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!

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 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.

              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.

                  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).

                        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.

                        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.

                                Padded area of strap ended up on my back and the adjustable buckle was sitting on my shoulder. This did not make for a very comfortable experience at all. I play a fender jazz bass at medium strap length and I could not find a way to make this strap work.

                                With the padding on the inside of the strap, it does not pad the shoulder well. The weight of your instrument is supported under the padding on the outside of the tubular nylon strap. Also difficult to use with lighter instruments, due to the buckles being against the front of your shoulder unless you wear your guitar below your waist. Poor design. Waste of money.

                                The polypropylene insert even when slid all the way to the neck side with the strap adjusted all the way up does not adequately cover my left shoulder. Why in the world would they bother putting it in there unless it comes over the front of your shoulder?? I got it because I was looking for something to help with some cushioning and this does NOT do the job. Disappointed in this so I got a LM bass strap that works great and costs less.

                                This is a pretty good strap, but not the best I've used. It is highly adjustable to the long side but less so to the short side, so if you wear your bass high, you'll probably want to look at other options.

                                The adjustment buckle rests on shoulder which can be uncomfortable at some adjustment lengths. This may be more bothersome to some users than to others.

                                I noticed a lot of people are complaining about the pad being in the middle of their back, but i haven't had that problem at all. Very comfortable and good quality.

                                This strap was designed by someone who does not play a guitar. As many have stated, the pad rests in the middle of your back, no matter how you adjust it. It needs to be 1/3 of the way from the front end, not 1/2 between both ends. I have it fully extended to get the bass to hang where I want it. The strap could be 6" to 8" longer so there would be some more adjustment. The leather ends are heavy duty, and will probably last me another 48 years.The pick pocket is not a big deal, I never use a pick, and if I did, the big Fender triangles that I like would not fit in that little pouch. The "free" pick is just that, worthless. Planet Waves did use nice heavy polypropylene material on this strap. I would rather have a 4" full length polypropylene strap without the pad and pick pocket, but you can't find them any more.

                                I am not too terribly picky about the aesthetics of straps. For me, form yields to function. A durable, comfortable, 3" wide, black strap at a nice price was what I was after. I get all of that from this Planet Waves model and may purchase additional of this same strap for the other heavy axes in the toolshed.
                                The padding on the strap is superb, the material is durable, and it accomplishes weight distribution over a wider area than traditional straps. Nice adjustable length also.
                                So far, so good. I have had this strap on two heavy basses (Ibanez ATK and Washburn Taurus) for about three months. It has improved my comfort on long practices/gigs and overall playing experience.
                                This strap seemed to be the best price for a 3" poly and padded strap.

                                I've used this strap for 1 year and half now and it's still lasting. It holds my bass up and never comes loose and never withers.

                                I bought 2 of these 15 years ago and they are just the best. Customer support from Planet Waves is excellent too.After 15 years the leather broke on 1 of these and I contacted Planet Waves and showed them pictures and they sent me a new one.I just love the 3 inches wide and the heavy duty of these. It makes my old les Paul feel lighter because the weight is spread out. I use one on my Thunderbird bass too and it feels so good.
