Murata/Aria guitar support durability

Postby hugoperales » Thu Sep 29, 2016 2:21 am

I was about to buy a Murata guitar support. I have never tried a Murata, I have read a lot of reviews and I think its worth to try it. Coincidently, a classmate is selling a 3 year-old Murata for half the original price.

But I am wondering how much durability does the Murata has? What are the parts that are more prone to wear?

Perhaps it would be better to order a new one.

Never an issue with mine. But thankfully, Strings By Mail does now carry parts.

I am selling one (planning to possibly keep one of the ones I have listed):

If you have any problems with the bottom slipping, the Oasis Grip Strip is excellent.

I am using the Barnett right now, but there is nothing wrong with the Murata.

I have a copy of the gitano made by Aria, is 99% percent the same unit(even the instructions are the same but in japanese,plus no gitano name...), I think they are well built.

If durability is a big factor for you, I'd take a look at the Barnett Umbra support (not to be confused with the one made out of wood). I've used it for a while now and I feel its pretty bullet proof and will literally last a lifetime.

Consider that the Barnett does seem to have less parts that could fail. That's a good point.

The Umbra is certainly a great support and comes in a good price.
