Anyone here still playing? I recently decided to learn to play guitar, and I have noise induced tinnitus. I have both an acoustic and electric. I personally think the noise of the acoustic is to loud and doesn't exactly sound good when you play metal on it I much rather play unplugged, or on low volume on my small practice amp. The volume control is so much better and it doesn't resonant as much... I notice that many people here seem to abandon the electric and amp. If played at reasonable volumes or with dual ear protection, I am not sure there is a problem. Anyone have any opnions or preferences?? I play as schecter c-1 plantinum on a small blackstar amp...not sure I will ever rock out to its full potential out of fear, though I am pretty sure dual protection is good enough..it still sounds good plugged up.
