Thread: Netting over bell

  1. Netting over bell

    Hi Guys,
    When playing in a carnival is there a netting you can get to stop confetti from being thrown down your bell ?

    I have never tried this, but one of these might do the trick...cheaply!

    If you look around, you might find some fancy colors and frills!

    It appears that Adams sells these covers. Depending on how thick they are it may affect the sound though.

    Good find, Rick! I wonder if they sell those for dust covers or for parade-debris duty. I leave my horn on the Hercules stand every day. But it's in the basement and we have spiders and other bugs hanging out there. I cover my bell every day to make sure the little critters don't just fall into it.
