Recently received my second Sully strap - vintage leather, curved shoulder strap.  This is my 2nd purchase from him.  These vintage straps are beautiful and he's just GREAT to work with!  Fast shipping, good communication!  I wouldn't purchase straps anywhere else!  Can't say enough good things about this shop!

JT's Pix Snark Adapter: JT's Pix Snark Adapter

After reading some great reviews about this Snark adapter which relocates the Snark tuner from the peghead to the tenion hooks, I decided to try it.  It arrived last night and snapped right onto my Bishline!  Keeps the peghead clear and the banjo looks cleaner with this tuner relocated.  Great idea!  Simple design.  Snapped on in seconds!

Straps: Sully's Straps

I ordered a vintage style strap with a curved shoulder pad. This strap is beautiful and very soft leather! Looks great on my new Bishline. He also rushed it for me so it arrived within a few days of receiving my new banjo. Pat was great to work with. I would definitely buy from him again if I ever need another strap. I've gotten quite a few compliments on this strap.

* One night after my lesson, I was showing off my new banjo to a couple of friends... Neither of them paid any attention to my banjo but they couldn't take their hands off of that strap! I had to give them Sully's contact info.

Picks: blue chip jd thumb pick

Submitted by TNBanjoGirl on 8/4/2012

Where Purchased: www.bluechippicks.net

VERY comfortable! I like the location and length of the pick point and I really like the way this thumb pick comes off of the strings. I actually tried this pick because my thumb picks kept getting scratchy (often after only 2 days) and I was going through them like crazy. (I had previously been using plastic Dunlops and Zookies.) The Blue Chip was pretty expensive compared to my old plastic ones (paid almost $50 with shipping) but if this picks lasts a year, it will be well worth the money. I am very impressed with it so far! Best thumb pick I have ever tried!

Picks: Saddle thumb picks

Submitted by TNBanjoGirl on 8/4/2012

I tried this thumb pick because it looked more comfortable than my old plastic ones. However, I could not get this adjusted to fit my thumb snugly without rotating and moving around. The pick point was too far back on my thumb so I really had to wear this pick at the very tip of my thumb and it just did not fit me correctly in that location. Also, I kept snagging part of it on the strings. After adjusting this pick many times and trying different picking styles, I went back to my old picks. This just did not work well for me.
