    Acoustic bass

    I have a vintage acoustic & I've found all the cheaper acoustic basses have poor intonation .

    There is a make called Knops ,they allow you to control the ambient volume ...I don't gig for a living & I just don't enjoy the sound when wearing my ACS plugs So I'm going too stop .I might treat myself to a nice acoustic for home ,any suggestions?

    Has anyone else stopped gigging due to this .. I've got it mildly , wearing ACS earplugs isn't doing it for me it's cutting out all the ambient sounds & the Dr says wear them or stop gigging :(.

    ACS ear protecton

    I went for a test & it's fine apart from the fact I've had mild tinnitus for the past 3 weeks since my drummer wacked a drum right in my ear when setting up .

    ACS ear protecton

    On the last gig I used Pro 17 They cut 15 db across all the frequency range , I had been using Pro 10s they cut only about 5db on the lower range & 15db on the higher .The guy that fitted them at spec Savers said that He played in bands & preferred these .

    ACS ear protecton

    I've done a bout 20 gigs with the Pro 10 & 17s for me the difference is that all the overtones harmonics (zing) punch is lost ,When I play at very low volume I don't loose all these tones . Also on the drums I can hardly hear the cymbals . As it clearly is a case of protecting my hearing I think I'll just stop gigging as I can't see the point of spending a considerable amount on amps & not being able to enjoy the sound they produce .I'll give them another 6 months .

    Does anyone use these ? I've recently started using them & yes I can hear everything on the same level But I just can't get into the atmosphere of what a gig should be, something is missing ?
