Rig S7320 w/emg 707's straight to bugera 333xl

Amazingly awesome sounds till i get the volume to over half... then i get super bad feed back even if my strings are muted ..... it will stop if i get about 15 feet away from the amp but any closer and it is horrible.
suggestions ?

Well, it's a 100 watt amp, closer to the amp than 15 feet it will feedback like hell, it's normal, you could try a noise gate, or just roll your volume knob down.

Edit: Yeah, don't face the amp, that causes a fair amount of feedback even muting your guitar strings.

I find not facing the amp helps, sit to the side or with your back to it. Also invest in a noise gate..?

Try using less gain? If there is a problem, it's probably a microphonic preamp tube. My Windsor had one when I bought it. It would actually feedback even when there wasn't anything plugged into the input jack.

this only does it with the guitars volume over half .... also the gain is only on 4... and i am not facing the amp :P

There could be some faulty connections with the wires on the pickups maybe?

No idea tbh then.

I think something is vibrating in sympathy, that is the only reason it would stop if i get far away correct?

Dude...its a 100W amp...and the volume is over half....it's a high powered tube amplifier. If it stops when you are 15 feet away....and you are on stage...then it shouldn't be a problem. If you are playing this in a room, and you are playing at that volume..... :wave: to your hearing.
I've bought, sold, and traded more gear than I care to admit.
