My husband has a habit of going to wirecutter.com whenever he needs something new. If you're unfamiliar with the site, it's a hub of unbiased product reviews that have been through rigorous testing. Think of it like a modern-day "Good Housekeeping" stamp of approval.
I decided to create my own "ER stamp of approval" with products that have made my life easier as a saxophonist. Without further ado, here are a few of my favorite things :D
Developed by a Japanese saxophonist with the goal of creating an ergonomically correct saxophone strap, the Breathtaking eliminates stress on the neck, eases tension in the chest, and divides the weight of the instrument between shoulders. The result is a ridiculously comfortable, well-made strap that makes hours of playing effortless. (And all the baritone players rejoice...)
