(from artist's site) - Jerry Topinka began playing guitar in May of 1954, quickly displaying a passion for the instrument. Jerry studied with two of the top guitarists of the time â€“ Al Caiola and Joe Cinderella. At the age of 16, Jerry began playing professionally and in 1964 was a featured jazz guitarist in a Bergen County nightclub. Les Paul stopped by many Saturday nights to hear Jerry play. Today, Jerryâ€™s venues range from intimate jazz clubs to major corporate fund-raising events, plus special guest appearances with his long-time friend, Les Paul, at the Iridium in NYC.
Maker of Doug's Plugs - feedback control f-hole plugs
(from artist's site) - The cause of the feedback is from high SPL (Sound Pressure Level) entering the guitar body. The sound vibration not only causes the top to vibrate WITH the surrounding air, but the SPL also enters the guitar body and bounces around inside, causing more vibration to the top (i.e. the guitar bridge and ultimately the strings). This causes the string or strings to vibrate more, causing more sound out the amp. My Doug’s Plugs seal up the f-hole and stops the SPL from affecting the air inside the instrument. In effect, the SPL bounces off the top the same as a solid body. Since the top is free floating, however, some feedback is still possible but the overall reduction is dramatic. If you want to try an experiment, get some masking tape (either the tan stuff or the blue - the blue has less adhesive). Tape up both of the f-holes so they are sealed up. Use two or three layers of tape to thicken it up so they are more like my plugs. Then play your guitar like you would during rehearsal or a gig. If you notice a decrease in feedback, then my plugs will work for you and actually work better. (Some people still use clear packing tape to cover the holes but this gums up the finish, and to me looks very unprofessional.)
