Hey i recently bought a Peavey 6505 112 Combo, i been playing it a bit just in my house with an ESP LTD MH-401.
I got like a few questions..
should i be getting a crap load of feedback on like 6 pre and 2 post? or is there something i gotta do to stop this? Because anything over 5 Pre usually gives me some badass feedback
For playing Metal what settings do you guys use? (or suggest?)
and how far back will i need to be? coz atm its pretty dam bad with the feedback about 5 metres back..
or is it the guitar?
The amp was delivered to my house.. so could that have caused any damage?

Please remember i don't know much about amps... soo any help is really appreciated. Just point me back in the right direction please

Might be bad grounding in the guitar or amp. My 6505+ head doesn't give me much feedback, unless you were to dime it. It could just be that you don't mute your guitar properly, though.

High gain amps are usually pretty noisy...and most people will invest in a noise suppressor/gate to help out with this. However, this seems strange. When I played the 6505 combo in store with my RG...I dimed the gain and had the post higher than that without that much feedback or noise. Are you standing too close and/or facing the amp while you're playing? If you're super close to the amp it will just make feedback worse.

I'll be testing it more tomoro to double check... i understand that with a high gain amp its gunna be noisy but its like ear piercingly loud feedback xD...

I get insane feedback with my 5150 past 6 on pre gain and past 2-3 on post. It's naturally a noisy amp and definitely requires a noise suppressor.

NS-2 or Decimator are very well known and well liked (by most). I personally will be grabbing up an NS-2 as soon as I see one on my local Kijiji.

I've had both the NS-2 and Decimator...they're both great. The Decimator went out on me after a year or so...bought the NS-2 to replace it. Paid $45 for it and it works great. Plus, the NS-2, you can run in the X-pattern to suppress noise in your effects loop (amp noise)...and your signal path (guitar, cable, pedal noise). You will have to buy the g-string version of the Decimator.

I just bought a 6505+ combo too, and I definatly need a noise suppressor. I'll look into the NS-2.

I just bought a ESP Horizon, there was way too much feedback through my 6505+. Turns out when I was palm muting the strings were actually touching the pickups. Might want to check this and move the pickups away from the strings a bit.
