Mandolin straps is very important accesory in our practice in music. Some people may raise their eye brows because straps are small. But know what no one could have a concert or play for an hour without feeling a sore or pain in your back if we do not take extra time to take care of it. Well the first one, that I would like to suggest is get a straps for your own good. We may be young now but soon we get old and pain sets in and we don't want that.
