Not a pain in my neck

Comments about Vandoren Saxophone Support System Harness:

I love this system. I have a pinched nerve in my neck and this system puts zero pressure on my neck.It allows me to play for hours with none of the issue I had from having a strap around my neck.

    Comments about Vandoren Saxophone Support System Harness:

    I initially purchased the standard length model. It fit me fine when playing tenor. On baritone, I had to extend it to max length and it was acceptable, but I wished for another inch of adjustment. I was in the process of buying a bass sax and I knew there was no way the Vandoren harness would work with the larger instrument. I exchanged the standard version for the longer one. It works very well with the bass. I don't think I could play bass with a standard neck strap. About the size issue - I am not sure how a player's size impacts the needed length of the support system. It seems like a players neck size i(diameter and length) are the most important dimensions. I am 5'8", and my neck size is 16". My logic tells me that the only other dimension that matters is the size of the saxophone, and where the start fastens to the instrument. Wouldn't six foot and five foot tall players with the same size necks need the same length strap?

    Nice but...

    Comments about Vandoren Saxophone Support System Harness:

    In a matter of effectiveness and simplicity, between this item and the sax holder, it has been easier to use the sax holder, and faster...i didn't have the time to try things on the vandoren harness, seems great, but tried changed the measures between the wideness possibility and the height at my waist, couldn't find a position that makes the baritone holds right. The sax holder did it faster.

    Triedd it. Didn't like it

    Comments about Vandoren Saxophone Support System Harness:

    I already have 2 harnesses, the BG and the Neotech. Both ride up my back while sagging in front allowing my bari to slip down too far. I always feel like I'm wrestling with them, so I thought I'd try this new design. It has semi-rigid shiolder/back straps that connect to a belt and I has a very large "V" shaped slide adjuster on the front which I felt was way too much of an ad for Vandoren. Per the manual, it is supposed to work either sitting or standing and to stay in place if your sitting and then standing up or the reverse. This didn't work for me. The harness contently needed adjustment when I sat or stood. The semi rigid straps either pushed up above my shoulders or they shifted across my back. I also found them to be uncomfortable when the weight of the horn was on the harness. The straps across my back pushed against my shoulder blades uncomfortably. I had a buddy of mine who is a professional try it and he didn't like it either. I am still looking for a good harness while I continue to try and work with the Neotech. For reference, I'm 6' 2" and broad shouldered. Perhaps it works better for someone who is smaller. Happily, WWBW accepted my return.

    Best Sax Harness

    Comments about Vandoren Saxophone Support System Harness:

    I tried one on, played my tenor, and sold. While using my standard neck strap I found I was fatigued and neck strain. Really needed to do something so I tried various harnesses available. Vandoren's was the best, easy moving, nice setup that I could have ever tried. No more stress, just pleasure of playing. Highly Recommended

    Vandoren Support System

    Comments about Vandoren Saxophone Support System Harness:

    Excellent harness; it is an extremely well engineered support for tenor and baritone saxes. One caution, mine got lodged in a tone hole in my tenor while storing it in the bell (in the harness soft neoprene case). I had stored it this way for over a year and never had a problem. The instrument tech had to sacrifice the harness, there was no way to dislodge it without destroying it. I am buying a new one and will exercise extreme caution storing it. But is well worth the investment. Five stars.

    The Harness

    Comments about Vandoren Saxophone Support System Harness:

    I love the new Harness strap. When you put on a suit coat and then the old style shoulder harness strap, it always feels like an old man bra. It restricts your breathing and looks funny. When wearing the Vandoren Harness I get the look of a standard neck strap when I put on a dress coat. All you see is the strap coming from my neck area - small and simple. What you don't see is the weight of the Bari Sax is spread from my shoulders down my back to my waist. This strap became my immediate favorite for the Bari Sax and it looks great with a coat on! 4 hours of standing with the Bari is easier than ever and no body knows I have a harness on!!
