    Needed a nice wide strap for my heavy Warmoth Wide 5, and ran across these on Amazon. Usually run $80-90, nut the black ones are on sale from a couple different vendors for $45.

    Mine just came in yesterday, and this is the nicest strap I've ever owned, especially for heavy basses! Only downside is that the leather and padding is so thick it's tough to get Dunlop strap locks on...

    Yeah, bought one of these last time it was on sale. Great strap. I agree though, hard to get the Dunlops on. I tried a few ways but didn't succeed. How did you do it?

    On the small end, it just took a lot of fiddling and squeezing. On the big end, I still haven't entirely gotten it--just put the clip on the mechanism without the flat circular piece, and trusted that the strap hole was tight enough that it wouldn't slip through. Will try shaving a little bit of the leather around the hole to give it a little more clearance when I get a chance...

    I have one of these and I love it. I managed to get straplocks on it but I don't think I'd do that again.

    I would probably have left them off if the bass I bought it for didn't have the inset strap locks with no button!
