The 1” strap secures the dulcimer and is comfortable as well.
I use the 1” straps on my dulcimer. The leather attachments for the buckles help keep the hard plastic from damaging the wood surface. The quick release buckles are an added convenience. These are my favorite straps.
I love the Folkcraft Dulcimer strap. I have short, fat legs & it's difficult to keep my legs parallel to the floor. Even with the "sticky pads", I spent most of my time trying to keep the dulcimer from sliding off my lap. Not a problem any more with the strap! And I like the quick release so I can remove the strap easily when putting it into the case. The strap is well made & attractive with the leather ends.
The strap arrived --thinner than I thought it would be, though it worked as intended. I really liked how the strap made my instrument easy to remove. It's super convenient and I'll definitely buy more if I need to someday.
The strap was simple to install and makes it so much easier to hold and play the instrument during rehearsal, practice...and that oh so important performance!
