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.

2 years on the road with those 57 Tweed Deluxes and your padded covers still look like new ? so do the Deluxes. The clamshells on the Dr Z stuff are equally hard wearing.

I wanted to let you know the the amp cover arrived today and it is awesome. It is a perfect fit for the amp and the floorboard with plenty of room in the front pocket for cables, etc.. This completed my grab and go practice/jam rig and allowed me to get it down to two pieces/one trip for load in/out. Thanks again for all your help and the quick turnaround

Tried out the slip cover this weekend. Fits my custom combo perfectly and looks sharp! Quick processing, shipping, and outstanding service -- I couldn't be happier! Thanks again,

I feel compelled to write you both since I've spoken to both of you about 'my discovery' in finding a custom cover/ gig bag for my Fishman Loudbox. It arrived moments ago and I simply could not be happier! The bag is extremely well made, looks great, fits well and has a pocket on the rear that is big enough to hold the power cord and a few cables. If you're looking for a cover that will do great job in protecting your Loudbox and make it easier to carry around ... look no further. I had a good feeling about the way this cover would turn out after my initial conversation with Susan at Studio Slips and she really delivered!

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.

Hi Susan, I received my Venus3 amp cover yesterday and just wanted to say thanks, both for the beautiful cover and the quick delivery. The fit was perfect and it seems I could hear the amplifier purring contentedly when I tried it on! I guess I can put the oversize bath towel I had been using back into the linen closet. BTW, I found out about your business through Billy Penn's 300 Guitars Web Site. I plan to thank him also for steering me in your direction.

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.

I just received my custom amp head clam shell cover. I can not believe how fast you made it & got it to me...amazing ! & like my 1rst order, for a Marshall hand wired 20 watt head,it fits perfectly. I am so glad I found you. I used to order from Tuki, & was very happy with their products. But it was quite a few years & when I was looking for their info to get a cover for my Marshall, I stumbled across your site. The clamshell design was what sold me. It is quite brilliant, a perfect design ! Anyway, enough ass kissing ! You have a loyal customer & I’ll be recommending you to all my musician friends. Again, great job & many thanks !

Well, I had intended to write to you sooner after receiving my clamshell bag for my Bruno Special 22 shortly before Christmas, but life intervened, and work demands, etc. ate my time before now. I have to say that before I received the bag, I was a little skeptical in ordering, as the Studio Slips bag was substantially more expensive than the Tuki and D2F bags I’ve ordered in the past, and both of the other manufacturers delivered good quality, serviceable products. After opening the box and putting my amp in the Studio Slips bag, all I can say is “Wow”! There really is a tangible difference in both quality and utility between the Studio Slips bag and the competitors. The others had lower prices, but are not as good of a value in the final analysis. The Studio Slips bag, from the fit, quality of stitching, and extra protection afforded by the clamshell design, is clearly a step above the competition. The pockets on the outside and the leather strips on the bottom are additional enhancements in regards to utility and durability. I’ll definitely be ordering again from you in the future when I need the best bag/cover available. Thanks again for delivering such a great product!

This is better than I could ever have imagined. A true masterpiece. You are a very talented human being. You are amazing, I wish there was something more I could do for you … I’ll think of something I’m sure, but if you have any suggestions… Thank you so much for everything you have done for me and my equipment. I don’t want to ignore the QSC K8’s either, fit like a glove.

I have to commend you upon the durability of your padded clamshell covers of which I possess a great many as you know. Recently I purchased a cover for my daughters Fender 65R practice amplifier which was subsequently exposed to a conflagration within her home that destroyed the interior of the domicile. The amp with cover was in a rear bedroom amidst a number of other items that were severely damaged. Several items in near proximity, such as a Guitar Hero drum set, were destroyed however the amplifier and its cover survived unscathed. While all about was a total loss, your cover fully protected the amplifier within and was itself undamaged! A machine washing and air drying removed all smoke residue from the cover and both were thence as good as new! Your covers are the finest I have ever encountered; in short, they are INCREDIBLE!

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!
