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.

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.

I received my amp cover and it's great! It fits perfectly and looks fantastic. I love having the pocket in the back to carry an extra cable and the channel switching pedal for my Boogie. The brown canvas looks great with the cream colored vinyl and cocoa color grill.

Once again a word of thanks for the 4th custom cover that you have made for me (it fits dead nuts, exact, right on the money as usual). Now I have to draw up the dimensions for the 5th custom cover that I need for my collection. Thank you much for these fantastic heavy duty covers. They are the absolute best......

2 years on the road with those 57 Tweed Deluxes and your padded covers still look like new ? so do the Deluxes. The clamshells on the Dr Z stuff are equally hard wearing.

The cover arrived today and it fit perfectly. For the record my stand alone reverb unit is clone from Weber (in case anyone asks you if yours fits a Weber). Also the pocket in the back is perfect for the foot switch and a couple of cords.

Just wanted to write and say thank you, once again, for providing such an awesome product. The attention to detail really shows all over. Great quality zippers, heavy duty fabric, (So glad I went with the brown, matches my retro looking amp to a tee) and most importantly, fit. The old saying "fit's like a glove" should be replaced with "Fits like a Studio Slips cover".

Hello from Texas, I recieved the padded slip today and all I can say is WOW! It fit perfect and looks great. Thanks again. Flawless workmanship. I love it. We finally cooled off here in the Panhandle even got a little rain.. Had a couple friends over and they like the slip better than my amp. What else can I say.

I ordered a cover for my Valco Comet from you a few years ago, and it has performed very well. Actually, someone had knocked my Amp off a small sill a couple of Years back, and the padding saved my Amp from any damage.

The cover arrived today. It fits like the proverbial glove. Thank you so much for your help and punctiliousness. Gotta love standardized measurement. Every time a potential ding is thwarted by your fine cover, I will turn towards California and offer a heartfelt thank you

Just wanted to thank you and your company for providing a quality product. The one I just ordered is my third from you. I get your non padded dust covers because they fit so well. I put them over my amps and cabs inside their road cases, yes that seems like over kill, but your covers stop the amps and cabs from being scuffed by the inside of the road cases and they look great on stage with the covers on before we play. I will be back as soon as I get more gear.

I received my covers this week. Just wanted to say thanks. I cant believe the quality of the work and the fit is superb. Im just sorry I didn't go the glamshell for both amps. Its just a superb design.

Today the cover finally arrived! It fits snugly. I do especially like the way the handle area is covered with the small part of fabric going underneath the handle. :D So thanks for the great service!

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....
