    Default Shoulder Strap - Calton Case

    Just acquired a Calton mandolin case. Any recommendations for a shoulder strap that works well?

    I never liked the one mine came with. I picked up a padded strap at Eastern Mountain Sports but I can't seem to find it on their website. It had a padded shoulder and two clips. Almost any store that deals in backpacks should have a variety of straps.

    I didn't care for the strap that came with Caltons either. I use a narrow leather horseman's martingale strap....I find it stays on the shoulder easily without slipping off....especially when carrying multiple instruments

    This.

    Doesn't slip, minimizes the weight.

    I use a wide leather guitar strap. It is nicer on the shoulder for the weight. I take the adjustable narrow part off and just use the wide part, it's long enough for me and works well.

    If you want to go cheap, many army surplus stores have a choice of straps for under $5.

    I always wondered why Calton would sell a $$$ dollar case and furnish it with a .50$ strap. Go figure.
    I love hanging out with mandolin nerds . . . . . Thanks peeps ...
