Product Description

Balance the weight of the bassoon more centrally when using a neck / shoulder strap by using this easy to attach leather bassoon balance hanger. Helps to distribute weight more evenly across your body, reducing the strain on your wrists.

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.

This product does not include the bassoon in the picture!

Balance hanger bassoon, leather

I think the product is good, but the experience with crook and staple is really bad. It took very long to get my product, and the information about the delivery was almost non-existing

Works Great!!

I wanted a simple hanger to use to take strain off of my left hand while playing. This was perfect!! It has made it possible for me to play, even with my recent JRA flare-up, and I love that I didn’t have to drill any holes into my bassoon to use it. It’s so simple to take on and off as well!! I highly recommend it!!

Dear Julianne,
It's wonderful to hear that you are able to play pain free, sometimes the smallest change can make the biggest difference! Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review.
Happy bassooning!
Best wishes,
Eliza @ Crook & Staple

Excellent

The bassoon balancer does exactly what I wanted, my left hand no longer has to support the weight of the instrument and can concentrate on getting the notes

The balance hanger works really

The balance hanger works really well. However, the split ring to attach it to the bassoon had some sharp ends, which left a small scratch. I would also have preferred a clip, since I would like to be easily able to remove it from the bassoon.

Excellent Service - Excellent Product

Bassoon balance hanger works like a charm. I had lot of pain in the left hand because of the balance problem. Now, the pain is gone. Excellent product. It does not require any drilling on your instrument.
