Who has not quickly reached for a student’s instrument in order to demonstrate that the problem is not with that instrument but with insufficient practice ? Herpes is often the reward next morning. There is a high risk of contact infections from mouthpieces – and whilst herpes is not dangerous, yet it is unpleasant. Particularly woodwind instruments are affected due to the open-pored organic material they are made of - in combination with the humid-warm climate it is an ideal culture medium for bacteria, viruses and fungi. So players of woodwinds are much more at risk than their colleagues in the brass department. Heyday's has developed a simple solution which surpasses present standards. For all who have high hygienic standards and care responsibly for their own health as well as that of others …
Heyday's MP Refresh Wood is the first long-term disinfection for mouthpieces and reeds of woodwinds made of wood or arundo donax as well as whole instruments. In contrast to common disinfecting sprays or gas sterilization, its anti-microbiotic and virus-inactivating effect lasts up to seven days after one single use. Heyday's MP Refresh Wood is ideal for the use in schools, music schools, and kindergartens offering instruments played by numerous musicians as it is the case with student instruments, rental instruments, and instruments at music expositions etc.
Heyday's MP Refresh Wood takes an extensive micro-biological effect against bacteria and germs within five minutes. Furthermore, it protects against fungal bacteria such as M. terra, M. tuberculosis, and M. avium within 10 additional more minutes. Within 30 seconds, Heyday's MP Refresh Wood builds up an antiviral effect against hepatitis B and C, HIV, influenza, herpes, BVDV, and vaccines (“limited antiviral agent” according to DVV). Its effectiveness was proven similarly to the internationally recognized ASTM E 2180 test. Heyday's MP Refresh Wood does not bear any health or dermatological risks. Its bio-compatibility was proven according to DIN EN ISO 109931.
