BANJO LEATHER STRAPS
Over the 20 years that I have been playing banjo I have always wanted to find a good strap that would help me play with greater comfort and reduce the ache on my shoulder. Not finding anything that suits me I have now designed my own, all-leather, banjo strap to give me everything that I have been looking for. After testing the prototype these last six months, we at Banjolit are proud to introduce three different sizes to fit different shoulder shapes. You can choose from Special, Custom or Classic design. See below for which style will suit you best.

Sourced in the Czech Republic, all our banjo straps are 3.5mm thick and made from “double bend” leather cut from the highest quality part of the skin. Manufactured to our specifications with traditional and natural tanning techniques.
SPECIAL LEATHER BANJO STRAP is made with a wider section designed to support the weight on the top of the shoulder and just behind it. We took the idea from the straps on heavy camera bags used by professional photographers. To get the best fit you should make sure that the wider section is in the correct place and then set up the banjo position.
CUSTOM LEATHER BANJO STRAP has the same wider section as the Special strap, but it is customized for those players who have a large collarbone. We have shaped the bend so that it is straighter at the front to take the weight and pressure of the collarbone. To get the best fit you should make sure that the wider section is in the correct place and then set up the banjo position.
CLASSIC LEATHER BANJO STRAP is the same size as our Special and Custom straps and is for players who prefer the classic design. It is straight, without the wider section, but it has a very good width to provide comfort and support.
