The revolutionary Soft Harness from Neotech uses neoprene reinforced with an elastic support system which carries the burden of a heavy saxophone while enhancing the musician’s freedom of movement.
A saxophone harness that is not only functional but extremely comfortable! The patented weight reduction system of the Soft Harness™ uses neoprene reinforced with an elastic support system which carries the burden of a heavy instrument while enhancing the musician's freedom of movement. Musicians no longer have to be restricted by confining harness designs. The Soft Harness™ is ideal for musicians in marching bands or individuals with back or neck problems. Available with our popular swivel hook or a nonmarring tubular nylon connection system that offers an alternative to a traditional hook attachment. The loop connector is extremely strong, yet easy on the instrument's finish.
|Hook||Appropriate For||Break Strength*|
|Swivel hook||The leading cause of hook breakage is when a hook lodges sideways against the instrument putting excess torque and pressure on it. Neotech's updated Swivel Hook engages snugly on the instrument's strap ring. It features an alignment pin in the snap mechanism for better rigidity and a molded "fin" that helps the hook remain in the proper vertical position. This design minimizes the chance of the hook becoming lodged sideways and keeps the weight and pressure on the hook in the proper playing position.||Hook breaks at about 125 pounds (56 kg).|
|Loop||Truly unique design offers non-marring locking system for small eyelets and/or heavy instruments. Great for students or musicians in marching bands as it offers the ultimate in security and flexibility. Ideal for the Baritone Sax.||Quick disconnect fails at about 145 pounds (66 kg).|
* All break strengths are static loads measured in tension. Side loading on any of the hooks can reduce the break strength substantially.
