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.

sorry for the late feedback... the clamshell gigbag for my Koch amp head arrived a couple of weeks ago; it fits great and seems to do a good job at protecting the amp during my frequent transportations. Thanks a lot!

I received the Clamshell bag for my Bad Cat Mini Cat today, and it's great. Now I can use the amp outside of my bedroom, without stressing over it getting damaged whilst being moved around. If I spend that much on an amp I want to take care of it. Thanks for the fast international delivery too, I didn't expect to have the bag in under 2 weeks.

Your padded covers arrived today and they fit **PERFECT** (Super Champ & Vox AC-15CC)!!! Thanks for being so patient with the mathematically challenged (in other words, a guy who can't measure his own amp) guitar player that I am. I'll be sure to let everyone I know about Studio Slips on all the guitar related message boards. Thanks for your patience, great service, and amp covers that are so good they should be illegal.

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.

Susan, just got the slip covers yesterday, they're perfect, I love them, what great covers and service, thank you so much! The extra depth I factored in does allow them to fit easily over my Yamaha HS80M speakers with rear heat sink fins and AC cord. I'll add you to my list of referrals for students needing amp and gear covers. Happy holidays!

My Maverick 112 slip cover arrived the other day. It fits snug and I'm happy with the options. The strap pulled the cover tightly down and the pocket is just the right size for a chord and songbooks. I hope not to hit doorframes too often but the double paddling is good insurance. I'm also glad that the brown is a different shade from many of the less expensive ones. It looks and feels top shelf. Thanks for the great customer service.

Last night I slipped the cover on the speaker when I got home. The fit is nice and tight. Professional look. Now we'll see how it holds up to constant use! I will recommend your gear to anyone who asks. I'm guessing you must rely on word of mouth alot! I was impressed with the time you took to double check measurements, etc.......good stuff.
