Almost every dulcimer player at one time or another has discovered the “fun” of strumming an instrument that slowly slides off the lap or suddenly pivots like a seesaw. Playing during such a moving experience can be difficult, to say the least.
These quick-release dulcimer straps are just the ticket to keep your dulcimer from falling off your lap. Fully adjustable, they fit just about any lap or dulcimer size. They are 1 inch wide with a standard maximum length of about 52 inches and extra large about 70 inches.
The strap can go either under your legs or behind your back. They are not designed for standing with your dulcimer suspended from your shoulders. Putting the strap under your legs provides the best stability for your instrument; it can’t slip forward or seesaw even if you play with your knees touching.
