Boston Sax Shop Newbury Street Strap


Boston Sax Shop logo Vanguard Orchestral


The Newbury Street strap is all about comfort, details and quality.

The contoured form sits ergonomically on your neck and the specially designed foam cushion will mold to your unique neck shape over time, creating a truly custom fit. The design and width of the singular cushion provides excellent support as it divides the weight of the horn across the maximum surface area of your neck, resulting in less strain while playing.

Each Newbury Street strap is made with two pieces of premium genuine leather; a softer smooth leather is used on the inside and a thicker leather on the outside to provide the right balance between resiliency and softness. This combination ensures you get a great feeling strap that wont stretch or ‘bounce’ when playing and as it breaks in, will form to fit you like a glove.  The interior leather is also resistant to bleeding dye, a common issue with other straps. 

The grommets and clamps are industrial strength, nickel plated brass. 

The string is 550 marbled paracord

The hook is made from high grade stainless steel and features Japanese made, military spec, abrasion resistant tubing. This provides a hook that has unparalleled strength but will not damage your neck strap ring.


Choose ‘Medium’ for alto and soprano players

Choose ‘Long’ for tenor players or those wishing to use the strap with both tenor and alto saxophones

Boston Sax Shop

The Boston Sax Shop is a small one-man saxophone repair shop in Boston. Its custom reeds, made by Rigotti in France, have been making waves in the sax world. Vanguard Orchestral is the only store in New Zealand stocking Boston Sax Shop reeds. From owner Jack Finucane:
As saxophone players, we know it’s all about the little things. The details that go unnoticed by almost everyone else. Maybe it’s that extra touch of style, or a thoughtful upgrade in the quality of a single part that’s only tangible to you, but that’s what separates a good product from a great one. At Boston Sax Shop we care about those details and strive to solve problems with each design. We rely on the feedback of the world’s top performing artists and are proud to have many of them as brand ambassadors. For us, it’s about the joy of creating the things we’ve always wanted to see available on the market and holding quality as our highest ideal. We want to inspire you with our goods and prove as an independent brand that we are producing the most innovative saxophone accessories on the planet.
