The Pinegrove Harmonica Bandolier is made using the highest quality full grain vegetable-tanned leather. It's 2mm thick, with a 3.5mm thick strap. After tanning, the leather has been drum-softened to give flexibility and raise its beautiful natural grain. Every piece is different.
The Pinegrove Harmonica Bandolier is designed to hold for 10-hole diatonic blues harmonicas. Choose your number of pockets in the options. The pockets are sized to hold any straight harps, from Crossovers to Lee Oskars. We've even managed to squeeze in a huge Huang Star Perfomer**. The pockets hold your harps quite tight at first, but after a day or two the pockets form themselves to the shape of your harps and it becomes easier to pull the harps out. The pockets still remain tight enough to hold the harps so they don't fall out easily, even if you hold the bandolier upside down. In short, we've experimented and got the leather and the pocket size just right.
The back strap on the bandolier is 40mm wide (just over 1 1/2"), fitted with a interchangeable plate buckle. The total length range is 136-152cm (52-60"), suitable for most people. This long length allows the bandolier to lie against your hip and look pretty damn cool. Let us know if you need the strap longer or shorter.
The Pinegrove Harmonica Bandolier has an original design with comfort in mind. The angled ends and large solid brass D-rings allow the bandolier to curve around your shoulder and hip naturally. This makes for a really comfortable fit, whatever your body shape. When you are not playing, the bandolier can be folded or rolled up with your harps intact.
