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.

~Mike M., Plymouth, MN

I wanted to thank you for the great covers for my Ampeg amp and cabinets. These are by far the best slip covers I have ever experienced in my 30+ years of playing and touring. The Gig Bag was just the ticket. I'll be recommending you to all musicians I come in touch with but your covers will speak for them selves when they see them!

I just wanted to drop you a note, letting you know how pleased I am with the cover I recently received. It arrived yesterday, and it fits perfectly (thanks for asking me to confirm/adjust the measurements - a couple were slightly different from the dimensions you had on file.) It fits snugly, but not too tight as to be difficult to remove or install. Also, the optional pocket will be a welcome addition for carrying charts, notebooks, cables, etc., without tying up another hand. Thanks again for your quality product, and speedy production/shipping!

I had a minute and thought I'd share that the Carr / Rambler Amp Cover you made is the best non-playing music investment I have ever made! Fits, looks and works better than any other cover ever!

By the way, I also realized that I never wrote to thank you for the case for my Xits.... the case, as always, fits supremely well.... what a treat it is to get cases from you! They are always perfect.... you are really helping working musicians care for their prized instruments, and I'm really glad I found you....

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!

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.

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.

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 got my new clamshell cover yesterday. It fits my Dr Z Maz 18 1X12 perfectly. This is one of the finest covers I've ever seen and it completely covers the amp...like a cover should. I just ordered another one for my Dr Z 1X12 extension cab.

~Michael B., Galveston, TX

Good news! The amp is back and feeling well and the cover is a perfect fit. It is very nice and the quality is A1.

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.
