I did a lot of research into this Sax Strap because I wanted to purchase this for my picky boyfriend who is a professional musician. He has used the same strap for 15 years and it finally just broke. Silly thing but he was paralyzed with anxiety over the issue. What if there isn't a strap at all like the one he used in the past - how would he do this?
I found that the hook, the fastener and the padding were well recommended so I purchased this one. He LOVES IT! He actually complained it was making him sad that he had to switch away from this strap when playing his Alto/Tenor Sax - so I bought one for the Alto/Tenor(s) as well! All three horns are delighted - as is the musician. No more complaining!

Straps come in all sorts of designs which I boil down to materials, ergonomics, and adjustments. The Rico uses a chamois/velvet-like material against the neck or shirt depending on one's dress. This material is both soft, to avoid chaffing, and slip resistant. The inner layer consists of about a one-half inch of foam padding which cushions and spreads the weight of the instrument over a large area, i.e., it does not dig into the neck. The outer layer is a vented nylon mesh that allows the neck strap to breath. From the neck strap extends a singular, small nylon cord on each side. I particularly like this design because often, instrument straps continue unchanged from the neck to the hook with the same thickness/width of material - which I find too bulky. Where the Rico especially shines is its length-adjusting system. Most straps (instrument, camera, backpack, binocular, etc.) adjust their length by threading the strap through a series of buckles/clasps; there simply is no quick adjusting. The Rico, however, employs a pulley-like system that shortens or lengthens the strap by sliding the adjusting disc (for lack of a better word) up or down; it's that simple. So, you want to fine tune the length, a slight pull up or down on the disc while you are "wearing" the instrument and you're set. I especially like this feature because, although there is a defined, set position of the MPc (mouthpiece) relative to the mouth, assuming a given posture, I sometimes have the need to slightly raise or lower the instrument, e.g., when I am sitting v. standing. All things considered: a terrific strap.

I go through these like, cookies in a junkie convention. Not that I've ever been to one, ahem. Anyways, this is the strap that finally made the cut. It' comfortable, it's well made and the strap will give out before the hook ever will. Yep, this guy will be with me for a good long time. I'm so glad I bought it. Got any cookies?

My 6th grader is playing the alto sax in band, and we got this to replace the one that came from the rental place. The hook makes it easy for him to take his sax on and off, and won't break like the plastic clasp on his rental strap did. It is very easy to adjust the length, and it's quite comfortable. The only thing that is a potential negative is that the sax could come off the hook without realizing it. I've told my son to always have a hand on his sax, and to make sure it's hooked if he absolutely has to take both hands off. He's 11, so fingers crossed it doesn't end up on the floor! So far so good though....

I have gotten a number of neck straps over the years for my wife to try and use on her Also Sax and this is by FAR & AWAY the best one that we have ever gotten or tried... which makes sense since Rico put their name on it... they are also the only reeds she will play on as well... if you are looking for the right neck strap or want something more comfortable look no further =) very nice to wear, adjusts super easy and hooks and unhooks from the sax easy as could be... just try it... you will not be disappointed!!!

I love this strap. My old strap was hurting my neck. I felt like I was going to spend my life with my head bent forward. This is very comfortable and seems solid. I like that the hook has a little twist in it, so that the sax doesn't inadvertently come off the hook. Go for it. It's worth it! :-)

This is the best neck strap I have ever used. I frequently have to remove my saxophone from the strap when I am directing our big band and this one allows me to do that quickly. Because of the shape of the hook, it holds the saxophone securely. The padded neck band is also very comfortable.

Very comfortable on your neck it has a very nice support. It's easily adjustable even though it looks intimidating or looks like it will get easily entangled but it's super easy. The only problem I have is while I am sitting with sax on and pull the sax toward my body (for ex, read music sheet), the hook comes off at times. Since the hook is not clipable like other straps. But other than that, this is a perfect Saxophone neckstrap!
