Instrument Bell covers

Double-layered instrument bell covers for brass and woodwind instruments

 

As endorsed by the

Band Association of NSW

 

Following collaborative work on physical distancing between NSW Health and the Band Association of NSW, it is recommended that instrumentalists use tailored barriers, or bell covers, to mask droplets when playing.

 

The recent Performing Arts Aerosol Study has shown that certain barriers are known to reduce COVID-19 transmission and do not interfere with playing or sound quality.

 

These synthetic covers provide a 'mask' for aerosols. Each cover is a double-layer of spandex fabric that stretches over the bell. As with face masks, multiple layers have been found to be more effective at blocking small particles than single layers. The double layering creates a denier rating of 140+, well in excess of (single layer) 70 denier nylon fabrics, and is recommended by the study.

 

Features:

  • Covers the bell of woodwind and brass instruments

  • Creates a barrier for droplets and germs

  • Is machine washable for repeat use and is lightweight

  • Easy on/off with built-in elastic designed to minimize air leakage

  • Sizes range from cornets, clarinets to tubas

  • Minimal effect on the sound of instruments

  • Minimal dB reduction


The colours available are black or white. Price is approx. $19.95 each plus postage and handling.

Please allow 14 - 21 days for delivery.

 

Instrument bell covers increase assurance against aerosol transmission and are recommended

for brass and wind players.
