“that bass… is just too damn loud!”?
Well, if it’s a seated concert then I’m afraid there is not a lot you can do… just stick it out. But on a high note, if you’ve bought yourself a standing ticket, I have a beautiful solution for you… try moving.
You see, low frequencies (like the kind bass guitars make) have very different characteristics to the small wavelength frequencies you come across more often in daily life.
