Screaching Halt is a guitar soundhole cover that's flexible for quick installation. A special tapered contour quickly creates a tight, custom fit without endless adjustments. The Planet Waves soundhole plug adapts rapidly to most acoustic guitars, allowing you to crank the volume without creating feedback.

The Screaching Halt cover works with most pickup systems without disrupting placement or performance. Screeching Halt is safe with most finishes and inlays.

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 puchased this upon request of my wife's band leads after a practice session full of feedback issues. The diameter is too big to fit her Martin OMC. 30 minutes of sanding on the drill press with a sanding wheel I got it to fit. Buyer beware.

                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
