I'm interested in players' experiences with neck straps that have an extra-wide adjuster or spreader piece, e.g., some models of Cebulla, Forestone, or Air Music straps. I'm not really looking for brand recommendations (as in this thread: https://forum.saxontheweb.net/showthread.php?271570-Best-neck-strap-with-wide-adjustment-plate), although feel free to make one if you wish. What I'd really like to know is:
- How does it feel to use one of these straps? What is the comfort like for your neck, back, and shoulders? Does it affect your playing at all, or the ease of balancing/positioning the sax?
- What size horn have you played with this type of strap?
- How wide is the spreader on your strap (inches or centimeters)?
