Picture is of Mega Bass Strap Instead of Mega Axe Strap

By KCWebster

from Undisclosed

Comments about Neotech Mega Axe Guitar Strap:

I forgot to mention in my earlier review of this strap, that the picture is actually of the Mega Bass strap, since the front heavy leather tongue in the picture is only 3" rather than the 8" that should be depicted for the Mega Axe strap. It is also a black strap, in case like me, you are seeing a dark brown hue in this particular picture.

Actually, the Mega Axe, Mega Bass and Mega Banjo straps are all the very same with the exception of the front tongue, which is about 8", 3" and 4" respectively, plus the banjo strap has an extra small strap included. You could use any of the three interchangeably, depending on how much distance you want from the shoulder pad to your top post, or depending on how much overall length you need. One thing to keep in mind is that you will also get 2" or 3" more in length simply due to the initial stretch when the strap is supporting the weight of the instrument.

Don't worry though, that initial stretch is about all you'll get, and you won't really notice the subtle additional elasticity while playing. See my earlier review for more in-depth discussion of the strap, elasticity, etc... (I also posted a review under the Mega Bass strap that might offer additional perspective.)

Excellent Strap For Heavy Bass and Longer than the Mega Bass strap

By KCWebster

from Undisclosed

Comments about Neotech Mega Axe Guitar Strap:

This is a great strap for a heavy bass, or any other guitar, as far as that goes. It is ultra-comfortable on the shoulder and nicely distributes the pressure over the wider width, both sideways and from front to back. The leather ends are very thick and are actually a lot longer than what you typically see on other straps. (From the front it looks like you have a full length heavy leather strap with a wide shoulder pad.)

After some study, I decided to buy the Mega Axe Strap rather than the Mega Bass Strap, to get the extra length between my bass and the shoulder pad, which turned out be a good move. The axe strap has a fixed 8" leather tongue compared to a fixed 3" one on the bass strap. The bass strap is also shorter overall by that same 5" difference in the tongue length, and I knew I wanted the full 56" rather than the 51". (I wear my bass more vertical, and subsequently a bit lower than the typical on-your-chest horizontal style.)

Once you hang your Axe over your shoulder, you will discover that the strap is actually now two or three inches longer than you thought, due to the initial stretch, however, any additional stretching is not noticeable once it is on. I was concerned that the guitar might be bouncing around as if suspended by bungee-cords, but that hasn't been the case, at all. That initial stretch does mean that you will wind up setting your strap length about 3 inches shorter than you have been used to, but once you get it right, it will be right the next time you put it on and thereafter, just like a non-stretching strap would be.

If I have any complaints it is that the neoprene pad can get pretty hot to wear in a warmer situation, but that is pretty much the story with any strap, really. Also, I am often shirtless when playing around the house, so I discovered that the neoprene is a tiny bit courser feeling on the skin. However, I did come up with a good solution to both issues by simply sewing on a sleeve made out of a cotton bandana, which is both cooler and smoother on the skin. It does get wet over long playing sessions, but the sweat is going to be there in any case, so the cotton actually absorbs it and then quickly dries out when I take a break.

I highly recommend this strap to anyone that is looking for some relief from the weight of their instrument. It won't make the guitar lighter, but it will definitely make you think it did, and your shoulder will let you play far longer without the need for a break.

Tame the beast

By Jeff Underwood

from Great Bend, Kansas

Comments about Neotech Mega Axe Guitar Strap:

Took it out of the box and ran to a four hour stand-up rehearsal for a variety show. My DeArmond M-72 "Bluesbird" really did feel about half as heavy, even after the long rehearsal. Very comfortable and it doesn't slide around on your shoulder. Only problem I had was getting the ends over the strap buttons the first few times. That's probably a good thing because I don't use straplocks. I also have the bass version. This will work for most guitars, but it is too short for basses.

Guitar Strap Barkalounger

By Rick-eJ2Qe

from New Orleans,LA

Comments about Neotech Mega Axe Guitar Strap:

If you have a HEAVY guitar (Les Paul, ES335, Precision Bass, etc) this will fix 3 hour gig-shoulder torture. Even better than 4" wide soft leather. (I tried both). If you combine this with a straplock, you've got a winner. Only complaint - most straps fold easily and fit inside the storage door of your guitar case. This one does not fold flat enough. ( Just put it in your chord bag )

Neotech Guitar Strap

By Wilson Roberts

from Boise, ID

Comments about Neotech Mega Axe Guitar Strap:

Great strap and extremely comfortable. I've been using 4" guitar straps for years, and they can be very hard to find. The Neo Tech strap is a tapered comfort strap. 4" where it needs to be and slim to follow body lines. Very nice looking as well. I have 2 of them at this time and will be getting more of them for my other guitars. Highly recommended! I
