Reasonably-Priced Levy's PM32 Strap

As a Bassist of a variety of Basses (mostly 5-strings, but 4 & 6s as well) weighing a decent amount, as well as being a Bassist with a Disability as well as Severe Back Weakness I've mostly stuck to various Neoprene-based Straps for their padding and "shock absorbing" qualities. However, as I just received an Epiphone Jack Casady Signature Bass in Limited Edition Silverburst (1 of 500) I felt a more traditional Leather Strap was called for, as well as a longer strap than my typical Neoprene Straps because of the placement of the strap button on the Neck Heel as opposed to the Top Horn.

Measuring how long a strap I'd need for both fingerstyle as well as pickstyle to be comfortable, I went with Levy's PM32 3-Inch Padded Leather Strap and am quite happy with it. Made of 3-inch wide quality leather with padding material sewn inside for a Very Reasonable Price, I might pick a few more up and replace some of my older, slightly decaying Neoprene Straps - I'm also the type of guy that has a strap for every Bass and not 1 Strap To Rule Them All, as I like to "set them up" individually in length for the different body style/ergonomics, playing & musical style such as Fingerstyle or Pickstyle, slapping, etc. Also, other reviews that bring up "long" or "short" issues might want to check what they purchased again: there's an XL Version of this strap that would make it far too long for a "waist-height" Bass, but the Regular Model has plenty of room for your reasonable Bassist or Guitarist.

A well-made, good quality Leather Strap for an extremely reasonable price... a steal, even!

I read all of the mixed reviews. Negative reviews said the strap is too short. Positive reviews said the negative reviewers must want the guitar at their knees. Despite the negative reviews, this was the only 3 inch strap, and I wear my guitar around the belt-buckle area, so I purchased the item.

The strap is too short (even at the longest adjustment). Unless you are 5'0 tall or like being choked by your guitar, do not buy it. There are some positive things to say about this item, but they do not matter, because the strap is unusable.

Another thing to be aware of. I have two strap-lock systems. The strap is made of 2 leather sides with a cushioned material between. It is way too thick to push the pins through.

Very comfortable

By Mike VB

from Hayward, CA

Comments about Levy's 3" Padded Leather Guitar Strap:

This strap is very comfortable and nice looking.I don't understand how people think it is too short though as I am 6' 3" 205 lbs and it is laced through the 4th and 5th loops from the end on my Carvin DC127 and is about perfect for me. A guitar does not need to be down to your waist or lower as that hinders your ability to play correctly.

      Comments about Levy's 3" Padded Leather Guitar Strap:

      saw some reviews that say the strap is too short but i think what they meant is that the length of the strap with padding is short relative to the entire length of the strap. only about 60% of the strap is padded and the rest is just plain leather, so if you strap low the padded area may not even touch your shoulder. i don't hang my guitar too low so its fine for me.

        See all my reviews

        Comments about Levy's 3" Padded Leather Guitar Strap:

        This strap is very wide and thick. It makes my Telecaster feel like a feather and my Les Paul feel like a hollow body. It's pretty short, though. I'm only about 5', so it's great for me, but tall people beware. Also, if you have thin shoulders, you might want to pick a different strap. On the positive side, it makes long gigs with heavy guitars painless.

        Comfortable, easily adjusted for your needs, keeps a firm grasp on the strap pegs o nthe guitar
        Exactly what it says it is
        Too early to tell, we will see!
        A little pricey, but it is padded & leather

        Tan Strap

        By Vincent Gonzalez

        from ca, us

        Comments about Levy's 3" Padded Leather Guitar Strap:

        I would consider this strap the middleground between a solid leather construction strap, to a neoprene constructed strap. This strap is totally awesome. Now if this strap somehow was able to use neoprene for the padding that'd be awesome.
        It adjusts. Does not leave a lump, IF you assemble it correctly.

        It's wide enough, and padded enough.
        The quality is damn near perfect. The stitching is perfectly aligned. Only a few stray threads. The strap is symetrical, no complaints.

        The construction is not solid leather, but uses a very rigid synthetic material between two plys of leather.
        If all straps were $40. I'd say a 10. Otherwise 9, considering $5 really isn't that much of a difference.

        Nice Strap but short...

        By Joe-gRNcN

        from Mountainhome PA

        See all my reviews

        Comments about Levy's 3" Padded Leather Guitar Strap:

        I gave the strap away because I could not return it.
        Like others here I felt this strap is short. The length is 53 inches that puts the strap just about where my previous strap sits ... The problem is to get to that length I am at the bottom most whole...this puts the fold over section of the strap in a spot on my back that became VERY uncomfortable. So I ended up with a lighter Les Paul on my shoulder with an anoying lump in my back.

        A frustrating thing from an expensive strap. I will give it to my son to use and get a different strap...Don't know if I will go with a Levys or not.
        Gave it a 5 because eveneventhough it is made out of quality components the design is lacking.
        Gave it a value rating of 5 because how much value can there be in a strap that I'm giving away.

            Levy makes great straps! I own several. The wider padded strap takes the weight and spreads it out, making a heavy Les Paul or PRS easier to play for long shows.

                  This strap is what I use on my Sting Ray 5, and it does the job perfectly. Looks classy, feels comfortable and spreads the weight of the bass across the strap's entire width. I have a different strap on 6 different basses & guitars, and this strap with Ernie Ball strap locks keep my baby where she needs to be, comfortably! My favorite. Do yourself a huge favor - use good strap locks or you'll be sorry, no matter how great the guitar strap is.

                  Comments about Levy's 3" Padded Leather Guitar Strap:

                  I really like this strap. I measured the length I needed before selecting a strap so there was no issue with that. The padding isn't very soft, but it is better that way as it functions better and will last longer. The only issue I had was that the strap is so thick that it was very hard to get on my standard size strap pins. That's okay as I don't take the strap off and the thickness is going to mean the strap will last longer. I am sure that after taking it on and off a few times it would loosen a bit and be easier to deal with.

                        Not exceptionally tall player and allows git to be played on the hip, bass player may think this too short however. I own a very old version 2.5" and it is broken in, supple and nicely padded. The newer version seems a little thin and probably has a different pad material, but not by much. Looks like it will wear in the same. Great looks and function.

                          I purchased this strap for a Les Paul guitar that was quite heavy, and I was not disappointed. The strap is made of soft quality leather (made in Canada), and is fully padded.

                          It is so comfortable I don't mind the weight at all, even after a few hours. I was so happy with the quality of this strap that I purchased one for my bass guitar as well.

                          I definitely recommend this product.

                            I often go three-plus continuous hours when I'm playing or practicing; which means my guitar can feel like a boat anchor near the end of the session. The padded leather and extra-wide construction spread that weight over a much larger portion of your shoulder - making this the most comfortable, rugged, and beautiful strap I own.

                              I read about it being short but it measured the same as other straps I was replacing. At 5'-10" with my Anderson T centered at my belt the strap will still extend three inches longer.
                              It is comfortable, good looking and well built. I am very happy with it and I doubt I will ever have to replace it.

                                  Product as advertised. I now own three Levy's straps.
