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 received the slips for my Fender Blues Jr. and Risen Legacy today. They look great. As I have come to expect of Studio Slips, they fit great. The flap the goes under the amp handle is a very nice touch -- great attention to the little things!! Thanks for the quick turn around.

My 3 brown clamshell gig bags with leather strips on the bottom Are GREAT! Thank you for the quality work. The Studio Slips exceeded my expectations in beauty, fit and design, they are like custom sleeping bags for my JD Newell Fender Style amp and speaker cabinets. You should make Studio Slips Jackets so we humans can enjoy wearing such cool looking threads. I really appreciate my purchase.

I received my bags today, and I'm sooooo impressed. I'm an engineer and appreciate attention to detail and quality, and your work is amazing! Both the bag for the amp head and the one for the cabinet fit perfectly! I'm now much more relieved taking my gear in and out of cars & buildings knowing that the little bumps and knocks aren't going to ding my equipment, plus the pockets are super handy and also provide extra outside protection! Thanks again for such fine craftsmanship! The prefect compliment to my gear!

Yow! Received the clamshell bag today for my Aiken Tomcat head. When I pulled it out of the shipping envelope, my heart sank as I was sure that it was too small to fit the head. How could I have mis-measured? But no! The thing fits like the proverbial glove. Snug and firm. I couldn't be happier! Thanks for a wonderful product and really fast service!

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.
