Johann Cebulla, a music producer, saxophonist, and Yoga teacher created the Cebulla strap after much research regarding the spinal column, nerves and muscle reactions in the back and neck area. Through his research Johann Cebulla found that traditional saxophone neck straps can constrict the flow of blood in the aorta carctis in the neck, causing more fatigue as well as strain in the neck area. The Cebulla was created to relieve fatigue in the neck and upper body and allow the natural flow of blood through the neck.
The Cebulla strap has two ergonomic pads that hug the back and sides of the neck. There is a space in between the two pads which relieves any pressure on the neck vertebrae. This new design allows more blood flow in the superficial capillaries and prevents headaches and strain associated with a conventional neck strap.
The Cebulla Saxophone Neck strap comes in four sizes suited for the instruments being played. The Small and Medium straps work well for soprano, alto and tenor saxophones as well as clarinet. The Medium, Large and Extra Large work well for Tenor through Bass saxophones. The Bari Sax strap has thicker brown leather on the back of the strap for extra support and is best suited for Baritone and Bass playing.
The portion of the strap that touches your neck is made from calf leather and is soft and luxurious. Each strap is hand made and individually checked for the highest quality in Sickenhausen, Germany.
"The Cebulla strap arrived and it is fantastic! Without question, it's the most comfortable strap I've used. It hit the ball over the fence."
