Padded Guitar Strap

Why choose a Padded Guitar Strap?

Many electric guitars are quite heavy in weight. Which means standing for long periods of time with your guitar can result in aching shoulders, neck pain, back pain, and general muscle discomfort.


Some guitarists choose to play lighter guitars to remedy this, but many put up with the pain because they like the extra sustain of a weighty guitar.


The best solution to this problem is a good Padded Guitar Strap.


Guitar straps, of the padded variety, are usually a little wider than standard straps. This helps to distribute the guitar’s weight over a larger area. This results in more comfort to the player.


Here are a few of the major benefits of using a padded guitar strap:

  • You will play more accurately
  • You will reduce fatigue
  • You will get rid of the pain distractions, thus enhancing your overall guitar playing technique

(These benefits are especially important to the shredders out there who know that playing fast is all about comfort)


So if you want your playing to improve, give some serious thought to buying a good padded guitar strap, like the top quality straps below …
