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:

      I normally play acoustic guitar in a small group setting that does not require amplification, however recently I have started playing larger settings that require an amp. I found a very annoying humm coming from my guitar. Invested in this very inexpensive yet "priceless" tool. I am now able to play in the sanctuary at church without any annoying feedback. It can be inserted and removed while the strings are on the instrument but its probably much easier to do with them off. I manage with a little patience, since I dont always need it. The material is flexible so it can fit a variety of soundholes. If you are considering buying one, stop and just do it already. I leave mine in my case for any last minute needs. Would buy again

              Does the job. No more feedback playing my Fishman Infinity Matrix equipped Taylor 414ce through my Fishman Loudbox Performer at high gain/rock and roll style.
              Hurts the tone a bit, but there is always a tradeoff I guess. Might consider buying a similar product that has air vents. Otherwise I am happy.

                I fought feedback issues for years. This plug takes care of that in my Fishman equiped D-28 and ES equiped Taylor. Playing through hi output amplifiers is so much easier.

                It stays in place without being difficult to install or remove and you do not need to loosen the strings

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

                I bought this as I play/songwrite as a hobbyist at night, and my house is all hardwoods. I.e.sound travels. I have a six year old and a wife who both prefer things quiet at night. On the advice of a friend of mine who told me about this product (he's a professional musician) I figured I'd try it to see if it reduced volume.

                It works. The sound is definitely quieter, though I still can't strum with a ton of power, it does let me play slightly more aggressively and mutes the sound pretty well.

                I am using this in a Takamine GS-330S, and it fit perfectly. I also have a Seagull S12 12-string. Slightly more difficult to slide this under the strings of the 12-string at standard tuning, so better to loosen the strings before applying.

                Only downside (which doesn't bother me at all) is that it may take away from the looks of your guitar while installed. I mean, it's a big piece of black rubber right in the soundhole. That's not a euphemism...

                It's an inexpensive way to reduce volume a bit. I have not tried it yet for its intended purpose of being used while the guitar is amplified.

                Overall, very satisfied with this product.

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

                  This great item actually serves two functions for me. The first is helping to reduce feedback when performing live. The other is keeping the volume of my large guitar down when practicing, or when I have those moments of inspiration late at night.

                      It didn't fit my ooo Martin or my Seagull without sanding down the outside diameter.It measures over 4 inches,and the sound holes in the guitars are 3 7/8.
