The Show Must Go On: Gator’s Masks Protect Singers from Any Unwanted Show Stoppers

In its commitment to protect musicians, bands, singers, music educators, and students, Gator designed instrument and face mask solutions that follow recommendations from the NFHS’ (National Federation of State High Schools) performing arts aerosol study.

“We wanted to be very thorough and thoughtful in our research and development, so we connected directly with NFHS on their scientific studies to ensure our product adhered to data-driven recommendations,” said Crystal Morris, CEO of Gator Co.,

“Gator was attentive to our recommendations from the International Performing Arts Aerosol Study,” said James Weaver, NFHS Director of Performing Arts and Sports and Study Chair. “They took a listen-test-and-learn approach to create products that effectively address the findings of the study.”

“After releasing our standard face masks and bell covers, we were asked for a solution for French horn players who perform using “hand-stopping (see image),” said Rob McCoy, Gator’s Product Management Director. “We were also asked for a solution for vocal performances, so we applied the same design thinking to create singers’ masks.”

Gator’s double-layer French horn bell covers range from 11 to 13 inches in diameter and are made of a reusable, hand washable lycra fabric with an elastic closure to keep the cover secured to the bell opening while in use.

The aerosol filtering singer masks include triple-layered protection while keeping space between the mouth and interior front wall of the mask for proper breathing and clear enunciation.
All masks are available in various sizes for the perfect fit. Together, the bell cover and instrument face mask provides full protection for any wind instrument musician or singer.
