I'm curious about others opinions on the DeJacques saxophone straps. I've been using them since the late 1990's and love them. I don't know how long they've been around but I would guess since the 1970's anyway. I love the feel of the thinner soft cloth-like weaved strap on my neck. The clasp is ingenious and has never failed me. I like being able to hold my sax up with the neck over my shoulder where the strap kind of hangs loosely without having to worry if the hook has fallen off when I go back to play. Its also great for quick changes when doing pit orchestra work or in other doubling situations. I'm also a big fan of the slider mechanism which seems to never slip.
Am I just biased because I've used this strap exclusively for so many years or have I just missed the boat by not trying other straps?
