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 am writing to thank you and everyone involved with making the slip cover and getting it to us in time for Christmas. I appreciate the friendly, personal attention I was given. The cover arrived in time just as you said it would, and it fit the amp perfectly. Studio Slips was recommended to me, so I could only be hopeful that you guys knew your stuff. The proof arrived, and without question you know your stuff. My brother was overjoyed and impressed with the fine craftsmanship that went into the piece. And so now, I will gladly recommend your business to others.

I just opened the box with my new cover in it. I cant tell you how happy I am with it! The cover fits my amp, an SWR Workingmans 15 Combo, like a glove. The quality of the workmanship is outstanding. You even put a little flap under the opening for the handle. Its just beautiful. Again, I want to compliment you for your superior customer service and attention to detail. As I mentioned, Ive NEVER bought any custom items directly online before, but your website and communications made me feel confident enough to go ahead. And Ive made a point of suggesting your company on our band Facebook page - bass player for The Curbs www.facebook.com/thecurbsband

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...

You made a set of cases for my Bogner Shiva head and 2x12 cabinet about 6 years ago. I just want to say thanks. I still have the amp, and the cases are great. They have always fit just right, the zippers are holding up perfectly, and all in all I can't imagine better cases for someone that has to "carry his own". I sprung for the extra padded cases with leather bottoms, and they are worth every cent. You do excellent work, and I will buy cases from you the next time I get a new amp.

Sorry for the late input, but I've receievd the clamshell for my Bogner New Yorker a few weeks ago, and it's fantastic. Many thanks! I believe your product are still the best on this market, and you can trust me, because here in EU I've seen in the gigging world many brands/models trying to approach your design and quality, but none of what I've seen overlasted yours!

I wanted to let you know that my clamshell case arrived earlier this week and despite some of the back and forth, the case fit my Aguilar SL112 perfectly. Also, for your future reference the Aguilar TH500 bass amp head fits in the largest version of the standard front pocket. Thanks to both of you for your help and the great product. Ill be ordering another clamshell for my guitar amps; no weird orientations or requests I promise. :-)

Received the custom bag for my Fishman SA330x. It's perfect! Those extra custom pockets really came in handy. I can now take my speaker, speaker stand, mic stand, and all of my accessories in one trip. Once again, you guys rocked it!

I just had to let you know- not only is your product the best, your customer service was flawless through my complicated international order, Justin walked me through double checking all measurements, and to top it off- your international shipping was the best Ive ever experienced. Im an American living in Germany- its really complicated over here with the customs and duty stuff, it can really be a problem. You obviously knew what you were doing and filled out the paperwork so correctly that I was able to pick the package up at my local post office and pay the duty there- I can honestly say, that has never happened before. Normally it gets held up for many days and then I must go to a customs office 45 minutes from where I live, and then wait sometimes close to an hour for them to do all the paperwork and calculations, and THEN pay. Salt in the wound this was super easy, calculations were spot-on, and the covers fit like a dream and are super well made. I have in my Los Angeles home a bunch of vintage amps, all with Tuki covers I ordered years ago- they were really good, but yours are on another level. Ill be upgrading there when we have the chance! Just a big thanks, they are GREAT!

Thank you so much for the beautiful craftsmanship on the Studio Slip Cover for my Dr.Z Galaxie. It fits perfectly, just as if you had the amp there to work with. Also, thanks for the quick service. I will be showing it off this weekend, as I have 3 shows to do. Best regards, Rich

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!

The cover for the Euphonic Audio NL210 just arrived. The fit is absolutely perfect. The handle cutouts match the handles perfectly, and the cover is form-fitting but slides easily over the box. I think you can keep those dimensions for that model, I wouldn't change them a bit. Also very well made and good looking too. Thanks much for your excellent personal service and a great product.

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.
