Argh, this is the second bass (out of the two) I have that has been defiled by strap locks! What the?! Okay, so I use a Levy's leather strap (really comfy, btw) with Dunlop strap locks. They work great...for about a month. Then the button needs to be screwed in once a week. Then once a day. Then it just perpetually will never sit tight anymore. Argh. The absolute worst was when I decided to chance playing it during a show thinking I had it solid, and on the first song BAM! It came off and I luckily had the bass by my left hand instead of taking a major header into the stage. Duct tape saved that show. Anyway, point is, should I be looking for an alternative to regular ol' straplocks? I think it's the way the lock attaches to the button and places pressure on the top part of it...rather than say a regular strap that wraps around the button. And I'm rather active on stage (a few jumps here and there never hurt ) so I need a pretty secure solution. Any ideas? My rhythm guitar guy uses those Dimarzio ClipLok straps (see here) with a Planet Waves "The Squid" shoulder pad (see here). Anyone have experience with the Dimarzio ClipLok for bass? Just worried it might be too lightweight for bass. Whatever ideas you got are weclomed...thanks!
