These fine, hand-crafted leather straps are now available by Huber. They are stamped with a traditional basketweave pattern and are 1.25'' in width, tapering down to narrow, looped ends.
The Huber straps have no metal or plastic parts that might scratch the banjo in any way.
Banjo players are often concerned about security with their straps, fearing that if it comes loose, a valuable instrument could come crashing to the floor.
The new Huber banjo straps attach in a semi-permanent manner. The loop at the strap end is stitched together and can not slip off or come loose while you are playing.
To attach the strap, you remove the resonator and loosen the bracket nut to which you wish to hook each end of the strap.
Then, you slide the hook down from the hoop, slide the strap end over the hook, replace the hook in the hoop notch and retighten the nut.
The Huber straps are thin enough to allow them to fold alongside the banjo in the case.
