Best neck strap evarr!

returning to playing with my modified sax, I wasn't happy with how my long-time favorite neckstrap was working with positioning the instrument and the geometry between my neck and the relocated neck strap hook. After some help from a friend letting me borrow a few alternatives, I found the Gel strap manufactured by Just Joe's Music of Bend Oregon.

The strap itself is leather with gel cushion inserts ergonomically placed to reduce pressure on critical vertibrae to prevent long term damage or strain issues. The adjustment slider is wonderfully smooth moving and easy to make minor length adjustments. This thing really is the most comfortable strap I have ever played, I end up forgetting I even have it on in most cases. Half an hour or so after I'm finished practicing, I'll realize I still have it around my neck. Joe makes these ro order, and can make pretty much any length required. The quality of construction is top notch. The metal spring loaded clip style hook is plated in what looks like black nickel and feels far more secure than any plastic hook I've ever tried.

No this isn't the least expensive neckstrap on the market, But I totally believe it is worth the money for the stress releif and comfort it provides.
