    Head restraints for w.w. players?

    I'm sure what I see in the video linked below are not head restraints for some of the woodwind players but a way to muffle the sound of the brass players behind them. I'm used to seeing Plexiglass of some sort but never a 'head rest' of sort. I think I might want to take a nap if I had one of these. The video is of the Swedish Navy Corps Band playing a Christmas concert.

    Miraphone 5050 - Warburton Brandon Jones sig mpc
    YEP-641S (recently sold)
    Doug Elliott - 102 rim; I-cup; I-9 shank

    El Cumbanchero (Raphael Hernandez, arr. Naohiro Iwai)
    Greensleeves (arr. Alfred Reed)

  3. Or how about this guy (on the right) at 16:46. He's all zenned out. No neck restraint/emotive inhibitor.
