Are You Well-Adjusted?

No matter what instrument you play, posture and body position promote good technique and reduce stress on joints and muscles. But adjusting a strap during a performance is usually awkward at best. The Levy Right Height Guitar Strap series is designed to solve the problem with “RipChord” adjustments that let players set their instrument’s height while wearing it. Models are available in 2″ and 3″ widths and can be made from polyester, cotton, leather, and padded leather.
