i have a HiWatt MaxWatt G100 112R and love it the clean isn't inspiring but with a bit of chorus is lush and the two overdrive settings can cover anything i need from blues to metal but when i turn the master volume up i get horrid feedback that ruins the amp for me so i was thinking of getting a HiWatt Head but was wondering does anyone know if their heads have the same feedback/hissing problem?

Generally speaking, sounds like you need a noise gate, it helps keep the errant noise from your pups low, try cranking your amp with your guitar volume all the way down, if you have the same problem then... Well idk

Well it can help with pedals if you set it up that way, but it's meant to get rid of excess noise in general, for example, single coil pickups have thing called 60 cycle hum, which is due to a lot of physics i' d feather not get into, point is, unless designed to be himbucking, they're noisy as hell

But a noise gate cuts those sounds unless they get above certain volume going in, meaning, you no play, it no hum

HOWEVER

If your amp is giving you feedback even when your guitar volume is rolled down to off, you amps I faulty (if solid state) or needs new tubes
