A Concert Bass Drum can sound like a Bomb going off.
I know people that it doesn't bother, tho
I still think it's a mistake to endure some Sound Levels w/o plugs.
And really, there isn't much that's louder than Big band in full roar.
Bob Mintzer compared a Big-Band to putting your head in a Jet Engine.
NOT Your Band, of course.
No, no, I didn't mean to suggest Your Band can't play loud, that's not what I meant...
I once went on the road with Andrew Lloyd Webber's roller skating fiasco "Starlight Express" for 10 months playing alto/bari/clar./flute. The band had 3 synth's, electric guitar, electric bass, electric drums, all playing ridiculously loud. PLUS -- the tenor/flute player and I sat directly in front of a percussionist who played tympani and orchestral bells among other things. There was a little plexiglass between him and us, but it was of little help.
The 2 trumpets and one bone in front of us played right into plexiglass in front of them, which sent their sound back to me and the tenor/flute player. To add to that all the horns were miked and fed into monitors. Despite the monitors I never heard a note when I played flute, and only heard clar. once in a while.
Eventually I was the only horn player who didn't wear ear plugs - a bad mistake on my part.
with the talking.
