My band and I are performing our first show on the weekend and I was wondering if there are any ways to reduce feedback from my amp. I have a Line 6 75W Spider III amp and whenever I turn it up past half volume I get large amounts of feedback while trying to sustain a note. Any suggestions?

you fail so hard.

Any tube amp will do the same thing.

Fact of life.

Noise supressor is my best suggestion.

I never once said it was....i don't know how you got that out of what I posted. At all.

All I was saying is that any amp will do that, SS or tube, not just because its a spider 3.

FFS.

I have a Spider III 75W and I have gigged with it before at full volume. I don't get crazy amounts of feedback at all if I'm using my Strat. It has some active EMG SV's though, which might be helping keep feedback down. If I use my SG (with stock pickups), i get feedback like crazy, so it might be your pickups.

I'd suggest trying some active pickups and seeing if that helps your problem.

(I'm not sure if its just my pickups, or if all active pickups do this)

The way your post was laid out seemed like you were implying that the Spider III is a tube amp. Just a misunderstanding

No it really didn't. You misunderstood.

It made perfect sense to me and you looked like the idiot when you posted that its not tube.

EDIT: There are tube Spider III's btw.

So many replies and yet no one has asked:

What kind of feedback?

Is it a sudden, harsh squealing noise or does it fade in, almost like a sustained note?

If it comes in suddenly past a certain volume, regardless of where you're standing, it's probably 'microphonic feedback' and I'll guarantee the problem lies with your pickups.
