“Save your body” with Matt Heafy’s new Richter double guitar strap

It’s designed for better weight distribution across both shoulders.

Matt Heafy has teamed up with German company Richter on a signature double guitar strap built for better ergonomics.

It features a second strap that, as you’ll see in his Instagram post below, is simply slung around the shoulder of your strumming hand. This offers a “60/40 weight distribution and is a lifesaver no matter your musical level”, says the Trivium frontman.

The Shogun singer also addressed issues with single-shoulder straps in his post, explaining that “weight on one side of a trapezius/shoulder joint for an entire musical-lifetime is detrimental to the balance of [one’s] body”.
