    Great pics of a legend with iconic guitars.....[thumbup]

    They are priceless with that kind of provenance......

    Musical instruments are designed to look desirable....and when their sound quality connects with an individual on an emotional level they can be difficult to resist....:blink:

    Even to the extent of spending over budget....

    This applies across the whole spectrum of trade tools.....[biggrin]

    I have an ongoing banter with a band member.....a notional budget of say 2000 can be 'blown' on one high end instrument.....[thumbup] careful research.....spent on several good looking, well finished, good sounding instruments in the 300 to 500 bracket....

    Which from personal experience can provide robust work horses with varying woods, finishes, neck profiles, body sizes, tunings etc...


  3. In Topic:Tinnitus and hearing damage

    18 July 2017 - 02:27 AM

    A timely revisit to a serious and relevant subject......[thumbup]

    I sometimes think that audience members are more at risk than musicians on stage....depending on frequency (how often).....

    One slight irony, still unpleasant , is the hyperacusis at certain frequencies which can accompany hearing loss/tinnitus etc....

    My main recent issue has been hearing normal conversation at a noisy venue

    The audiologist plotted an informative graph which revealed 7db loss of upper 'speech' frequencies....not enough to require a hearing aid...

    I returned 2 weeks later for a follow up consultation and reported continuing issues (and not hearing well on the telephone) was given 2 well adjusted digital hearing aids.....good to have as back up....

    I also had moulds taken for in-ear defenders for motorcycling....120 a pair....compared to 5 for the squeezy roll-up type.....:blink:

    Big improvement....very comfortable and less likelihood of pushing wax further in to the ear

    Vertigo comes and goes.....

    All part of the pageant of 'misspent youth' and other day to day factors.....:-({|=
