Mandolin players tell me that they like my hand tooled leather mandolin straps. They are very simple and easy to use (no music degree required...). Lightweight but made from exceptionally nice leather and finished by hand here in my Bromyard workshop. Yes, Bromyard, Herefordshire, UK. British craftsmanship is alive and well in the West Midlands!
I digress. This is a 1.25" wide hand-tooled adjustable leather mandolin strap that adjusts from 40" to 46"" long and made from supple 2.5 (approx) thick leather. It has a 3 neat button slots at the tail end, and a single button slot at the head. It is fitted with a solid brass buckle and has been topstitched (stitched around the edge) in natural coloured heavy harness thread to minimise stretching.
Button sizes are generally pretty standard and similar to a guitar but if you have monsters or tiddlers then do tell me and I'll see what can be done.
What my customers say about my instrument straps:
"Wow Ray! We love love love our hand tooled straps, they are beautiful stylish and a credit to you. Thank you so much". Wendy from West Sussex
