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!

(Customer's Reviews)

This is the second strap like this I have purchased for my second Mastertone (everyone needs more than one!) I love this strap with the good padding. Also, the length is adjustable so I can put it over my head to the opposite shoulder as my shoulders must be round as I can't put it on my right shoulder like Earl did! The best part is that the strap holds the banjos in a cradle, instead of like so many other straps that hook to one of the tension hoop brackets. It holds your banjo at the right angle that you prefer. Anyway, I would recommend this strap. I was going to make a strap but with the time involved it was much better to just buy this one, and it's worth it!


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.
