OVERVIEW

A guitar strap built to last and save your body during long performances.

In creating the GS1 Betty Guitar Strap, Mono Cases has gone the extra mile to provide you with a guitar strap like no other. Its lightweight construction belies that it is made of indestructible materials and has smart features to provide the ultimate playing experience. With a classic, minimalist design sporting hi-tech materials, the GS1 brings the past into the future with a feel that must be worn to be believed.

The GS1's wide wale design distributes the weight of heavy instruments. A thin, memory-foam core reduces fatigue during long hours of play. A smooth, Neoprene underbelly (like the kind found in wetsuits) lets the shoulder breathe and slides nicely across your shirt or skin. This lets you forget about your instrument and concentrate on your music.

These straps are built for life on stage. Get creative with the hidden mini pocket, which stashes picks, a slide, or whatever, right where you need it for quick access during play. They also include Matte black steel hardware and military-grade webbing for those extreme wear performances.

GS1's will fit standard bass and guitar strap pins.

  • Thin, memory-foam core

  • Military-grade webbing

This strap is just too good to be true. Great looks and great functionality..it really has it all AND at a great price. Most comfortable strap I have EVER had. Worth every penny. The design totally takes the weight off your shoulders and distributes it quite nicely. I use a heavy Yamaha 1200S bass and a Michael Kelly Patriot Custom 6-string which is primarily heavy mahogany. I've also had both shoulder and back problems and several surgeries. Wouldn't leave home..or practice without "Betty" around me. Puts every other strap I've ever had to shame.

I needed a quality, long strap to use with my Epiphone Jack Casady bass. This strap is extra long and very comfortable. The strap ends are very soft leather, and the button holes are already wallowing out. I fear the holes will soon wear out and the strap will come off the bass while I am playing. I was hoping to not use straplocks due to the button orientation - but I guess I will have to put a set on. Overall a great strap, but overpriced for what you get.

Meh.

Comments about M80 Betty Guitar Strap:

Decent strap. The short version isn't wide enough to handle a bass comfortably. I recently used this strap with my Sadowsky MV5 on a twelve-day run. We played three hours of music each night and after the 4th night, my shoulder was killing me. Gonna have to go back to comfort strapps I think.

Comments about MONO M80 Betty Guitar Strap:

I'm a bass player, so our instruments tend to be heavier than most guitars (Les Pauls being a possible exception). For many years, I used Pro Comfort Bass Strapps exclusively. They are great, extremely comfortable straps.

But I'm a pretty big guy, and eventually found that the Comfort Strapp Long version was just a tad too short. While the Extra Long is long enough, the "sweet spot" of the strap didn't sit where it should on my shoulder.

Reluctantly, I decided to try the Mono Betty (Long) several years ago. Voila!! Plenty of length, and ALSO very comfortable. It has become my go-to strap. I've been building my collection the last few years and now have enough Betty straps for all my basses. (I like having a strap for each bass so I can leave them on the bass all the time.) These are great straps. A little bit of "grip" on the back, but not so much that it yanks your shirt all over the place if you move around.

The only thing I don't care for is the bright white "MONO" printed prominently on each strap. I find it rather garish, but I came up with a solution if anybody is interested. I simply go over the "MONO" printing with a black permanent marker. It is still visible from up-close, but not from a distance. I actually think it looks kind of classy blacked out! (See pics below, but while the "After" pic looks grey, it's just because of the flash. Plus, the "Before" pic is still in it's plastic shipping sheath.)

One suggestion, if you're listening, Mono folks: Please consider offering The Betty in a brown shade or two. Yes, black goes with everything, but some browns would be a welcome addition.

      The strap that I received looked terrible. The stitching was sloppily done. The horizontal rows of stitching were not parallel. I returned this for a different strap.

      Never had a strap that was so comfortable. Almost like the guitar isn't there if you know what I mean. Very strong.

        Very comfortable. The only down size is the fresh rubber smell when you open it up. They use a thick piece of rubber on the ends of the strap which are very sturdy, but take a while for that smell to disappear.

        Comments about MONO M80 Betty Guitar Strap:

        The build quality is excellent. I feel like this strap will be with me for a long time. I use it on my bass which I sling a little low, but being a bigger guy, I just need more room in general. We'll see how this strap stands the test of time, but the build quality is VERY good, so I am not worried about purchasing another strap for a long time. It is about as comfortable as other wide straps, which is very good as well.

          Mono makes a good strap. Guitar or bass. have 2 of these on my bass guitars. Very comfortable and worth the money. Don't be buying a cheap strap you will only regret it.

            Comments about MONO M80 Betty Guitar Strap:

            I have to plug the neotech super axe straps I have been using for over 10 years now. They are right up there with the Mono strap for quite a bit less money. I had a few reasons to try the Mono strap and I am extreamly pleased that I did. #1- I wore out my first Neotech and wanted to replace it. (Using it since 2002) #2- I bought the Mono bass gig bag and LOVE it, so I was curious to try their strap. #3- I sprained my left shoulder, and although the Neotech straps were great, I wondered if maybe there was something that would work even better to releive the inflamed joint. Frankly I'm surprised. It seems even more comfortable than the Neotech, or padded leather Levy straps I use for my other basses. If there is one thing that concerns me about the Mono strap, it's the powder coated metal attachment they use. Functionally it's fine, but if you like to leave the strap locked on to your instrument while it's in the gig bag, or case, it might scratch or ding the finish. I've had no trouble with the plastic used on the other straps in that regaurd. And finally, a strap long enough for a grizzley bear sized bass player like me!:-)
