  • Easy to attach

  • Constructed of soft, durable neoprene, elastic material, and two layers of memory foam to add extra cushion and help wick away moisture

The Mega Strap™ Series eliminates shoulder fatigue and is available in sizes to fit every instrument—from the highest-positioned jazz bass to the lowest-slung rock-n-roll guitar. There's also two versions for banjo!

Product Description

The patented internal control-stretch system utilized by our Mega Strap™ Series makes instruments feel 50% lighter and 100% more comfortable. We’ve improved on this amazing system by creating a unique shoulder pad constructed of soft, durable neoprene, elastic for added support and two layers of memory foam to add extra cushion and help wick away moisture. The materials are expertly bonded together and then sewn with Lycra® binding around the edge to create a sleek, comfortable pad. This one-of-a-kind pad offers more comfort across the shoulder and back than you might have thought possible when wearing a heavy instrument. Top grade leather attachments (short, reg., midsize, long) or sturdy nylon loop connectors (banjo) make this a strap that will last a lifetime. The tailored design appeals to users of all playing abilities and the comfort is unmatched by any other strap. It's sure to be a favorite!

The Mega Strap™ Series is available in short, regular, midsize, long and two banjo sizes to accommodate most any player and instrument combination. For optimal comfort, it is best to select the correct strap by first measuring from the top of the left shoulder to the position of the front strap pin when the instrument is held in playing position. Using this measurement, plus the overall length of the desired strap, the chart below will help to determine the strap size needed for the best possible custom fit to maximize performance and comfort.
