I believe she definitely wants an upright but I’ll ask. Thanks fellas for the recommendations. I agree but it’s her call. She’s going through a trying time & feels getting back into playing w/ be therapeutic. I’m on board getting one for that reason & so all the money I spent yrs ago for lessons pays off.

I have had Howard Leight electronic ear muffs for going on 12 years now. They are a little beat up but work just fine.
As for eyes, I wear glasses normally, so I don't use anything but that. Never had an issue in over 40 years. Not saying it's not possible, I've just never seen anyone have an issue.

My ancient neighbor(long dead) called them Tojo beetles. Probably old enough no one would even know why that might be offensive. After all, all these protestors are ignorant of history before they were born.
