hey all, I play in a metal band with a high gain tone. I have heard that using an eq pedal can help with or even eliminate feedback, but i don't know how i should go about doing it. can anyone help?


i have a MXR 10 band eq.

well a feedback eliminator is a just a notch filter that severely cuts a specific frequency. whichever frequency is feeding back, it detects the spike in it and cuts it. to use an eq pedal would be similar. you bump down the offending frequency on your pedal manually. the problem with that though, is that fixing your feedback problem effects your tone.

you could also roll the gain back and use the level to get a tighter tone?
