    Wow, and I thought my strap for $75 (although I paid half price) was a lot of money.
    Mine's glove-soft and comes in a dozen colors or more, too.

    I have no problem paying for quality stuff. Not saying that less expensive is lesser quality.

    How do these compare to say Levy's padded straps? Even with the discounts, not particularly cheap.

    How does it compare comfort wise with the Neotech Mega Strap?

    I'm a real Stu Sutcliffe...I play with my back to the crowd so how my strap looks is very important.:cool:

    I won't pay good money for something plain. Sure, some people will, but I guess they're not the one posting all those pics of beautiful basses.

    It's a joke for Beatles fans.
    I don't really play with my back to the crowd.
    I actually have one quality designer strap and three or four cheap ones.

    I think the marketing spin they're putting on it is a bit much. The whole "Designed by bass players for bass players" thing is overplayed, at best.

    That said, it looks like a nice strap.

    You didn't hear the improvement in tone when using the strap?

    Is it just a real classy looking two-tone leather/suede strap for a premium price? I feel like I am missing something here...

    It's just a nice hand made strap. That's all

    Is it all that different from moody or eyeland? If not interested don't buy it.

    I feel like my straps from Italia look better (lots of color options), are handmade leather and are less expensive. I'd suggest those personally.

    That does look like a very nice hand-made strap. The only part I'm not a fan of is Scott's logo on the front. How much was the total with shipping?

    I have the Velvet Black strap made by RightOn! that I purchased from the TB store. I like it so much, I'm thinking of getting the smooth black one.

  19. But does it come in tort?

    I buy the same cheap (£7.99) black strap from eBay for almost all of my basses and guitars.

    Agreed, each of my basses has its own 4" Italia strap that lives in its case with it. Really comfy and great quality.
