|At the 2011 Summer NAMM show, Rico launched the Rico Padded Sax Strap with Snap Hook. This new line extension embodies, at once, the saxophonist’s concerns for instrument security and comfort, with the need to combat heat and moisture.
Constructed from soft memory foam, the Rico Padded Sax Strap adapts to the curvature of the neck, providing a customized and comfortable fit. The outer shell is a durable, athletic-style material that breathes with the player and allows heat to dissipate. This also enables the strap to dry faster when used on hot stages. This favorite Rico strap now employs a strong and durable plastic hook to secure the instrument, ensuring the same comfort with added security.
“This revolutionary strap has received rave reviews,” states Rico Product Manager Robert Polan. “The memory foam not only adapts to the body but doesn’t irritate the neck when working on a scorching stage. Players are sure to appreciate the extra option with the addition of new snap hook.”
