The ERGObassoon is a real Game Changer in bassoon playing. It is the first playing support which actually removes the bassoon weight from the player’s shoulders and arms for good. It has the same genius basic idea like all other ERGObrass playing supports: it supports the weight from below! Nothing is hanging from you!
The ERGObassoon transmits the whole weight to the floor no matter if you play standing or sitting. The support is connected to the instruments point of gravity, so you have a weightless bassoon in your hands. But you still can manoeuvre it very freely because it pivots to all directions very easily.
There are two support rods in the Full Set, one bended for playing sitting down and a straight for playing in standing up position.
When comparing the ERGObassoon with the seat strap, no weight in your left arm. This is because it supports from the point of gravity, not from the bottom part. And you can turn the instrument very freely .
