This little guy has worked wonders. Not only did I buy for the amazing deal around 5 dollars, but it slipped into my soundhole in 2 seconds, and even 'UNPLUGGED' this adds a a certain quality to the sound. OBviously I didn't buy it to use it unplugged.. So i plugged it in at the first gig with it, and sure enough; NO feedback whatsoever, so i was able to be louder in my mix than ever before, which only boosted the quality of the floor mix. It really did create great tone along with destroying the screech. 4.5 features because I'm sure this wont fit EVERY guitar, and 4.5 quality because the rubber does cling to skin particles and pick particles after fingerpicking. Does that bother me? Nah, it fits and it rocks! There is a little bit of blood around my soundhole from rocking anyways ;). Haha Overall I love this thing. Looks great too, just looks like a shadow when it is in. Cool!

The e-catalog description said they fit all standard guitars. In our home there are seven acoustic guitars; I bought three "Screeching Halt" hole plugs, and they don't fit any of the guitars. The catalog should make it very clear that the hole must be exactly 4" in diameter. I'll return the plugs.

Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Screaching Halt Guitar Soundhole Plug:

This sound hole plug is fine, IF it fits your guitar. Nice pliant rubber feel with no rough edges to scratch a guitar's finish.

No dimensions were listed, so I took a chance -- and lost. This plug will fit sound holes that are 4" to 4-1/16" in diameter. While it's priced very well (I had to lay out a lot more to buy one which was correctly sized to fit my Cordoba classical), it's a complete waste of money if it doesn't fit. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone who has a guitar with a 4" sound hole. Unfortunately, I don't.

    • Taming feedback onstage

    Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Screaching Halt Guitar Soundhole Plug:

    Use this onstage, in a on acoustic act, through a Bose L1 and a mixing board. Fits well in my main guitar, a Takamine LTD. Feedback hasn't been a huge problem generally, but there are some venues where the small stages force us to set up only a few feet from the PA. In these situations the only other solution is extreme eq, which robs my tone of the low end thump that is critical in helping the audience "feel" the rhythm. Using this thick rubber plug in the soundhole has almost completely solved the problem, something a thinner plastic cover did not. It is an acceptable compromise. However it will not fit in my Martin OM-28. I got it in there, but it is buckled up. Have not tried that setup on stage yet, so I'm not sure if it still wouldn't work just as well. Still I'm be happy to be able to get one that fit properly. That said the Tak grand auditorium shape lends itself better to my duo work, as it cuts the mix. A rich, complex sounding guitar like the Martin is difficult to amplify without using a mic as well as an onboard pickup.

        I bought this for my fender acoustic, i was so exiced to record with it. Sadly enough, i didn't fit. It would keep falling in and i kept forcing it till it ripped.

                  Use this cover on my Martin D28 and it fits perfectly. I didn't even have to loosen the strings to install it. Plus it seemed to give my guitar more volume on the amp than I had without it installed. 0 feed back!

                    I never thought I would be SO excited about a little round, black piece of rubber. This little gadget is perfect for my Taylor acoustic. No more feedback problems during live performances. It is so easy to put in when I need it, and removes just as easily when it's not in use so I can use my humidifier. The ease of putting it in, and taking it out is incredible. Perfect fit! My acoustic still sounds great with it in without an amp. I love it, and the band noticed how much better my guitar blends and cuts through with their rocking sound; now I can crank it and rock on!
