The Jazzlab Saxholder and Saxholder-XL are superb alternatives to traditional saxophone neck straps. They eliminate all stress from your neck and transfer the weight of the instrument across the shoulders and to the stomach, using its patented three-point support system.
This makes the instrument feel lighter and allows you to play for longer periods of time without worry of neck strain or back ache.
To use, simply swing both the shoulder handles up until they click into place, pull out the telescopic slide and rotate the abdominal rest and you are ready to attach your instrument.
The holder provides great comfort for the player when in a seated or standing playing position and does not slip like regular straps can be prone to doing. It is made from a mix of both aluminium to keep it light, kevlar for extreme durability and neatly folds away to be placed within the bell of the Sax for easy storage.
Supplied with extra string in case of damage and with a pull tie cloth bag for safe storage.
Both the SAXHOLDER and the SAXHOLDERXL are able to hold all sizes of saxophone from soprano - baritone as well as bass clarinet and bassoon.
The XL model has the exact same specifications as the original saxholder but it has been designed to cater for larger players and is best suited for players 6'3" and taller.
Jon our resident sax player says:
We have had review after review stating that the 'Saxholder' is a revolutionary way to hold a Sax. I must say that I have only ever used the traditional sling, and whilst there are some wonderful slings and straps now available, I have always favoured the Neotech brand, the 'Saxholder' is something completely different!
I agree, it does look a bit odd, but it really does make the instrument almost weightless. Best of all you can use it with the Baritone, Tenor, Alto and Soprano saxophones. It is also great for the Bass Clarinet and the Bassoon, all heavy instruments. I can see why it is so popular!
