Andy Scott will be launching an exciting new purpose-designed product for saxophonists this summer.
Libero is the world’s first and only adjustable saxophone sling spacer, and has been developed by Andy Scott in collaboration with engineer Ian Sanger. By preventing a traditional sling from constricting the sides of the neck, Libero enables players to free up their breathing, thereby achieving a better sound. This can transform a saxophonist’s playing for a relatively small investment.
Libero has the flexibility to be used with any saxophone sling, making it ideal for players who prefer to use different slings for different sizes of saxophone. It can be used with players’ existing favourite sling(s), removing any need to adapt to a different style of sling, and can even be adjusted while playing. Although designed for the saxophone player, Libero is equally suitable for clarinet players who choose to play with a neck sling.
Libero is a stylish high quality accessory, designed to last a lifetime. It is designed to be quickly fitted and removed, and can be adjusted very easily, even while playing. Other benefits include distributing some weight to the chest, enabling fine height adjustment of the mouthpiece and facilitating low note production for beginners. Libero will initially be available in black or silver colour, with solid brass end clamps. Watch this space for future developments!
Libero is currently in production and will be available exclusively from this website from July 2015.
