David Nay's straps are absolutely the best you can buy. I don't know David personally, but he came highly recommended by a close friend. I am blown away by the quality of his workmanship. I guess that's what you can expect from someone who has spent his whole life making horse saddles and leather goods. I had a friend draw a very complex custom design and David recreated it onto a strap, including every detail. The leather is super high quality, and it's lined on the inside with soft glove leather for comfort. Both the strap and the liner leather are tough enough to last multiple lifetimes, but at the same time are soft enough to be comfortable without years of break-in time. I know this probably sounds like a sales pitch, but I really have no vested interest in David's business... He's just that good. I want to see you all get as good of a strap as I have now :). I recommend the sewn loop ends, as there are no metal parts to damage any part of the banjo.
