"Yeah, I have about 94-95% loss in both ears. Without the HAs, I pretty well deaf.  Happily, I am employed with a good insurance plan, allowing me to get these high-tech hearing aids and the FM system I use.  It's still not perfect, as…"

"I guess my hearing loss may not be that bad. I can hear OK on the phone and needed the aids for conversation. I just couldn't hear well enough in meetings at work. The thing I noticed when I got the hearing aids just what I had gradually come…"

"Hey, Phill. I wear hearing aids, too. When programming them, I took a guitar into the audiologist's office and we played with a special setting, one of three available, to optimize for the guitar. It also helped with background "clutter…"

"Jim, whenever I see a huge volume of emails that so and so has joined every forum in sight, it is likely a spammer. I saw the one today about banks having money to lend. It's hard to believe these morons see any success from these intrusions!"

Yeah, I have about 94-95% loss in both ears. Without the HAs, I pretty well deaf.  Happily, I am employed with a good insurance plan, allowing me to get these high-tech hearing aids and the FM system I use.  It's still not perfect, as you cannot recover fully from hearing loss, nature has not provided enough backup.  I don't like to dwell on it, and just go about playing as I can. I have another friend in the same kind of shape, and she's actually touring and recording - what an inspiration she's been, too.  I guess my message to young folks is to hold your senses dear, protect them, and keep them from the hazards of our trade as best you can.  With a good sound man, you really don't need push the volume to 10.

Hope you like the Phos.Bronze.Let me know.

Thanks for the info.Interesting story about the Lowden.

The Elixir nanowebs are slightly brighter sounding than the polywebs.

I am a bit of a string nerd,lol.Have you tried the Elixir phosphor bronze? I think these sound best on spruce topped guitars, whereas on cedar top the nanowebs are best.

Hi Ed,

Thanks for your comment. I've had stickers on my Ovation for 5 years now that my grand daughter placed there. Better than custom inlays.
