Sonus combines the benefits of a finely tuned bespoke chair with the aesthetic appeal of solid wood furniture. A chair to match the finest instrument, the Sonus design is a direct compliment to the human body in a playing position. The carved seat and back promote an ergonomic, upright posture which both reinforces the lumbar curve of your lower back and sits below the shoulder blades. Built to a custom height, Sonus chairs also promote circulation by placing legs at a comfortable angle. And the Sonus musician’s chair is not just for guitar players. Banjo, mandolin, and dulcimer players alike will also experience profound comfort.

The Sonus chair is a fabulous aid for the serious guitarist. It’s made a huge difference in my posture, my playing and my physical well-being. It’s also a gorgeous piece of furniture.

As with fine, handmade guitars, you get what you pay for. Not only is the Sonus incredibly comfortable, it itself is a work of art, handmade by a master craftsman who has invested countless hours in its design and development.
I’ve owned one for over a year now, and it’s taken my playing sessions to the next level…
Since music school 15 years ago, I’ve been plagued with back pain (muscle cramping and tension) that comes along with hours of practice. That ended with this chair. It’s an investment for sure, but if you value your comfort and practicing as seriously as you do your guitar collection, you need to try one out.

I wanted a chair to match the beauty of my new Laurie Williams Kauri guitar plus a chair that was comfortable to sit in. There was nothing that I could find in New Zealand but an online search revealed the Sonus Chair from North Carolina. Melanie and Brian have been great to work with. Brian’s pride in his work is very evident and the finished product which arrived a few months ago has certainly met my high expectations.
An extremely comfortable chair that aesthetically sits well at home – I love the craftsmanship. Thanks Brian and thanks to Melanie for the excellent communication along the journey.
Spent some time playing guitar yesterday with my new Sonus chair and I have to say, I have NEVER been more comfortable while playing! No more sore back, crossed legs and a yoga block under one foot for me! Not to mention what a beautiful piece of art that Brian has created especially for me!
My brother and sister in law are art lovers and appreciate fine contemporary furniture and they are in love with the style and materials of this gorgeous chair!
I love my Sonus chair so much that I use it at my desk as well as for playing guitar. Before I got this chair I would wake up every morning with pain in my lower back. After a couple of days of sitting on the Sonus chair I realized that I was waking up pain free. And I can play longer because I am so comfortable sitting in this chair. So the Sonus is the only chair I use both for playing guitar and working at the computer. And it is absolutely beautiful to behold whether looking at it straight on or seeing the back of the chair as it awaits me at my desk.
This chair is the best piece of furniture I have ever purchased.

She’s quite a work of art and an absolute joy to play in. Sent along a few pics of the musical family with their new sibling. Thanks again for the beautiful addition to the home.
