Just like the guitars themselves, straps come in plenty of different colors. But one of the most classic looks isn't a color at all - it's what you get when there isn't any color. That's not a riddle; it's just a reference to the black guitar straps you'll find in this section. Ever since there's been black leather, there have been straps made out of it, and it's also a popular hue for synthetics like nylon and poly straps. Black guitar straps have a neutral aesthetic that can work with any stage design or guitar style, and they're available in tons of different varieties from the simple to the extravagant, so no matter what kind of strap you're into, you'll find it "back in black" right here.
To kick things off, it's safe to say that a guitar strap doesn't need to be fancy to do its job. So if you're a beginner, or a casual musician looking for something simple that gets the job done without weighing down your pocketbook, start by checking out straps like the Ernie Ball 2" Poly Strap, the Perri's 2" Nylon Guitar Strap and the Dunlop D-38 Solid Guitar Strap. Or, if you'd like something with a more natural look and feel, you could go for cotton instead with a strap such as the D'Addario Planet Waves Woven Cotton Guitar Strap.
Of course, the traditional material for guitar straps has always been leather, and you definitely have the option of going for that if you'd prefer to do things the classic way. Black leather guitar straps can be as plain and straightforward as the Perri's 2" Basic Leather Guitar Strap, or as detailed and decorated as the LM Products 2.75" Outlaw Iron Cross Leather Guitar Strap. There are also different kinds of leather to choose from, such as suede in straps like the Perri's 2-1/2" Suede Leather Guitar Strap.
Since this section is classified by color alone (and since black is about the most common strap color there is), you can find virtually any sort of strap here. Fabric straps, leather straps, specialty and padded straps - you name it. In fact, you might make a cool find just by browsing through the hundreds of designs. So whether you know exactly what you want or are just planning to wander through the lineup with your eyes peeled for a discovery, you're already off to a good start by considering these black guitar straps.
