The Franklin Padded Series elevates “soft” to an art form. If you are looking for a soft feel and total comfort on stage, this is your strap. This 2.5" strap begins with a soft core of top-quality suede with a wafer of foam on the top of the suede, and then it's wrapped with plush glove leather. Wrapping the glove leather around the suede achieves a “rolled look” that will remind you of the deep, tufted custom upholstery you would find at a classic car show. Adding another wafer of foam on the back, under more glove leather, enhances the “upholstered” look and feel to an extravagant level.
