For a long time, guitarists have used a footrest or «step» to ensure stability while playing, an solution that has never been improved, despite the
modern developments in technology. Yet, this solution creates health problems for the posture and the back.
There are alternatives, of course, but UBI is a new solution offering two specific features: support and balance. This avoids problems related to stability and meets the guitarist’s postural and artistic needs. Today, the heightened focus on the health and well-being of musicians leads us to rethink the way we hold the instrument to achieve optimal mobility of the hands and a balanced distribution of our strengths. This is possible by creating a support for the guitar and finding the right balance. Two characteristics summed up in the product name.
