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:

    A lot of people complain about this strap having two adjustment buckles, but it made no difference to me.
    First off, you can slide the front buckle all the way to it's longest adjustment and the strap still performs like any other strap as you can adjust the back buckle just as you would a strap that has only one buckle. I am not sure why the maker decided to add the front buckle. Beyond that, this strap is just fine whether you are short or tall and use it on a bass or guitar. It is very adjustable, period.
    I find that the nylon digs into my skin after a couple of hours of playing. The padded area is not very padded, but it helps a little.

        I was using guitar straps for 20 years when I'd play my bass every now and then. I'm a guitarist. Never knew they made wider, more comfortable straps until I happened to find this. Wow...what a difference! Great deal!

              I bought this strap as a replacement for a ~ 3yr old identical one, which I use at beach gigs (LOTS of them) with my acoustic guitar. It saves me from the wear & tear on my shoulders I used to get from thinner "guitar" straps. Very durable.......I'm only disappointed that this one didn't include the red "Planet Waves" insignia. Otherwise 5 stars!

                  Not as comfortable or nice as much more expensive straps, such as my Levy's 3" leather but definitely beats anything costing always twice its price. In my opinion a very functional and somewhat comfy strap for very little cash. I have two of these now and would recommend to anyone not wanting to spend too much on good straps.

                      As noted by another reviewer, the style has been changing over time.

                      I just bought another one. The strap is still high quality, fits well, stays put, eases the load, and is durable.

                        I am about 5'11" and on the slender side (I know this is not a dating website). I mention this because if you are about my build and like your bass about belt high, do not buy this strap. It has a buckle on both sides of the foam shoulder center. No matter how you adjust it, the buckle sits on top of your shoulder and digs in. The foam lays uselessly on your back. I tried in on a P-Bass, a J-Bass, a Ric and even a Carvin bass. I had to send the strap back. If you're really tall or wear your bass down at the knees you're in luck!
