Uke Thong® Ukulele Strap - Free Uke On Board Sticker
Materials: polyester, brass
COMFORTABLE STRAP / BARREL STYLE SLIDER / BLACK HOOK STRAP
THE ORIGINAL UKE THONG®
NO HARD PLASTIC HOOK TO SCRATCH THE SOUND HOLE OF YOUR UKE!
NO BUCKLE TO SCRATCH YOUR UKE!
This adjustable cord lock ukulele strap is light and comfortable. It is made for a uke - NOT a retrofitted guitar strap! (The sound hole hook on a guitar strap is too thick, and tends to buzz against a soprano ukulele first string.) The sound hole hook is padded with the webbing to protect your instrument. Hook into sound hole and place the webbing under the waist of the instrument. For Pineapples, Flukes and Fleas, run the webbing forward, parallel with the fretboard, and then behind the neck. I am a uke player and make these by hand. Please look at my feedback to see comments from happy Uke Thong purchasers.
Here is a very talented customer using a Uke Thong: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nisc5F5Gf90 Note how the right forearm against the lower bout frees up the left hand for more elegant playing. And here is a nice review: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RY67QzTJJ5A
HERE IS A VARIATION: Unlike most ukulele sound hole straps, Uke Thong straps are long enough for most people to use across the chest (under one arm), rather than around the neck.
UPON REORDERING, A SATISFIED CUSTOMER SAYS: I received my 1st Uke Thong today and it is really excellent, far better than anything else on the market - now I need one for each of my ukuleles! Many thanks Simon

Great- Perfect- Awesome!!! more superlatives?!?!? I have a beautiful Kamaka Uke but have always been challenged with pinning the soprano size against my body comfortably while standing to play--almost always resulting in me needing to sit down for leg support. I've tried SO many other products that didn't require putting pins/holes into my Uke, none compare. Seller was fast to ship, meticulous packing, and LOVED the extras thrown in so much, I ordered more. Great Seller, Excellent product.
My ukulele students and I love everything about the Uke Thong. It's made from quality materials, is well-designed, functions perfectly, and is comfortable to wear. And any questions were promptly answered by the seller. Recommended! Velma Frye
This is perfect! -- I bought two, this one and same with paracord. Minimalist design, don't want focus to be on the strap! Had a hard time finding a ukulele strap that wasn't wide (and overkill, ukes are pretty lightweight). Secure button to adjust length, and I like that the sound hole hook is covered, so no scratching of my lovely tenor.
My wife and I just bought two of these (one for her soprano and one for my tenor). They're a quality product and we highly recommend getting them whether you are a beginner or a more serious player. Although the veteran might need a little time getting used to them and not having to hold their uke so tight, once you get used to it you will be amazed at how much more freedom you have fretting your chords up the neck. n nInitially I had some concern having read that someone felt that using it would noticeably diminish the sound. Any time you insert something into the sound hole, there is a slight loss, but we are so glad that we bought them. Personally I don't think it has negatively affected anything, noticeable. Besides, when you consider that any minor loss is offset by the gain of not holding your use so tightly against your body. Now it can vibrate and emanate more sound naturally as a result :) n nHell, these are good enough for Jake Shimabukuro, so who am I to argue? They're very handy to have and simple to use. Although I highly recommend them if you stand and play, this is also nice for newcomers to get used to proper height placement when holding a Uke. We love them. n nOn the business end our communication with Chuck was excellent, his responses were quick and friendly and the shipping was unbelievably fast. n nNever thought I would be caught dead wearing a thong of any kind ;) Boy was I wrong! Thanks again so much!
