so warwicks are heavy, no surprise, i'd rather grit my teeth thu the pain rather than do anything else. It's honestly not bad because I can always just adjust my strap to use different muscles and i can't complain.... so, I was talking with my italian friend the other day who said his bass teacher has the same issue. Sold his warwicks and bought a parker fly bass or whatever they're called.....but in anycase, he also has an inflatable strap made by d'addario (comes with pump and all). I could only assume it might be too flimsy to actually be comfortable, but it's something I would have to try out because reebok pumps are the coolest shoes ever..... it'd only be fair to give the bass/guitar strap the same shot. I can't find it on ebay, google, or the d'addario site... has anyone ever heard about something like this?
