Thread: Bell cover

  1. Bell cover

    Can anyone recommend a bell cover for euphonium? There are alot available, but I don't know if they're all the same and equally effective.

    I'd like to know as well. My usual source for such things had bell covers for all the brass, except... Well, you know.

  3. The purpose of a bell cover is to reduce emission of particles, correct? I would think that with the length of tubing in a euph or tuba, that most if not all "aerosol" would condense and not be emitted from the bell. Just a guess, but maybe that is why bell covers are not readily available.

  4. I haven't had the chance (nor need) to try them yet, but it looks like Denis Wick has developed a line of bell covers for all brass instruments. I think they were released fairly recently, but the reviews I've seen on Facebook have been fairly positive.

    Willson 2900 TA-1 Euphonium - Denis Wick 4AM
    Yamaha YSL-643 Trombone - Bach 5G
    F.E. Olds Special Trombone (ca. 1941) - Faxx 7C

    Past:
    York Preference 3067 Euphonium - Denis Wick 4AL
    Benge 165F Trombone - Benge Marcellus
    Wessex BR140 Baritone - Denis Wick 6BS

  5. Our community band is preparing to get back to rehearsing with limiting conditions and caution. Understandably, we have many members requiring certain conditions before they participate, bell covers included. Maybe the DW covers will be a suitable choice. It's a strange new world for all of us. For me, not being able to produce beautiful music with my colleagues hurts.


  6. Helpful links, Mike, thanks.

    There's more aerosol from talking and breathing then playing tuba according to a recent study by the University of Minnesota. I would think it would be same with euphonium and baritone https://www.startribune.com/in-minne...rts/572784222/

    Denis Wick has a bell cover that's pretty cheap.
