Q: Will it work on my ukulele?
A: The Mobius Strap for Ukulele will work for most people, male or female, right or left-handed, on any size ukulele that has a waist, with the exception of some metal-bodied resonator instruments, which may be too "bottom heavy" to balance properly.
Q: Will it affect the sound of my ukulele?
A: The strap puts no pressure on the soundboard and tests with a decibel meter show no effect on volume.
Q: Can it dampen my strings?
A: When playing while standing the weight of the instrument prevents this from occurring. When playing sitting down it is possible to take the weight off the strap allowing it to touch the strings. However, if properly adjusted you can play sitting down without this happening, as shown in this video.
Q: This can't be right! What am I doing wrong?
A: There are two possible ways to put on the strap but only one is correct. Make sure you are putting your arm through toward the neck of the ukulele.
Q: This isn't comfortable! What's wrong?
A: If you turned the strap the wrong direction to connect the ends you will wind up with a full twist in the strap when worn. Right-handed players should turn it to the right, left-handers to the left! If it is wrong, reverse it one whole turn and try again.
Q: Why isn't this working on my pineapple ukulele?
A: Your ukulele must be the type with a waist for the Mobius Strap to work properly. The waist positions the strap to act as a fulcrum with the weight of the neck holding the instrument in playing position.
Q: Why isn't this working on my metal-bodied resonator ukulele?
A: Some metal-bodied resonator instruments may be too "bottom-heavy" to balance properly. The instrument should be heavier toward the neck when balanced at the narrow waist for the Mobius Strap to work correctly.
