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 received my Clamshell Gig Bags, and I couldn't be happier! I had been searching for padded covers for my MarkBass Standard 104HF and Standard 151HF cabinets for quite some time. I emailed and called other companies, including one of the biggest names in the business. I was met with bewildering questions, slow response time, busy signals, and just poor customer service in general. After altering my web search, I came across Studio Slips, and have been delighted ever since. My phone conversations were extremely friendly, the turn around time was amazingly fast, and most importantly, the Gig Bags are fantastic! In fact, they've already passed their first gig test with flying colors.

Wanted to drop you a line and let you know how happy I am with the clamshell gig bag for my Victoria amp. It fits like a glove, is easy to get on and off (very smart design) and looks great. I've owned and used quite a few different amp covers in my career. I have to say that the clamshell is absolutely the best I've ever had.

I just received my new cover in the mail. It looks and fits....great! Thanks so much for your wonderful product and service. The double padding should do a fine job protecting my beloved hardwood Mesa Boogie Mark II-B from the world's hard knocks.

Just a quick note to say I got the latest order. As usual, it is made perfectly and fits like a glove. Thanks so much for making such a high quality product at a reasonable price. Every time I see fellow musicians arrive at a gig with nothing covering their gear, I send them your way

Well done on great website, your database of measurements made Studio Slips the clear winner. Buying this kind of product local (Melbourne Australia) would have been ten times harder, I cant believe how easy this has been.

Thank you so very much for the covers! They fit great!!! Also I want to thank you for sending not only the Mesa/Boogie 50 Cal Plus and extension speaker covers,but also the cover for the Roland 80XL. I didn't expect that till later. :-) Awesome job! I mentioned the covers I ordered to another musician and she told me she has them. Where have I been all this time. LOL

Hi Susan, well, who needs express mail anyway! Cover arrived today, probably the fastest delivery yet I have had from the 'States. The cover fits the little Nomad fits like a glove and is excellent quality. Many thanks to you and your colleagues for a superb service. Next time I need an amp or cabinet cover I will come straight to you (if you do not mind!).

i finally received your bag. I paid a total of 173,10 , which is just a few less than a flight case in best quality costs. So I must say, your products are quite expensive here, after shipping costs and european taxes. But.... but... what a quality!! The bag fits just perfect! It seams to protect my amp very well, even the briefcase looks and feels very sturdy. Thanks a lot for your work! I will recommend your products anywhere without a doubt. You should open a second factory here in europe. You would have no competitors at all, really. Best wishes for the new year, and thanks again,

I received my 5 covers today and I am very pleased with them. They all fit well, look attractive and will protect the cabinets from bumps and bruises. I am impressed with the quality of the work and your prompt attention to my order. In addition, I enjoyed working with you in confirming the cabinet dimensions and details of the order. Bottom line -- you and your company are first class and I will do my best to share my experiences with other musicians.

My order arrived today (2/24/16) in perfect condition. The cabinet cover fits perfectly and the opening for the handle is in the right spot. I love this padded cover. Secondly the padded case for the amp head is also a great fit. Love the padding and the pocket is also a great size for my accessories. Both will work out wonderfully for my needs. Thanks again for your cordial and professional assistance.

I just wanted to let you know that I received the amp covers (all 4) and they look great. I am very pleased with the fit and glad that I chose to upgrade to the padded version...

I was very impressed when I opened up the new briefcase-style gig bag for Rocktron MIDI Mate pedal board. I think the quality is very good, and it fits as expected. Delivery time was good too. My wife has been buying a few purses lately. So I showed her *my* new "purse". Custom-made, baby!! Looks sharp. (She just shook her head and walked away. I think she was jealous.)I'll be getting some more items from you. I have a couple of amps that need slip covers. I'm a believer in your quality now. Thanks very much!!

My clamshell bag just arrived yesterday. I put my LSS right in and it's a perfect fit, and very attractive. I almost wish I had a bag for my bag, as it will live outside the bag most of the time! I'm sure I'll be calling again as I will probably need other bags for other amps.

The clamshell arrived today. What a great design, and well made. I love it. It's almost as pretty as my swart. I've had a variety of covers made for my amps, and this clamshell is by far the best. I don't think I'll be ordering anything else in the future. Thanks (especially for the fast delivery).

I want to personally thank you on behalf of Gloria Speck, & Cass Broadview, for building me the clamshell case for my new Milkman Half & Half Amplifier Head. I received your clamshell case as a gift, that is why I am writing on their behalf. It fits just fantastic. I have never owned one of your products before, and how the ladies heard of you, I'm not sure. But anyways, just a fantastic fit, and workmanship is second to none. Again, thank you for building this fine product. Here is a link to the forum write up about my amplifier, and photos of your wonderful case. http://bb.steelguitarforum.com/viewtopic.php?t=280038
