Welcome to Paxton & Morris, the home of things lovingly made by hand.

The minor strap is a narrower strap that can be used for ukuleles and mandolins and other small instruments or as a childs strap.

It is 38mm and as many smaller instruments only have one strap button and the strap needs to be attached to the headstock I can make a matching head stock strap.

If you would like a narrower strap then please ask, I can also make them at 25mm (see strap below for Adam Summerhayes)

Please see the Ribbons pages, you can use 40mm ribbon or narrower and you can also have a Gypsy minor strap using ribbons up to a width of 40mm maximum.

I currently have black and blue webbing in stock but many other colours are available so please ask if you would like something different. The buckles can be silver or gold.

This is a minor strap made for Katriona Gilmore (Gilmore & Roberts) for her scroll mandolin and has an additionnal strap so that it can attach to the scroll. The first attachment strap which is in the main picture was too long so is not the one shown being used by Katriona as I actually found a better matching ribbon to use also.

Jamie Roberts is shown with his matching Essential strap.

Cost for the set would be £26

The details for this are as above but these are made shorter so will fit the very young musician!
