Would you guys buy a personalised (with your design) guitar strap/ plectrum/ drum sticker?.

If so how much would you be willing to pay?

Also would you use personalised plectrums as band merch/ promotional gear?

How much would you expect to pay for personalised picks?

What is the biggest contributor to your decision to buy a strap?:

a) the style
b) the design (printed on it)
c) The quality of the materials used
d) the price
e) the feel (whilst on e.g. does it suppor well)

What type of designs do you like to see on a strap? (what straps do you have?)

Whats your biggest problem with straps?


Please give me some honest feedback as i've been thinking about it for a while!

If so how much would you be willing to pay? $25-$50, depending on quality of materials

Also would you use personalised plectrums as band merch/ promotional gear? Depends on prices. If they're not too bad, sure.

How much would you expect to pay for personalised picks? $10-$20

a) the style
b) the design (printed on it)
c) The quality of the materials used
d) the price
e) the feel (whilst on e.g. does it suppor well)

What type of designs do you like to see on a strap? (what straps do you have?) I just have a plain gray leather strap. Pretty basic. If i were to make a personalized one I'd have logos of my favorite bands or something.

Whats your biggest problem with straps? Never really had many problems. A couple of them fell off here and there.


Please give me some honest feedback as i've been thinking about it for a while! I have done so.


Thanks Guys! No problem!
You dirty piece of shit, you.

If I was still in a gigging band, I would quite possibly buy personalised picks yeah. They'd have to be cheap enough to compete with ordinary picks though. So I would happily buy them in bulk loads for around 50p each (that's what you would normally spend on a single pick here).

Straps: Quality comes first, the part that hooks onto the strap button can't be a flimsy, thin bit of leather. They come off your guitar too easily. Then it's price, feel, style/design.

My main two straps are this and this. They are both fantastic.

I also own this and this. They're both pretty decent as well.

My biggest problem with straps is as I stated before: When the ends are made from flimsy leather that comes off the guitar too easily.

Probably not a pick (because the pick itself probably wouldn't be very good), yes to the other two.

If so how much would you be willing to pay?

No more than £15 for a strap, around £5 for a drum sticker.

Also would you use personalised plectrums as band merch/ promotional gear?

Yes.

How much would you expect to pay for personalised picks?

Maybe £1 for a single one, £5 for ten etc.

Probably something tribal or swirly, maybe flames. I'm not a subtle person

Whats your biggest problem with straps?

The strap coming off (usually at the neck end) because of the hole being too big (ololol)

Good for you.

Would you guys buy a personalised (with your design) guitar strap/ plectrum/ drum sticker?.
Yes. I especially like the idea of a drum sticker.

If so how much would you be willing to pay?
Depends. Different materials cost differently.

Also would you use personalised plectrums as band merch/ promotional gear?
Indeed.

How much would you expect to pay for personalised picks?
*Does a rough conversion of rands to dollars in his head*
$1 - $10 possibly. Depends on materials (metal or plastic)


What is the biggest contributor to your decision to buy a strap?:

a) the style b) the design (printed on it)
These first.
c) The quality of the materials used
I just see whether it's leather or not leather really
d) the price
This second.
e) the feel (whilst on e.g. does it suppor well)
Eh, most of them feel the same to me anyway, unless it's something outrageous.

What type of designs do you like to see on a strap? (what straps do you have?)
I have a Planet Waves material strap with skulls on it.
I also have an Ernie Ball standard material strap.
Too, I have a leather strap with alternating pictures of a Les Paul guitar with wings and a banner that says "Rednecked Woman"


Whats your biggest problem with straps?
Every one that I've bought (except my leather one) has fallen off my guitar when using it because the strap simply cannot withstand the guitar's weight or the holes stretch too much. My strap fell off my one guitar resulting in a chip coming out of the back of it from falling on a wooden floor. I've since had all of my straps reinforced at the hold areas and have had no problems.

Please give me some honest feedback as i've been thinking about it for a while!
Already did that.


Thanks Guys!
You're welcome.

Stuff like that's on Jimmy Page's Poppy oufit thing. That weird trippy cool oriental rock 'n' roll shit.

Whats your biggest problem with straps?

Lots of them being too short.

If so how much would you be willing to pay? Up to $30 for a non-leather. $50-60 for a quality leather one.

Also would you use personalised plectrums as band merch/ promotional gear? Yes

How much would you expect to pay for personalised picks? A dollar per pick. I used a type of pick that is shaped a bit oddly (second from the right, the Fender one).

What type of designs do you like to see on a strap? (what straps do you have?) I used to play with a plain black one, but I recently got a better one which has the trucker mudflap girl patterned on it. I'd like having one with either logos of my favorite bands, the name of my band, or my own name.

Whats your biggest problem with straps? If I angle the guitar upwards(at a less extreme angle), the strap often comes off the button. Other than that, how it feels on my back.
