    Best Bass Guitar strap you will ever own.

    When I've played my bass (a fairly heavy instrument) the strap presses in at the base of my neck and has actually caused discomfort with every other strap I've tried until this one. Sweetwater's bass strap is made of good quality, wide and thick leather. Along with the padded material on the inside, the strap will not cave-in in the center; sinking into your shoulder and neck muscles. It is well designed for aesthetics as well as functionality. I highly recommend this strap. It will last you a life time!

    One to rule them all!

    I, like some other people I'm sure, have a pretty descent amount of extra straps in the search of the one! This one for myself is the best in comfort, adjustability, and all over craftsmanship. The thickness of the padding is superior over the rest I own. The leather and stitching is beautiful. The picture is deceiving though, it's a gray and not brown on the padding part. Which for myself is a better matchup for any color bass. Try one out and see if you too can end the search!

    Outstanding strap maybe the best I've used

    This strap combines several elements I've never found in one strap before
    1) It's well built, the leather is good quality as is the hardware. While the strap is hardy, the leather is soft and pliable.
    2) Padded shoulder strap, which is just the right width
    3) The ring mount on the back of the strap allows a lot of natural movement without having the crease the strap
    4) An actual slider adjustment that can be moved. Most premium straps use a threaded hole that requires taking the strap apart to adjust.
    5) The strap narrows as it comes down your back and won't interfere with your right forearm when playing (this is a major issue for most wide straps.

    Overall this gets a 9.8 out of 10. THe only thing I would improve would be to cover the hardware with a rubberized style coating to prevent instrument scratches if you want to leave the strap on the instrument in a gig bag.

    Excellent Strap for Heavier Instruments

    To begin, I highly recommend this LM X-CLef Worn Leather Bass Strap to anyone who plays a heavy bass and/or wears their bass up high. I play a Peavey T-40 model bass, which is a bit heavier than the average bass, so I need the quality padding and durability that this strap provides. It has made a HUGE difference in how the weight impacts my shoulder and back. It's also sturdy and has not been stretched out by the weight, which has happened with other straps that I have used. To those who wear the bass lower, this might not be an advisable strap because LM Products specialize in shorter straps. I play slap bass with the upward thumb position, so I need my bass higher regardless of the weight, so it's perfect for me in all ways. The price is reasonable for the quality, which was noticeable right away both in the quality of leather and manufacturing as well in how it supported the weight of my bass and reduced the strain on my body.

    Surprisingly great.

    Been using gel straps for years due to playing a heavy bass but last week the gel strap broke in the middle of playing. I searched for a new strap, found this and gave it a shot. It shipped out super fast and I was able to test drive it last night at a casino gig. What a difference! It's super comfortable and made my job much easier last night. I highly recommend it. If you don't play with your bass too low and you are looking for something that will be comfy all night, give this a try

    Most Comfortable Bass Strap

    At first I wasn't sure how I would enjoy the thick padding on the shoulder with a thin leather across my back but after a couple weeks with this product it is the most comfortable bass strap I have ever owned and highly recommend getting one. Weather its a long practice session or if you're playing a set it's a noticeable difference!

    Bass strap

    This strap has a high level of craftsmanship and is very comfortable. Adjustment was simple and even at 6'4" I still didn't have to extend it to it's full length. From date of my order to arrival at my house was about four days. Well worth the price I paid. Thanks Sweetwater!

    Seems a nice strap, padding is great on the shoulder. A little short for my tastes but completely usable.

    Oh Yes

    Love it. My old shoulders need a lot of help holding the bass. The look and style are just what I was looking for.

    Great quality, comfortable, a little short

    Leather is stiff enough to hold your instrument well, but pliable enough for use. Quality of materials and workmanship are great, and the width of the strap and pad provide extra comfort when playing my six string. Did not fix my neck-dive problem as well as I wished, but still helps.

    A little short for my preference, so be certain to measure the strap's length against your ideal before ordering.

    Amazing quality but fell short for my size

    After reading countless reviews about straps and proper weight distribution, I settled on and this along with ordering my instrument. It is brilliantly crafted and felt great until setting it up so that standing and sitting height were the same.

    I found that after proper adjustment the steel ring the joins the shoulder pad and strap would shift into my shoulder blades due to my fretting hand traveling along the neck during practice. I've tried adjusting it multiple times and have come to the conclusion that in my case the shoulder pad needs to be longer or perhaps the leather looping method may solve it.

    Really nice and comfortable, sized for elves.

    Really attractive, quality strap. I love the slip adjustment vs. a traditional woven loop. It is super short however. I'm 5'8" and hang my bass at about my waist and at full length the padding is barely touching my shoulder. If I suck it up to play at my chest it's really comfortable. Unfortunately, I don't play up here so I had to return it. Thanks for making this process simple guys.

    okay, I guess

    The strap seems to be high quality leather, so that's good. I also like the bass clef inlay. The problem is the padded portion of the strap is just too short. It goes over your shoulder which is the primary benefit, but there is a buckle right after the padding that falls in the between my shoulder blades, in the "small" of my back. Actually it's quite irritating. The manufacturer cut short on the material for padding, making a nice strap mediocre at best.

    I guess I get what I paid for, as the strap was on sale. Go figure
