Why we use nubuck leather on the back of our padded guitar straps

21 Jun 2023

If you want suede or smooth leather on the back of your new Pinegrove strap then we can make it for you, but our standard nubuck cowhide performs much better all round. Here's why.


Suede grips too much, so it pulls your shirt when you want to adjust your playing angle.

Smooth leather grips not enough, so you find yourself holding your guitar in position at the same time as you're playing.

Nubuck holds your guitar where you want it, but makes it easy to shift when you  need to.
