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.

Many thanks for the cover; it fits perfectly. Like Boogie, Hamer guitars and Moody straps, your self-made business makes me proud to be an American. Call me an ol' softie but, to me, artistry, quality, service and the commitment to "get it right" really means a lot. It's touching to see that someone would CARE so much...that's cool.

I got my new clamshell cover yesterday. It fits my Dr Z Maz 18 1X12 perfectly. This is one of the finest covers I've ever seen and it completely covers the amp...like a cover should. I just ordered another one for my Dr Z 1X12 extension cab.

Hi Susan - have now received the padded cover for my Bad Cat Mini amp. It's great - well made and fits beautifully. Pity no-one seems to make such a good product in United Kingdom, so I'll recommend my fellow guitarists to look at your website and have confidence in the high quality of your products.

Thanks, Susan! If I had known it was going in the testimonials, I would have emphasized the importance of careful measurements ? my measurements differed from what you had on file and in both cases mine turned out to be correct, which suggests to me that builders change their specs/dimensions over time. (or that previous customers weren?t so careful in their measurements?) In any event, the covers are well-built, they look great (in an understated sort of way), and they are exactly what the doctor ordered for the amps that I take out in the world.

2 years on the road with those 57 Tweed Deluxes and your padded covers still look like new ? so do the Deluxes. The clamshells on the Dr Z stuff are equally hard wearing.

I have been traveling over the past couple of weeks and haven't take the time to write to you. I wanted to let you know that I received and am VERY pleased with the padded slip cover for my Genz-Benz and two dust covers for the Rolands you made for me! They all fit very well and look great! I will certainly be a return customer when the need arises and refer you to others in the market for one of your products. It has been a pleasure working with you.

You make the absolute best cover made for an amp by far Susan., it fits like a glove, handle slot and all. We did an excellent job with the via telephone measurements. Look forward to doing business again, thank you for a smooth and pleasant transaction, its nice to see people such as yourself, excelling in their craft, designing, creating and producing useful, functional items that make our life a little easier, and protecting our instruments of music, art and peace at the same time. Wishing you continued success, and prosperity..

I got the cover for my Ultrasound amp last week. It's very well made and it fits even better than expected. BTW, the timing was great. I'd had a few weeks off and it showed up just in time for one the busiest weeks I've had in a while. It's great to see people doing nice work and giving good service. Thanks!

You really do fantastic work and have a great company. The How To Measure video & that you confirm each order is excellent. This is my second order. My first cover is still working perfectly. It's durable and keeps my speaker protected nicely.

Wanted to let you know how much I like the amp cover. This cover offers all the protection I need and the exterior isn't showing any signs of wear. We play about 7 to 8 shows a month - club dates to concerts and just about everything in-between. This cover holds up and makes it so much easier to transport my amp. So bottom line is I'm more than satisfied with my Studio Slip. Heavy touring where equipment is getting a lot of abuse can justify road cases but for everything else, I think this is the way to go. The quality, workmanship and attention to detail is top notch. I will order again as soon as the need arises. Thanks!

I currently own a studio slips cover for my Vintage Sound amp and it is beautiful. I have owned other studio slips covers in the past and have owned Tuki, D2f and others.... The Studio Slips is , by far , the best.

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!

Just wanted to let you know that the cart cover has been a lifesaver in my practice with the ADHD kids I am treating!!!

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.
