The new Breathtaking Saxophone Strap is used by major artists worldwide and is considered by some to be the best strap on the market today. It was created by a saxophonist who suffered from problems caused by long hours of practice using a conventional neck strap.
Eliminates stress on the neck and allows you to play with good posture
The instrument feels lighter - the shape that rests along the shoulder line, together with the back strap, distributes the weight evenly between the shoulders and the back, relaxing the body
Facilitates an open chest so you can breathe deeply - As the connecting bar creates comforable space around the chest and prevents the neck from being squeezed, easy, smooth and deep breaths are possible resulting in pure and rich sound.
Soft, high quality leather and padding add comfort. Each strap is handmade with the utmost care by Japanese craftsmen. No compromise is allowed on the design, materials, sewing, and funtionality in order to maintain its quality.
The Wraplift - When Wraplift is attached to the BREATHTAKING Strap, it improves the 3 main benefits of the strap: No stress to the neck, no stress to the chest, and the division of the weight of the instrument.“It’s as if the strap is floating.” Wraplift creates a space between the body and the strap and gives the player a feeling that the strap is floating from the body. You feel the weight of the instrument even less, breathing becomes easier, and the sound richer.
1. Increased comfort during performance - Wraplift is designed to lift the strap away from the body, resulting in more freedom around the neck and chest, and the breaths going into the instrument without any interruption. 2. Keeping the strap in placeWraplift is reversible. Depending on what you wear, you can choose the material (leather or suede) to prevent the strap from slipping. 3. Decreased feel of weightIts design also divides the weight of the instrument by lifting the strap. 4. Soft and comfortable fitIt wraps the triangle part of Saxophone Strap and protects the body with a soft cushion
