    I'm currently using a low-tech wide leather strap. Not the greatest. Anybody really happy with theirs? Hopefully something I can buy online or is readily available in stores. Sadowsky offers one that looks reasonable.

    This has been done before. More than once methinks.

    But to answer your question.

    Erine Ball black strap.

    It does it's job.
     
  3. I use a Levy's leather strap. I think most people around here either use a Levy's, Comfort Strapp, or a regular old generic sliding strap.
     
  4. Another vote for the Levy's padded leather strap and the comfort strap here...

    I use the wide, padded Carvin straps. Love 'em.
     
  15. Fender Neoprene Bass Strap ,best strap I've ever had and have tried many ,some rather pricey too. this is very reasonably priced and just amazing how it relieves the weight ,can't really desribe how it works but it seems to have just enough of an elastic quality to it, to virtually eliminate any strain on your shoulder.

    Word. That strap is about the best I could ask for, considering that most straps are a little shy in the the length department, these long boys are great for letting me wear my bass at just the right height (controls over groin, pups at belt, tilted up, with the upper horn pointing right at my left nipple), while still feeling sturdy.

    whatever's cheap. the adjustable generic strap. Nothing fancy, just need something that will hold the bass when I stand up. Maybe I'll look into forking over cash towards something better in the future, but until I decide I don't need to buy more food, or *ahem* other stuff....the one I got'll do.
     
  20. I use a strap made by DR. It's got just as much padding as the Levy's, but it's a little stiffer at first.
