The Super Harness™ offers unmatched comfort to the avid musician - from beginner to professional! This easy-to-use neoprene harness provides freedom of movement and our unique internal control-stretch system with added cushioning for maximum comfort and support. The quick release buckles make it a snap to put on and the adjustment system makes it easy to customize the harness to your needs. As it freely glides through the hardware located in the back, it increases your mobility without sacrificing your comfort since the neck/shoulder pad always stays in place. There's no other strap like it! Give it a try! Available with our popular swivel hook, nonmarring plastic-covered metal hook, or a loop connection (great for baritones).
|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).|
|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.

The tuba I'm supporting with this harness is an extremely small horn. It is only 20" tall. Tuba straps will not work with it. Euphonium harnesses will not work either. When I looked for a suitable harness system THIS one jumped out at me as a perfect solution. Strong, light, supportive, comfortable, everything I need.
I like the Super Harness; it is very comfortable. I also like the Tenor Sax Tone Filter.
I am looking for a strap or a harness for mine vintage bass sax, which can you indicate to support the high weight of a old bass sax? Also, which model of connector is more resistant: the Swivel Guard connector or Plastic-covered metal connector?
I would suggest the Super Harness. It is very supportive and can handle a heavy instrument. For a bass sax I would actually recommend the Loop Connector. (The fourth photo from the left on the product page.) The Loop portion connects onto the instrument and does not come off. It can be un-clipped from the harness when needed. The swivel guard hook is better for smaller instruments that are played in a directly vertical position. The plastic-covered metal hook is an open hook that doesn't lock in place.
