Ghost Busters. The rest of the band are considering ordering some cases since seeing your products. Great job!
