The Silent Killer - Variphone

Every drummer knows the feeling after a performance without hearing protection, when their ears are ringing or they experience temporary hearing loss. It is important for drummers to protect their ears properly, as you often take the hits, and prevention is always better than cure, as the saying goes. Always think carefully about what you do.
