Bass strap shoulder pad

Post by kat888 » 11 Jun 2018, 12:51

I have a 50mm wide polypropylene strap which is a bit slippy. Something like one of those rubberised shoulder pad things you get on bags and briefcases might help. Any know where I might find one?

But for me, I’d go Mono or a 5” wide leather padded strap.

A wider non slippy strap would probably emanate fiddling when the pad wasn’t in quite the right place.

You could hit up the local Op Shop & see if there's a bag with what you're after. You even get to try it out before you buy it.

Those look great. 30cm long x 8cm (3.2") wide.

But please DON’t eat it even though their description says “Kindly note: the material itself has some flavor, it is normal” :rolf:

Try this, I got one, and it grips to you but let's the strap slide through it

Cheers all. That squid looks like it might do the job. The strap is Planet Waves also as it happens.
