Just to amend my previous statements, whether you're just jamming or gigging, I would suggest you feed a mix to a combination of shaker and headphone. I think mounting the shaker to the back of a chair so that you can lean into it might be optimum. Take out the hearing aids and just give yourself a direct feed. That way you can give yourself a more comfortable eq and mix everything to your needs.

yeah...I just wonder what the cost of something like that is..I'm at the mercy of the gubbament (disability) pay....

well, it depends on what you've already got. Assuming that you already have some kind of PA with a free aux/monitor feed, then the Clark tactile transducer is $100 https://www.parts-express.com/pe/showdetl.cfm?partnumber=300-861 and you could probably find an old 100 watt amp for $50 or less. Unless you have a chair ready to sacrifice, I'd suggest visiting some goodwill/thrift stores and try to find an old chair - preferably something with a solid wood seat and back - or latticed so that you can add a solid board yourself. It shouldn't cost more than $200, but I imagine that you can scrounge up everything except the shaker from friends.

No,I do not have any kind of PA..I live on a very meager budget..I have to scrape for every little piece of equipment I own. SSD disability pay does not go very far...Its why I have to have every guitar I own modded in some way because I cant really afford to buy anything worth a fuck...
