The latest Saxholder


The traditional sax strap or sax harness transfers the whole weight of the instrument to the neck. By the time many performers complain of chronic neck pain, there may even be damage to the cervical spine. saXholder is a new, patented three-point support system. The whole weight of the sax is transferred onto the two padded shoulder handles with assistance from the abdominal rest.


- transfers the entire sax weight evenly to both shoulders, no stress on the neck

- can be put on by one hand in seconds

- saves space, smaller than a sheet of paper when folded

- is very comfortable when sitting or standing, since it does not slip away

- looks great, especially designed for both men and women performers

- is a high-tech product that uses aircraft and space travel materials: made of Kevlar ® and aircraft aluminum.

- can be set quickly and easily: swing both shoulder handles up, pull out the telescopic slide, rotate the abdominal rest, ready.

- developed in Switzerland

- made in the European Community




What the pros say


Paquito d’Rivera, saxophonist and clarinetist, about saXholder: “It works just great!!”


Benny Golson, saxophonist, composer and arranger: ” The saXholder is what I’ve been waiting for. No more pressure on my neck. No more messed up shirt collars. No more sweated saxophone straps”


Chico Freeman, saxophonist, composer and producer: “The saXholder finally brings the best of two worlds together, the freedom of movement from a neck strap with the weight distribution of a harness and it looks good when you are wearing it”


Bob Sheppard, saxophonist: “This amazing engineered saXholder device works better than any harness I have tried. The horn feels like it’s floating, very comfortable, natural and easy to use. Besides making the saxophone feel light as a feather, the saXholder has other positive side effects, including better posture and diaphragm breathing.”


Sergio Flores, Sexy Sax Man, saxophonist, about saXholder: “I think I as soon as I tried it I fell in love with it!… my neck is totally free! ..It’s brilliant!”


George Garzone, saxophonist and jazz educator, Berklee College of Music: “For me, the saXholder takes away all the pressure of the saxophone on my body. This is a phenomenon!”


Pete Thomas, music producer and saxophonist, about saXholder: “Finally, I can play the bass for more than 5 minutes at a time!”

"saxholder"

had this for a while now. Its very easy to use and very comfortable to wear but most importantly it takes all the pressure off my neck which has a disc problem. A standard strap causes a lot of neck discomfort but this causes no problems at all. Frankly every saxophonist should have one... i am only a beginner and am learning to play alto.

Having tried the Neotech sling and not getting on with it, I took the plunge and got the Saxholder II. Its a very nicely made piece of kit that works very well to take the strain off your neck, shifting the weight onto your shoulders. It also looks good and is very sturdy - I wouldnt recommend this but it can comfortably take the full weight of my baritone sax hanging free. The arms that hook over your shoulder can be adjusted to fit by bending the aluminium which can be a bit fiddly, and you may need a helper to tell you where to improve the fit, but this should be a one-time thing. My only criticism is that although it says the sling is the size of a piece of paper when folded, its actually still quite bulky due to the size of the abdominal rest plate and the load spreaders on the shoulder hooks, so it doesnt fit in my SKB shaped tenor case and is too big to fit in the bell of an alto, so you will need quite a roomy pocket on a case with a pocket on the outside, or you have to remember to keep it in your gig bag.
