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.

I must say that if you play the tenor or heavier sax this accessory should be your number one accessory from day one of your practice. The crucial difference with this Saxholder compared to all others (that I know) is the support you get from the belly thanks to the belly plate. I've seen Stan Getz wearing a clever sax strap that goes over the shoulders and fastens in the back of your pants and I've built such a strap myself. It's much better than a neck strap, but this Saxholder is just as much better again. The belly plate makes the difference as it lifts the sax and further alleviates the shoulders (even if you don't have a big belly, which I don't). With the "Getz" strap there is a great relief of the neck but the belly plate is genial. This device should have existed decades ago and I'm joyed it arrived. It's worth every penny. A famous sax brand has an expensive strap available that fastens at the back of your pants. I haven't tried it but it should be outdone by the Saxholder. An other device from Jazzlab is the "Deflector" which mounts on the bell of the sax. It's a great idea but I didn't find a retailer for it. Saxbrig, daily sax #023 on YouTube shows you how to build one on your own and it's very easy. It should also be your training tool from day one and it will help you decide what mouthpiece you will settle on as it reflects the sound to your ears. Indispensable also, may I say.

      Comments about JAZZLAB saXholder Saxophone Harness:

      My daughter (10 y old) uses it for her tenor sax, and she's happy. She needed some time to get used to the belly plate, and also figuring out how to adjust the shoulder parts, but now she likes it. The easiness of putting it on is another thing that she loves.

      Sax Harness...Works for Me

      Comments about JAZZLAB saXholder Saxophone Harness:

      A couple of months ago I got my tenor sax repaired and refurbished that my parents had bough for me in 1958. I hadn't played it since 1960. Fast forward to the present and I was looking for something to ease the weight on my neck and arms. After reading a bunch of reviews for the harness, I took a chance and can't be happier. Now if I can only get my playing skill back tot he way it was when I ws 14.

      Great harness, especially for bari sax players.

      Comments about JAZZLAB saXholder Saxophone Harness:

      The Jazzlab saxophone harness is great for taking the weight off your neck, especially for bari sax players. I've played bari for a long time and have always used a (padded) neck strap. I've only used this harness for a few weeks and can feel a huge difference in my neck. The downside, if this is one, is that it takes some bending/adjusting to get it to fit just right. But after it's adjusted it's great.

      Comments about JAZZLAB saXholder Saxophone Harness:

      Can slide off when doing a quick instrument change , but takes a lot of strain off the neck. Also enables better mobility and positioning of horn (tenor sax) when changing from sitting to standing and soloing.

      Great product

      Comments about JAZZLAB saXholder Saxophone Harness:

      Saxholder saxophone harness. Indispensable to relieve tiredness in neck and shoulders if you play a tenor or heavier sax. The key feature is the belly plate that helps keeping the sax away and up and relieves pressure on the shoulders and neck. Traditional harnesses keep the sax close to your body. Thus, your arms and hands quickly get tired trying hold the sax away from you. Some have complained about the Saxholder being difficult to store when traveling and they may have a point but it has not been a problem to me.
