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.

I just wanted to thank you for the new cover, and how quickly you got it made and sent to me. I love it! It fits perfectly... just like the previous cover you made for me. Please don't ever retire :-)... I don't know where I'd turn to for such a quality product, made by such a nice person, that filled my need so completely the next time I need a cover. It's always a pleasure doing business with you and Studio Slips.

The cover was delivered safely. Tried it for fit and it's perfect. Quality of materials and workmanship look great so I'm sure it will hold up well under use. I'm glad I decided to give StudioSlips a try. Will be in touch for a few more covers now that I've seen your work.

Cover (clamshell) is terrific...I really like having protection on the bottom because too often I have to set an amp down on a damp sidewalk or pavement as part of load in/out at a gig.

I just received yet another perfectly made perfectly fitting amp cover. Truly impressive! As far as I'm concerned your manufacturing process is one of the best in the business.
