    What are the chances of an average gigging guitarist  getting accepted on this scheme? Averaging a gig a week at the moment. 
    High. All you need is two sources to 'prove' you're a musician, like a website and a soundcloud etc.

    Glad to see everyone is enjoying the fruits of my discovery! Mine are still going strong :)

    For anyone with any doubts about applying: they can only turn you down. You have nothing to lose. Even if you are only a 'bedroom' guitarist it's still worth making an application
    Guitarist/Drummer; Studio person, Composer, etc etc PM me for recording/tracking/mixing in the North West or via the 'net

    I've been accepted but heard nothing more since then. What's the timescale? Booked an appointment with GP to get my ears done but I have to wait until the 6th of June to see the doctor about making an appointment with the nurse!

    Just because you're paranoid, don't mean they're not after you

    You're gigging more regularly than me and I got accepted.

    Admittedly, I don't have an online presence to link to, so had the Head of Performing Arts at the school I teach at write a reference for me.

    They got in touch with me pretty quickly, but mainly because they had one of their people near me in the upcoming fortnight.  Might be worth giving them a call/email?

    Wooo, just got accepted.

    Am already over-thinking on filter choice. My gut feeling is that if I pick too high a -dB then playing would be so unenjoyable that I'd never wear them at all.  

    I'm sure they'll have advice though.

    They have a 30 day return policy for fitment and filters which is handy - but I'd recommend the Pro17s. They're pretty evenly attenuated across the frequency range.

    Just been approved.  Anyone know if these can be fitted onto IEM earphones?

    Perhaps I was too honest - I applied for this but was denied when I admitted that I don't make over 50% of my income from music (which is in the eligibility criteria). Despite gigging in 2 bands one of which has a horn section making for a loud environment.

    I just called and made my appointment, which is at the end of July as I'm too busy to take a day in London before then. If you're an MU Member it's £30 not £40 plus £4 shipping. Can't be bad.

    No, but ACS keep you impressions on file for 4 years to order some IEMs from them

    Just re-submit using a different email address, that's what I did.

    I'd *like* to make over 50% of my income from music, and may do soon... So I figured that counts
