Hello,

I am looking for an relatively cheap ukulele strap. I found this one on ebay that looks good and it comes out to about $11 USD shipped.

Any one think that I should or shouldn't get this one:

I am on Oahu, haven't looked at any local shops yet.

I would appreciate any other suggestions.

Thanks,

Daniel

When you find out please let me know :p

Have you used that one? I will definately consider it. The price comes out to about the same... Since they are the same price would you choose one over the other?

Thanks

What size ukelele do you have? I took a look at the suggestion for the other strap and one review says that hook part gets in the way of the strings on their soproano.

I have a Kamaka Soprano so I choose the AU one if it is less likely to have clearance issues.

Do you have a soproano and is string clearance an issue?

Thanks,

i havent really given both a thorough look but seems to me they're about the same. I'd say get either one. at the same time. go check out local shops on the island. most shops carry them. location kailua? if i remember correctly, windward mall has music mac on the 2nd floor. they should be stocked with ukulele straps for about the same price. no waiting for your shipment, local service, and its right in your area :).

I stole a strap from my sisters mini-learner guitar, and it fits perfectly with my tenor.

Anything that clips into the sound hole kind of gives me the willies...don't like the idea of something clinging to the wood, and also kind of bugs me to have the strap running across the sound board like that...

I use a Planet Waves mandolin strap on my Pono PTS-E - because it has the pickup, there's a strap button/jack on the bottom; the top is tied to the headstock. I'm a hefty guy and it fits me, though I had to widen the hole a bit where it goes on the button. Adding a button for a strap is EASY, even for someone who's all thumbs (like me) - I've done that, too, and the results were great.
