Thread: Shout out for Ronny Harrison straps

    Default Shout out for Ronny Harrison straps

    I just received a Ronny Harrison strap that I ordered through the Northfield store. Iíve always found it difficult to find guitar and mando straps that I really love, but I donít need to look any further. This strap is great ó just a simple thin strap of supple, substantial-feeling, tastefully stamped high quality leather. It fits perfectly around the headstock of my A style Northfield. Itís small enough that it tucks right into the case with my mando. A bit more expensive than the straps hanging on the rack at Guitar Center, but well worth it ó this thing seems made to last as long as my mandolin.

    I got one directly from him that is the same as what Northfield sells, very very nice. I love the look and the feel of it.

    Here’s a photo from a site, nice, these are Ronny’s straps, I believe.
    The question I’d ask, though, is what’s with the wear on the guitar under the strings -someone practices without strings?
    Probably a simple answer...

    A strap that is perfect for you is a wonderful thing. I have a bootlace for my A 1 that is just right for that mandolin, then there is a Bailey for my SA. Two very different takes on what a strap should be.


    The simple answer is Bluegrass.

    I need a new strap for my old Gibson, thanks for the recommendation. With all consideration to Northfield, who I understand make fine instruments, I would rather not advertise a product that I don't use. And the Harrison straps they sell seem to have the Northfield logo on them.

    Banjo Ben's site has the straps for the same price, sans logo. So I ordered one there. With my luck he has his logo plastered on them too.

    Yeah, it looks like he supplies the same strap to various companies stamped with their logos. Mine looks like the one pictured above, and Iíve seen the same thing on Banjo Benís site and elsewhere. I think youíll like it. I was surprised how difficult it was to find a simple, well-made leather strap to replace my home-made one.
