    Default The strap poll!

    I saw that there was a new thread about strap and the number of buttons, and I thought... Lets have a poll!

    So, how do you usually support your uke when playing?

    Just pick you favorite if you use more than one way.

    Not to be difficult but it completely depends. If I am sitting then it's resting on my knee. If I am standing then it's a strap with 2 buttons.

    I know that it is not that simple, so just answer according to whether you play most standing or sitting. Or which you prefer.

    I'm always sitting (lazy, I guess), so it's on my right leg and my leg is crossed over my left to get some raise of the instrument a bit.

    "usually"
    Too many ukes, but I can't stop buying!

    I use all the above methods. Baritone sits on my lap. Mya Moes come with 2 buttons. Clara and Pono have one button. Vintage Martins have no buttons and I play the “traditional” way. Sometimes I’ll use a non button strap for the ukes without buttons.

    I mainly play sitting, so for soprano I support it w the arm and tenor/bari usually w my knee.
    Standing, I really like my Levy's "uke-leash" strap.

    I realize that perhaps I should have made separate polls for soprano/concert and tenor/baritone...

    Too late!

    Voted for strap with 2 buttons, but on soprano, I prefer 1 button, with strap tied to the headstock. Unless a soprano already has 2 strap buttons when I get it, I won't drill the heel for one, especially on a vintage uke.

    Don't own a soprano. But I use straps on my concert, three tenors and my baritone. All with two buttons and also all Sherrin's Threads straps. They are beautiful.
