I was looking at the one @eric.kiser posted.
The one you post is only three times as expensive as the bass I bought yesterday. :smiley:

Having a good strap makes the difference between me being able to play and me not being able to play.

I have one twenty bucks strap, and one that’s even cheaper (it came with a bass).
My ability to play is not (yet?) limited by the cost of my straps. :laughing:

Actually, the 20 buck strap is pretty excellent. Best I’ve ever had. Wide, good padding, and does not lose its adjustment. Which, quite frankly, is all you will want from a good strap. So I ordered an identical one, but in brown, for the Cort.

Being a bad ass bass gal requires me to garnish myself in leather gear, otherwise I may lose my credentials. :wink: :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

I… don’t think you will have to worry about that happening. :smile:

@PamPurrs I hope you are certain we NEED to see you in full leather gear now, just to see your credentials :crazy_face:

My need to “see credentials” was satisfied when I saw our resident BABG in pajamas with beer.

A real badass doesn’t give a single fornicate. :sunglasses:

Yes looks like I will have to invest in a better strap also. I bought one at a store yesterday for 30 bucks but I may want to upgrade. Neck dive seems to be the biggest problem with every strap I get. I also need one that can adjust short enough so I don’t get any slack when I sit down. And minimum 3 inches wide. So what’s the consensus?

Hi @phillyball I’ve just started using a Kliq Aircell strap. Comes in various lengths. Very comfortable, tends to stay in place but can move round still.
Overall happy with it.

Thanks I’ll look into it, my last strap the shortest length is 46 inches which turned out to be too long for sitting , even though I am 6 feet tall. Bought one yesterday I can get down to about 43 inches and it’s better but I don’t think it’s specifically designed for a bass.

The short version is 38 to 44 inches.
Regular 46 to 56, and long 49 to 61, according to the Amazon ad I bought from. I went for regular, I play sitting.

Yes if I get that one I will probably go for long. Below is the one I I bought weeks ago and replaced yesterday with a shorter one I bought at a store.

@Krescht Hey how’s the strap going now? Would you recommed? Can’t seem to see the one with thicker padding though

Well, I still use it. it’s comfortable, but needs to be readjusted every now and then. There are some reviews stating that it could tear , so I wouldn’t recommend it for heavy use like gigs.
I also have a Gruvgear Solostrap (4") that is really sturdy, but 2-3 times the price of the Ibanez as well :sweat_smile:


I tend to prefer the Ibanez strap for daily practice, as it is lighter and couldn’t resolve to get the extra weight on my shoulders for now. As I practice sitting, there’s not much of a risk involved anyway :wink:

Cool, thanks for the info. I might give it a go then as I will only be using for home practice also. Gigging is a long way down the road yet :laughing:
