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 covers for the DAS Avant 15A and I must say, I am VERY IMPRESSED. They could not possibly fit better. Every dimension is absolutely perfect and they fit like a glove -- snug, but not too tight -- just perfect. Thank you so much and I wish you the happiest holiday season ever.

The cover arrived a day early much to my surprise and delight. It fits perfectly and is premium quality to be sure. This won?t be the last time I order from you. I had some experience with your competitors in the past and there is simply no comparison, yours is a superior product. I?ll make sure everybody that checks out the Brown Sugar also checks out the cover.

Just wanted to say thank you so much for the cover for my amp. You did a beautiful job, I received it on Friday and it fits like a charm. I little baggy around the little amp part on top (as expected), but will work perfectly to preserve my investment. I can actually figure out a way to effectively use that empty space by storing patch cords and other small accessories in that area if needed. Really glad I found you on the net. Will gladly refer others to you if the occasion arises.

Susan, just received the slipcase for my shiva right as I was walking out the door with my amp for a gig tonight. Fits perfectly, great build quality. Thank you very much. I will definitely be ordering up another case for a cab very soon.

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.

My clamshell bag arrived today. All is well, fits perfect! Thank you so much once again for your really prompt service; one week from ordering it, to receipt in Germany; that must be a new record yes? So nice to have one of your great products protecting my investment.

I received the amp cover today and was very pleasantly surprised! The material was much tougher than I thought it would be from the pictures and the foam was nice and thick, as well. It fit absolutely perfectly and everything lined up where it should. If only you made clothes! Thanks for the great job and my amp thanks you, too...

I cannot say enough good things about your products and their quality. It gives me a lot of assurance knowing that my gear is protected off stage. Without being vein, I also appreciate the fact that your covers look great and make my gear look equally as professional packed as it is on stage!.

The covers arrived today in fine condition. Best of all, they all fit excellently! So your new pattern numbers 8653 and 8654 are accurate and your older number 7100 works just as well. The quality is excellent, too. Thanks for the custom pockets, quick response time, and all around great products. I'll be glad to recommend you to my musician acquaintances and friends, and I'll be back for more as my needs dictate.

I feel compelled to write you both since I've spoken to both of you about 'my discovery' in finding a custom cover/ gig bag for my Fishman Loudbox. It arrived moments ago and I simply could not be happier! The bag is extremely well made, looks great, fits well and has a pocket on the rear that is big enough to hold the power cord and a few cables. If you're looking for a cover that will do great job in protecting your Loudbox and make it easier to carry around ... look no further. I had a good feeling about the way this cover would turn out after my initial conversation with Susan at Studio Slips and she really delivered!

I have the best dressed gear anywhere thanks to the perfect fit and fair price of Studio Slips. Proprietor Susan B. is the best at her craft and always goes the extra mile to ensure a customer smile. I'm about to order very hard-to-find covers for a pair of Tapco 6925 speaker columns. I'm impressed that SS already has the measurements in their data base, so all have to do is order. I'm now in the Austin, Texas area, so my gear gets much more use. But, it never ages thanks to the quality and form fit of Studio Slips. As long as I can hold a guitar and sing a note, my stuff will never see a naked day with Studio Slips. Fred M., Deep in the Heart of Texas

Just want to thank you for one of the best products I have ever purchased. My Clamshell bag has been flawless; sturdy, quick to unpack and pack and I just love it. I have several road cases that are now likely to sit in storage due to the great convenience your product delivers. Thank you again.

I just got back from Japan - where among other things I got to carry my little Gallien Krueger amp around in the beautiful case you made for it and shipped to my friends house there last year. Thank you so much. It was really quite elegant. well done.

Just wanted to let you know that the amp cover is awesome! PERFECT fit and the quality is excellent. Now I don't have to worry about my amp getting dinged up when my band goes on short tours. Thanks SO much for the quick turnaround and the friendly e-mails. I'll definitely recommend you to others and, once I have some extra money, will get covers for my other amps.
