I was in a band with a loud fiddle player, and sitting at the steel guitar put my head about at the level of his amp. Ouch. So I stood my case up on its end, put my cowboy hat on top of it and draped my band jacket over the whole thing and had a baffle. He was offended. Oh, well. Studio baffles are pretty heavy, but a small, portable one that you could take to a gig would be a real handy thing to have.

One thought on “Loud musicians”

  1. It seems like at every gig, I get to sit crammed up next to the drummer… my ears are right at cymbal level. I can’t wear ear plugs cause then I can’t hear my steel..I sometimes wear my hat just to try to deflect the noise.
    The last lead guitar player that blasted me, almost had his rig kicked over, he is very lucky that all I did was walk out. I think I am about done with those players that think that every freaking note they play needs to be heard by everyone on the freaking galaxy.
