Sound hole cover?

Sometimes when I see peple play live I see a round black thingy covering the sound hole. (of an A/E, duh) I was just wondering: What does that do? Does it reduce feedback? And just out of curiostity (spelling), where can I get one?

Yes, they reduce feedback, and are very effective. Any music store should have them, there are a couple varieties. I think the most popular one is made out of rubber so it can be put in and removed easily.

ditto on the lutehole!
prevents feedback and also protects the wood around my soundhole (I have a natural finish on top of very soft wood).

You could save $10 and just make sure your sound board and gain is set correctly. I've never played live where things are mixed right and I have a feedback issue. Usually, either your guitar volume is set too high, your gain at the board is too high, you're standing in front of your amp/speakers, or there's another problem going on.

But these are really only effective when you are using an AE with a condensor type pickup rather than a piezo AFAIK

My Seagull is very boomy when using foldback - it only has Piezo. The rubber Feedback Buster works very well indeed at reducing this boominess - it's like a low mid frequency feedback.

If by condenser, you mean a condenser mic, then I think the Feedback Buster might be an innappropriate solution.

Regards
John

Does the seagull not have preamp controls on it?

That's an interesting problem, and if the FB works well for you, then great. Sounds like some resident frequency issues within the guitar when it's plugged in, so any solution that works is a good deal, I suppose.
