Why choose Studio Slips protective bags & covers?

  • FIT!
    First and foremost, Studio Slips is committed to building the best fitting protective bags and covers. With our computer aided pattern design and fabric cutting technology, we can cover the most complicated shapes and sizes and guarantee our products will fit like a glove.*
  • Materials
    We start with the highest quality, tough tear and water resistant 1000 denier nylon canvas, just like the canvas you'll find on a quality camera bag or back pack. We've chosen thick quilted fiber fill padding (click to view photo of padding) as a better way to pad and protect your gear. It protects equally as well as foam, but will never rot or crumble, and it compresses and folds up to be tucked out of the way, unlike foam that wants to spring open. We don't skimp on the details and use heavy-duty, smooth-gliding zipper and tough nylon thread to keep it all together for a cover or bag that will last a lifetime.
  • Quality
    Everyone here at Studio Slips takes pride in our products. This is no sweatshop and we believe in the old fashioned American standard of doing a day's work for a day's pay. This ethic shows in the end result. We've all seen what happens with the cheap stuff that's made offshore. It's just not a bargain if your bag rips open at the seams, handle openings, or zipper. If we do make a mistake, we'll fix it - quick, and of course, we'll pay the shipping.

  • History & Reputation
    Susan has been working in the music industry since 1980 and has been making custom padded covers for all types of equipment since 1992. Her husband Michael Bendinelli is a sound engineer and Chief Tech for Mesa Boogie. Michael is an invaluable silent partner and frequently helps with design suggestions on the best way to create a bag or cover that will be simple to use and easy to carry. We've been quietly building our reputation for quality and service over the years, while our customers come back time and again.

*Our products are guaranteed to fit the dimensions we receive from you, or to fit our dimensions verified or corrected by you, or to fit the dimensions provided by Manufactures' technical drawings which we strongly suggest you check against your cabinet.

Thank you so much for the great Amp Covers. Studio Slips are by far the best covers I have ever owned. The clam shell covers I had you make for me fit like a glove. The zippers are smooth and have an ease of operation I have never experienced before. I have had 2 gigs with out any dings or bumps to my Dr. Z head or cabinet. You truly make an outstanding product that is well worth the money. Keep up the great job.

Just wanted to drop you a quick note. Received my cover on Monday, gigged it that evening. I'd been hesitant to shell out $100 for "just a case," but it was an expensive amp, so I figured it was worth a shot. Plus, I'd heard a LOT of great reviews of the covers on the Z forum. I kept hoping to coincide when I had cash for when you ran the sales, but it never seemed to mesh. Finally I just ordered it (it was my Father's Day present). Anyway, when I opened the box and started putting it on the amp, I was a bit nervous - the case seemed slightly too small. But after some slight adjustments, I got it in, and the case fit like glove. More than that, though, was that the case was stunning. I never thought I'd say a case was beautiful, but the sheer quality of it was amazing - the materials, the fit, the finish. My wife, who's a quilter, was really impressed, too, with how good it is. Long story short, I'm blown away. You've got a customer for life. Now I just need to save some scratch together to get cases for my Fender Pro Reverb and Dr Z 2 x 12 cab.

I recently purchased a Roland A-88 controller keyboard for use in my live setup. I wanted to protect it when transporting from home to local gigs but, since I purchased it in no small part because of its slim dimensions and relatively light weight, did not want a gig bag that was bulky and ill fitting with unnecessary pockets, wheels, etc. So I happened upon the Studio Slips website, liked what I saw and read, and contacted Susan. She was friendly, informative, and VERY specific about dimensions, double and triple checking with me and my trusty tape measure. I received the bag quite promptly, well in time for my first gig with the keyboard, and when I went to put the keyboard in I initially thought it was going to be too small. Turns out it fits absolutely perfectly without a bit of slop. Great construction, just the right amount of padding. I couldn't be more pleased! I'll never buy a stock gig bag again.

I just wanted to say that the slip cover arrived. I am very impressed, very well constructed and fits perfectly! I was amazed to see cut outs for the wheels even, I had never thought of that! Thank you again, I will mention your quality of service to anyone who asks where I got such a nice cover for the speaker cabinet!

I just received my custom amp head clam shell cover. I can not believe how fast you made it & got it to me...amazing ! & like my 1rst order, for a Marshall hand wired 20 watt head,it fits perfectly. I am so glad I found you. I used to order from Tuki, & was very happy with their products. But it was quite a few years & when I was looking for their info to get a cover for my Marshall, I stumbled across your site. The clamshell design was what sold me. It is quite brilliant, a perfect design ! Anyway, enough ass kissing ! You have a loyal customer & Iíll be recommending you to all my musician friends. Again, great job & many thanks !

Just a brief note to let you know I arrived home from Atlanta tonight, and the dust cover for the 'Reeves Custom 225' bass amp was here. The fit is absolutely flawless! Excellent attention to detail prevails throughout, and I am quite pleased. Your video tutorial helped to ensure that my measurements were properly taken with appropriate care. The finished product is the proof.

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 Ė 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.

Today the cover finally arrived! It fits snugly. I do especially like the way the handle area is covered with the small part of fabric going underneath the handle. :D So thanks for the great service!
