A harness that is not only functional but extremely comfortable! The revolutionary Soft Harness™ from Neotech uses neoprene reinforced with an elastic support system which carries the burden of a heavy instrument while enhancing the musician’s freedom of movement. No longer do musicians have to be restricted by confining harness designs. Soft Harness™ is ideal for musicians in marching bands or individuals with back or neck problems. Neotech's patented weight reduction system does it again!
|Hook||Appropriate For||Break Strength*|
|Swivel Guard 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 Swivel Guard Hook (available on the Super Harness and the Soft Harness) features a mechanism that minimizes the possibility of this occurring.||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.
