This is a very serious issue. I've had the strap completely pop off twice while I was playing this keytar. With the Alesis Vortex I was simply able to switch out the old strap nuts with locking ones, but I can't do this on the Edge- the screw just keeps turning forever without loosening.

People of Roland, sit up and listen: the strap is what makes it a keytar. If you can't securely attach the strap, then the instrument is no longer able to be called a keytar since it cannot be played while being carried by the strap- YOU PEOPLE SHOULD KNOW THIS!!!!

So are there any Ax Edge users out there who have found a solution to this abysmal design flaw? Please let me know- the sounds on this thing are awesome, but I absolutely cannot use it if the strap won't stay on.

You need a beer.

A Grolsch.

Or rather two beers.

They have to be those with the flip cap.

Take off the seals and attach them to your pins after the straps.

Its the guitarists solution that is much more enjoyable then spending cash in straplocks.

You will have to open up the body. The strap nubs are held on with bolts. Just be careful and take your time. The volume and assignable nobs will need to be pulled off but they pop back on. If it isn't opening up, check for more screws, don't force anything. Good luck!!

Welcome Mochamoo.

I think the Op must be sorted as he did not come back for further advice after my suggestion way back in Novmber, probably hooked on Grolsch beer.
