Q: Will a drapester fit in my guitar case?
A: Yes. A folded drapester will fit in most guitar cases.
Q: How does a drapester stay in place?
A: Because the guitar rests at an angle in the stand, the part of the drapester that hangs over the top of the guitar acts as a counterweight and keeps the drapester from sliding off.
Q: How much fiddling does it take to cover the guitar perfectly?
A: No fiddling at all. Just line the pocket up with the neck and put the drapester over the top of the guitar so that the bottom is an inch or two off the floor. The demonstration video shows how it's done.
Q: Is that a smiley face on the front?
A: It may look like a smiley face, but it's a pocket. It centers your drapester on the neck of your guitar. You can keep picks, nail accessories, business cards, etc. in the pocket.
Q: Why 100% cotton fabrics?
A: Cotton fabrics out-perform the other fibers we've tested. Our fabrics mold easily to the shape of your guitar, won't slip off, don't snag on the sharp ends of guitar strings, won't harm guitar finishes, and are eco-friendly.
Q: Can I wash my drapester?
A: Yes. drapesters are machine washable. Instructions can be found on the care label at the bottom inside edge of your drapester.
Q: How long will current colors and patterns be available?
A: Our selection changes from time to time, depending on customer requests, fabric availability, and our desire to try new things. Check our products page for the current solid colors and prints.
Q: Do you make custom drapesters?
