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.

Got the cover Monday - very nice! But then, I expected that after learning my Milkman covers were made by you. Thanks, Susan!

Hey Susan ? finally received the bag. It is wonderful! Great construction, perfectly fitting size, obviously much more durable and well padded than the stock case ? and lighter, to boot! It looks fantastic too and is extremely comfortable to carry by hand (the originals had rubber handles ? bad bad idea) and via the shoulder sling (well padded!). All in all I am very happy with this purchase. I?ll need to road test it a little bit, but I?m sure my initial favorable impressions will be proven true. Thank your team for me for the great work. I?ll be happy to recommend friends your way. Cheers!

I just received my padded cover for my Suhr 1x12 cabinet. When I ordered I had tweaked your measurements as my cabinet dimensions were slightly different. Anyway an absolute perfect fit. Also, the cover quality and construction is great. You have a top notch product. I will not hesitate to recommend your company to anyone I talk to that needs covers and will be ordering from you again when the need arises.

The excellent cover for my Greenboy cabinet arrived two days before Christmas, so it could be a present, and now it can be used at my other holiday band jobs. The cover is terrific, and I especially appreciated your special courtesy in expediting the delivery. I'll be back soon as a repeat customer of Studio Slips!

I received the amp cover today. It was a perfect fit. It is even better that I expected and look forward to ordering a few more down the road for my other amp purchases. Thanks for everything, it is better than the Kangaroo cover I got used on ebay. I could have gotten yours new for the price of the used one.

My slip got here today. Boy howdy, that's a nice piece of work! Like a second skin on that amp... Thanks for such a speedy turnaround. You will be hearing from me again in the near future.

Susan, the cover arrived and it fits perfectly. A great cover for my Dr. Z! Love it!

~Brad N., Ham Lake, MN

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.

Hey Susan the slip for the Swart arrived today. Fits perfectly. I love the logo patch. Now all my other (Studio) slips look bootleged. Thanks for keeping all my amps safe and sound. Till the next one,

The covers just arrived and they look fantastic. I am so glad I decided on the padded for both amps. FYI. I got the additional pocket for the Marshall Class 5 amp because that combo amp has an enclosed cabinet in the rear. The power cord plugs into the back, but there is no place to store the cord inside once you are not using it. I would suggest you recommend anyone else buying covers for a Class 5 to get the pocket. Thanks again - you guys are the best!! God bless-

Just a quick note to say thanks for the recent amp covers I purchased. These are the nicest covers I've seen in my 35+ years in the music business. They both fit perfectly and the workmanship is outstanding.

Sorry I haven't emailed sooner but I just got in late last night from tour and finally saw the covers for my avatar cab and fender reverb. Just wanted to tell you that they look gorgeous and the weird handle measurement on the reverb unit was dead on. Fits like a glove! Thanks so much for getting these out to me and I look forward to ordering more in the future as my gear collections seems to always be growing. GREAT covers!

Just wanted to let you know that I received the cover for my Vox AC50 head today. The two bonded instantly and appear to be made for each other. As Bogey says to Claude Rains at the end of "Casablanca," "I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship." Thanks again for a great product, great service, and great email!

I received these yesterday and they are magnificent - sturdy, quality feel, fit perfectly, and are beautiful. My oldest amp (1959 Fender Tremolux) is especially grateful for its first good cover! Makes me kick myself that I didn't order covers for my other three amps -- but that will have to wait a little bit :( I'm so happy I ordered these from you -- they're great! (And I especially like the brown).

The cover arrived today - it slipped over the speaker perfectly!! This is my fourth cover that I have had you make. All of them, without exception, have been spot-on perfect in fit, in protection, and in just plain looking good! And, of the amps/speakers I have sold, not one buyer has said that he didnt want the cover. Thank you for your wonderful work.
