The Boston Sax Shop's Newbury Street Strap is designed with comfort and quality in mind. The contoured form sits ergonomically on your neck and the specially designed foam cushion will mold to your unique neck shape over time, creating a truly custom fit that cradles the top of your spinal column. The design and width of the singular cushion provides excellent support as it divides the weight of the horn across the maximum surface area of your neck resulting in less strain while playing.Made with two pieces of premium genuine leather, the Newbury Street Strap has a softer smooth leather on the inside and a tougher leather on the outside to provide the right balance between resiliency and softness. This combination ensures you get a great feeling strap that wont stretch or 'bounce' when playing. The interior leather is also resistant to bleeding dye, a common issue with other straps.
