YOUNG PLAYERS' BODY STRESS
The ergonomically designed BREATHTAKING Strap was developed with the understanding
that "a player's body and the instrument" are deeply connected.
It was created to reduce stress on the body.
Long hours of practice puts more stress on the bodies of growing children than on adults.
Our strap protects the young growing bodies.
Did you know that the saxophone puts a lot of stress on a young player's body?
Untill recently, it was common practice to use a neck strap that hangs the instrument around the neck.
Imagine the damage that could do to the body when an instrument weighing 2~6 kg was hung around the neck day in and day out!
Without even realizing it, the player is hurting his own body through daily practice.
It goes without saying that the weight of an instrument puts even more stress on a young growing body.
In severe cases, young players could suffer from problems such as neck deformation, cervical disk herniation, autonomic dysfunction and insomnia.
OUR STRAP IS THE ONLY ONE THAT
DOES NOT PUT STRESS ON THE BODY!
REASONS FOR CHOOSING BREATHTAKING

TESTIMONIALS FROM USERS
For over 30 years, I have taught various middle and high school wind ensemble groups.
I have had lots of opportunities to meet students who constantly complained about their body conditions, such as feeling bad, having a headache, feeling fatigued, etc.
Not until I myself had developed cervical disk herniation did it finally occur to me that the cause was the stress put on our body by the weight of the instrument.
I designed and handmade the first strap to reduce our body stress as much as possible.
When my students tried using it, they were very happy because they felt better and the sound production got easier.
Their delight has become my driving force and, after 4 years of research, the strap went on the market in 2007 .
It is a strap I made with the sincere hope that it enables players to perform without compromising their health.
I wholeheartedly hope that more young players will use it.
