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 want to thank you for the fantastic job on the clamshell cover for my 3 Monkeys Orangutan Combo amp. Because of the asymmetrical cabinet shape it could not have been easy but It fits as though it was sewn on the amp! Wonderful!

Thank you all so much for walking me through the order process. It was a pleasure working with you. I received the slip cover for my 3rd Power Dream Solo 4 combo amp, today. It far exceeds my expectations! The pocket on the back is huge, the double zipper is a nice surprise. I will use y'all again, should the need for a cover arise.

Thank you so much for the great Amp Covers. Studio Slips are by far the best covers I have ever owned. The clam shell covers I had you make for me fit like a glove. The zippers are smooth and have an ease of operation I have never experienced before. I have had 2 gigs with out any dings or bumps to my Dr. Z head or cabinet. You truly make an outstanding product that is well worth the money. Keep up the great job.

It’s actually Brian here (Lesley’s husband) She has just arrived back home in Wellington and gave me my slip for my Mesa Boogie MK1 Reissue and it fits perfectly. The quality is amazing and I’m seriously considering one more for my Fender 68 Custom Vibrolux Combo. Thank you for all your help and kind communication.

The excellent cover for my Greenboy cabinet arrived two days before Christmas, so it could be a present, and now it can be used at my other holiday band jobs. The cover is terrific, and I especially appreciated your special courtesy in expediting the delivery. I'll be back soon as a repeat customer of Studio Slips!

Both the clamshell cover for the Landgraff head and the second padded cover for the Clark 2x12 arrived here yesterday. They both fit perfectly and as always, are beautiful work (I especially like the way you do the zippers on the clamshells, by the way, so you don't have to struggle at all with them around the bottom or anything)... Of course, you'll be hearing from me again (unless I'm "cured" of my compulsive acquisition of amplifiers.)

...You won't be surprised to know that (my cover) fits very well on my Roland KC550. The workmanship is, also, very good. You have a new customer here. Thank you for the quick and excellent service.

Just a quick email to say thanks for the Clamshell gigbag and dust covers I ordered recently, they arrived safe 'n sound and are a perfect fit :) Very happy, the quality of your work is impeccable! Incidentally, I work for Pro Audio Supplies in Australia, national distributor for Mesa/Boogie down here. I discovered your company from a very old Dual Rectifier slip cover with your logo on it that I found in our inventory a little while back, how 'bout that! I have recommended your company to some friends (and customers) so I hope you see some orders coming your way from our neck of the woods :) I'll likely be ordering more from you too.

As a gigging musician in NYC working almost every night in a different place, lugging around gear can be a bit of a challenge. Studio Slips bags are not only light-weight and well padded, but each one I have was custom ordered to fit specific measurements and they're all perfect! I'm still using the same first bag I ordered 6 years ago and it's in amazing shape! You guys are the best!

Hi Susan, thanks for the great cover. The double-padded pocket you added was superb- maybe you should make it a standard option on those clamshells, being your top model and all? I was always worried that my pedals were going to get broken in the front pocket of my old studioslips dust cover, so it's a great option. Thanks also for getting it out to me quick. :)

I wanted to send you a quick note; the Clamshell Bag for my Vox head is perfect. The design is great, the padding is nice and heavy, and the leather bottom strips will keep everything well protected. Great product, and delivery was faster than your stated lead time. I expect to order more covers in the near future.

My cover just arrived (for AudioKinesis Changeling 1x12 Tall) and I had to tell you that if you had been here doing the measurements yourself and custom tailoring every inch of it, the fit would not have been any better! I could not be more pleased and my wife was very impressed ? she has the critical eye for tailoring when it comes to this kind of stuff. The standard padding and ?just enough ease/relief? allows for great protection and easy ?on and off? without snagging anything. Thank you both so much for working with me on this and I will definitely be recommending you to my colleagues on Talk Bass.
