Product info-Sunday 28th June 2020:
By using this device the airstream is effectively reflected back at the player and reduces the onward projection of the airstream , enabling you to hear your own sound really accurately, apart from also being a very useful way of keeping your airstream to yourself! It’s unobtrusive and comfortable to use too.
As a teaching or practising aid, I think this can be invaluable, as you hear your sound reflected back from very nearby, enabling you to hear what other people hear – and then you can make adjustments to your sound using this feedback.
NB: the strong flow of air comes out of your mouth only. Sound-waves emerge from the end of the flute and from the tone-holes (you can measure this using a candle flame if you are interested!)
Diameters of flute head joints that the FluteShield will fit:
• Cork End: 17 – 19mm
• Body End: 19 – 22mm
The Fluteshield does not stop the spread of Covid-19 or any other viruses or bacteria. The FluteShield simply allows a player to not blow directly at whatever is in front of them. A Fluteshield is not personal protective equipment. In circumstances where Personal Protective Equipment is recommended you should consult a healthcare professional.
