A beautifully articulated expression of comfort specifically designed to benefit the physical health of musicians. Born of collaboration with guitarists and decades of ergonomic study. Customized to your dimensions.
From Brian Boggs, Creator of the Sonus:
“Most of us think of playing music as a wonderful expression of soul. It is that, but for accomplished musicians it is also physically demanding. Musicians suffer from myriad physical difficulties as they position their bodies around their instruments. This chair is designed specifically to support them comfortably for hours of practice or performance. The Sonus chair promotes better posture, circulation and expression of movement.”
Spruce: Subtle and understated, spruce allows the wood grain to speak for itself. Most spruce is very light in color with an even and fine grain. It is a remarkably strong material for being so light, which is in part why so many guitars are also made of spruce.
Curly Maple: Also known as flame maple or tiger stripe, curly maple is prized for the elegant lines that play across its surface. These stripes shimmer under changing light or as you move around the chair, an optical effect that gives a sense of depth and is known as chatoyance (from the French for “cat’s eye”).
Ambrosia Maple: The bold, multicolored swirls that make this material so remarkable are actually the result of a beetle that bores into the tree, then cultivates a fungus that stains the wood. As a result, every piece of ambrosia maple is unique. We typically recommend pairing this wood with walnut legs because they can stand up to the dark patterns and make quite a show piece.
PRICE: $1800 – $2400 depending on wood species and degree of customization. 30-day trial available.
“THE SONUS MUSICIAN’S CHAIR WAS WELL WORTH THE INVESTMENT.
I AM ABLE TO PLAY MY GUITARS FOR HOURS WITH NO DISCOMFORT. THE PROBLEMS I WAS HAVING WITH TIGHTNESS IN MY BACK AND SHOULDER HAVE DISAPPEARED. THE CHAIR HAS CORRECTED MY FORMER UNHEALTHY “SLOUCHING” GUITAR PLAYING POSTURE BY HELPING ME TO SIT UP STRAIGHT.
AT THE SAME TIME IT IS ALSO IMPROVING MY PLAYING TECHNIQUE. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THE CHAIR TO ANY GUITAR PLAYER. IT IS ALSO A BEAUTIFUL WORK OF ART!”
