The ERGObassoon is a real Game Changer in bassoon playing. It is the first playing support which actually removes the bassoon weight from the player’s shoulders and arms for good. It has the same genius basic idea like all other ERGObrass playing supports: it supports the weight from below! Nothing is hanging from you!
The ERGObassoon transmits the whole weight to the floor no matter if you play standing or sitting. The support is connected to the instruments point of gravity, so you have a weightless bassoon in your hands. But you still can manoeuvre it very freely because it pivots to all directions very easily.
When comparing the ERGObassoon with the seat strap, no weight in your left arm. This is because it supports from the point of gravity, not from the bottom part. And you can turn the instrument very freely .
When you play standing up, you have even more freedom to move, the longer the support is, the more it can move.
Very easy to install the attaching part
The ERGObassoon clamp is very easy to attach to your bassoon. If you have a balancer, remove it first. You do not need the balancer when using the ERGObassoon.
Tiy just place the two parts together and tighten the screw firmly with one screw. That’s it! It takes about 10 seconds, no need to drill any holes to your bassoon either.
The rubber cushion which touches the silver does not contain any sulphur, so it does not harm your instrument.
When the clamp is firmly attached, just place the upper end of the support rod to the eye bolt on top of the clamp.
Press the black button of the fastener, this opens the lock mechanism, then place the slot around the eye bolt and release. Quick and easy!
Make sure that the steel wire of the fastener really goes thorough the eye bolt.
