Denis Wick is working with a leading north textile company to produce new stretchable cup covers that reduce the risk of harmful airborne droplets and aerosols produced by copper blowers. The covers are very easy to apply and make no noticeable difference to the sound of the instrument. The player may notice a very small difference in response in the high register, but the sound remains the same, from low to high.
This product will be popular with both school, amateur bands and professional brass. The safest way to play Brass and Wood blow music is outside, with the recommended distance between players of 2m - 3.5m. If you play indoors with a minimum distance (2 m) between the players, the bell cover can greatly reduce the spread of germs. Keep in mind that valves and valves can also spread germs, so make sure you have a cloth or paper on hand to collect the instrument's water and that you throw the paper away safely.
