I'm thinking it might be time to bite the bullet and start using ear plugs for gigs. Like a lot of you, I've always hated ear plugs because of how different they make things sound; they end up being more of a distraction than anything else. But my ears have taken enough of a beating over the years that maybe I ought to try ear plugs again. Basically the perfect earplug would make everything sound just the same, only quieter--which I know sounds obvious, but every time I tried them in the past they just made everything sound weird. I also don't want to buy a super expensive custom set (please don't lecture me about this). Any suggestions?
