A buddy of mine is having a hard time with feedback. He's had his input replaced recently and ever since then it's been giving a massive amount of "SSSSSSSKKKKKEEEEEEEE" Feedback. lol I dunno if it's his ground or some other variable. I guess my question is....

How can he prevent feedback??

Any cheap, quick fix?

The cheapest fix is to shield, get new cables, check out wiring, etc. The other cheaper option is to get a noise suppressor.

I had the same problem. It's probably your wiring. They're probably not getting a good connection to the prongs on the output jack.

How can a noise suppressor be cheaper than the cheapest?

so i tried to set my strings on fire by putting a lighter on the high e string n it cut it so wtf??!!? i passed the lighter rrly slowly by it for less then a sec n then it snapped...

If theyre passives, check the ground to the bridge, if theyre actives, check the ground to the pickup switch and to the output jack

A noise gate helps stops the hum, it wont really stop feedback from bad wiring.

I meant it's a cheaper option than some others out there. I mean, an NS-2 is like $45 used. It's a quick, permanent, cheap fix.

When is he getting the feedback? Could be a case of bad wiring, or just way to much gain and high end.

they may have swapped the wires when fixing the jack.

remove the plate, and make sure the ground wire is soldered to the innermost lug.

What a stupid, stupid suggestion!


Have a look at the solder joints around the jack, and also the wires leading to the jack (they can sometimes be pulled a bit loose when removing the jack itself). Check all the wires are making good contact, and that there's no vibration or movement around the pickups/bridge (if it's a very loud, harsh squeal it's more likely to be microphonics than a wiring issue).

They're passive so I figured it'd be his ground. Re-solder??

That's what I figured, I just wanted to make sure to prevent any extra work or even more damage.

it's a good bet. so if you know that the ground is black for example, the you'll be able to see right off if it's soldered to the correct lug. just by looking at it.
