    I remember various configurations of these and similar door hangings from my childhood up until 1981-83 when it went completely faux pas.

    Remember, there is phase cancellation issues between every pearl, and every strand.
    As long as you have an even number of beads, you're ok.

    Rather than straplocks, I prefer just using oversized strap buttons

    They help me cut through the mix better

    i think we are into something here lol
    ...also spending tons of money on one piece of gear, overlooking important and relatively inexpensive things like straplocks. I've almost dropped my Epi four times now. :o

    It makes playing sitting down, and standing up- much more comfortable; and then I am able to play and sound better .

    /real party pooper, eh?
