This pad has helped out a lot. I usually play my epiphone thunderbird and man those are heavy, my shoulder attained an unbarable pain. Until I got this strap pad. I used this in a school gig at my school and it helped a lot. The gel is really soft and will relieve that shoulder pain guitarists always get when plaing for long periods of time.

helps for those long gigs

By Eagles

from CA camarillo

Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Gel Guitar Strap Shoulder Pad:

The planet waves gel pad is very helpful because I have to lug around a Gibson 1275 double neck that weighs who Knows how much. The pad fits right on your strap and feels great. The pad lasts a long time so don't think about buying many unless buying some for friends. Last the strap is good for long gig or for studio recording.

Unique use for straps

By Tom Meadath

from Chicago, IL

Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Gel Guitar Strap Shoulder Pad:

The gel pad is particularly useful after shoulder surgery. As an outdoor photographer, I must carry a camera and all accessories. The gel pad makes carrying this weight extremely comfortable after my shoulder surgery. It is the difference of continuing my photography or not.

Planet Waves Gel Guitar Strap Shoulder Pad is excellent.

By H. Clark

from Fort Worth, TX

Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Gel Guitar Strap Shoulder Pad:

I purchased this item to use as a shoulder pad for the strap on my heavy laptop bag which I carry a 5 pound laptop and a 4 pound portable scanner. The strap dug into my shoulder hard even though it had a foam pad. I replaced it with the Planet Waves Gel Shoulder Pad, and the difference was quite noticeable. Very comfortable and I could stand and walk around with the bag for several hours without fatigue. I like that the pad is about a foot long so it will definitely cushion the entirety of the curve of your shoulder. I would highly recommend this item to anyone who has to lug around a heavy computer bag or tool bag a lot. I'm not a musician, but I'm sure any guitarist would get comfort from this pad.

Shoulder pain gone away

By Chris

from Lubbock, TX

Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Gel Guitar Strap Shoulder Pad:

This pad definitely eases the strain on the shoulder and lets me play my bass longer. The only drawback is that it slides and the only way to keep it in place is to sew a few stitches.

Planet Waves Gel Guitar Strap Shoulder Pad

By Rob

from West Bend, WI

Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Gel Guitar Strap Shoulder Pad:

Just what I was expecting and wanted. An oustanding well made gel pad that easily fits both of my guitar straps. The thickness and comfort of gel is very good. I can wear a heavy Gibson Les Paul easily for an hour without discomfort.

Great Strap!

By O_O

from Hays, KS

Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Gel Guitar Strap Shoulder Pad:

It's like the cheapest, most comfortable strap add-on (I guess you could call it) you could buy. It has Velcro that you pull open to put your strap in. The only thing I don't like about it is that it slides up and down the strap. Probably due to the thin strip of velcro (like 1/4 inch wide). other than that it's good. I got it for the price and it looked comfeeee.

    Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Gel Guitar Strap Shoulder Pad:

    I was looking for something I could attach to my favorite nylon strap to keep my very light, but stock heavy, twelve string acoustic guitar in place so it wouldn't rotate downward away from my left hand. This thing definitely adds some comfort for a heavy bass (I'm sure I'll probably put it on my 1970's T40 bass (probably named after weighing it on a scale, or perhaps after playing it for a three hour set - I literally had to spend three months going to a chiropractor to get my back straightened out after a few years of playing like that).

    On an acoustic guitar it feels like it's digging into my neck, because of the angle my strap sits at.

        After adding this gel pad to my guitar strap, i found it much more comfortable, and could go longer without feeling any shoulder aches.

        Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Gel Guitar Strap Shoulder Pad:

        Excellent. I use it on a messenger bag that regularly weighs upwards of 20 pounds. It's awesome. I'm sure it'd be just as good on a big heavy base. It's easy enough to swap from my bag to my jumbo bodied Ibanez. Just tear off the velcro, reattach to my guitar strap, and it's the most comfortable session I've had in a while.

        Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Gel Guitar Strap Shoulder Pad:

        My inexpensive nylon strap was very uncomfortable on my heavier guitars, was going to buy a wider strap...maybe even a padded one. Well this EASY to attach pad caught my eye, seemed to solve my problem and easy on the wallet. After I ordered it online I though I probly should have just spent the money and bought a new strap. With my luck the pad would end up being junk and I'd end up buying a strap....spending even more money. I was wrong!! Easy to attach, very comfortable - extremely happy with my purchase!
