Steve Weinert's Review of the Gemini Sax Harness

PRODUCT REVIEW: The Gemini Baritone and Bass Saxophone Harness

Simply put, logistics are the biggest hurdle to playing Bass Saxophone. Everything seems to be in 'BIG' quantities. More money, big case, big reeds, big mouthpiece, big key movements, and not least of all a big heavy saxophones!

Playing off a saxophone stand is a solution to the weight issue, but puts the saxophone at risk of falling over and the all important embouchure to mouthpiece presentation is often inferior and inconsistent.

Hanging a Bass Saxophone off a neckstrap, even if the bell is captured on the knee, begs the question if it is actually the saxophone or if it is the player that is being hung! Again the loose positioning makes that important embouchure to mouthpiece presentation inconsistent.

Questing for a solid method that didn't sacrifice the player's neck, the Gemini Bass Saxophone Harness was recommended. The Gemini is a progressive design combining the tried and true proven methods of using a dual 'braces/suspenders' shoulder harness with the latest technology in adjustment hardware, strap materials and attach hardware.

Ernie Kalwa of The Royal City Saxophone Quartet through the Saxcess Co. offer the Gemini harness via their website at: www.saxharness.com.  Ernie was kind enough to arrange for a new Gemini to be specially fabricated to suit my build and the Gemini Bass Saxophone Harness arrived by mail the day before I was scheduled to play a lengthy concert exclusively playing Bass Sax. A quick practice and setup session with the Gemini was enough to convince me that I would play from harness rather than neckstrap.

The several hour semi-classical performance was a pleasure, rather than the slow wearing down of being strangled by the neckstrap. Intonation and Tonal issues were improved by the extremely consistent location of the Bass Sax the Gemini allowed. Standing to play is no longer a moment of concern, but has become a non-issue with the Bass Sax safely held by the Gemini. A stand-to-play televised performance was no problem with the Gemini Bass Saxophone Harness.

One part of the Gemini Bass Saxophone Harness is certainly not Bass Sax 'Big' though ' Ernie has been able to keep the costs to a very modest level. After experiencing the Gemini Harness there is no going back to stands or neckstraps. Ernie has told me that many player's also play Baritone Saxophone from the Gemini.

I can wholeheartedly recommend the Gemini to any Bass Saxophonist!

Doctor-endorsed!:
"The Gemini Sax Harness works fantastic. I really love how easy it is to use and its convenience. It has totally saved my neck, allowing me to play my Tenor Sax as long as I like. Now I don't have to worry about my neck getting all tweaked out every time I play. Thank  you so much for this great product, which promises to give me many more years of musical pleasure and enjoyment on an instrument that I was seriously considering having to quit altogether. After 45 years of playing and in otherwise excellent health, this was a sad proposition indeed." Dr. Art Brownstein

I LOVE the Gemini harness when I play my bari sax!Your Gemini Harness is the way to go for "The Big Monster." Every sax player who sees and uses the Gemini Harness generally has the same reaction, which is basically, "Wow! It's really made well!"  The quality, materials, and impeccable workmanship and design of this harness is the best I've ever seen from any company. I wish you much success.
-- Jim Scimonetti, California USA www.jimscimonetti.com   

I want to tell you how happy I am with the Gemini harness.  It is really wonderful.  It took me some time and experimentation to finally get to a right set of adjustments but once I did, it was great.  Not only was the pressure off my neck but it was easy to have proper alignment of the horn overall, with minimal work for my hands and arms.  You've designed a wonderful product and I've already recommended it to others.  Thank you!
--Sam (Chicago) 2014

 

I sure am loving the beautifully crafted Gemini Sax harness you fixed me up with. It is really great! 

A distracted woman plowed into my car at 60+ MPH while I was stopped at a red light last December. It really messed up my neck. I play a lot of Bari lately, and I would never be able to tolerate the weight of a low-A bell bari sax with a regular neck strap. 

I always post top Five Star ratings for your Gemini Sax Harness on all the sax web sites, and I will continue to do so.

Thank you!!!
--Jim (California, USA, 2013)

Thanks for the order. I love my harness! It frees up the throat muscles so much and takes the strain off of the neck, that the first couple of gigs was a learning experience. I rave about it to everyone I see.
-- Curtis (USA, 2013)

I have never received such great service.  The strap arrived today and I love it!

Thanks very much,

-- Trevor (Canada, 2012)

"The harness arrived yesterday. Great design, great build, great product. Thank you.'
--Tim (Michigan, USA, 2011)

"I've had my Gemini for several years now.  Very happy with it.  For bari and bass saxophone I haven't found anything that works better." -- John L. (2010).

"The Gemini strap is quite comfortable and does an excellent job of keeping the weight of the instrument off your neck.  It is extensively adjustable so should fit players of most any size.  It is a well- conceived and well-executed accessory." -- Rick J. (Los Angeles, USA)

 "[The Gemini Harness] feels very good. Easy to adjust, and it doesn't slip. Playing the baritone is a new experience!" --Walter (Australia)

"Just a word of thanks for such a great sax product.  The harness I purchased fits great, build quality is awesome, but most of all ends the pain in my back I was having using a regular neck strap. Your harness was the third new sax strap I have purchased in the quest to eliminate my back pain. I guess the third one is the charm !  The first neck strap  I purchased was the Cebulla padded neck strap.  A nice well padded neck strap but still a neck strap.  Next product which failed was the Oleg ergonomic harness strap.  Again, nice neck strap but the suspender straps which attach to you belt loops to take the weight off your neck will not stay in adjustment and within a few minutes of use the weight of the sax is all on the neck. 
Good luck and thanks again for such a fine product."
Sincerely,
James D. (Illinois, USA)

"The strap arrived in today's mail - in time for tonight's gig! Thanks for your great service. And thanks for making a strap that doesn't make me feel like I am trying to squeeze into my old high school band uniform! It's really well made and very comfortable."
-- Jeff S. (Minnesota, USA)

"The harness arrived today. Wow!  Right away, I could focus on playing the bass instead of fidgeting and wrestling with it. Soon, I will take this for granted - the hallmark of an exceptional product. Please add me to your list of satisfied customers. Thanks!"  
-- Rufus Acosta, Acosta Woodwind & Brass Repair, Mountain View, CA USA

"I received the Gemini Sax Harness yesterday and it is truly a wonderful product! I am 61 years old and started taking sax lessons last November.  I could not find a product that would remove the weight of the instrument from my neck and allow me to play standing up comfortably. The Gemini does this remarkably well. I have found that the adjustability of the harness allows me to position the sax exactly where I want it. The clamp mechanism tightens the straps securely without any slipping. Thanks for the fast shipping too!" Sincerely,
--Allan G. (Maryland, USA)

"Great harness! Used it at a 3-hour rehearsal (on bari) and didn't get the usual back pain around hour two. Also like the offset hook; the horn hangs right without any effort. Plus it shortens up enough to get my ancient Buescher bass into a comfortable playing position. I'm going to order another one to use with tenor (weight's not an issue, but harnesses work well with suit coats). Thanks!"
--Tod S. (California, USA)

"The Harness came the day you predicted. It worked out perfectly.
I had a chance to play it in the section that night. With a few adjustments, it's working great and I'm very pleased and my neck feels a lot better. It's all that I'm using now.
I'll be telling folks about your Harness and can recommend it to them with confidence.
I appreciate doing business the "old fashioned" way ' thanks for taking time
To talk with me and for shipping the same day. Many thanks!"
-- Nash G. (Maine, USA)
