I know there has to be others bass players that have had this problem and Id like some advice on how youve dealt with it. In the band I play with we have one guy (who will remain nameless) who starts out at a reasonable volume, but as the night goes on he keep turning up, needless to say at the end off the night its painfully LOUD. We have told him over and over about the volume, but he just cant seem to help himself and continues to crank it up. So I figure the next best thing for me to do is get some earplugs, Im just not sure what kind of earplugs I should use. I know there are plenty of different kinds out there but is there anything on the market that is better suited for filtering out all the high volume painful stuff but still let you hear the music well enough to play.
