Thread: Euphonium Hand Strap: "Comfy Euph Strap"

Even though my horn works with the single strap, I've been using the double on my horn and it feels as secure as the single strap.
    Thanks, Dave. I ordered the 2-strap version yesterday.

  2. I have a Hirsbrunner as well and just got the strap. Do you attach it to the main bow below the little brace between the 4th valve and the main loop?

    I love this thing! I tend to be a ďbelly huggerĒ when I play and had considered getting/making a lap pad for a while before deciding to try the strap first.

    I play on a hirsbrunner and the strap fits just great. There seems to be a lot of adjustability. Itís longer than it needs to be for my horn, but with it adjusted properly thereís not too much extra strap hanging off or anything of that sort (so no modification needed at all).

    Iíve found that when using the strap, I tend to hold the weight of the horn more evenly without pulling it in against myself. This was my goal. My left hand also tends to not get tired as quickly.....the strap puts the weight of the horn kind of on the knuckle of my index finger where it meets my hand, so my thumb stays relaxed and my index finger is free to work 4th valve. My right hand also seems to have less tension because Iím not trying to hold the weight of the horn much if at all with that hand.

    In short, the strap seems to relieve a lot of tension for me......highly recommend!
