For those of you new to mandolin, this strap is not used like you would as if you were playing a guitar. forget putting it over your head like you do with your guitar. With this strap it is all about using you other shoulder. Bill Monroe, the father of bluegrass music played his mandolin with his strap on his right shoulder. This strap is at the perfect length for this style. Think it does not work with an A body mandolin? Guess again. Notice there is a sideways slot on one end of the strap? Here is how you mount the strap to you mandolin. Do this. Take the skinny end of that strap and go from the up side just behing the fret board and under the end of it and if you have a pick guard on your mandolin keep feeding that tip under the front of the pick guard. Then pull the strap through and go to the back side of the mandolin and take the other end of the strap and feed that skinny end through that slot. You have just made a loop around you front portion of the body with your strap. Now tighten it up like you are about to choke your mandolin. you want that end of the slot positioned at the top of the mandolin as you were holding it to play. NEXT. take that skinny end and install that to your strap pin at the back pf the mandolin. The hole on the very end may be the one you need unless you are a child. Once that is all done put your pickin hand through the strap and slide it up your to your shoulder and get ready to play.Your mandolin is going to be in a great playing position for chop chords and also closer to your heart where bluegrass music lives. It might take a while getting used to having a strap on the opposite shoulder that you have a guitar strap. Once you get used to playing like this you will love it. The old timers play like that and for this reason. You did not have to take off your hat to put on your instrument to play. Just pick up your instrument and start pickin. If you watch some Bill monroe videos on You Tube you will see what I am trying to describe.

Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Leather Mandolin Strap:

The strap was a little difficult to put on because the holes were way to small for the strap button at the bottom of the mandolin. This also means the strap doesn't move as easily on that end.

It is the perfect size for the smaller instrument, and really looks great with it!

              Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Leather Mandolin Strap:

              Great price for a very practical strap. It provides a number of length options and is very attractive. I found the suede like underside would kling to my clothing so I reversed the placement of the sides by attaching the strap with smooth leather "topside" underneath and the suede-like "underside" showing on top. Removed the white tag as close as possible and darkened the remainder using a black sharpie. I'm very pleased with my purchase.

              This mandolin strap is not very wide, but it doesn't cut into my shoulder like I was afraid it might. It's the perfect length and very easy to use.

              It has enabled me to improve my posture while I am practicing sitting down, and holds it at the perfect spot for playing standing up. It has quite a range for length adjustment, so it should fit just about everyone.

              Also, it sure does look nice!

                            This is a simple, durable and affordable mandolin strap to hang your mandy, in optional ways, off your body.
