    Because of my new battle with Carpal Tunnel I am finding it necessary to wear my bass in near fusion geek position. ;)

    Does anyone know of a nicely padded, comfortable strap that will allow me to bring my bass to these altitude extremes? I need to get it pretty high for my wrist to be in a more suitalbe psition. There are millions of straps and I don't wanna spend a fortune trying to find the one.

    Thx,

    Mike

    Pherhaps the short version of Comfort Strapp suits you fine?

    Very good straps!

    #2 for the Comfort Strapp...

    ...hey, everyone that works at Bass Central uses them, that is the best endorsement I can think of. I've had mine since '96, still use the same one every time I play, still in excellent condition, so it's pretty tough as well as very comfortable.

    Yeah, I got one of those Comfort Strapps @ BC, and it is quite appropriately named.

    Just don't look down too quick, you could hurt your chin.

    Another thumbs up on the comfort strap....it's....comfortable!...goes pretty short, too (I also carry my bass high).

    Only downside for me is that the double hooks don't fit on my Stingray strap holders.

    Works great on my P-bass, tho.


    peace
