(Formerly known as the "Barnett Umbra Short")
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!
What can I say , fixes my sore rump, easy one time install, especally if your hands are small. Thanks.
I am 65 in tall guy (and apparently getting shorter as time goes by). I have a '69 Taurus #56 Spanish guitar which I consider to be precious and I want to preserve the surface as much as possible. My guitar has French polish, not varnish, and it seemed ill-advised to tempt damage with suction cups or external braces. I tried a standard sized Ergoplay Troster which seemed to place the guitar just a little high. I emailed Sageworks to ask advice and they recommended the standard sized model to start. I was impatient and ordered the Short model before I received the advising email.
I have been using the short model Umbra now for a few weeks. I am using the Short model extended to its maximum length and it seems just about right. The Standard model, at its shortest length, would likely work as well.
While using a foot support, I found that I spent a good bit of my practice time just getting in position, and I struggled to 'unwind' after sitting with foot elevated for a while (i'm 73 yrs and getting a bit stiff). With the Umbra attached, I swing up the guitar, place it, and it's good to go - nearly instantly, and it's easy to arise afterwards from a simple sitting position. The internal magnet concept is clever and seems to be incredibly 'solid' in its connection to the guitar. The external magnets are well padded and I can detect no trace or mark where they touch the guitar.
I am completely satisfied with the Umbra, and I think that for my height the Short model is a good match.
Installation takes a bit of commitment and a leap of faith. Practice before placing the adhesive.
