Zeca Macapa is known around the world for making the highest quality drum straps. All of his straps are carefully made by hand because he understands the importance of the small details. Details like no-slip backing, durable materials, hooks and sliders made of metal (not plastic) and the bit of padding on the inside is a nice touch! You will never need to buy another strap, unless you lose it. Or somebody steals it from you because it's so awesome!
