 Re: Removing the top 3 trill keys?

Neck straps/slings do bugger all for posture or weight bearing on your right arm if the weight of the instrument is an issue. You're much better off using a support such as the RDG Bhob, but you will need a thumbrest fitted with a ring that lines up with the bore instead of sideways (perpendicular to the bore).

With a sling, you still have to push up with your right arm to get the playing posture you desire, otherwise the instrument will just want to point due south. If you have a curved barrel or metal crook with a considerable bend in it like a curved soprano sax crook, that will help keep the mouthpiece at a decent angle even though the instrument itself is pointing downwards.

Straight instruments aren't really designed to be supported by a sling and will naturally tip forwards/downwards as they'll want to hang upside down given where they hang from the hook. The only thing stopping that happening is your right hand and your top teeth.

Chris.
