(Formerly known as the "Barnett Umbra Short")
I have tried most of the available guitar supports and this is the third Umbra I have bought; meaning I really like it.
The advantage, to me, of the Umbra model is that it is easy to pack (being small) and highly configurable in all directions. This makes it work in every situation and I think this cannot be said about other support types.
I highly recommend this guitar support.
This is a great guitar support is is a quality piece of kit. It has plenty of adjustment to get the guitar into just the right position. I did end up changing the short arm out for a standard length model. My hands/arms are large and it was impossible for me to get my hands into the sound hole on my guitar, but my 12 year old son was able to help me install it successfully. So much better than the suction cup equipped supports that I have tried.
I got the Umbra short. Installation was smooth. For me, the lift of the guitar resulted in more of the right arm weight resting on the body of the instrument, which, when translated down through the smaller surface area of the leg piece - 2 inches wide with hard resin edges - was quite uncomfortable and increasingly so over an hour-plus practice session. The request to return the item was easy, just waiting now for the credit to be applied.
Awesome design, very innovative, comfortable and with a very wide range for positioning, just love it and highly recommend it .
I recently purchased the Sagework guitar support and it was a wonderful decision. I have used a dynarette cushion for 13 years and I did not realize what I was missing until I received this new support.
This support is incredibly well-designed and gives the guitarist full control over all of the aspects of positioning the body with the instrument, which was lacking in some areas with the dynarette cushion. This support does not slide on the clothes while practicing and gives an amazing amount of confidence to the performer while practicing and performing.
The support also has a very professional appearance and stores very nicely in a Visesnut case. The customer support with the support is very helpful regarding the product and is very prompt in answering emails.
I highly recommend this support to concert guitarists.....a wonderful, innovative support for many years of enjoyable practice and concertizing!
