Those of you that had a goth or metal phase will know that its is hard to get your blacks to match, especially after you have washed them a bit and they become less black than new. What you see here is a solution to that problem: we put tha black velvet on toast suede. It makes for a nice contracts while still, basically, being a black strap.


Our Velvet is a little rough to the touch. We use car upholstery because it's tough. The dress maker stuff we used for our initial  prototypes frayed at the edges way too fast for us.


Our heads and tails (ends) are double suede with stitched keyholes for durability and security.

The back is a thick suede, with no vinyl or rivets to rip out.

Excellent materials and overall product

This gives my Strat even more vibe and attitude of the 70s. I mean would've thought the strap plays a huge role in what vibe you're trying to nail for a guitar. So this velvet is very nice and comfortable. The suede backing doesn't slip and slide on your shoulder while you're playing. Best suede strap I've tried so far, and I don't like suede, but this particular strap has the best suede around for sure.
