    My wife and I run our Martin and Taylor guitars and our Rode mics through our Yamaha PA into Bag End speakers. The Rodes are very hot mics and require careful EQ'ing to eliminate feedback, leaving us little flexibility for further EQ'ing to control the guitars. The Luteholes looked like an elegant solution. Not so. Without the Lutehole inserted, we experienced low feedback problems on open E and A strings and on a fretted low G. With the Lutehole, we experienced -- surprise! -- low feedback problems on open E and A strings and on a fretted low G. There really was little difference in sound or control (and this was using the moderate-coltrol Lutehole model). In addition, because the LuteHole surface sits slightly higher than the guitar top, it occasionally interfered with my fingerstyle picking. And finally, because I'd ordered the maple Lutehole to match my sitka spruce top as closely as possible, the strings over the Lutehole were more difficult to see.
    Looks great. Does nothing.
    Very ornate carving. Very ineffective feedback control.
    A grossly overpriced windowscreen.

        I purchased the maple version, and it broke during installation. The rubber soundhole covers are much easier to install and are unbreakable (and cheaper!).

          Color of the walnut version turned out WAY lighter than the picture just be weary. You can get different woods at the lute hole website. I'm gonna probably get an ebony one instead.

          • Improve Appearance
          • Live gigs
          • Reduce Feedback

          Comments about The Lute Hole Company 4" Soundhole Covers for Feedback Control in Maple or Walnut:

          I purchased the Lute Hole "heavy" soundhole cover for my Lag dreadnought acoustic guitar, which I use for live gigs three to four times a month. The cover is absolutely beautiful and enhances the beauty of the guitar exponentially. It reduces feedback without unduly restricting the acoustic sound of the guitar, as a rubber cover would. Overall, this is a good item that does what it claims, and it looks great doing it!

          All that said, the cover was difficult to install in my guitar. I had to use a wooden stick to compress the foam to make it fit in the soundhole. It took about twenty minutes of using the stick and rocking the cover back and forth before it sat properly in the guitar. And, in the process, it chipped the finish on the guitar's neck, where the neck meets the soundhole.

          It is important to note the final sentence of the previous paragraph: It chipped the finish on the neck where it meets the soundhole. The neck on this guitar does not protrude into the soundhole; it merely ends flush with the hole. The description of the Lute Hole cover makes it seem like this should not present an issue. But, it does, and it makes it difficult to install the cover and (not) potentially (in my case) places the guitar's finish in danger.

          Overall, I would strongly recommend this product. But, if it had damaged a more expensive guitar than my Lag, I would have been very, very upset. So, this is just something to keep in mind before buying.

          This little device will cure feedback problems on acoustic-electric instruments while affering a touch of class to the appearance. You may have to do a liitle sanding to get it to fit.

            I have two other types of rubber sound hole covers. They both seems to take away the natural sound of my Martin Performing Artist GPCPA4R. When run through the PA, actually the electronics seems to be improved greatly as compared to using the rubber sound hole covers. Fits the Martin perfectly.

                Comments about The Lute Hole Company 4" Soundhole Covers for Feedback Control in Maple or Walnut:

                Yes these are pricey but it definately does reduce feedback and the looks it adds to your guitar is unsurpassed by anything out there. I tried the rubber plug and none of them fit a Seagull Entourage with a 3 7/8" soundhole. Besides why put an ugly black rubber plug in your guitar that muffles the natural sound of a beautiful guitar when one of these are available that can truly enhance the sound and beauty of a truly fine instrument. Enough said, spend the money it's more than worth it.
