I have an even cheaper version of a neckstrap! I bought a keychain, that
clips on to a belt buckle (metal, the plastic break too much). Then I took a
piece of material, folded it 4 times into a small patch with a loop at the
top for the keyring to fit into, made a button hole in the patch. Then I
took a long strip of material, one that is comfortable around the neck, and
tied it with a double knot at the where it is comfortable to hold the
clarinet, and clipped the keychain to the neck strap, and Viola! I have a
very inexpensive neckstrap. Total cost: 6 shekels (at 4 shekels to the
dollar, the cost is 1.50 plus labor for sewing) for the keychain, and I had
the material in my scrapbox.
