I don't always use a strap on my dulcimers, but when I do the 1" quick release is what I go to. It is easy to hook on and the 1" is enough for stability. The old 2" non quick release strap I used before is now in a box somewhere.
I was very pleased with this purchase. It's just right for my new baritone ukulele. The quick-release is handy for unwinding the strap without having to detach it from the buttons. That being said, I offer, not as a criticism (since I knew this might be an issue based on the product image) the following observation and suggestion: The plastic quick-release piece at the bottom of my uke may rub against the finish of the bottom/side of the instrument. I was able to utilize a separate, leather piece that fits around the end nicely as a buffer. Perhaps you could offer something similar in the future. Thank you for the high-quality strap!
Love this strap and it is just the right size for my smaller dulcimer. Very happy with it.
Fine quality. Just as I expected.
Works well with my dulcimer. Thank you!
