Concerning mandolin straps.I use a Jim Avery braided straps.They are 37.00,total.His # is winter 863-314-0677,summer 419-636-4652.
I bought a King braided strap(same price) didn't like it much.So,I have a 36" two tone braided King strap I don't need.I'll probably be at the bluegrass jam Thursday,18th.

So I'm looking for a good source for a couple of braided leather mando straps. Also, want to put a button on the butt-end of the neck of my little Eastman. I hate having the strap up at the head stock. I've looked at Elderly and Janet Davis for straps, but also looking for recommendations. And for where I can get that little button.

May 2014 Calendar & News

Fred, Brandon and April made it such a nice atmosphere and the sound was perfect! I love listening to Brian's CD's but After seeing a live concert, I realized that he is truly one of the best Irish fiddlers there is in the world!
