I'm wondering how much effect strap style, quality or size has on how well a bass balances?
I struggle with having to hold my headstock up, i wear my bass fairly high, and its very comfortable, but i spend energy supporting the neck, and it directly effects the freedom of my left hand. I have always used a cheapo fender strap. I have always had this issue with all basses, Fender J, P and J5 currently. Is it a bass issue?
Should i be investing in a wider, leather, possibly padded strap? Maybe one with diamonds?
Appreciate the opinions in advance.
