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.

A bit overdue, but thank you for the recent delivery of my extra padded Pedaltrain JR case. Kicks the original manufacturer-issued case right to the curb. Outstanding build quality, wonderfully sturdy and smooth zippers and a perfect fit. I was happy to find you used the leather "pads" I added on the floor side of the clamshell case - plenty of protection there to ensure a long life. Might have wanted for more substantial "feet" on the bottom of the case (opposite/bottom end of handles), but not a big deal as for my light use, this case will surely out-last the pedal board itself by a wide margin. Well done, thank you & Happy Holidays!

My order was delivered Friday afternoon and when I got home that night, opening the box was like opening a present on Christmas Eve. The clamshell bag for the Motion Sound amp and the gig bags for the keyboard and synthesizer fit like a glove. Very impressed by the quality and workmanship! It looks like I won't be replacing these bags anytime soon.

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 received my ClamShell cover for my PRS Sweet 16 1x12 Combo the other day. All I have is one word: "WOW"! The quality and fit are superb. I'm so glad I decided to go with StudioSlips instead of my old "stand-by" (XXXX). I couldn't be happier with the craftsmanship of this beautiful work of art!! Girl, you ROCK!!!!

My friends have received their bass clarinet case covers. We three all perform with the Plano Clarinet Choir here in north Dallas. Well, they both are completely convinced that the case cover you made for me is only the beginning of what SS can do. You have two more customers for life. It's my pleasure to tell people about your company. Keep on keepin' on. You'll be receiving lots more orders from me and my music friends.

I just recently received two of your double padded slip covers for my Mesa 4x12 Recto Cabs as a gift and I am very pleased with your product. I am a guitarist in the band Onward To Olympas on Facedown Records, and these slip covers will be protecting my gear for multiple full US tours in 2010. I am looking forward to promoting your covers as I go, and I would like to personally thank you for making these great products (and please thank your husband for his awesome work on Mesa amplifiers!). As I acquire more gear, I will surely be in touch for more!

Once again top notch service the cover is great and very professionally made (of course) the follow up customer service was excellent and I got to email directly with you... where else can you talk directly to the boss ? Any one wanting a cover and on the fence about which one to purchase needs to just get a Studio Slip and then not worry about it anymore...

I received the bag/case and it looks and fits great! When I was designing and building this pedalboard I was originally concerned how I would carry and transport it as I custom built it to the dimensions I needed to hold all of my pedals. I did not think I would be able to find a case. I am so happy I found Studio Slips. Thank you for your great product and great service!

Got it today Susan, just as you promised, and its perfect. You know, doing business with you is a DELIGHT. You?ve made several items for me over the years and every one has been perfect. Not to mention how nice you are to deal with. And the cherry on top was the generous 10% discount, which I really appreciate. You?re at the TOP of my list Susan.
