Re: Let's talk about DiMarzio Cliplock and similar straps
Levi's used to make a cliplock strap that was far superior to the DiMarzio one.
The little bits that stay bolted to the guitar were made from hard leather and never bent so they couldn't damage the finish.
The strap itself was also made from denser nylon and was not as bendable as DiMarzio straps are.
To me the DiMarzio straps are too soft and bend every which way a little bit to much for my linking so I've given up on them as well.
These days I use the Dunlop Lok Strap - go on any strap you like and are only 75p at my local guitar store.
