New Vandoren Sax Support System Makes Sax Feel Weightless
January 2013, Chicago IL – The new Vandoren harness is a universal weightless saxophone support system that is unlike any device on the market. With its patent pending rear support bars, the system takes the weight of any saxophone and distributes it so evenly that the saxophone practically feels weightless.
“This system is amazing,” commented Michael Skinner, DANSR president. “The design of the system distributes the weight of the sax over different parts of the back and the shoulders so you never feel any fatigue. The player will not feel any weight or stress on the neck. The added feature is that you get incredible freedom in the front with absolutely no pressure on your diaphragm or chest. It’s an incredibly freeing experience to have your sax hooked securely to this system and have such an effortless feeling. I know it has increased my practice sessions because I no longer get tight in my shoulders and neck from conventional straps I used to use.”
The universal part of the system is that is can be used by students and professionals from small sizes to large sizes. The same harness works for baritone, tenor, and alto saxophone. The Vandoren harness comes with its own soft pouch that stores in the bell of a tenor sax for easy transport.
The Vandoren harness is available now at a music retailer near you.
