:mad:

so start playing with a band recently and its the 1st time ive had to crank the volume on my gear but i keep getting feedback when i crank it right up! if i lower the volume i cant hear my guitar over the band so what do i do!?!?

i was running a les paul > Pod XTL > mixing desk > PA and was standing right beside the mixer and PA but keepin pickups pointing away but still no good!

any ideas???

Are you in a small room? Try opening into a bigger room. You could also try standing farther away but that sort of goes with a bigger room.

yeah im in a small enough room but going into a bigger room isnt an option :(

i could stand further away from the speaker though if i put it over the other side of the room, would that work??

Try muting the strings when you arent playign them. Stupid advicde i know.

When life gives you feedback, write a song using feedback to make it badass, make money from it, get better equipment. I swear it works every time.

That...actually...would work!

You sure could try standing on the other side of the room. You have to get far enough from the amp that the air it's pushing (the sound) doesn't make your guitar string vibrate. As ShowNoFear said, you can mute the strings which would indeed prevent the strings from vibrating. Well, I think that's how feedback works anyway:o

lol, he quoted himself.

Anyways, get a noise reduction if it's that bad. I understand how it is, I had to when I bought my Mesa Boogie Mark IV, and it works great. I can control feedback and use it when i want or need it, but can cut it out with a push of a button.

I don't want to sound disrespectful and doubtful but I know I will....

Why does the treble cancel out feedback?

I'm assuming treble generally amplifies the frequencies at the top of the spectrum so turning it down turns the feedback down?

the more treble, the brighter the sound. if you notice, when using a wah wah pedal, it manipulates the tone. so when its all the way forward, you get a ton more treble, thus, making a way brighter sound...

cut back on the treble a bit, and you have a warmer, not as bright sound...

Do you use a lot of reverb/delay? If so, that may be the cause as well.
