    yamaha strap aye? sound sweet, post a link?
  6. I've got a few of these vintage straps (the lavenderish one in the attached photo is on my white bass)

    I've got a Fender Deluxe Leather Tweed Strap (the Mrs' got it for me for my b'day... it's on my fretless 6)

    and a 2.5" black leather I bought in the mid 80s.

    I want the Talkbass strap, but I HATE wide straps

    I used to use comfort straps and had problems with my shoulder being sore. I got a wide Levy's strap from Guitar Center. No more problems.

    I use one of these, and it's just right.

    I would like one of those TB ones though.

    It really depends what you are doing. I use comfort straps if i'm not jumping up and down with a bass. In my last band we had a lot of "Choreography" which made the show fun, but it's hard to do if the strap moves with you, so having something with a lot of support, but doesn't move is important too. I've been curious to try one of these out. Brooklyn Gear

    Some of the Planet wave ones look nice too

    The main thing that scares me a bit about the Moody's is the price. I realize they are the end all/be all of straps, but spending $97 + s&h on a strap scares me a bit. E.g. for that price-i can get 2 Levy's M6s [what i currently use]. However, I am really tempted to give the Moody's a try.....i have "left over" graduation money. So my response is: if you have the money-get the Moody's if not, get a Levy's. [assuming you want a wide leather bass strap]. That's all

    edit: FWIW, 4 years ago when i bought my M6 i believe it was $38 shipped for BassNW.

    I love the Planet Waves straps with the sliding pad, they are simply awesome. They can get over 60" and you can buy 8 of them for the price of ONE Moody :bag:

    I'd love to have a Moody though..as soon as I have $120 to burn....

    I have a Comfort Strapp and it's great, not to expensive either.

    I need a SHORT strap, i like wearing my bass at chest-tummy level, not metal style at your knees, like many straps are made for.. and id like one with soft material inside, like a cushioning effect :p what would you recommend?

    I use a Slap Strap from SlapRing.com
    They are excellent straps, very comfortable. I can play all night with this strap on my Jazz. My other strap is a 4" wide Levy's. The Comfort Strapp is OK but not great.

    You can practically adjust any guitar/bass strap to that liking, the problem is finding a good padding for the strap.
