Who Wears Revo Guitar Straps?
Obviously, we could talk all day about the quality and unique look of Revo Guitar Straps. However, don't just take our word for it.
One of the biggest compliments is when some of the biggest names and best guitarists choose Revo guitar straps.
So let's take a look at some artists who proudly sport Revo straps:
Few guitarists are revered like Carlos Santana. In his Rolling Stone cover shot from 2000, Santana was wearing our Revo Solano guitar strap:
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 I'd like to tell you that Carlos Santana is a personal friend or someone we are affiliated with, but that's not the case. I 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 (Cocobolo Revo 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. Zac’s custom Taylor has worn the Revo Spyder strap for years and is his main stage rig. Zac is one of the top country touring acts. Zac Brown Band has won numerous awards such as CMA’s, ACM’s, etc.
