I got some new straps!



They're made by Franklin Straps: the dark one is soft leather links, the light brown one's links are of soft suede. They're fully adjustable, and DAMN comfortable. Prices are comperable to fine leather straps from other makers like Levy's, Gibson, Fender, etc.

Would DEFINITELY buy again.


I also got some new picks. The Pickboy on the left is Carbon/nylon, the Ish on the right is carbon fiber. Both are quite thin and stiff. I've owned the Pickboys before, and their texture makes for a pretty secure grip. I bought a trio more than a decade ago in a tiny mom & pop music store, and finally lost my last one in June. It took some looking around- I couldn't remember the brand at first- but finally found a nice big bag.

The Ish is new to me. They seem stiffer than the Pickboy, but the polished surface is a little bit slicker. I would expect this might cause a grip problem, but so far, none has manifested, possibly because they're slightly larger picks. I'm definitely liking them. Would buy again if the grip problem doesn't manifest.

Edit: sellers websites
http://franklinstrap.com
https://ishcase.com/

I got the straps from sellers on Reverb.com, the Ish picks from their Reverb store, and the Pickboys directly from Osiamo.

Pffft, no clips? HNSD! Those straps look comfy, I need to find a strap like those with the lil nubbin on the end for the straplocks.

Alas, the straps and picks are so noiseless I couldn't record them!

I'm sure the strap effects your tone, we need recordings now for a strap tone debate.

It looks comfy, happy NSD.

I had a belt like that in the 1970s, but it was a stiffer leather than these.

Danny, what you need is a new amp.

Comfy looking straps though.

Yeah...they're softer than some of my better wearable leather goods.

We used to make straps like that (except they were belts) in a crafts class.

we made them in cub scouts then proceeded to whip each other with them.

Everything affects tone, man! That's why metal bands wear so much black! Makes their sound darker.=D

Yes, and people still got polio and you had to crank your car up by hand and put whale oil in the lamps every night.

Style is in the hands. Taste is in the hands. But tone? Tone is in the gear.

I've been slacking. I got a custom esquire and an AC15 that I haven't made threads for yet, and Danny's throwing up picks and straps!

Nice
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

S'alrght- I haven't made a single thread for any of the pedals I've purchased in The Year of the Pedal.


Posted some pix in the pix threads, though...
