Find me a professional musician (brass player) that plays acoustically to large crowds and I'll show you a broke musician.

 

May I suggest:

Lead & section Players in Big Bands. 

Principal & Section Players in Symphony Orchestras.

My good friend is a touring Lead Player & Broadway Pit Orchestra musician, MANY large crowds. Most would not consider his acoustically-earned six figure salary to be in the "broke" category.

Love the irony that the same crowd who gets all moist reminiscing about "getting my face melted off" by brash, loud G Bugle lines are now deeply concerned about hearing damage for everyone because of the volume.  

Natural acoustic sound is fine. Amplification with its unnatural, distorted sound and is what destroys hearing. I've always felt that drum corps contests should be about wind and muscle, not electrons. Don't we get enough electrons from everything else? The loss of bugles was a shame, but the irresponsible decibel arms race is just unhealthy.

how is there irony in people reminiscing about loud acoustic brass, but not wanting "wergleoooooooozzzzzzzhrrrrrrrrrrmmmmmmmmmmmm" blasted through a mic at the same or greater volume?

i think that shows a lack of understanding of the word "irony".  

is this one of those things like tweens calling anybody of any age over 20 who doesn't agree with them "boomer" even though boomers are in their 70s, or constantly using "literally" to mean "figuratively"?  

what's the world coming to, lol?

Good God, you're old.  lol  :dancin:

It is usually children, or people who act like children, who call adults boomers.  Nuff said.

I'd rather be the adult than the child, thankyouverymuch.

My sister is a Gen X, too.  We also were born one years apart.

i'm 43, and have always thought of myself as gen x/y because Xennial sounds stupid. 

we're an interesting group because we had roughly equal amounts of our life with and without the internet.  i was part of the last class at my school that learned to type on an actual typewriter, too. that was my senior year of high school when not everybody even needed to know how to type because again, no internet.   

also, i like loud acoustic brass, but i don't like mic'd up amp cheese. okay boomer.
