I play my Ibanez ART300 through a Peavey 40 Watt XXX combo. I just got the guitar back from a set up so I'm playing it in tune for the first time, but when I get the level of gain I want from it, unless I'm muting the strings, there's a ridiculous amount of noise. I plug in my guitars without active pickups on the same settings and it sounds great. The noise doesn't stop when I play either, from even slightly touching the other strings. Tapping is out of the question. Any way I can remedy this?

Noise gate might be wise, but the actives will drive your amp more than the passives so you might wanna roll down the gain a bit.

'Practice amp' = amp you practice with? In my case, Peavey 6505+ and 4x12

get new pickups or get an ISP Noise Decimator (the greatest noise gate you can buy)

This, up the gain on your amp and roll down the volume on your guitar
