    Hey Rick, I'm getting ready to order mine for my 5050. How did yours work out with your 5050??

    TIA,

    It worked but not when attached to the outer bow. Had to attach around the 3rd valve slide. Valerie offered to make any necessary changes but I declined deciding I really didn’t need it.

    That is a cool custom strap on your double bell David. I think it is great how Valerie is willing to make customizations to her straps to fit unique circumstances.

    I am currently using the same slightly modified/custom Comfy Euph Strap from my post on 8/15/21 on my 3-valve New Standard, and it works great on that horn as well. I initially thought I would be fine without a strap on my New Standard since it was a bit smaller and lighter and just had different ergonomics for me in general than the Schiller. However when I found a new home for the Schiller I put the strap on the New Standard and love it!

    Received the strap, and like Rick suggested, it works well around the 3rd valve slide on my 5050 with no issues. It is extremely well made. Shipping and communication with Valerie was excellent.
