Anyone found a neat way to pad their own strap? It would be a considerable saving, financially and neckwise.
Put up a photo of your creation when it is done please. I am intrigued..........Heath Robinson is just what I'm looking for, thanks. Reluctant to spend €50 or more having a strap sent. Just Joe's looks great but what a price! It's not exactly rocket science. Off to look for some neoprene padding and a needle and thread.
How good is the Kolbl product? I have a Cebulla for my alto which is superb but then again I never really get any ache from neck straps....my neck is 20" due to front row prop position in rugbyyou can spend a lot less, and get a lot less too.
Kölbl have rather cheap products.
Recently I have acquired a great leather photographic strap, the iErnest camera strap, now only at 64€ while the original price was 129€, also no rocket science but try exploring this market to learn how much quality products cost.
Similarly, I have bought a camera satchel.
I have bought one made of canvas in China. Western products leather made were way above my budget.
Hardly rocket science too.
Crikey you drive a hard thread! Neoprene, off the back of some old bag handle and wrapped in leather. How is that?This thread is about padded straps. I asked for DIY ideas, not pics of pricey products even though some are tempting. I have a worn out leather jacket which may not be moose but could surely serve as covering. More ideas please.
