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”.

Guitar straps are not ergonomic. The concept of a weight on one side of a trapezius/ shoulder joint for an entire musical-lifetime is detrimental to the balance of your body. With my signature dual strap, the weight is balanced on the other shoulder – offering a 60/40 weight distribution and is a lifesaver no matter your musical level. Get your Matt Heafy @richterstraps dual strap now and save your body. (You can always use this as a dual or single strap with a simply click on/off feature).
Heafy’s Richter double guitar strap retails at €159 (Black) and €189 (Black & Oni). More info at richterstraps.com.
