The strapmate allows acoustic players to use a strap without either drilling a second peg hole or using string or shoe laces to attach the strap to the headstock. 3 colours available, to complement natural wood grains Ebony (black) Rosewood (Dark Brown) and Mahogany (Red-Brown).
- Our expertise is the leather and it took considerable research around UK tanneries to get what we believe to be the best for the job – good strength and tensile properties and minimum stretch (comparatively) we used a recognised National Testing Laboratory to get the real data on strength & performance. As a result, our leather element is guaranteed for loads up to 25kg. Not even a full bell brass bodied resonator gets up to that! Maybe a concrete twin-neck would offer a bit of a challenge?
- The pattern of the cut is critical to the way this fits the anatomy of the guitar. Extensive time and effort in cutting prototypes at different angles and testing them on a range of different necks & heads was necessary to find the optimum design which we ultimately chose to have the tools made for. We arrived at a design that is sympathetic to the flair of the headstock and throws the strap back towards the shoulder, where it needs to be for fit & comfort.
