I play an agile 7 string with EMG 707's out of a Peavey 6505 combo amp, progressive metal, djent, ambient, and melodic stuff. when I crank the gain I get feedback and picking noises that are unwanted. any suggestions for supressor/other kinds of pedals that would help get a more "clean" metal sound. Its gonna be a few years till i get the axe effects so a decent fix for now would be good, considering that i have gigs around 3 times a month.

Cheaper: Boss NS2
Better: ISP Decimator.

And for the picking noises, that can easily be helped by adjusting the treble. That may also help with any amp buzz or hiss.

I use this, but I've heard that the ISP Decimator is pretty much the go-to pedal if you have the money.

On a budget, the best you can do is a Boss NS-2.

If you have the cash, go for an ISP Decimator G String.

All other noise gates just aren't worth it, unless you have an amp that doesn't have an FX loop.

Isn't Djent based on that picking noise?


yea djent is partially based on the picking sound, and thats y I need something to supress the pick sound PART of the time (when im playing more melodic parts), and also why i dont just adjust my amp.
