The unique internal control-stretch system used in the Super Strap offers weight reduction comfort for banjo, bass and guitar players. It effectively disperses the weight while absorbing the shock of your movements.
The unique internal control-stretch system used in these straps offers weight reduction comfort unmatched by any other strap. It effectively disperses the weight while absorbing the shock of your movements. The Super Ax Strap™ and Super Bass Strap™ both use top grade leather attachments for a secure hold. The Super Banjo Strap™ uses strong side release buckles which join secure Neo-Loops™ to the main body of the strap. Merely thread the loops through the brackets, pass the side release buckles through the opening and reattach to the main strap. This creates a secure hold which is a snap to attach!

How to attach the Neo Loop Connectors to your Banjo

2. Pass the buckle through the loop.
3. Pull to tighten.
Ordered and received both the mandolin strap and the banjo super strap from Amazon on 5/19/18. I like the engineering behind these straps but both are too long, even when set to minimum length. This is problematic for a shorter person (male, 5' 4"). To get the banjo super strap to work at the proper length I had to knot it three times near the neck. (I will detail the problem with the mandolin strap in the review under that strap). The solution is a shorter removable section that attaches near the neck of the banjo. Neotech's response to a customer with a similar problem (see mandolin strap reviews) was to customized the strap. I have sent a detailed e-mail along with a photo of the strap in to give Neotech some idea of an appropriate length. I'm willing to pay for a shorter customized section as a solution. I hope this works out as I like the strap.
The Super Bass Strap max adjusted length is only 42", not long enough . It really is more comfort though. It will be returned to the store today.
I picked up a "Super Banjo Strap" recently while traveling in Southern Oregon. The Super Banjo Strap is very comfortable and works well with my Vega Old Tyme Wonder.
Newer ones too short (Update to previous review) - Aug 9, 2016 12:43:08 PM
As stated in my previous review, I have had one of these for years and love it so I bought some for every one of my other instruments.
Unfortunately, what I didn't notice until after installing Schaller straplocks on all of them is that the new ones are quite a bit shorter than my old one.
Now I'm stuck with several straps that are too short for my preference. My preference for strap length is to set it so that while standing, the bass is at the same height as when I'm sitting down with the bass on my knee. Even fully extended, these are too short for this. Note that I am of fairly average build (approx. 6'-0" tall and 185 pounds).
Great strap. - Oct 24, 2011 6:36:15 AM
I picked up one of these years ago and have been loving it! Everyone who tries my bass winds up buying one for their own instrument. Super comfortable and less expensive than most leather straps that aren't even comparable in terms of comfort.
Hi Eric, the Super Bass Strap may be too short for your needs. Please look at the Super Ax Strap and see if it may be more suitable for the length you need. The Super Ax adjusts between 42”-53” while the Super Bass adjusts between 33”-42”. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
Do you have the Super Ax Strap with Speed-Lock connectors?
No, the Super Ax Strap uses leather connectors. If you want to use Speed-Lock connectors I would suggest trying the Slimline Strap - Speed-Lock.
Do you sell the loops for the Super Banjo Strap on their own?
Yes, we do sell the Neo-Loops on their own.
I just got the Super Banjo Strap for a very old banjo which may attach to straps in a non-standard way? If the loop on the end of the strap could open, I could slip it under the strings on the neck, which is how I think it attaches (If the loop does open and I missed how, please tell me). On the other end, a small loop goes under the bolt, I think. I can improvise something, but if you make "adapter" pieces, or if I bought the wrong strap, or if there's something I'm missing, I'd sure appreciate the help.
If you take a look at the banjo photo, you can see that the loops are connected to the metal brackets on the banjo. Then if you look at the "Instructions" tab at the bottom of the page, you will find directions on how to attach the loops.
