This strap is such a simple little thing, but it is very nicely made and I like the adjustable mechanism very much. Just pull up or push down the (rather elegant) metal bead along the cord and the height is set in a way that is quite stable and reliable. The clasp is easy to operate and won't slip off of the attachment on the bass recorder. I was impressed by the simple design of the neck pad. It's soft and comfortable against the skin, with what I guess is a cotton pad reinforced with a leather or faux-leather patch. All in all, a very nice accessory, and a bargain at just under ?15 including VAT.
