When putting the amp to the same level as the drums (not incredibly loud, usually not over 1/2 way on the volume) we are getting terrible buzzing and feedback. My guitar is a schecter hellraiser if that helps. Any tips for eliminating this?

Turn the gain down, bro. The insane channel is NOT your friend.

you should start by checking to see if your amp says line 6 on the front. if so..proceed to turn it off. that should eliminate the buzz. if it wont turn off..which ive heard they sometimes do. turn off the insane chanel.

there should be a built in noise gate? If not maybe buy a noise gate?
I no the line 6 spider III has a noise gate. Not sure which line 6 you have.

To enable noise gate if you have it press and hold the tap delay button then turn the echo/reverb knob past 6 o' clock. If not turn gain down

When you're playing with a lot of gain; it's almost a given that you will have issues with hum and feedback. That why many metal players have a noise suppressor or gate in their rig to stop said issues.

The problem is that a noise suppressor is like a third of the price you paid for your amp. Your amp isn't all that great so I would just save the money you'd be using on a suppressor and save for a new amp. But hey; it's your money.

Lmao. Well I'm the drummer. I just had to ask for my guitarist. Yeah I think he usually uses insane. That would probably be the problem. I'll report back tomorrow if I can't fix it.

Hmmm. In the OP, you were using first-person pronouns, and you've been a member for a while on a guitar-orientated website for a while. Something tells me you might be a little of your amp now.

That's ok, it's a common side-effect of Spider amplifiers. By talking with your doctor, you can eventually remove it from your life. If you have a history of being stubborn, getting a new amp might not be right for you. If you show signs of bad guitar playing, no gigs, and refusal to listen to advice, it is advised that you not get a new amplifier and retreat into solitude. If you can not afford a new amplifier, taking out a loan might help.

Get a new amp, before it's to late.

This is a sign of stubbornness. There is no use trying to reason with a stubborn consumer because he will not listen to reason and peer-experience.

All jokes aside though.

You need a new amp. Some SS are alright, but the Spider III is downright sh*t. Sorry to burst your bubble, but they're great for practicing, but when you try to do anything with them, it comes out dull, thin, lifeless, and every single model seems to have some type of problem.

I agree with WD7.
But: There are some great SS amps. The Line 6 Vetta II for example. AWESOME amp, and it's Solid state through and through.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

A time might come when you outgrow it. Good luck either way, and try the noisegate.
