Building on the popularity of our Newbury St Strap, the ‘deluxe’ features an anodized aluminum ‘wide adjustment bar’ which spreads the strap ends and string away from the neck. Much time and consideration was put into the design of the bar itself which we believe to be the best made and most ergonomic on the market!
About the Newbury St Straps:
The Newbury Street strap is all about comfort, details and quality.
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. 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.
Each Newbury Street strap is made with two pieces of premium genuine leather; a softer smooth leather is used on the inside and a thicker 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 and as it breaks in, will form to fit you like a glove. The interior leather is also resistant to bleeding dye, a common issue with other straps.
The grommets and clamps are industrial strength, nickel plated brass. The string is 550 marbled paracord. The hook is made from high grade stainless steel and features Japanese made, military spec, abrasion resistant tubing. This provides a hook that has unparalleled strength but will not damage your neck strap ring. Each strap is assembled and tested at The Boston Sax Shop
