The Frame Strap System fits both cello and double bass. Set over the shoulder like a guitar strap, the frame holds the cello or bass out from the body in the ideal position for bow and pizzicato technique. In addition to the vertical position, the neck can be angled horizontally like a guitar for picking and strumming. Convenient height and angle adjustments allow players to accommodate personal styles of play. Lightweight frame design has triangulated body contact points to provide a high degree of stability and comfort. A single wing nut secures the instrument in place for fast set-up and breakdown.
