Bananas for tinitus!
perhaps rubbing banana oil on some wood and mounting my amplifier to the wood will improve the sound ? (remember the snake oil guy with the magic varnish ?)

Perhaps rubbing banana oil on some wood and mounting it over your ears will protect your hearing?

Magic ancient varnish has also been invoked as the reason why a 17th century Stradivarius is worth millions today.

(Even though two fairly comprehensive tests have shown that musicians actually prefer modern violins that cost far less than 'Strads: Million-dollar Strads fall to modern violins in blind ‘sound check’ | Science | AAAS )

Snake oil and magic varnish are everywhere!

They do but they are hard to attach properly.

Health industry involves world's top leading snake oil and that is a long time before electronics arrive...

In a recent thread on diyAudio about loudness-induced hearing damage, someone posted electron microscope images showing patches of hair-cells in the inner ear that had been destroyed by excessive loudness. I can't think of a way in which any of the minerals found in bananas can possibly prevent or reverse this damage.

Worth noting: the original ABC.net.au story includes the words "It doesn't mean that if you eat a lot of bananas, which are rich in potassium, it would cure the hearing loss but it can help maintain the optimum level of potassium to preserve the hearing."

So the claim seems to be that bananas can't reverse existing hearing loss, but might possibly maintain potassium levels that might possibly reduce additional hearing loss? It really isn't very clear.

I was reading those articles and I had the same impression as when a newbie in electronics finds how to eliminate psu ripple just to end to a very high impedance... Milk is vital for children and nature made them able to digest it. Milk will help to increase calsium levels up to the age of 25. From there on the best we can do is maintain those levels. Eventualy, they will start decreasing no matter what we do. Osteoblasts will die together with the rest of us and not because of overloading. But there is a problem with milk and older people because we gradually loose the ability to digest it. Vitamin D means nothing without the sun and that is surely missed in Norway.

Our body needs a tiny amount of potassium daily. Perhaps one bite of a banana? I don't know for sure. If there is no banana around we will take potassium from other sources. It could be many things, even junk food but then it will come along with fat and Exxx. But this isn't a reason not to eat those if you want my humble opinion. Just don't eat only that. And not only bananas.

Australia was found in the middle of this. It makes me wonder... It surely is in the middle of America and Asia. Is there a chinese competitor for united fruit?

PS. Banana is oneof the most easier word to type!

I heard a long discussion amongst some classic musicians about this on the radio a while back.
It is not about the inherent sound quality, it is about the each specific individuals connection with the instrument. The musicians often have several variations of an instrument, each with it's own small differences and quirks, for some things a off-the-shelf violin may be good enough, a modern violin hand made especially for the person involved for most uses, and sometimes a Stradivarius for the right occasion.
*Knowing* the weaknesses of an instrument, and using them as a benefit can be seen as a challenge, it takes time to adapt to an instrument and circumventing every small weakness.

I tried banana but got silly remarks from others as they stuck out rather a long way and they kept falling out!
