The Most Comfortable Guitar Straps
Striking Beauty - Surprising Comfort
⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
“Made my tank of a Warwick feel like nothing.”
In our world, there isn't a need for 4 inch wide straps stuffed with a pillow's worth of memory foam padding.
If you’ve ever experienced discomfort with a leather or nylon or any fabric guitar strap, you’ve probably done one of the following:
1) Tried a wider strap
2) Tried a padded strap
3) Given up and sit while playing or even play less!
Even after a wider or more padded strap, it's likely your axe still feels as if it was made from granite.
Want to know why your straps will NEVER be very comfortable?
Because leather, nylon, and other standard guitar strap materials are PLIABLE.
Have you ever tried to put weight on a pliable surface?
Imagine your standard playground swing. Now imagine what it looks like after you sit on it…
Your weight is NOT evenly distributed across the swing.
• Pliable material will always concentrate your guitar’s weight in one location and cause discomfort and/or faster shoulder fatigue.
• Pliable material will always distribute weight inefficiently - limiting your playing time.
• Pliable material will always be uncomfortable, and you have no other options.
What’s a material that is not pliable?
Imagine sitting on a wood swing?
Yeah, it’s surprisingly comfortable. But now imagine it being made out of multiple pieces of wood that conforms to you naturally. It distributes the weight even better.
But how do you make a guitar strap out of wood?
You cut that wood into 59 small pieces and connect them with Teflon treated braided cord that can carry a load of 200lbs.
Small pieces of wood provide the perfect combination of flexibility, firmness, and durability.
Yes, a wood strap weighs about 12oz vs a comparable 6oz leather strap, but that is nothing compared to the efficiency gained by better weight distribution.
Before, your guitar’s weight was being focused on a quarter-sized spot tearing into your shoulder.
Now, your guitar’s weight is spread across a vast area of polished, yet firm, wooden pieces, each equally sharing the weight, as they mold over your shoulder.
You SEE the difference. Now it’s time to FEEL the difference.
Are Revo Guitar Straps Comfortable?
Yes! The solid wood pieces actually distribute the weight of your axe better compared to pliable materials such as leather and nylon.
But don't take our word for it! Check out what others are saying below:
⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ “A very attractive compliment to my Les Paul. As you may be aware, the typical Les Paul is pretty heavy. I have a bad back, so needless to say I look for any help I can find to make playing more comfortable. This strap lays the weight evenly across the shoulders so it gives me as much comfort that a strap can provide. I really like the way it looks.”
⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ “The rosewood strap is even better looking than the photos show. More importantly, it is super comfortable!”
⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ “I have four Revo straps and they are by far the most comfortable straps on the market. Of course their beauty is a major selling point, but the comfort of having a strap which disperses the weight of the instrument evenly makes it worth every penny.”
⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ “I am a professional jazz guitarist and own many Revo straps of varying models. The craftsmanship, visual appeal and comfort are of A-1 quality.”
⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ “I love it and highly recommend the straps as it is very comfortable and exotic looking.”
⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ “I've been using wooden straps for 16 years. Play 3 to 5 times a week. Never have sore shoulders or back. One strap for each bass.”
⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ “Excellent craftsmanship and very comfortable”
Who is Team Revo?
We started handcrafting guitar straps from wood over 20 years ago.
From humble beginnings to Carlos Santana wearing our strap in the music video Smooth and on the cover of Rolling Stone.
As recent as 5 years ago, it was impossible to find a wood guitar strap without knowing the right people.
Revo Guitar Straps was formed to create cohesive brand for these amazing wooden guitar straps.
We are part of the Revo Nation, specifically formed to keep these straps in circulation in the U.S. and now internationally.
Musicians like Jakob Takos (and now our photographer) discovered his first wooden guitar strap when he found one at an estate sale 15 years ago.
We consider ourselves a "musician's" brand. We are not the focus. The product and its usefulness are our focus. The musicians that wear them are our focus.
