Bassoon Balance Hanger (Leather, Easy to Attach)
Balance the weight of the bassoon more centrally when using a neck strap / other strap when standing by using this each to attach leather bassoon balance hanger.
Reduces the Weight on Your Wrists
Using a balance hanger greatly reduces the amount of the bassoons weight that is put on the left hand when using a neck strap, shoulder strap or bassoon harness. Normally balance hangers have to be drilled into the bassoon and made from metal, which is very expensive but this revolutionary design allows you to cheaply and easily use a balance hanger on any bassoon - no modification to the bassoon or specialist fitting is needed.
Adjustable to Suit Everybody
This balance hanger is adjustable with three pre-set positions that allow you to change the distance between the balance hanger and your strap / support system.
It is adjustable, non-invasive and requires no drilling or gluing!
Instructions For Use:
Fit the split ring onto the ring that takes the neck strap hook on the bassoon. The thin leather strap goes round the back of the bassoon (under the key work) and does up with the buckle in front of the instrument facing the player. The hook from the neck strap will then hook into the new D-ring at the top of the balance hanger.
The balance hanger can be adjusted to achieve optimum balance by choosing one of the three pre-set positions. To adjust the balance hanger simply undo the metal screw and reposition it into one of the other position holes provided in the leather strap. We include a second Nylock nut so that you can try out different settings with the first, then when you have found your ideal setting use the new second Nylock nut to ensure it locks onto the machine screw securely.
