OVERVIEW

Radical sax support.

Instrument innovations come along with a fair degree of frequency, but rarely does a saxophone accessory change the prevailing paradigm. The Jazzlab saXholder saxophone harness does precisely that. Chronic back and neck pain is common among serious practicers and performers, largely due to the fact that traditional sax straps place all of the support tension on the neck and back. The saXholder is a new patented three-point support system that transfers the weight of the saxophone to two padded shoulder handles with additional support from an abdominal rest. It is constructed of aircraft aluminum and Kevlar for light weight and strength, and folds up conveniently for storage and transport.

This works for me.

Comments about JAZZLAB saXholder Saxophone Harness:

A few decades ago, after a few decades of playing tenor sax, my neck started to hurt. I tried several harnesses and hated them all for various reasons, but recently the pain got so bad I decided to try again. Went online and read reviews about the SaxHarness that inspired me to try it. It works. It spreads the weight of the horn between my shoulders and belly so the horn feels very light, and it touches my neck not at all. I've played three gigs using it and I'm sold.

It is a little wierd having a metal frame hanging in front of me. If I look down I hit it with my chin, and I have to take care not to let my horn contact the aluminum bar. And I have yet to find the best way to pack it - it doesn't fit easily anywhere in my gig bag, doesn't comfortably share the bell of my horn with the neck. Current solution is to put the horn's neck in the accessory pocket, which makes me nervous, and carry the SaxHarness in the bell. Still pondering that. But it makes tenor gigs do-able again, so it's worth the wrinkles

Comments about JAZZLAB saXholder Saxophone Harness:

I've been using this strap on tenor and bari saxes for about three weeks and am very impressed with it. It completely removes the weight of the instrument from the neck to the shoulders and makes a 3-4 hour gig much more bearable. Unlike a harness, this strap gives the player full movement of the instrument. It can be played from the front or side and is very comfortable even when sitting. It is also adjustable for differently sized players. I have recommended this to several of my students who are playing bari on the marching band field.

Comments about JAZZLAB saXholder Saxophone Harness:

I purchased this product about a year ago primarily for tenor sax. I have tried every conceivable neck strap and this harness (tenor sax) is by far the best. I suffer from chronic neck pain from an old whiplash. It also adjusts easily for alto. For soprano you just loop the cord around once.
