Thread: Euphonium Hand Strap: "Comfy Euph Strap"

    Euphonium Hand Strap: "Comfy Euph Strap"

    I have the purchase information from the person who actually made the original strap. She is a horn player and makes most of them for horn, naturally, but she will still make them for euphonium. Start here:

    Scroll down the page until you see this picture:

    Here email is right there, with some words replacing the symbols @ and the dot. Please do not post the email here so we respect her right to not get it scraped by robots. It's her personal address. This is an out-of-the-home business run by a horn player who is good at sewing also.

    I'm going to order a new one for myself - she has added a fleece lining for comfort. Standard black is $29; the one in the photo above is $33; and she will do custom for a higher price.

    I did a video about the hand strap. I included it in this post later in the thread:

    I suspect her customer service is always good, subject to her perhaps being on a trip or something. When I talked to her I gave her a heads-up that I would post her info, and she said should would go ahead and make up a few to be ready! I like that!

    I'm going to order one too. Don't need it all the time but I'm sure it will come in handy for 'standing gigs'. Thanks for the info and for Valerie doing these.
