Do I need earplugs when I practice ? I play the alto sax at home and my girl said that its loud . So should i wear earplugs or only when on gigs
You'll still hear yourself fairly loud when playing saxophone with earplugs because of the internal vibrations which will also give you a distorted perception of you tone, it's very different on flute.Lol ok I am really a flute player by trade so its a learning experience !
The custom ones will sound weird too.I've been wondering about this too because when I practice my Conn 10M tenor in my studio room it is frickin loud I'll tell you and I just use a 7* hard rubber link copy mouthpiece. I've always been told I had a loud sound for a regular sized guy with limited lungs but this thing can get ridiculous loud so I feel like it could damage what hearing I have left. I'm thinking of trying the custom plug thingbecasue the regulars ones sound weird.
Don't stand in front of your horn when you play. :twisted:Anything over 90 dB is harming. The saxophone can deliver more than that.
The sound coming from an exterior source will sound about the same, just quieter but there's still the problem of hearing more of yourself through your teeth and skull. Custom or not, it sounds weird to play wearing them.No they won't. IF, you get decent quality.
