When you play guitar you’re expressing yourself musically. Part of that expression though is the look of your instrument and its accessories. That’s where Franklin straps come in. Handsomely crafted and featured in a variety of materials, cuts and designs, these straps are also known for their unparalleled softness. If you’re searching for something to not only keep you comfortable while you play, but look good doing it, these are the guitar straps for you. Before getting into the specifics, a great place to start when going through this section is the size of the straps themselves. Ranging from 2" to 3", this will dictate how the strap sits on your shoulder (with bigger musicians usually opting for thicker straps). It all comes down what is easiest on your shoulder while you perform or practice.
After that, the material is often the next factor that you should look at. Leather or suede are considered the classic gold standard when it comes to strap material for appearance, feel and durability, but if you’re searching for something a little more breathable, take a look at cotton. Also, extremely soft, cotton has a natural feel, perfect for longer sets.
Finally, but equally important, is the look of the strap. With different designs, details and cuts, every guitar strap offers something unique in terms of appearance. Adding to your stage presence and complementing your guitar, the look of your strap should reflect your individual personality. There is no right or wrong when it comes to the style, just your own specific preference.
With over 25 years in the industry, Franklin straps have more than proven themselves with their quality, design and passion for guitars. Made with top materials and crafted to look absolutely stellar, these straps are used by musicians all over the world. Strap on a Franklin yourself and you’ll be able to tell the difference immediately.
