ERGObrass Saxophone Support

FAQ

Does it fit any saxophone?

This saxophone support is made specially for the soprano saxophone. You can play either on straight or curved soprano.

Is it awkward?

It is quite natural that a player, who has been playing for years, will go through an experiment and adjustment period when first using the ERGOsax support. Most of players have developed some tiny little movements during playing, the player does not need them anywhere, in fact he or she does not even know about most of them. But it is only a matter of some days or weeks, and a player will get used to ERGOsax and finds a new way to make his or hers typical movements, only now ERGOsax will be supporting the weight of the instrument. Now you can discover new and healthier ways of playing. You’ll find out very soon that you can turn and lean your horn with minimal effort. In fact the only real difference is that you feel more relaxed and playing is lighter and more comfortable...

Will it fit in the horn case?

As there is nothing attached permanently to the horn, there is no problem to put it in your horn case. The support rod and tube are approx. 26 cm long and easy transport.

How is the height adjusted?

It is most important that the instrument is at the right height - where you find it comfortable - when you play. You lift or descend the support rod into its counterpart. Just open the screw and set it in a desireble height. And as the horn is on a top of the spring, you can also smoothly and with a minimum force move it up and down a little bit while you play.

What does it look like?

The ERGOsax is designed to be as invisible as possible, it is simple and non-obtrusive.

Is the neck strap no longer needed?

The soprano sax can be played quite easily even without the strap with the ERGOsax. However, many players like to use the neck strap even the weight is no more carried by the neck. With the neck strap   you may have even more sable feel for playing. However, this is a personal matter after all.
