Magnets arrived sooner than expected. Great product and service.
I have owned just about every guitar support made in the last 15 years and nothing out there compares to the sageworks umbra guitar support. If you are looking for a support that has considered every angle possible and does not slip off of your leg. This is it. I am very satisfied and it also improved my playing.
Easy install while changing strings. Well designed and manufactured. Easily adjusted to customize fit.
Seems solid for longevity.
This support works very well and stays in place. It’s easy to remove when don’t want to use it. I think it’s the best support on the market.
Really happy with it and really quick delivery.
Tried several supports.
This one does what it has to do.
Simply the best!
I love the fact that extra magnets can be purchased to expand on Sagework Guitar Support to other guitars that I have. I find it advantageous adding them to my ukulele! No more neck and back pain.
I love my Sagework support. I had tried a few others before and none was satisfactory until I got the Sahework one. It is really worth the cost. My last order (extra magnets) enables me to switch easily between two guitars, tuned differently.
İt is a very handy tool..all classical or acoustic guitar players should have smth like this..it doesn’t harm your guitar and easy to carry because it can be bended..i use it every time i play..thanks to Sagework for this great job
I love it. I’m a guitarist and a mechanical engineer and appreciate the Umbra support from both perspectives. It’s very well designed, installs pretty easily, supports the guitar solidly and has all the adjustability you might need. The magnetic connection is perfect for this application.
I have deployed the tall Umbra on three guitars. I switched to the short Umbra on my latest guitar because my right arm was giving me trouble. Lowering the guitar a bit with the shorter Umbra fixed that. I can use either Umbra on any of my guitars.
The magnets work perfectly, very strong, and easy to install and remove **if and only you do it right**. Read and follow the instructions. They are not hard to understand, but it's easy to make a mistake if you're not paying attention. The mistakes can be undone, but who wants to do that? You have to understand and pay special attention to how you can remove the magnet if that's ever necessary. Spare adhesives are a good idea!
The Umbras themselves are made of indestructible, no-nonsense materials and design able to last for generations. The magnets are designed to be easily taken out and put back. It has all worked seamlessly for me.
I expected a practical and trustable guitar support. My expectations were clearly exceeded. Sagework support stays firmly, optimizing space and providing a practical solution for adaptability and mobility. It's conformable, adjustable and made of high quality materials... and it looks really elegant on my classical guitar!
Very well designed and executed. Best possible materials and great attention to the details. It solved my past guitar support problems beautifully.
The best guitar support I have ever used. Well designed. Bravo! I just bought a second set of magnets!
I have had pain in my left hip from using a footstool. I decided to try this support based on all the good reviews. It's been 2 weeks and the hip pain is almost gone! The shoulder fatigue is also much better. I am extremely pleased! I was worried about the installation, but just watch the videos and take your time. It was not difficult. I took the old strings off. I do have small hands so I'm sure that helped. In fact, the worst part is just putting new strings on! I know you can just loosen strings to do the install, but I needed new strings anyway. I can now practice longer without difficulties. I have not noticed any slippage while playing and the support if very secure.
I recently decided to hang up my rock cleats and get back to classical guitar. I sold some electrics and purchased a fine concert classical. I had an "A-Frame" years ago and it never stayed attached. Upon purchasing my new guitar (made by the same luthier that made my old classical) I learned that the suction cups don't play nicely with French polish guitars and decided to try this device. I read the dissatisfied reviews first. One of the reviews pointed to the magnets releasing. In the 2 weeks I've had my Atlas, I've experienced this same situation, where the device just releases. Good thing I was able to notice that this only happens if I sit improperly and put the magnetic connections in a position for which they weren't intended. I HIGHLY recommend this product.
Easy to set up, and works just as advertised. In addition, my back feels much better!
Enables me to use same support, same setup with no adjustments for two guitars
works well. nice packing.
the thigh piece wll need a better material at the contact end. unit still slides down over my pant leg after some playing time - a better anti slip piece I guess.
maybe you should contact the people involved in anti slip strips in bathrooms or the motor accessories people who deal with anti slip material that can hold well to moboile phones.
if you can find a replacement send me one.
Thank you very much for your review and feedback. I'm going to look into a different material for the leg rest pad. If we end up making an improvement there, I'll send you one for sure.
When you're seated, is your leg parallel to the floor?
Was looking for just the right support. I found it. Thank you.
I initiially tried a foot stool (which hurt my back), a support that attached with suction cups (which never fit well), and a covered foam pad (which wasn't quite high enough), so I was intrigued by the Sagework support. This thing is like magic. While I was nervous about installing the magnets, it was straightforward given the very clear instructions from Sagework. And the quality and workmanship of the support are wonderful. In sum, I couldn't be happier and can't imagine a better guitar support system. Kudos to Sagework for an extremely creative and quality product.
Excellent product and outstanding customer service.
This guitar support is by far the best one I have purchased for my use. It did take me a couple of days to get used to it. It does not move that much on my leg like the others I had been using. The cost was a bit more than the others I have but I understand why. The quality is very good and it does make practice and playing my guitar much easier. The setup and instructions were also very easy to understand. I would definitely recommend this support to other guitarist. I am 64 now and started playing when I was 16 years of age. At my age any improvement to help practicing and playing helps tremendously. Thank you!
My guitars got tired of sharing.
