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.

You make the absolute best cover made for an amp by far Susan., it fits like a glove, handle slot and all. We did an excellent job with the via telephone measurements.

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 just picked up the Clamshell Gig Bag for my Fender Head from the post office. What a beautiful product, so well made and easy to use. I am extremely pleased to have found Studio Slips on the Internet. Excellent service and your quick turn-around meant I didn't have too long a wait for delivery.

Congratulations on the 300 Guitars spotlight. It is always just a pleasure to know about a super quality product . A person might say, Well, this is just a commodity. However, the pursuit of excellence in any human endeavor is evolutionary. My deciding factor in purchasing my Fender cover from Studio Slips was exactly as you said, the notion that foam would be rigid. And, good to see that YOU and Studio Slips got the recognition!

I received the StudioSlip PA cover I purchased and just wanted to say " Thank You! " It houses my Mackie SRM 150 PA perfectly! I'm impressed with the quality of workmanship and attention to detail. The PA is so unbelievably comfortable to transport now. I will definitely keep you folks in mind in the near future when I purchase a Mackie mixer and Mackie mains.
