Model: Umbra (Formerly known as the "Barnett Umbra")
Orientation: Great for right-handed or left-handed players
(Sagework Supports are symmetrical)
This is the more economical version of the beautifully genius Sagework (formerly Barnett) Magnetic Guitar Support. Functionally, it is exactly the same, but the wooden parts of the standard model are replaced with Vydyne, a high quality reinforced nylon that is both strong and beautiful.
Never again worry about suction cups slipping loose during a performance! Sagework Supports are the best guitar supports on the market and the magnet system makes them 100% reliable.
The Sagework Umbra guitar support is incredibly stable, fully adjustable, easy to install/remove, and completely safe for all guitar finishes. And being designed by luthier Kris Barnett and woodworker/engineer Randy Meinert , they are true works of art.
This version in its lowest position is 1" taller than the standard Atlas in it's lowest position and 2" taller in it's highest position. This difference is in the larger arm only. The smaller, curved arm is the same size for both supports. We recommend this version if would use a footstool in its highest position or if standard supports do not position the guitar high enough for your playing style.
Which size to choose? Please see our Sagework Sizing Options page.
Parts Included: Guitar Support, one Internal Magnet Set, Adhesive Strips & Markers, Allen Wrench, & Complete Installation Instructions. (For additional Internal Magnet Sets for additional guitars, please choose from the options below the Add to Cart button.)
Sagework Guitar Supports have several unique design features that make them the most reliable, adjustable, and comfortable support on the market. The most prominent and advanced feature is the implementation of rare-earth magnets to safely and reliably attach the support to the instrument. The use of magnets ensures secure attachment but also allows the support to "find" the proper location on the instrument instantaneously through magnetic attraction. The use of magnets is only one of many features that sets this support apart from others.
WARNING: The magnets are VERY strong and caution must be used during the initial installation and while attaching and removing the support. If meticulous care is not taken, damage to your guitar could result.
WARNING: Do not use magnetic guitar supports if you have a pacemaker or similar device.
I was ho-humming about purchasing one of these for awhile, glad I finally did, and now have used it for about a month. I’d been utilizing supports instead of stools for some time, trying to reach the most ergonomic position possible for me, especially for my back and wrists. I’m absolutely able to achieve that with this support. The final support I was previously using was the ErgoPlay Tröster, and though ergonomically it definitely got the job done, I found the suction cups unreliable with my Ramirez and Estevé guitars, even when new/replaced. Lastly, I’m 5’11” and went with the tall. I primary play with it sitting in two positions, barstool height and table chair. I pretty much have the support close to the lowest setting in the chair and at approximately 3/4 height on a stool. If I do ever order another support I’ll be upgrading to the Sagework Atlas. Thanks Geoff!
