Rock and Roll has a history with hearing loss, with artists like Ozzy Ozbourne, Eric Clapton, and Neil Young talking about permanent hearing loss sustained during decades of touring. The worst example comes from AC/DC frontman Brian Johnson who almost became deaf in 2016.
Performing live for over 40 years, AC/DC is one the loudest, most exciting live shows you will see. After years of massive tour headlines and countless albums, it finally caught up.
Thus, it is of the utmost importance to protect your hearing on stage, before it is too late.
Drummers are definitely the most susceptible to hearing loss, sitting so close to the drums, which, if they are acoustic drums, don’t have a volume knob. This means that even when practicing alone, it can be quite loud. In fact, the snare drum is the loudest single acoustic instrument there is!
Some of the best earplugs drummers can purchase are Earasers earplugs (the ones we reviewed), Eargasm’s High-Fidelity earplugs (also reviewed), and EarPeace HD Concert earplugs.
