Thread: ear plugs

  1. Default ear plugs

    Anyone ever use foam ear plugs for a popper body? Some of these ear plugs are perfectly shaped to scoop water and taper well toward the bend but I can't tell what would happen when they were in water for a long time.

    hell of an idea! I can think of lots of reasons why it might not work, but I'd rather you prove me wrong. Just try to stick with the ones that look sealed on the outside.

    The squishy texture might make bass hold on longer too!

    Would guess that all of them are probably some type closed cell foam, otherwise the sound might go right on through the air passages. However, that might also be some of the design by using the passages as baffles. I just don't know much about them. If they've been used before, the ear wax might be a problem.LOL
    I have a pair in my desk (don't know where they came from) but they're tapered and have a molded tube coming out that the string is attached to. I've seen a lot of them that look like nothing more than foam cylinders punched from a sheet of foam.
    Let us know if they turn out good for you.

    The ear wax is what keeps them water proof.....
    The ones I have are shaped rougly like tall skinny bells.
    If I get something tied up soon, I will take a picture and post it for laughs.

    So THATS how they make Mucilin! I always thought there was something to the fact that the name starts out the same as "mucus".
