    What is the thickest bass strap there is on the market?

    I don't know, but I have a feeling you'd really like a Comfort Strapp.
     
  3. Most people seem more interested in the width of a strap than its thickness. No doubt you have your reasons.

    Yamaha (I think...) made one with air cell in it. I have one, and it's really thick.

    Levy's MSS24 is pretty thick.

    Another vote for the Neotech Mega Strap. Most comfortable strap I've even owned ... wide, thick, perfect.

    I'm looking for a strap that is 4", or even wider... Is there a strap wider than 4"? I was looking for strap like Tim Commerford uses, since I sometimes have problems with my neck and shoulders.

    The Neotech strap looks nice, but the I saw that Levy's make a 4½" strap that looks even better.

    I'm sure everyone will laugh at this,
    but it works pretty good.,

    6-23-2.

    6-23-1.

    It will go on a wider strap.

    It will not slide up and down the strap
    like the old Gibson pad and it's much
    softer. It's also 1/10the price or less.

    It is thick where you need it, and soft,

    Ya, I already mentioned it...the MSS24. I wrote Levy's about that big huge strap Tim C used to use because I wanted one really bad, but they said it was a very limited run and they're all gone now, but they directed me to the MSS24. LOVE IT!!! Tim's using it now, and so is Les Claypool.

    i use comfort straps on all of my basses and find them very 'comfort'-able ;). they're pretty wide and have just the right amount of stretch to them.
