    Well, if he won't see this, oh well. I won't hide anyone because I can handle unfiltered discussion, even KennyG lovers. It's still too expensive. Joe's got a lot of sales from SOTW. He should kick back more than a crusty old mouthpiece. I called the other day to get more information on the strap, but they said Joe wasn't there but I could hear someone in the background yelling "CHA CHING, CHA CHING, I'M RICH BIATCHES!" Go figure.

    I don't understand your gripe cosmosis. How much $$ do you think Mauriat make on their horns? How about Walmart on each Chinese made item they sell? How about fast food joints on drinks? I seriously doubt Joe is getting "rich" selling these. The Cebulla is more expensive than Joe's strap but, having tried both, IMO the gel strap is vastly superior.

    He has several default lengths including 20" and 23". I'm pretty sure the 20" would've been a little too short for me on tenor so I got the 23". It works but you have to pull it fairly high for alto. I should've asked him to make me one at 21" which he says he's willing to do no problem. The impression the gel leaves on your neck when you take the strap off looks kind of weird.

    I know this strap got a lot of attention because of the hook (I'm leaving my opinion out of this), but aside from that it's just a really good strap and he'll put any kind of hook you want on it.

    A+
    I would like to revise part of my review. It's unfortunate, but the black stain from the leather does rub off on my white dress shirt. It's not like the back of my shirt is all black, but it makes it look dirty and it does leave black spots on the edge of the collar and where it rubs up against where the tag is on the inside of the shirt. Same problem I had with my Oleg.

    It doesn't show up on the photo as well as it does in real life, but you can see some of the black marks and how it leaves the outline of the strap on the shirt.

    Anyone who thinks someone is going to get rich selling neck straps, or any other saxophone related product for that matter, is out of touch with the reality of the market...

    Sadly I'm not one of the top players in the NW.. yet....yet I tell you

    There's a difference between being price gouged by let's say Comcast and a guy who claims "I'm one of you guys". I'm just expressing my opinion. Joe hasn't disputed any of my estimates on price which indicates I'm probably pretty close. If he's making 100k a year then he's on of the 1% and when Occupy Just Joe's (OJJ) starts, I'll probably join them. Now that's America!

    Hey Agent,

    Thanks for the update. I need to know these things as I continue to want to improve the product where possible. The neck-side leather is used primarily on women’s garments, like blouses. It is the finest material I can purchase and is the least likely to "bleed". I tried many other leathers to include different colors as well. Everything except the black just became so dirty looking that I stopped exploring color options.

    Please keep me posted, especially if what you experience would stop you from using my strap.

    Sincerely,

    Joe

    If anyone doesn't like theirs, I'll buy it ($40 max, tenor). I doubt Joe's shipping to Seattle right now

    Ordered one yesterday, I'm looking forward to trying it. I have the Cebulla, it works fairly well.... with my neck issues (trying to avoid surgery), I'm trying quite a few things.... if Joe's works, I hope he makes a million on it... if it doesn't, it was worth a try....

    To me, it just indicates that Joe is taking the high road with you.

    More power to you, Joe!

    cosmosis,you have more than made your point, enough already.
    My wife, whose ears I trust, said that my sound is much fuller, richer, more powerful and resonant on this set up.
    ... but really folks... my wife said, " It sounds like a saxophone ".

    To me it indicates he's not paying any attention to your comments because they're irrelevant.

    It's for posters like cosmosis that God (or was it Harri?) created the ignore function.

    It's too expensive? Then don't buy it....that's the beauty of the market, stuff sells when there's a need and a price folks are willing to pay. If folks weren't in business to make money, this country would be in a world of hurt. I'm curious, did you say the same thing when you bought your ipad/ipod/laptop?

    Reading cosmosis' posts I had the impression he was a 13 year old smart a** but his signature says "'94 IU Music School Dropout", so that can't be right.

    And the beauty of the internet is you can go on discussion forums and let your voice be heard. I might know a lot more about the subject than some of you assume, but I'M DONE, I agree. I made my point, you can choose to agree, disagree, ignore. Remember any press is good press. My comments have probably actually helped Joe. Cheers.

    Happy Friday evening to all,

    What will follow is our attempt at a short video clip that speaks to the viscoelastic polymer component of our strap. What ended up happening was more comical than we intended but we decided to post it anyway.

    We figured that inserting a little humor on a Friday evening would hurt no one.

    Best to all,

    Joe and Josi (R&D dept)
