I've been using this strap since the mid-90's, practicing, rehearsing and gigging up to 5 nights a week. I purchased the first one because my 11-1/2 pound bass guitar on the 2" wide strap was KILLING my shoulder. And at 6'1" and over 220lbs, I'm a big, tough guy! As far as the pad floating down the inside, which a few people have complained about and I battled with in the beginning, I adjusted mine to a comfortable position, tacked the pad in place with a couple of stitches from a needle and thread, and YOWZA! No more problem. It takes a bit of work on your part, but the results are phenomenal. The Planet Waves Polypropylene Bass Guitar Strap, in my experience, is comfortable, well made, and almost indestructible. I had an inferior strap come off my Jazz Bass during a gig many years ago, but that has NEVER been an issue with the Planet Waves strap, mainly, I believe, due to the thick, stiff leather ends. Get yourself one of these straps and install strap locks on your guitars, tack the pad in a comfortable position so it doesn't move while you bop your top and you'll be STYLIN' for many moons to come!

Others have noted problems with the two-buckle arrangement but I felt my situation is so standard it could not apply to me. I was wrong.

I am a 6-foot thin bassist who's playing position is fairly standard R&B (slightly higher than "rock" style with significantly more vertical neck angle). With the shorter non-padded end set to its shortest length, the "front" (non-logo side) buckle is right at my top left shoulder, where most of the weight is being applied. Not uncomfortable immediately, but after a hour the buckle is digging into the shoulder. Any other adjustment pushes the padded section completely off my shoulder. It is the desire for the 3" padded section to be on my shoulder which drove my purchase.

I have installed strap locks on the strap which required a very slight trimming out the holes at the ends so I feel I can't return it.

I have been experimenting with a solution. Make the "front" section shorter with a loop of front webbing on top of the buckle. Fold the excess webbing back and push through the loop Velcro and apply it to the bottom of the padded section. It seems the bottom of the padded section sticks to Velcro. I only have a very small piece (from a bike mirror) and have more at another location so have completed the "fix" but it seems it would work.

In summary, if your playing position accommodates the padded section being on your shoulder, I think this would be a good comfortable and economical bass strap. Otherwise it has limited utility.

    Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Polypropylene Bass Guitar Strap:

    I play a Fender P-bass and although it is one of the best basses I've ever played it is on the heavy side. This strap is padded just enough to ease the discomfort on my shoulder after playing for long sets.

        All these people complaining about the pad not where it should be. The pad slides in the tubular strap, so you can position it wherever it best suits you.
        Overall very well made strap with a high comfort level.

            This strap had great reviews and the price was right. I only saw 1 negative review, which to me says it's probable that individual.

            For me the strap is too big, I an average size guy and wear by bass fairly low. There are 2 adjustments, front and rear. The front adjustment, plastic peace, sits right at my shoulder making uncomfortable.

                Great strap other than the fact that it can't be adjusted to shorter lengths (for those who prefer the bass to sit higher up on their body).

                  The strap they send you these days is not the strap shown in the photos. Since around December 2014, this strap has been shortened about 8" and no longer has the nice stitched-on logo with pick holder and yellow pick shown in the photos. The price is lower, but so is the functionality if you need a longer strap. I'm only 5'-10" and play my bass "rock style" at my hip, but not extremely low. The older straps with the pickholder logo were 59" long (from button hole to button hole) and more useable by people with my height (or taller) and playing style. The more recent straps are only around 51" long, so if you're tall and wear your bass lower than the middle of your stomach, you won't be happy with the current strap. I'd rather they bring the price back up and give us back the longer "logo" strap shown in the photos. I'd also rather MF stop using the incorrect previous photos, and tell us how long the strap is in the ad. It's frustrating when you don't receive what they advertise.

                    Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Polypropylene Bass Guitar Strap:

                    I now own three of these straps, one for each of my basses. Two were bought in local music stores, and one was recently bought from Musician's Friend. The strap I received from Musicians Friend does not have the Planet Waves logo and seems to be several inches shorter than my other two. The holes cut for strap buttons also seem to be smaller; I had to enlarge them slightly so they would fit normal size strap buttons. The shipping manifest lists it as the same product though, so I'm not sure what is going on.

                    That aside, these straps are awesome for bass. The padding and width really help, although it can take some adjustment to make use of the padded section. They aren't the longest straps, but they get the job done and make things easier on your shoulder.

                        You can either remove the planet wave patch/logo and slide the padding to the tip for those players who wear their guitar/bass above their belts.

                        OR you can slide padding all the way to the other end opposite of the patch if you don't want to take out the patch. Problem solved.

                        The position of the pick holder hinders how far forward the pad can be slid in the strap. Easily fixable tho, I just cut the stitching and removed it. Now it sits perfectly. It's a very comfortable strap. The inside is a soft fabric, overall I'm very satisfied. Taking away one star just because of the pick holder thing. But it really was a minor thing, and a quick fix.
