The benefits of wearing the Acoustic Hip Strap waist guitar strap
The Product Overview video demonstrates how to attach and wear the Acoustic Hip Strap from Slinger Straps. The video identifies the many health benefits this ergonomic guitar strap can offer players who suffer pain or discomfort from wearing a traditional over-the-shoulder acoustic guitar strap.
Traditional acoustic guitar straps have one major design flaw. They place all of the guitars weight on one shoulder. This single position adds pressure to the shoulder nerves, tendons and muscles from the neck down through the fretting arm. The instruments weight, injury and time can cause the player physical pain when bearing the weight on one shoulder. This ergonomic waist guitar strap moves all of the guitars weight to the players’ waist, relieving all of the shoulder pressure of the instrument.
