strap button

Post by Sgt. Vimes on Sun May 05, 2013 7:13 am

Anyone ever find an accurate button replacement? I've searched around but cant seem to find one the same.
I dont want to replace both with a standard pair or straplocks as I rather like the Westone buttons, my strap NEVER slips off these.

Never had to find a replacement. But I think a lot depends on the strap material and thickness, etc., rather than the button, in most cases. But the Westie buttons do seem to have a larger diameter, which can only help.

I'm a relatively recent convert to Strap locks.
Never used 'em back in the day when the potential for guitars crashing to the ground during a gig was much higher. Embarassed Instead, developed the habit which I still employ today, of never taking both hands completely off the guitar. I never completely rely on the strap.

Still, strap locks are now pretty much standard equipment. Particularly as my grip is less secure now with the arthritis creeping in.

I usually get THESE from Axes'r'us. Perfect for replacing all the buttons missing from my Thunders.
