Default Soundhole Supressor

Does anybody have any suggestions for a company that makes a soundhole supressor/ feedback buster for a nonstandard 4 soundhole for an acoustic guitar?

The standard 4 Planet Waves/Dadarrio is too large to fit the into the 3 7/8 soundhole of a Collings OM2H. Trust me, I tried.

Thanks in advance.

The soundhole in my Martin CEO7 is small. So I used a rubber suppressor and cut a pie-shaped wedge out of it using an X-Acto knife. Still works fine.

The cut removes about 1 inch of the outside edge and the pie slice goes almost all the way across but stops about 1 inch from the opposite edge.

Lute Hole makes very pretty, and expensive, soundhole covers of different sizes. They can certainly accommodate yours. Well worth checking out.http://lutehole.com

Just measured my two...

The old one for my Tak, measures 100mm / 4" across the inside plug.

The new one for my Maton 808 is 950mm / 3 3/4".

Might work for you.

Kris

They can/will. Look under "Customize" where they say: "We make just about ANY size or shape soundhole cover".
