Tampa, FL,- In its continued commitment to protecting musicians, bands, singers, music educators, and students, Gator has released the flute and piccolo mask to help stop the spread of aerosols during performances. All of Gator’s PPE offerings are specifically designed to follow recommendations from the NFHS’ (National Federation of State High Schools) performing arts aerosol study.
Gator is the leading brand of cases, stands and support system solutions for the music, pro-AV, creative pro, IT, and general utility industries.

“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.”
The wind instrument double-layer face mask by Gator allows you to play your flute or piccolo comfortably, without having to remove your face covering. The GBOMFLUTEPIC-MSK features a convenient slot for inserting the instrument, along with adjustable, elastic ear straps and a bending nose wire to ensure maximum comfort and proper fitment. Whether you’re playing in a school performance, concert hall, or event venue, Gator has the perfect solution to ensure you’re performing in a protected environment.
The wind instrument face mask is added to Gator’s growing PPE offerings including the singer mask. 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.
Additional offerings include instrument bell covers that come with a pocket for a replaceable MERV 13 filter (included) are made from a breathable fabric. The material allows for little to no back pressure or acoustic loss during play, keeping your performance quality top-notch. The GBELL Cover Series fits a wide variety of wind and brass instruments from clarinets to large tubas and range in size between 2 and 32-inches. The 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.
