I have tried their headphones and thought to give this a try. I must say that it is far better qulity that the ones at Guitar Center that are priced at 10-24 range. The strap material is thicker than the Ernie Ball basic straps . Very nice strap. Even better Price.
As a gigging guitarist who often has to bring 4 or 5 guitars to performances (different tunings, backups, etc), I don't like the idea of wearing out my strap-ends by switching guitars (on the ones I don't have strap-locks on), and let's face it, some guitars you have to set the height differently and it's not always practical to be adjusting them every time you switch guitars anyway. So here's a practical way to get a good quality strap for a price that allows you to get 3 or 4 for the same price that you'd pay for one or two of a similar quality strap. These have very decent ends on them, and the webbing material feels stout. I ordered two of them, and am likely to order a couple more soon. While I prefer a single color (actually just "black") strap, the grey-black combo used on this one is neutral enough, and unoffensive, and is still a simple, clean looking strap. I'm also a beefy guy (6ft, broad shouldered and barrel-chested), and this strap is long enough for me to position my guitar down as far as I want, maybe even a little lower.
PROS: very well made, lots of usable length, nice feeling material
CONS: would like it in "all black"
There is a reason the lowest rating on this is a "3" and most are a "5". You won't be disappointed!
While I wish MP would offer more color options or design options for this strap, there's NOT a single Guitar Strap manufactured that can hold up to the "quality and comfort" of this one --- NOT at 2.99 --- NO WAY, NO HOW --- PERIOD.
The material is smooth and comfortable, and the ends are so snug on the guitar buttons that it takes some effort to get them on. No strap lock is needed. Not just a great strap for the money, it's a great strap!
