Saxophone Neck Strap Review

A good quality saxophone neck strap is not only important for maintaining good posture, but also for preventing neck, shoulder and back pain.

I've reviewed some neck straps in the past, but the ones I review here are one I would wholeheartedly recommend for a person of any age, any size and any ability.

(Side note – I am not endorsed by any of these companies – I am recommending based upon my and my peers' experience with these straps)


There is a new saxophone strap called HOOKi. It is a great alternative to help get the weight of the saxophone off your neck.

  1. Thanks for the neck strap review.

  2. Vicki Kesterson says

    Thanks Donna for the reviews.
    My daughter is taking sax in school for the first time this year (age 10… once a week/everyday next year) and even though it’s an alto I was a bit worried that it would be too heavy. I now think we have some great options. I love seeing the girls play this beautiful instrument. I have rejoyced seeing my brother enjoy a 50 plus year career playing and now he will get to share that love with his niece. Thanks so very much!

    • Great to hear! I think the JazzLab SaxHolder Pro may be best at this point. I personally use the Vandoren FNH 100 Universal Harness the most because I play tenor, but the SaxHolder is a bit cheaper
