The Neotech Tuba Harness conforms to the shape of your body and evenly disperses the weight of the instrument while absorbing the shock of your movements. The neoprene pad forms a comfortable and stable yolk across the top of the back and shoulders. The cushion stays just where you need it -no matter the amount of moving and grooving you do while playing. The self-adjusting harness freely glides through the hardware located in the back which increases your mobility without sacrificing comfort. The Neotech Tuba Harness is designed with both men and women in mind for the comfortable fit.The unique attachment system offers two connection options to fit most types of tubas. One option offers a cradle for the lower section of the instrument made of a unique wrap support. It is covered in a non-marring material to protect against abrasion to the tuba's finish. This option is ideal for tubas that do not have an attachment eyelet located on the lower section. The second option offers loop connectors that can be attached directly to the eyelet located on the lower section of some tubas. These loops then attach to the snap hooks on the main body of the Neotech Tuba Harness.

One thing not mentioned by other reviewers is the size of the tuba. For example 4/4 tubas vary a lot in height. Mine is a Hirsbrunner 4/4 BBb horn. It is shorter and wider than a kaiser-style tuba (Miraphone 186 and many others). Horns made by most good companies (Adams, B&S, Hirsbrunner, Miraphone, Meinl, and others) can come in either configuration. I don't know if the junior size harness will fit by Hirsbrunner but I do know that the regular size is too long. Frustrating!
So after writing this review, I decided to try the straps that go on the bottom bow as opposed to those that go on the tuba loops. This worked better but it is still a difficult job to make a fit. In all I spent 3 hours trying to make this harness work. If I was a leather worker, I would customize a harness to use the 4 loops on my tuba and have it fit me exactly.
I settled on purchasing this Neotech Harness and have been very satisfied and relieved ever since. There were no written instructions received with the strap, only a couple of pictures. This should be corrected. Some simple instructions would be sufficient. So figuring out how to set it up was a bit tricky initially but after that I have had no problems with this harness.
The harness is well designed to distribute the weight of the instrument evenly across your shoulders and upper back as it supports the tuba from the large bend at the bottom (playing position) and one of the bends near the valves. It is very comfortable as I can stand or march and paly for long periods with this harness. Most likely I will buy another one as a spare.
The product seems of good quality, and there’s a lot of options to harness it seems like, but I couldn’t figure out how to use it on either of my tubas.
Now for the bad... the sizing is poorly thought out. I'm 6'1" and the "regular" straps are far too long. My mouthpiece misses my face by about 3" with the straps shortened to the max. I would need to tilt my head like a chicken or pull the horn up with my left arm to play with good posture.
I just ordered the JUNIOR size and I'll be sending the regular back. Don't just take it from me (see other reviews here and on TubeNet that account the same issue). Order a size SMALLER than logic would dictate, especially if your horn doesn't have built-in attachment points (the extra strap accessories will add length).
I hope this review helps. It's really a fine product with a few sizing quirks.
