The Slinger by Bison Boa CUSTOM is a 4-inch-wide vintage styled pro guitar strap that is fully sourced and crafted completely in the UK from the finest available materials in order to create a mojo-heavy strap that feels great and looks better as time passes.
Your strap is made entirely from rugged Cornish cowhides pit tanned by Thomas Ware & Sons (est. 1840) in Bristol, England. This ultra-premium British heritage, full-grain, leather is still voluntarily tanned the old way for no less than ‘a year and a day’ under a quality law that was abolished in 1850.
The fully premium UK build extends to the stonewashed solid buckle and metal hardware hand-poured under a Royal Warrant at the Abbey Foundry (est.1832), the last brass foundry in England.
The Slinger comes in a range of proprietary colours which you won’t find elsewhere. Raw natural hides are micro-finished in the workshop with our own dyes and custom Formula 9 wax to create patina rich aesthetics that show through variable colour tones, unique grain, scars and imperfections. Go for a unique dyed colour finish or add your story to the Natural Oiler, primed to patina and darken with your use.
The character of the top surface is matched with our own hand-napped peachskin lining finish, making the strap a no-fuss blend of rugged luxury.
The toughest quality control around, bar-none. We truly care that you enjoy your strap as much as we do making them, so attention to detail and quality is everything. Each strap is individually checked and comes with a hand signed quality control card to certify that the strap meets our incredibly stringent quality and finish standards.
Bison Boa CUSTOM products are always gift presentable and The Slinger is no different. Coiled in a graphic printed, raw cotton, drawstring bag to protect and look great on arrival.
Super comfortable, strong and durable, the 4" *at shoulder (approx. 100mm) wide strap has an adjustable length of 46" to 58" (approx. 117cm - 147cm). This extended range strap will be the perfect fit for small through to large players. Break this strap in and condition sparingly to experience the highest quality over a lifetime of use *The natural hand-brushed lining will shed fibres initially, but this will subside over time. ‡ Buckle end of strap worn at the back of the guitar.
Like everybody else, we had to close our workshop over the Covid pandemic. With all that thumb twiddling time, we decided to hatch a dastardly scheme to revamp Bison Boa with new designs (the exciting stuff) and a new logistics model to get our stuff to more customers in more countries (the boring stuff).
As a small team, making those changes is a big old task that's taking up all our time right now, but pretty soon there'll be a wave of new straps and new products. Just stay tuned. Sign up to the newsletter and accept push messages to be informed when 'coming soon' officially becomes 'right now'. We'll be back very soon, with a bigger range than ever before.
