Planet Waves is pleased to announce the immediate availability of the new Dare Strap from inventor Troy Dare. The Dare Strap spells relief for those who've misaligned their spine or otherwise suffered back problems from their heavy instruments. Instead of creating disproportionate stress by hanging an instrument off one shoulder, the patented Dare Strap spreads weight over both shoulders.
With the advent of heavier guitars and portable keyboards, some musicians are experiencing new work-related trauma, principally in the mid-back to neck regions. The Dare Strap evenly distributes weight equally over both shoulders, simultaneously lightening burdens and providing instant relief. Players also have the option of using the Dare Strap as a conventional single shoulder strap.
"The value of this new product is two-fold," adds Brian Vance, Senior Brand Manager for D'Addario Strings. "It's a perfect strap for heavy instruments and it just may provide relief to many musicians. It's a versatile, natural solution addressing musicians' needs."
The Dare Strap will be available February 2007.
