Low Priced Banjo Straps
Low Priced Banjo Strap for Beginners
GoldTone Strap with Leather Tabs
This is a great low priced banjo strap that is specially made for a banjo and works great on lighter weight models or banjos without enough space under the hooks for a cradle strap. The strap is made specifically for 5 string banjo and uses leather tabs with plastic bolt and nut for attachment to the banjo head tightening hooks. The leather tabs are the best way to attach a low priced banjo strap like this. Most music stores carry cheap straps that have metal clips that make noise and can scratch the wood and hardware on the banjo. Here is a picture of the leather tab that goes around the brackets holding down the head. It attaches easily and makes no noise when you move it and won't scratch the banjo.
These straps will work great for banjos without enough space under the hooks for a cradle strap.Uses plastic hooks that don't scratch and not the noise a metal hook would make. The Goldtone design above is better but this strap will do the job and is better than the average banjo strap most music stores seem to have available. Ross Nickerson
Attaching the banjo strap Tip:
Hook the strap on the first or second head tightening bracket
under the neck so it supports the neck.
I would put it on the first or second bracket below the tailpiece,
the side closest to the floor on the other side too.
