The Saxholder is highly recommended! I have yet to test with a "normal" belt (the higher-priced class) after prolonged play mostly already pain in the neck and shoulders, and it was worth it to me, the Saxholder easy times. The good part was the same for several hours busking session to use and I have to say: Genial !!! No pain, no annoying pulling etc. The weight of Sax is pleasantly distributed on both shoulders which automatically leads to a stable and straight posture. However, the belt is a bit tight ... With the tenor I need the full length of the belt - shorter it is unlikely in my case really sien. But there are also the XL variant thereof, as the belt is probably a little longer. People begrudge you and your neck this miracle part !!!
