We get a lot of customers with neck and shoulder pain because of their heavy guitars and basses. A narrow strap only adds to this discomfort....that's why we offer a 4-inch wide model. Our comfy 4 inch straps do a great job distributing the weight of a heavy instrument during those long gigs and practice sessions. Give one a try and see what you've been missing!

Metal on your strap? We Just Don't Get It
Buckles, buttons, grommets, studs. Metal on a guitar strap? We just don’t get it. A number of other “high end” guitar strap manufacturers use metal in the design of their straps – especially metal buckles for adjustment. We just don’t see why you’d want metal scratching and dinging your favorite guitar or bass. No one needs a metal buckle digging into their back on stage or causing damage to the instrument when its put back in the case. We know how valuable your instruments are and that resale value is important. From the beginning, Italia Straps have used an elegant no-hardware design that’s easy to adjust. Say no to metal…on your strap.
We love customer strap photos like this!

"In my 25 years of playing professionally, I've never owned a strap this nice. The craftsmanship, choice of leather, great looks and most of all the comfort of this strap is beyond measure. Thank you Italia Leather Straps for your attention to detail and pride in your work. It shows!"
