Chris Ghent Posted November 21, 2012 Author Share Posted November 21, 2012 And, since you ask, I have never come across a really screaming wood end job, (although it would have to be a Jeffries wouldn't it?) Just to reply to Dirge here.........Paul Read and myself each had a Dipper made as sisters a couple of years ago that are quite the loudest anglos I've heard (and I have heard many Jeffries)...........both wooden ended. To this point; I've started wearing a soft ear-plug in my right ear after about a year ago I found had a constant pain in my right ear after playing this thing.......I realized that part of the problem was that I was sitting about three feet away from a window on my RHS when practising and I think the very loud sound was being reflected straight back at me....this never happened with a Jeffries (same keys) I've now moved to a different place but still use an ear plug for this particular Dipper. I should also note that that at our Toronto English session in a downtown pub, the acoustics are aweful but I can always hear Paul's instrument. Robin Robin, for this same reason I can't play in cars. Interestingly I find the reflection from windows is very high frequency. I do sometimes wonder what it is like to sit next to me at a session. Do you recognise a difference between loud and piercing? Would you describe your Dippers as screamers? Cheers Chris Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
