    Very good alternative!

    I ordered a few weeks ago on the site "etsy". Dark brown (style cooking) with a white line for € 38.60 (25.73 + 11.35 pdf, no tax). For each product, shipping you pay extra, but the more you buy, and they are reduced.

    Received 4 days after purchase, in an envelope inside bubble wrap (good enough), with a sticker on the Couch mark, a "map" that shows pictures as the company stating "handmade in California", and invoice with a pretty funny buffer and a handwritten "thank blabla" message (perhaps because they do not usually ship in France? .. the country was highlighted in neon and 2fois stressed on the invoice .. xD)

    In short, the service level of purchase, no complaints. What followed …

    In short, the service level of purchase, no complaints. What followed that number would have been handy in case there would be a problem .. Delivery Finally, it would have cost me much more expensive.

    Back to the product! The adjustment is the shortest in 95cm, and the longest .. It's almost my size, so j'dirais about 1m80-90. The color is exactly the pictures on the website, all is finished. No unpleasant odor, and the friction on a guitar does not make (jm'en serve on the famous Gibson Explo cellulose varnish, it is to say.)

    The little "flat" to me is the loops at fasteners, and setting that are plastic. I would have preferred metal, but in fact: it was not safe for the guitar.

    In short, to see his life in time. But for what I as a product there, I tell myself that I should take a 2nd passage.

    Elegant & reliable

    Couch Racer X StrapPublished on 12/27/12 at 09:50

    Strap vinyl manufacturing American made from 25% recycled materials from various sources (sofas - domestic cars ...) and green plastic.

    Information on the brand's website:
    'The end tabs are made of 3 layers of vinyl (auto upholstery, sofa and marine) and inside the room is a glass fiber reinforcement, inserts plant material. The hind leg has 3 stainless steel rivets machined by hand. '

    I have a Fender nylon strap that goes very well but begins to fray at the shoulder and neck with the time, the more I was forced to install the strap-locks because ' attachment holes' were distorted and tend to get easily even on U.S. ties PRS straps. So I booked for a guitar with strap-locks fastener…

    Strap vinyl manufacturing American made from 25% recycled materials from various sources (sofas - domestic cars ...) and green plastic.

    'The end tabs are made of 3 layers of vinyl (auto upholstery, sofa and marine) and inside the room is a glass fiber reinforcement, inserts plant material. The hind leg has 3 stainless steel rivets machined by hand. '

    I have a Fender nylon strap that goes very well but begins to fray at the shoulder and neck with the time, the more I was forced to install the strap-locks because ' attachment holes' were distorted and tend to get easily even on U.S. ties PRS straps. So I booked for a guitar with strap-locks fasteners.

    I had to acquire a U.S. PRS guitar originally equipped with very large attachments nécessitants straps do not have to be changed for strap-locks as long as the strap is new and well designed.

    Look Series Racer X is based on racing cars of the 60s.
    The strap is both visually unobtrusive and present.
    I model White w / Orange and other colors are also available, all very nice if you like the genre racing.
    ATTENTION: The models are made with some recycled material are in limited quantities.

    Incomparable with my Fender strap € 17.
    Once installed the strap on the guitar quickly with confidence, we feel that it did not get going and the fastener tabs will last.
    The strap is a good width (aesthetics and comfort) and relieves back nicely although it is far from a model like Santana, George Benson or SRV.
    Vinyl is also nice as involved in Thurs dressed shirtless, it is soon forgotten, flexible and slides just enough (2 months of use).
    Link setting as well as the strap that connects the tongue back is plastic plant and seems pretty solid. (Couch also offers models with leather links are metal).
    I was a little afraid that the 3 steel rivets that hold the tongue touching behind the rear edge of the guitar but no. However, this is a detail to check if you are considering this an archtop guitar strap.

    The strap is very long, it will allow you to keep your bass as Simon Gallup at the knees.
    I had to be shortened a good 40ène CM to not have the link set on the front, but I want my guitar loud enough, not like Tom Morello either! For it must go to a shoemaker, designers do not have a machine with these materials with the same thickness.
    Note that it is easily cleaned just by going underwater.

    50 € the strap is an investment, or a nice gift.
    However, the look, comfort and build quality are waiting for you.
    I do not regret this purchase and I even considered taking another in dark colors.

    These straps are sold between 35 and $ 75 on the website of the brand following the model.
    I contacted the registered mail as it has some very elegant luxury models (leather interior Cadillac - Mercedes ...) I did not find in stores and also wallets pretty but I never received a response .
    I signed up for the newsletter, I received a spam 30ène along with a registration confirmation email.
