Perri's Leathers Introduces the Hootenanny Series

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.

While Monolord has no shortage of the dark and heavy, guitarist and vocalist Thomas V Jäger comes at it from a perspective more common to pop songsmiths.

Melodies, hooks, clean tones, and no guitar solos. Are we sure this Elliott Smith fan fronts a doom-metal band? (We’re sure!)

Legend has it the name Monolord refers to a friend of the band with the same moniker who lost hearing in his left ear, and later said it didn’t matter if the band recorded anything in stereo, because he could not hear it anyway. It’s a funny, though slightly tragic, bit of backstory, but that handle is befitting in yet another, perhaps even more profound, way. Doom and stoner metal are arguably the torch-bearing subgenres for hard rock guitar players, and if any band seems to hold the keys to the castle at this moment, it’s Monolord.
