Harrison Mandolin Strap
Hand Tooled Leather, F-5 Style, Made in U.S.A., New, Vintage Brown or Black
Here we have a Genuine Harrison Mandolin Strap, designed with the musician in mind, carefully crafted, by hand! Made in the U.S.A!
These straps are hand cut from the finest leather. Hand tooled… Hand Antique Finish…. Hand Stitched… Simply The Best!
If there is a special mandolin player you know (or are!) this might be the perfect Christmas present. I was not familiar with Mr. Harrison until he called me out of the blue one day looking for a Cumberland Acoustic Mandolin Bridge, which is something we make. We worked out a trade and I got some of his awesome straps in a trade deal. I was blown away! Like many of you, I have been searching for the “perfect” mandolin strap for years. Well, my friends, I feel I have found it. Hopefully, you will feel the same way!
Now for some specifications…
These straps have an overall length of about 48″, with endpin slots/holes at approximately 41″, 43″, 45″, and 47″. They are a comfortable 3/4″ wide and about 3/32″ thick. These straps are very smooth and supple, not stiff at all. They can wind up into a fairly tight circle for storing in your case with no problem at all. Even the inside of the strap has a nice smooth, burnished finish to it. This is a very well-thought-out mandolin strap.
Notice from the pictures that there is a loop at one end of this strap. This is the classic strap mounting method for F-style mandolins that have a scroll on the body. This is the type of mandolin this strap was designed for. Mr. Harrison also hand stamps a serial number into each strap that he makes (see picture) so each and every strap he makes is unique!
Just because someone is bound to ask… NO mandolin is included in this listing. Just this top-quality, U.S.-made mandolin strap that I have been telling you about. Isn’t that enough!?!
Oh, one last thing… I recently got more of these awesome straps in stock. I even got a couple of BLACK ones this time around. If you are more interested in a black strap, just let me know when you place your order. Also, I can send you pictures if you like. Brown or black, you can’t go wrong with a Harrison Mandolin Strap!

Cheers to you and your team!! Excellent work! I couldn't be happier with everything. Neck finish looks killer and playability is on another level! Truly inspiring. I cannot thank you enough.TY STEVENS, CUSTOMER FOR LIFE
I cannot say enough good things about The X. It is infinitely playable, easy to look at and very pleasing to the ear. If I ever got any actual playing skill, I could probably take over the world with this thing. Thank You Sir.DON SIMPSON
I have been lucky enough to spend some time at Steve’s shop playing several of his reso’s. Man these guitars are great. The construction is impeccable and the tone and volume are as good as it gets on the custom front. These guitars will surely be flooding the scene as soon as people get to hear them. I own a E model beard but my next purchase will be one of Steve’s guitars. If you get the chance don’t pass them up.TUCK TUCKER
The mandolin came in yesterday and I just got it from the office today. This is an outstanding instrument. The sound is even more than I expected from the videos online. I haven’t gotten a chance to play it a whole lot but the more and more I play, the better I like it. You and your crew are very talented in this art and business you run at making great high quality instruments at a darn good price. Will report back after some much anticipated playing time. Have a good one.JESSE RAMIREZ
Traveler #25 is a masterpiece, truly the “Presidential Model.” It arrived safely via USPS, rested overnight, and awakened today. Where do I begin? The woods are beautiful, and the finish and binding bring out their character. It sparkles. The binding, by the way, is extraordinary. Gold hardware complements the woods and finish, and the scalloped tailpiece lends itself perfectly to the shape of the mandolin. It is an aesthetic celebration. The tone is phenomenal, and the low, easy setup allows me to bring out the tone as if the instrument were already played in, that’s how refined it is already. When you mentioned that it is very easy to play you understated it: the radiused fretboard and setup give it an effortless feel. I love the way that #25 nestles in my hand; I need to look to see that it’s really there. Traveler #25 embodies the Zen of mandolin playing, and you are the Zen Master. Thanks, Steve, for your creation.DR. FRED SAVITZ
The little Traveler has arrived. Wow! It is so small for producing such a GREAT sound. I must say it leaves my Weber Y2K standing in the dust . I tried a couple of dozen different pick weights and materials till I adopted a couple that seem to work best with the Traveler and, as fortune would have it, my old Tone Guard fits her like a glove. Superb job Steve. The frets are quite nice. Top nut to tailpiece. She sings so sweetly. AND I believe you will find a niche with the celtic crowd as the Traveler just loves to play fast and Irish or Scottish. I am so glad I chose the satin finish and the gold clamshell tailpiece. It’s understated and elegant. I am highly happy and my wife likes it too. It was ‘the sound’ that originally drew us to the instrument. Now that I have one, it still is the sound. How wonderful. As we go along I will have some other requests.
I’ll ask you about them later. Thank you for the gift and extra strings. Take care Steve and thanks again. Your friend Bruce.
