Control feedback without tone loss!
The Suppressor Acoustic Soundhole Cover by Dean Markley is designed to eliminate acoustic-electric guitar feedback in live amplification situations. Just slip The Suppressor under your strings and pop it into the soundhole of your guitar to make feedback disappear! The patented sound louvers allow air to flow to and from the inside of the guitar and lets the top vibrate naturally without dampening the tone and sustain characteristics. The aluminum tone ring in nonmagnetic so it does not interfere with magnetic pickups or the natural vibrations of the strings.

Quick and easy to install & remove
Soft rubber insert won't damage guitar
Helps stabilize tuning
Push your guitar harder live

This looks like a great product, but it sadly did not fit my guitar. The neck of my guitar (Takamine) extends a quarter-inch past the sound hole. I figured that it would still fit because of the notch they cut out for the neck. However, because the central disc is metal, the cover wasn't flexible enough to fit in the soundhole without damaging my guitar.Bottom line: If you have a neck that extends even a tiny bit into the soundhole do not buy this product. Look for a soundhole cover that is made entirely of a soft, flexible material (like rubber, etc.).The covers quality was great, but I cannot comment on its performance.
I gave it the low scores because it doesn't fit my Taylor 810 soundhole. I think the suppressor is also too thick and rigid to comfortably slide into the soundhole under the strings.
Dean Markley The Suppressor Acoustic Soundhole Cover is a creative and affective invention. I've owned the chrome one for about half a year now and it works great. I have a mohagony Washburn guitar that was too mellow for me and bright strings were not enough. The Suppressor gives it a brighter sound -some what like a resonator guitar- and looks great. The only thing to be aware of (if you strum as fast and hard as I do: aggressively) the rubber part tends to slowly wear away around the edge of the soundhole. Other than that it works great.
I constantly switch back and forth between an Ovation electric acoustic and a Strat through the same amp (Line 6)on stage. This totally eliminated the feedback I always had when trying to keep the same output level with the acoustic as from the Strat. Buying another for my 12-string.
