Used one live recently, very nice. Much more comfy than my trusty leather strap. Didn't have a problem with my neck heavy basses. Thanks for the feedback on this product, mga tol. Might get another one soon.

nangyari kahapon, nasa lap ko yung guitar(rear side facing me), inaadjust ko yung strap ng hindi sinasadyang mabitiwan ko,
yung metal hardware in between ng padded at yung may logo na mono tumama sa likod ng guitar ko hehe buti na lang mahina yung "boink"  :lol:

ingat na lang  :lol:

Hi guys, how's the MONO strap handling your guitars' weight distribution? I'm thinking about getting a couple because they seem to be comfortable. Thanks :)

wala naman halos pinagkaiba sa planet wave kung sa weight distribution,
mas masarap lang yung feel sa shoulder dahil padded  :lol:

parang sa mga bagpacks  :lol:

Malaki difference since I shifted to MONO. I was using a Fender monogram strap on a Fernando Les Paul. My guitar is REALLY heavy! Laging sumasakit balikat ko when I was using the monogram strap. But when I shifted to MONO, mejo strain sa shoulders ko. Probably because of the pads on the MONO.

Hmm last question... Can you make the strap really short? I strap my guitar very high (just below the chest area) for maximum wrist comfort. Kaya bang maikli talaga? Seems like medyo mahaba kasi yung strap based on the pictures. Thanks :)

the ones i have in stock can only go up to 45" (a bit long for those who strap their guitar quite high), although since madami naghahanap nung shorter version (40" - 46"), oorder na ko next week yun nga lang i'll limit it to the Sharkskin Black model.

Ian.. they can be pretty short man! Pretty comfy if youre gonna be playing for a while. But I wouldnt recommend them for an out door gig. It can get really hot. Its comparable to wearing a leather strap. If youre ok with that the strap is perfect. I just prefer nylon for outdoor gigs kase grabe yung pawis ko.

(But mono is waterproof so it wont destroy the strap).

i was able to test my ultra suede (smoke) in a live setting for the first time last Saturday.  i used it on my strat. 

some findings (all positive!  no negative comments here!  :lol:):
- i literally didn't feel the weight of my strat on my shoulder.
- the guitar was secure.  i didn't feel the need for strap locks to reinforce the strap buttons.
- i was all sweaty that night, but it didn't seep into the strap.  the neoprene (thanks jeff!) didn't absorb the sweat and didn't make the strap smell funky or anything.  it was like having a dry-fit shirt on.

overall...the experience was just EPIC.  thanks again jeff!  :-)

1st review--
I have my Monocase last May 21 delivered by jeff @ the office. And have it 1st gig that night. It was vey comfy and my guitar is very well safe. Nung nasagi ng ka-banda ko ung case na nasa loob pa ung gitara sabi ba naman "Ok lang yan MONO naman:-D medyo bulky lang ung case pagmag-cocommute.

2nd review--
another thing i like about monocase paggamit ko ung motor ko at nadadaan ko siya sa mga rough roads nandun pa din ung support ng case sa gitara..ok pa din ung tension at ung height ng neck..konting tune lang ready to fight na ulit.  :-)

3rd review--
last thurs nagkaroon kami ng praktis napasabak naman sa ulan ung case... :-o office to praktis studio(riding to my motorbike), una naisip ko baka pasukin ng ulan ung loob...well para ma-test ko ung waterproof power ng case ayun! sinabak ko na. hehehe!! well i was amaze nung nakita ko di naman basa ung loob, medyo malamig lang ung simoy ng loob. hinanap ko kung may basa...ala naman akong nakita. iniisip ko isabak ulit sa matinding pagsubok kaso wag muna ngayon. hehe!!

I bought MONO from Jeff two weeks ago.  Nalimutan ko anong model yung binili ko Jeff.  And like you said, medyo mahirap nga maglagay ng strap lock. 

I've used it last Wednesday for an all night jam with the boys.  Gaan ng LP ko, its like playing my Strat using my old planetwaves strap.  Problem lang medyo may pawis sa shoulders.  Sana may dri fit na MONO strap  :-D

i just got one tonight :) it isn't as bulky as i thought.. the padding is really good. the foam doesn't feel as soft as those typical foam upholstery. i like the fabric interior which keeps your guitar from getting scratched. accessories compartment's great. seems like an attention to detail was really put in this product. exterior looks tough against weather conditions (choxter proved this :) ).

the material of the straps are similar to that of the north face bags. matibay to. sobrang compact ang weaving. the guitar does not actually lie flat on the surface if the interior. it's slightly inclined due to the next support padding which is a little above 2" high..but i guess this gets lower in time. rest assured the guitar's safe inside.

i actually let the case with a guitar inside stand and pushed it softly so it'd fall to the floor. na curious kasi ako hehe..carpeted naman yung floor hehe..parang may solid lang (floor) na tumama sa padding..guitar's ok! then i tried to let it fall sideways hehehe..ok pa rin! so there, i think sulit. kung mga konting sagi sagi lang, ayus lang. pag na sagi to ng tao at bumagsak sa sahig, ayus lang (wag lang lagi) :)

i think the handle on the side should be placed a little more higher..para pag hawak mo, balanced na balanced ang weight. the shoulder straps could also use more padding as i felt a little strain pag nakasabit lang on one shoulder. mas walang strain if the pads are thicker. sg pa yung nilagay ko. magaan lang.

thanks jeff :D get yours now guys hehe :D pasensya medyo sabog ang review.
