Double-layered Face Masks from Gator

November 17, 2020

Gator introduced new multi-use double-layered face masks.

The patent-pending design adheres to recommendations from the NFHS study on aerosols. The masks, however, quickly became the perfect mask for lifestyle and leisure activities for anyone because its front-flap opening allows for eating and drinking while still wearing the mask. The masks are available in youth and adult sizes and have adjustable straps for comfort. The masks are also reusable and hand-washable.

Yamaha’s YDS-150 Digital Saxophone

Yamaha’s YDS-150 Digital Saxophone effectively emulates an authentic saxophone experience digitally—from the sound and key layout to feedback from the instrument—while maintaining the sense of unity between the saxophone and musician. Unlike MIDI Wind Controllers, the YDS-150 incorporates a key structure that replicates that of a traditional saxophone, offering players the natural feel to which they are accustomed. A genuine brass bell enhances the acoustic presence of the instrument thanks to the company’s new proprietary Integrated Bell Acoustic System technology. The instrument is Bluetooth equipped, enabling it to be paired with mobile devices through the “YDS Controller” app. Using the app, players can edit voices, customize saxophone fingerings, and adjust instrument settings such as resistance and response, as well as tuning.
