well, i got a Boss NS-2 yesterday, hate it, now im wondering, would i be better off with a rack unit instead? i heard they dont alter your tone or cut off sustain, now i need something that will eliminate my feedback on a Peavey 6505+ head with EMG81/60 pickups. if you think a rack unit would be better which are some good ones? (cant be as much as an ISP pro rack)

It's not so much rack vs pedal. The difference is the brand

I am gonna suggest an ISP Decimator G-String. Run it in an X pattern (like you should have done with the Boss) and it should eliminate 90% of your hum and feedback.
I've bought, sold, and traded more gear than I care to admit.

Rack units are usually REALLY expensive. What don't you like about the Boss?

Also, I've heard good things about this pedal (from ISP no less):

i tried that pedal out yesterday too. A/B'ed it with the boss.. it cut off unwanted feedback, but i lost so much sustain

also, what i don't like about the boxx, is if i don't have the threshold ALL the way up, it still severly squeals at me and i have to have the attack really fast otherwise it lets loose in the feedback department
