I feel like these things are not worth the trouble. Where I am, we just take the mask off while playing and then put it back on after. No fussing with useless masks with holes and bell covers.
Well Israel is probably dealing with the pandemic a lot better than the US.

Re: Masks for Musicians?

My director tried to enforce something like that but some parents complained to the school about “discrimation”. Anyways, what he had us do is just cut a hole in a cloth mask where it overlaps normally so that when we don’t play it would still close. I still use mine and can provide pics if you want.

Check if there’s a glob of solder in the tuning slide, one of colleagues is not a trombone player and left a glob of solder in a tuning slide and didn’t feel a difference. I did, felt like what you described

Trombone players sometimes perform the Bach Cello suites in public, and some of us trombone players appreciate them; I've yet to meet a nontrombone player who thinks they sound good on trombone.
