Satriani Stopped using strap locks?
I was wondering if those Planet Waves woven straps that Joe Satriani endorses have a thick or rigid enough leather button attachment piece, so you don't need strap locks?
I'm just curious because Satriani has always used some form of strap locks, and now he doesn't.
My thoughts are:
1) The planet waves straps he endorses don't really need them (even though they make a locking version of them)
2) Satriani gets so many free ones, he can just replace them all the time when they start to wear
3)He found that he doesn't run & jump around enough to really need them in the first place.
What do you think? I know its a silly topic, but I'm just curious as to why a guy who has used them for so many years quit using them...
I've never had a regular strap come off, but like to use strap locks "just in case"
