Soundhole Covers

Question:
What is your feeling about using a soundhole cover to enhance the sound, do you know the reasons for such a device, and the ups and downs?

Answer:
A soundhole cover is designed to be used on an acoustic/electric guitar.  One with an on-board peizo pickup, internal mic, pre-amp, etc.
The soundhole cover is used to reduce or eliminate feedback.  The downside is your guitar won't sound as good acoustically anymore unless you remove it.  They are usually made of rubber and are a friction fit so they can be installed and removed easily.
