Favorite Strap?

I feel like I've tried a bunch of straps, but i think my favorite are the Joe Satriani planet waves straps. Comfy and supportive, cool designs, and DONT COME OFF. Never needed a strap lock with them.

My RFR came with a set of dimarzio strap locks, and I like the functionality, but I dont think they are very comfy.

Tried Levy's, not a fan.

heck yeah, they work great! They just need more comfort! I wish they'd be a little wider and a little more padding instead of a seat belt-ish thing goin across my shoulder .... I may have to do some fancy sewing here soon...

Re: Favorite Strap?

You can get wider cliplocks I believe. Might want to double check on the dimarzio site.

Re: Favorite Strap?

I use a standard leather strap from a big local music store. Noting fancy, but it does what it's supposed to.

Re: Favorite Strap?

Don't like cliploks. Not comfortable for me.

I am liking Levi's at the moment.

I mostly kit out my guitars with straploks though.

Re: Favorite Strap?

mine is Ibanez GS601LG, pretty discrete and very comfortable, does not generate sweat even if played extensively. Never tried anything else ecepted an old Ibanez strap in nylon, with has been bought in 1995

Re: Favorite Strap?

Levy's for comfort and DiMarzio cliplocks for security. The security aspect usually wins out

Re: Favorite Strap?

Levy's are nice, wider is better when it comes to comfort. I also like the Satch straps - they match my JS but are also quite comfy and work well. It's true that they never come off, which can be a pain trying to put my guitar in its form fitting case....

Re: Favorite Strap?

Any leather strap with Schaller strap locks.

Why? No way you are gonna beat a leather strap with schaller locks, you can easy throw your guitar around your neck with safety. No way your guitar is gonna go to the ground, you need to broke it first lol


Dimarzio straps... hmmm I don't trust in that plastic clip to remove the strap. A little push and your guitar is out. And if you try to do that "malmsteen trick", maybe you are gonna go to the limit with that strap...
I like dimarzio pickups, cables and some hardware for guitars... but NOT their straps.
