The abstract patterns of these funky woven guitar straps have a distinct traditional feel with beautiful color combinations that are reminiscent of the 60’s and 70’s.

Canada (April 21, 2016) -- Perri’s are delighted to introduce their new Hootenanny Guitar Straps. These retro straps, made by craftsmen that bought guitarists the wicked Full Air Brushed Strap, have been created with the high degree of attention to artistic design, detail, and comfort that has come to be expected from the company.

Hootenanny is a Scottish word meaning celebration or party that has become a colloquialism in the Appalachian region of the US where many of the settlers were originally Scots. These days it commonly refers to an open mic folk music party where the audience often joins in. The abstract patterns of these funky woven guitar straps have a distinct traditional feel with beautiful color combinations that are reminiscent of the 60’s and 70’s.

Made in Canada, the Hootenanny Guitar Straps straps are 2” wide and fully adjustable from 39” to 58.

The striking, ethnic, geometric patterns of the jacquard woven fabric used in the straps comes in ten different colour ways; plenty to chose from for any discerning guitar player. The fabrics high tread count makes if hard wearing whilst its soft texture makes it extremely comfortable to use. The 5oz premium belt leather ends provide a safe and secure fit to most guitars.

But we’ve all been there … where after a month that new guitar is just not playing as good as it was before. As guitar players, we know what feels good and what feels bad when it comes to playability. Maybe you have setup preferences that you like on all your guitars, or maybe you want to experiment with changes to your setup?
