The Simplicity Harness™ from Neotech offers woodwind players a truly streamlined solution for supporting their instrument. The fully adjustable nylon webbing keeps the weight off the neck and subtly fits under a jacket. Designed to be comfortable for both men and women, the Simplicity Harness™ fits most woodwind instruments. The compact design fits easily in an instrument case or in a pocket for easy storage. It's available in two sizes as well as in three hook styles. The plastic-covered metal open hook is ideal for instruments with smaller connection areas and allows for fast, easy changes between instruments. The metal swivel hook and plastic swivel hook are ideal for saxophones and other instruments with slightly larger connection areas where the added security of the closed clip is desired. The design includes quick release buckles on both sides of the hook so that you can quickly and easily take on and off the harness. As the unique design self-adjusts with the back leather adjustment piece, it is simple to find the most comfortable fit and playing position. Keeping it simple with the "no frills" approach is what the Simplicity Harness™ is all about. Give it a try to see if it's the perfect choice for you!
|Hook||Appropriate For||Break Strength*|
|Plastic Swivel hook||Popular option with closed design. Great for added security and students. Strong enough to even carry a Baritone Sax.||Hook breaks at about 125 pounds (56 kg).|
|Metal Swivel hook||Ideal for slightly larger connection areas where the added security of the closed clip is desired.||Hook breaks at about 133 pounds (60 kg).|
|Plastic-covered metal hook||Ideal for instruments with small eyelets, i.e. clarinet, english horn, oboe, bassoon, etc. Also great for quick instrument changes at gigs.||Hook starts to bend open at about 75 pounds (34 kg).|
* All break strengths are static loads measured in tension. Side loading on any of the hooks can reduce the break strength substantially.
