We feature a great selection of straps for guitars, mandolins, banjos, dobros and ukuleles. Many of our fine traditionally-styled leather ones come from Long Hollow Leather in Tennessee (where they started out making leather horse tack in the 1800s). More leather and woven offerings from the Canadian company Levy’s. Among newer companies, there’s Souldier, which leads the renaissance in fun and retro straps. And most recently we’ve expanded our selection to include straps from Hang Over Straps in Tennessee.
Souldier Straps are individually sewn in a small workshop in Michigan, made by musicians with an eye for fun and an understanding of craft. Their ever-changing selection of fabrics are stitched to nylon web backings (recycled seat belt material) with hand-stitched leather ends. We’re highlighting Souldier because of their fun and varied designs. They also sew straps for mandolins and banjos.

Straps from Hang Over, sewn in Tennessee, are the most recent addition in our shop. We feature their tapestry-like designs, thick, soft and rugged fabric stitched to soft woven nylon backing.

For Soprano and Concert Ukulele, these support the instrument from underneath and hook into the soundhole. They’re adjustable for length. The beaded ones are $15.95, the fabric ones are $21.95. Selection varies; please call for current fabrics in stock.
For Tenor and Baritone Ukuleles, we have straps that are primarily designed for mandolin but which we’ve found work quite nicely for larger ukuleles. They’re slimmer than guitar straps and come in a fun array of colors and patterns. You can see our current selection on our Souldier Mandolin Straps page.
