A funky strap.
I call it the "shredder" strap (playing so many sixteenth
notes that the picks are in real danger of flying off any minute!).
Anyway I arranged 8 picks with all their individual pockets
(4 on the front, 4 on the back) ready for a quick switch-over
in between sets. Heck, you could even afford to throw a few
picks to the crowds at your next festival gig! You will never
have the problem of not finding a pick as long as you keep this
strap stocked up!
I noticed the picks
are best taken out with your left hand if you are right handed
I wanted to play
primarily with black and red. The black is stitched with red
thread and the red with black thread. I cut out slots and threaded
red leather thonging through it. This arrangement of pockets
allows for changes of colors. You can be visually creative -
collect different coloured plectrums and see what you like!
Plectrums make a nice decorative motif on this one.
This strap is adjustable
back and front. The width is 2 3/4'' at its widest part and
1 1/2" at the narrower ends. The top leather is 1.5 mm
Veg tanned cowhide. Underneath is a 2 mm cowhide split suede;
it's thick, it's non-slip and it adds a nice weight and nice
feel to the strap. The buckles are covered in Kangaroo Leather
(the strongest thin leather in the world)"
