    Hello, Kahai, et al. When I got my new ukulele, I got the passive pickup option but did not have a front strap button installed. What are the pro’s and cons of using a strap, and is it ok to tie the strap to the headstock rather than using a front button?

    Thank you for your response!


    Hey Skip,

    I’m so excited for this question! I feel like this is an OG Thursday Live Lesson (what the podcast was called before) question that we haven’t had in a while. I’ll try to make sure we answer this question on this week’s podcast, but if you can’t wait till Thursday here is a podcast where we explain the pros and cons of different kinds of straps and straps in general:

    TLL Podcast #21 – The Book of Jake

    I think another reason I got excited is because I’ve thought about using this exact question (To Strap or Not to Strap) as a title of a podcast. I ended up going with this:

    TLL Podcast #107 – Do Straps Make the Player?

    but it instantly brought up memories of these particular podcast. I hope our answers on this week’s podcast are helpful.
