Hey y'all how's it goin? I just made a strap for my ukulele and put buttons for my strap on the uke so I thought I'd let y'all check it out. The pictures are really bad because I was taking them with my laptop because I don't have a camera.

ooo, you gotta upload those pictures to a web host for everyone to see them. or you could make them attachments in your post by using the paperclip icon on the right of the smiley face in the toolbar when you make a post.

Yeah, I'm really bad with this whole picture thing. I tried uploading them but it says that the file is too big so I'm gonna try something else.

cool strap! i use something similar -- i think the slimmer homemade straps are so much more unique and personal -- nice job!

Thanks, yours looks awesome! Now I know what my next strap will look like... I agree though, it adds a lot of personality if your strap is homemade.

I don't use a strap, except on my (currently out of service) banjo uke, but if I did, I'd want it to look like Mok's. Very cool!

I really like those it makes your ukuleles look that much more unique. I'd attempt to make one except for I never really find myself needing one because i mostly play sitting down.

Mine didn't have anything to hold a strap on either so I installed strap buttons on it after watching NukeDoc's video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j2yitWBv194). It's really easy so you should definitely try it! I got the strap buttons at the Guitar Center around here and they were about 7$ so they're pretty cheap.

NICE straps... real creative! Is the first one made from hemp?? Diggin the shells too on #2.

Anyone have the necklace strap that mounts to the sound hole? I'm wondering if it has good reviews or not before i decide to buy it, cuz all my ukes don't have strap mounts!!!

That vid was great! I'm gonna go gets me some buttons! Where can I find the background music? That part seems very important to set the strap-button-installment-mood!

$7?!? :eek: Ouch!

I've never spent more than a couple bucks each on them, mostly less than that.

I've bought a number over the years for guitars and, believe it or not, washboards. None for ukes though.

I was wondering the same thing... I don't have pegs either & the thought of drilling things into my ukulele isn't something I'm entirely comfortable with at this point ;)

Anyone that's used the necklace type or even better, both types & can compare em- that wants to give up some info? I would much appreciate it.

Yessir, it's made from hemp. I've heard good things about the straps that mount to the sound holes but I don't actually have one for myself.

He did a great job showing how to install them. Lol, yeah the music I think is from the computer game called the Sims.

Yeah, I felt kind of robbed because I heard you could get them cheap too! That's the only place I knew that had them so I went ahead and got them from there instead of shopping around like I should of...

By the way, is there any way I can merge my posts or something because I just posted 3 consecutive posts in one thread lol.
