#1 in our 'Meet the Maker' series featuring Omer deutsch from od guitars
Meet The Maker
Welcome to our 'Meet the Maker' series of professional woodworker profiles. We're showcasing some of the best 'maker' talent out there including Luthiers, Plectrum makers (yes really, and they're super talented) and furniture makers. And they're all really talented people that care for their health and safety at work, that's why they all use Stealth Mask N100 Dust Masks.
From small beginnings as hobbyists, Omer Deutsch, and partner Tali Deutsch now make some of the most sought after instruments in the world. Working on their own, each guitar is a labour of love, built with the full involvement of the client from concept to delivery. Used to wearing bulky and uncomfortable respirator masks Omer and Tali reached out to us for a more user friendly alternative - Read the full interview here
So, Omer, what's the deal with you and Stealth Mask?
"Clean air is a big thing in a wood based workshop. I keep upgrading the vac system but there is no substitute for a mask. Since I got Stealth Masks I've noticed how clear and easy it is to breath when I'm working and I can wear it all day with no problems.
The best sign of clean air breathing is when you take your mask off and all your airways are clear, and this is what happens when I wear Stealth Masks".

What's a Luthier you ask?
The short answer is anyone that makes stringed instruments.
Instrument making, and particularly what we would call 'Signatured' handmade stringed instrument making, is as old as the hills; we all know the astral sphere level prices that a Stradivarius fetches at auction with the The ‘Lady Blunt’ Stradivarius going under the hammer at £9.8 million in 2011.
Current makers don't quite reach those heights but a base level made to order electric guitar can currently be had for between 2 and 3 thousand pounds.
Maker. Problem solver. Craftsman.
This @stealthmaskofficial is great. Fits my face, even though I have a beard. The air release is at the bottom and I don’t get any fogging of safety glasses like I used to get as the air doesn’t leak out of the top. It’s so comfortable I’ve had it on for about an hour or two with no problems.
This isn’t an ad by the way, I really do think it’s the best mask out there and I’m glad to finally have one that works!

Unlike people, all masks are not created equal, and only some, such as the Stealth N100 respirator mask, earn the coveted NIOSH-certification. Respirator masks are the most protective masks available because of their verified superior filters and their tight face seal, achieved by fitting straps over the head or behind the neck. Proper fit and use of NIOSH-certified respirator masks are a primary reason we haven’t seen every doctor and nurse who treated out millions of COVID-positive patients get COVID-19.

Brothers Darren and Gavin Grainger both come from well established precision engineering backgrounds, covering a comprehensive range of disciplines such as hydraulics, CNC machining, 3D CAD design and motor-sport fabrication. So, it is when you combine this level of expertise with their love of music, and a fascination in particular with the electric guitar, it was perhaps almost inevitable that Grainger Guitars was born.Grainger Guitars
