With the Doubler Strap™, musicians can easily switch between two instruments—just remove one horn from the first hook and apply the second horn to the other hook.
Neotech's Doubler Strap™ is the ideal solution for musicians who play multiple horns of varying sizes. Often when playing in the orchestra pit there are only a few bars to change instruments. With the Doubler Strap™, there's no need to take the time to readjust the length… just remove one horn from the first hook and apply the second horn to the other hook. Fast and easy! The pad features a laminated construction of neoprene, elastic reinforcement and memory foam for complete comfort during long practice sessions or gigs. With one longer and one shorter strap on a single neck pad, it's a simple matter to switch from a bari sax to an alto in just a few seconds.
The Doubler Strap™ is available with three different hook configurations; two swivel hooks on webbing straps, one swivel hook and one PVC-coated metal hook on webbing straps, or two PVC-coated metal hooks on cord straps. By keeping each strap adjusted to the length needed for both instruments, changes can be faster than ever. Take the stress out of doubling with the Doubler Strap™ exclusively from Neotech!
