Well, as the title states, my amp is giving an awful lot of feedback in Overdrive that is starting to annoy the hell out of me,


How do I put it to a stop?

If it helps, my current amp seetting is

EQ
Trebble: 7
Middle: 1
Bass:8

Overdrive
Volume: 2
Gain: 8


I've tried lowering the gain and tightening the heads on my cable.

Any suggestions?

Try changing your EQ to a flat setting and see what that does.

The resonant frequency of the clitoris is too low for the guitar players to take care of.

you dont need treble so high.. turn that down

i'd rather say that he needs to stop scooping his mids, that's just ridiculous... I wouldn't be surprised that if you put the mids up to 5-6 it'd be a lot better...

Try learning how to mute your strings.

I tried it out in store.

Great neck, nice n light, good tuning stability. Overall a good guitar. I didn't but it cause I generally only buy guitars over a grand now.

You EQ horribly.

Mids up, bass back a little, treble back 1.

It's not a horrible EQ (bar the midscoop of death -.-), his bass and treble would be pretty tight.

If you're looking for a tight sound, you should always keep bass and treble no more than 1 apart. Mids really are optional, but 1) a mid scoop makes your tone sound hollow, And 2) A guitar is "focused" around the middle frequencies, if you remove them, in a band situation, you'll never be heard. They let you "Cut through the mix" so to say.

A noise gate will fix your problem right up

Probably your best bet... A lot of people don't dig the Boss NS-2... but I'm not really into noise gates. MXR also do a thing called the Smart Gate that not a lot of people mention, might be worth a look.

And please, for the love of god... if you ever get into a band, don't keep the midscoop you'll never cut through the mix.
