Who Wears Revo Guitar Straps?
We could talk all day about the quality and unique look and feel of Revo Guitar Straps. However, the biggest compliment we can get is when a fan raves about our products.
We don't pay for product endorsements, so when some of the biggest names and best guitarists choose Revo, it is quite flattering.
When you're wearing a Revo, you're in good company!
Take a look at some artists who proudly wear Revo Guitar Straps:

Remember the "Smooth" music video with Rob Thomas and Santana? Carlos is wearing yet another style of Solano throughout that video. Click here to watch it on YouTube.
Now we'd like to tell you that Carlos Santana is a personal friend or someone we are affiliated with, but that's not the case. We think Carlos just knows a good thing when he sees it, which is why he wears a Revo guitar strap.
Santana isn't the only artist who has discovered Revo. Check out this list of other artists that use our straps:
Zac has worn our straps for years (Revo Cocobolo Strap shown above), appearing on stage at the CMA’s, many of his live shows, Crossroads with Jimmy Buffett, and in music videos wearing our straps.
