Hi Kevin, yup I have a bit of tinnitus. Also have some hearing loss in the high ranges from eardrum scarring due to repeated ear infections when I was young. Note to any parents, ear infections may not be a minor thing if you hope your kid will grow up to be a musician. Sure, being in loud rock/punk bands for many years didn't do my hearing any good either, but that caused considerably less hearing loss than the ear infections did.
My tinnitus is at a high enough pitch that I can usually work around it. It is just kind of like if there was a small high pitched digital alarm clock constantly going off nearby. I've learned to mostly ignore it. Some days it is worse than others. On bad days, digital tuners are a nice invention.
But I would guess that yours may be worse than mine if you have trouble hearing a violin.
