Comfort Strapp?

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by ikickuintheballs, May 26, 2001.

  1. Yesterday I had band practice from 1pm until 9pm. I came home with my shoulder killing me from the weight of my warwick and the strap on my shoulder. Would the Comfort Strapp keep this from happening? Thanks.

    I like my comfort strapp just fine. It does seem to take out some fatigue. The only thing I don't like about it is the plastic thingies at each end, which kind of clatter on the bridge end when I put it on. No big deal, but I am going to cover them with something so they don't mar my bass.

    I have 2 basses and 2 straps. The comfort strap is on my MIM Jazz, and it IS really comfortable! I don't know about 8 hours with it, though.

    My other strap is one that I don't know the brand name of. It was much more expensive than a Comfort Strap, it's leather with some design on it, and is padded (quite well) with some cotton on the underside. I think that strap actually does a better job, and even has to hold a heavier bass (my Spector) than the Comfort Strap. You may give such a strap a try.

    BTW: I don't know how wide your strap is, but if you can find one that is wider, that'll spread out the weight of your bass more.;)
  6. yea.. good point.. I SHOULD get a nice wide strap.. I'm using the strap I have from my first bass b/c the one I use for my ergodyne doesn't really clip onto my warwick.
  7. I love my comfort strap, but I think any strap for eight hours is not going to help much.
