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.

FYI, i had a full waterbottle of ice tea empty into the front pocket of my slip cover while at a gig, with my brand new Swart amp inside...not only did the padding and material in the pocket protect my amp from ANY water damage, i stuck a towel in there and everything was soaked up and dry in minutes. You saved my amp!!!

I would like to thank you for your expert advice on the measurements of my Clamshell Gig Bags. Your link to Mesa Boogie and their hardwood custom shop was very helpful in my situation. I am very impressed by your personal touch involving the finite details of each order that is placed. That kind of service is rarely observed these days, unfortunately. The response to your covers has been very positive, and I will send all my future business your way.

It fits perfectly! I was really needing it, because I am completely in love with this amp and its so light and loud than I am taking it with me all the time: reharsals, gigs, jams or just when I practice. The bag really helps taking it with me on the shoulder and its good for a little protection (and its really beautiful in brown)

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....

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.

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...

The bag for my harmonium arrived last Friday, literally ten minutes before I was taking it to a gig! It fits perfectly, and is really what I was looking for. Well made, makes the harmonium easier to carry than that bulky, ripped up one I was using. Terrific!...

Scotland - Absolutely brilliant I sent you the measurements on 05 20 2008 and the cover arrived 1300 GMT 03 06 2008 that's great going making the cover from scratch. P.S. Fits like a glove.

i finally received your bag. I paid a total of 173,10 , which is just a few less than a flight case in best quality costs. So I must say, your products are quite expensive here, after shipping costs and european taxes. But.... but... what a quality!! The bag fits just perfect! It seams to protect my amp very well, even the briefcase looks and feels very sturdy. Thanks a lot for your work! I will recommend your products anywhere without a doubt. You should open a second factory here in europe. You would have no competitors at all, really. Best wishes for the new year, and thanks again,
