Crossed shoulder strap harness system for heavy or larger instruments: effective, comfortable and flexible
The ultimate strap system for all body shapes and sizes, individually adjustable strap system for sambistas from S-XXL, particularly suitable for large or heavy instruments such as surdos and timbals or for players who appreciate an even distribution of the instrument's weight to relieve the strain on the back, shoulders and hips. A high-quality and lightweight strap with a wide range of functions!
- even weight distribution
- available in individual sizes
- more stability especially when moving around
- flexible adjustability: the harness system can be adjusted to any body shape and size
- unrestricted chest space when playing (more playing comfort especially for the ladies, and you can still see the band logo on your T-shirt!)
- made of quality materials
Especially suitable for:
Surdos, timbals but also for snares and repiniques. Besides Samba instruments, you can also use the harness for djembés.
Take your time to adjust the strap:
The strap has to be adjusted when you put it on for the first time and occasionally readjusted. The shoulder straps, the hip belt and the back diamond should fit comfortably when under load and should not be too tight. Once the harness is adjusted, your samba fun is unstoppable.
Finding the right size:
MAX harness sizes are unisex, following the US standard S-XXL.
The basis is the body length for a normal slim figure:
S: 1.50 to 1.60 cm
M-L: 1.60 to 1.75 cm
XL: 1.80 to 1.90 cm
XXL: 1.90 cm or larger
However, the straps must also grow in width, they do not only refer to body length.
S: 1.60 cm but a bit curvier: M-L
M-L: 1.62 cm but very slim: S
M-L: 1.68 cm but slightly big: M-L
M-L: 1.65 cm but quite big: XL
M-L: 1.72 cm but somewhat big: XL
XL: 1.85 cm but rather big: XXL
XXL: 1.90 cm but rather big: XXXL
Note for adult sizes:
The breast circumference of the ladies does not play a role in the choice of size as the MAXGurt shoulder straps run down on both sides along the breast.
A larger belly circumference also does not play a major role in the standard MAXGurt model, as the carabiner straps run along the side of it.
Note for children's sizes:
All straps of the harness can be shortened continuously, i.e. a size S can be made as small as needed. Any excess strap bits can be tucked away or flamed off.
Note about spare parts:
We recommend that you always purchase spare parts of the same brand as your instrument to ensure fit and function. We cannot assume any warranty for different-brand combinations. If you are looking for a spare part that you cannot find on our site, please contact us!

IVSOM in Brazil
IVSOM is a producer of authentic Samba instruments in Rio de Janeiro. The brand name is a wordplay with his own name which is Ivson, and the Braziliain word for sound which is 'som'. Before becoming self-employed, Ivson absolved a profound formation in the metalworking craft sector. Ivson has been an active sambista for many years. He plays caixa for Mocidade, his wife and business partner Luciana plays the chocalho. Therefore he is very close to his clients and knows exactly, what is in demand. Ivson actively participates in the production of his instruments and makes excellent-quality instruments in a very well organized workshop. Some of Rio´s major Samba schools play his instruments. Quite frecuently Ivson surprises us with new features and innovations. Due to his close contact to the Samba scene, he is often the first to convert buzzing ideas and or incitations into useful inspiration for making new instruments. The IVSOM 'vasado' caixas and repiniques created the trend of instruments without bodies.
IVSOM in Europe
IVSOM instruments have gained high recognition amongst Hardcore Rio Sambistas in Europe within the last couple of years. Especially their good workmanship and the excellent sound of the drums have attracted the percussionist´s attenention over here. The number of IVSOM fans is growing larger each year.
IVSOM drums have a couple of untypical characteristics. For example, the tension rods are flush with the rim. This link is very stable and absolutely free of rattling noises, but a bit more time-consuming in its montage. The surdos have a neat detail concerning the rims of the body where the head rests. The body´s wall is rimmed around a 10 mm flat bar. With this the corpus is a lot more stable than other bodies where wire is used for reinforcement. Like this the drums obtain a smooth and flat rim for ideal head fitting. IVSOM´s reference product is the rocar..
