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 want to thank you for the two perfect fitting covers for cabinets I thought I would never be able to cover. The covers for my two MarkBass (Traveler 102p)enclosures fit as thought they were sent to me from MarkBass. Great Quality - and the offset opening for the handle was perfectly located. Thanks again - will certainly recommend for any one looking for amp and speaker enclosures.

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.

The latest covers arrived today and everything fits perfectly - and just in time too as apparently our 9 month old son finds his dad's old amps irresistible! (wait 'til he finds my old motorcycle in the garage - lookout!) It's been a pleasure to deal you with and thanks for your patience in dealing with my measuring errors, etc. I hope you and your family have a happy holiday season, and that you get a nice break from work too!

The case for my Fender reverb looks great! Thanks so much! It's such a fragile little thing, I'm always nervous transporting it (in fact, I bought it only partially working at Guitar Center and had my dad change all the components inside to get it to work), now I don't have to worry about it so much! Thanks again!

Got my brown Clamshell cover on 10/23/2009. Put it on the amp, zipped it up and worried no more about bumps and scratches during schlepping and non-schlepping/storage. I?m very glad I got the brown ? so easy to tell which of my 12 guitar amps it is! And also glad I got the double thick padding decreases my bump and scratch worry by a factor of 2! I can already tell the leather pads on the bottom were a good choice. I have Tuki covers for all my other amps. I didn?t hear about Studio Slips till I got my brand new Dr. Z amp ? from the link on his website. I prefer the zippers on your covers to the very loud ripping noises of the Tuki?s Velcro.

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...
