I have acoustic guitars and want to make them quieter so far I have a feedback buster which I put into the sound hole and it fits my squier nicely. Yet my squier is very loud to me...that acoustic can really throw sound out when I use the plectrum.
The issue being I really want to practice with the plectrum as, I feel it's important. I tend to only finger strum as, it's quieter but, it defeats the purpose.
I am using light guage strings bronze alice on it. Yet I find when I walk away and re tune with electric tuner seiko one the tuning can wander. I don't find alice keeps the tuning well. just my opinion. I cna come back later check the tuning next day and it will have fallen out of tune.
or maybe it's my tuner not so good. yet it does tune up fine when I check on 12th fret it's same as open strings.
but, it's very loud when I use a plectrum. I am trying not to be too loud for my neighbours as I live in a small block of apartments.
I have been weaving a piece of silk through near the saddle peg but it makes the strings ping and all chords sound completely dead.
I am unsure of other ways to quieten the acoustic. I have an electric but, no amp I am looking at buying a flanger/vox mini amp to plug into my guitar also.
hope you can help me I have a few more questions in mind as a beginner guitarist hope my questions won't be too many
