These ear plugs are recommended for both solo and band players at both beginner and advanced playing levels. These ear plugs are specially designed for pipers as they perform a decibel reduction of 20 db without deadening the sound. Made from silicone, they are available in regular and large sizes. They come with a detachable hanging cord to hang the plugs comfortably around your neck as well as a storage container. These are a necessity for any highland musician.
One solo bagpipe will range at about 100 decibels (about as loud as a lawn mower) while a full pipe band will range at about 130 decibels (about as loud as a jet engine taking off). All players should begin with wearing ear protection as repeated exposure to these loud volumes will result in deafness over time.

Effectively muffled sound, but still allows you to hear what you're playing, even in pipe band settings. Comfortable to use.

I got a set of McCallum ear plugs for Christmas and I am amazed. They actually work and are comfortable since you can get the right size for your ears. The plugs do not distort the sound you hear so that you can hear the tune and the pipes' tuning. I will actually use these.
