What’s The Best Guitar Strap For You?

A guitar can be a big investment, as is the gear you get to go with it. Among these, a decent strap is crucial if you want to get the best from your instrument, so what’s the best type to go with?

If you’re playing live regularly or on your feet a lot, then a decent strap is an absolute must. It won’t just hold your guitar up, but it’ll provide enough comfort and stability to help you give the best in terms of your performance.

Most guitar shops should be fine with you trying one in the shop, but when buying online be aware whether you’re buying ‘long’ or ‘short’. While they’re adjustable, you don’t want to get caught out by a strap that isn’t long enough for your needs.

If you want to make sure you have a strap that can go the distance in terms of durability then materials like Sharkskin are lightweight but also tough enough to withstand repeat use without wear and tear.

If you rock a particularly heavy or bulky instrument then decent padding and width on your strap is a no-brainer. Even if your instrument is a relatively light one, gigging for long hours will take it’s toll. The last thing you want is to cause unnecessary strain when playing music, so comfort is vital.

Our MONO straps are designed with all of this taken into consideration. The Betty strap is made with a thin memory-foam core to reduce fatigue during long hours of playing and a neoprene underbelly and military webbing for durability and breathability. The Warsaw is made from the same indestructible nylon webbing you’ll find in a car seatbelt and is fully adjustable from 34.5″ – 58”, letting you sling your guitar as low as you want.
