Forgive me if this is a stupid question; I don't play bass. Was hoping someone could tell me what sort of strap system Esperanza's using here. Looks like she's clipping her bass onto something that's on her waist (and I would assume there's some strapping under her outfit to support the weight?). Whatever it is, seems to be doing a great job

Fender made something like this in the 60's, the "Go-around Waist Belt" but it involved eye-hooks drilled into the guitar IIRC.

you could probably make one by attaching a leather fob with a strap-lock to a weight lifting belt or something. If you were so-inclined.

Nope. Not that slinger strap. I saw here up close in March 2016, and asked her after the show, but she was tight lipped about it. Almost like it's in development and she's got some money coming when it hits. It was as amazing as she was! One of the best shows I've seen. D+Evolution is for real!
