Overview

This Planet Waves O-Port is proven to enhance the sound of any acoustic guitar and kill feedback without the use of electronics. It's has been tested under the scrutiny of world-renowned acoustic engineers and sound producers to improve tonal quality. The result is a fuller, richer sound with noticeably increased sustain and harmonic range. The tonal enhancement provided by the Planet Waves O-Port is particularly pronounced when the acoustic guitar is plugged in and amplified, resulting in a much fuller sound, a stronger signal to the internal pickup, and significant feedback control. The Planet Waves O-Port fits in most acoustic guitars with a round soundhole, regardless of make or model.

The Planet Waves O-Port's material is custom blended for flexibility to prevent damage to your guitar finish and inlays. The O-Port suppresses feedback and gives your acoustic or acoustic-electric guitar a fuller sound with more volume, better clarity, and enhanced projection.

Just measure your acoustic guitar's soundhole and choose the Planet Waves O-Port that fits best.

Small: 3.375" - 3.5"
Large: 3.875" - 4"

  • Non-electrical acoustic sound enhancement guitar accessory

First off I was very skeptical. A piece of plastic to put in the soundhole of my Martin that will make it sound better? Yeah right! Well it did just that, more lows, more focused sound and no feedback through amplification. If you own an acoustic, buy one. Period.

OK,let's me tell you how this works. The o-port reduces or eliminates some vibrations at certain frequency. As the result, (1) the volume becomes smaller significantly; (2) the bass becomes less boomy; (3) the clarity of the sound might be enhanced because some onvertones are gone, but I can't tell; (4) you can play harder to produce louder sound because the sound now is more "clear".

Now you know, it doesn't make the sound louder. It just makes it possible to play louder sound without noisy overtones. If you read the manual or description of the product carefully, you'll find that they never say it for sure that the volume will be enhanced by the o-port.

I installed and removed it. The hard plastic o-port caused paint around the soundhole peeled off a little. If you install and remove many times, you'll eventually see the permanent damage to the paint of your guitar. The o-port is not made of soft rubber. It's made of hard plastic.

Think twice before you buy. You'll spend more on the return shipping.

      Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves O - Port:

      OK....I have had this on my steel string Cordoba Acero D11-CE for 6 months now and have definately notice better overall projection, louder bass, and more clarity.
      This guitar uses an integrated neck joint (spanish neck construction), and as such, tends to be very light and resonant. ........but lacks projection because the back and sides seem to resonate more, which cancels out frequencies instead of REFLECTING them from inside the back....and out through the sound hole.
      Upon putting fresh strings on yesterday, I thought I'd take the O Port out and try the guitar for awhile without it. I HATE IT. The projection, Clarity, and bass is gone.
      I'm putting the O Port back in PRONTO.
      Yep. This definately works in my instance!

            Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves O - Port:

            The O-port marketing and packaging boast of increased projection and tone. From owning one and using it in several different guitars and with trusted listeners sitting across the room, I've found that it does alter the projection and tone, but not to make a guitar sound fuller or louder. I found a sharp reduction in the "boxy" sound of every guitar, as well as a decrease in volume, less vibration from the top of the instrument, and loss of mid and high frequency. That being said, what I've described is essentially how a guitar like an Ovation differs from a normally constructed acoustic. The sound is much, much, much more scooped in the mids, and it sounds glassy and sterile. Go ahead and buy one if you wish you had cheap sounding Ovation.

            I can't help but wonder if the designers of the O-port keep one in their personal guitars. I don't imagine that being the case, at least not for long.

              Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves O - Port:

              I put this in a new Washburn EA40SCE to see if it would improve the acoustic sound of the instrument. This is not an expensive instrument and being a Thinline in addition to being made of maple I never really anticipated anything spectacular. This instrument wasn't designed to be a great acoustic instrument. It is a great amplified instrument. This insert did make acoustic sound seem more focused and the volume equalized across all the strings. It's not a huge difference, but the instrument seems of higher quality with this installed. For the price you really can't lose. I can not yet attest to its anti-feedback properties, but the Fishman electronics make this a moot point.

                Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves O - Port:

                I am a long time professional musician in the entertainment capital of the world. I recently bought a new Washburn EA400 slightly blemished at a bargain price to use for live concert and arena events. I have a top of the line Taylor I use for studio recording, but didn't want to utilize that for touring. I wasn't expecting much out of the Washburn since it is a smaller, thin line body, but with the Fishman electronics it sounded amazing after a professional setup. I purchased the O Port just to see if I could get a bit more sound and gain a little more headroom. I don't feel this added projection, but it does even out the sound across the fretboard and I feel I can play a little more aggressively without losing clarity. The tone actually seems slightly compressed which when playing acoustically is not a bad thing. My next tour begins in two weeks and I am looking forward to using this axe exclusively for acoustic work with the O Port installed. It's not an amazing improvement, but it is cool and added something I hadn't intended.

                Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves O - Port:

                Works great on guitars with low volume like mahogany. If you have a high quality spruce, cedar, or other high resonant tone wood that projects loudly, then it will actually subdue it. I tried it on 3 guitars- a Greg Bennett Samick mahogany, a Sky acoustic bass, and an Indiana S-Scout. Helped the Samick and Sky tremendously! These both had low acoustic volume. Also on the Sky bass, when it was amplified, it would feed back horribly- that problem is now nonexistent! So it does what it says. Now for the Indiana....it is the loudest acoustic guitar I've ever played and when I installed the O Port, it actually lowered the volume and the sound became muddy. So it all depends on the specific guitar- it helped the 2 that needed it.

                I ordered the O-Port for my "Mini Maton" guitar for improved amplification performance, and feed back control.It arrived promtly, and It fit well (with a minor cut for adjustment) the MATON guitar has a large block inside where neck mounts to body. The O-Port cut easily with scissors to custom fit inside and it slid right in and fit well. I instantly noticed improved tonal response in the mids and highs. It also improved projection and volume. It seems to work well in feedback supression.Remember to measure the sound hole O-Port comes in 2 sizes which will fit everything. Overall I am very pleased with the O-Port and Musicians Friend.

                Cheap thrill

                Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves O - Port:

                Does make a slight difference in the sound. I can't say what an audience or microphone would hear, but I could tell the sound was less cluttered. This made the bass stand out. Before installing cut a slot over your truss rod nut so you can get to it. After removing and replacing the O port 6 times it began to split up the side. I taped it over with duct tape but expect it would tear apart complete with more in and out of the sound hole.

                Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves O - Port:

                I play acoustic guitar in a Contemporary Christian band; I was having feedback issues with my monitor on low notes. I play an Ovation with a single cutaway; the O-Port doesn't fit well in that guitar (which may be the problem). I did not notice any change in the overall sound of the guitar and I am still getting feedback in all the usual places. Maybe it is the guitar or the poor fit with the cutaway. I am going to a sound hole cover now.
