It took me only 25 years of playing guitar until I finally came to my senses, plunked down $10 and got myself a guitar foot stool. Or to be more precise, I just bought the ‘On-Stage-Guitar FS7850B foot stool for myself and after using is for a little over a week now, I must admit I should have done that much earlier.
The FS7850B is heavier than it looks on the picture which is an indication of its sturdy built. With that being said, this is my first foot rest so I don’ have any references and therefore I’m unable to compare this particular device to other models. However, I haven’t seen any issues so far and unless you use it inappropriately (like literally standing on it with your full body weight or other nonsense), I really doubt that I will encounter any problems down the road.
Here is a short video product review of the On Stage Guitar FS7850B:
The device allows you to use five different elevation levels and it is very easy to go from on to another. The top surface is made of rubber and ensures a firm grip. The FS7850 is fully collapsible and therefore easy to transport.
I think especially when you practice a lot while sitting in a chair, a guitar foot rest helps tremendously to keep your back and spine relaxed. I definitely don’t want to miss it anymore and for under $10 it’s a no brainer to me. Here is a link to the Guitar Shop in case you are interested in the On Stage Guitar FS7850B Guitar Foot Stool or similar alternatives in the category of guitar foot rests.
