Cradle Banjo Strap

About This Item

Comfort and balanced support! A top-grain cowhide strap with comfortable 2-1/2" wide sheepskin-like shoulder padding and no metal parts to scratch the banjo.

Unlike most straps that place stress on two of the banjo's bracket hooks, the ends tie together beneath the hooks on the underside of the banjo's rim, for uniformly balanced support.

Great Strap ... but take some measurments first

(Customer's Reviews)

I've used this strap since the early 1980's and absolutely love it. I have one on my Stew-Mac kit banjo (1980's) and my 1996 Stelling Red Fox and have never had any issues with it. VERY comfortable and REALLY supports the banjo well. And, it's fully adjustable to get the banjo to hang however you'd like it to hang.

However, I recently purchased one and it will not fit my 1929 TB3 conversion banjo - at 20mm wide it is simply too wide to fit behind the brackets.

Unfortunately, I'll have to return it and find a strap that fits which is disappointing to me as I REALLY love this strap.

Great banjo strap

(Customer's Reviews)

I've never had a good Banjo strap - the traditional ones that clip on to the banjo are uncomfortable and shift the instrument off balance to the side. I bought the cradle Banjo strap from StewMac and am I glad I did! Not only is this strap super comfortable but my banjo is nicely in balance as I play, thanks to the clever wrap around design of this strap.
