Hey guys (Sorry if this is in the wrong place). I recently got a Boss CS-3 Compression Sustainer so that my rig could have some compression and most of all a nice sustain boost. I had previously heard that you get a lot of nasty feedback with it but I wasn't worried since I own an ISP Decimator. Well even with the Decimator I'm getting feedback straight from the pits of hell. I run an Ibanez RGA121 w EMG's to the CS3 to an Ibanez TS9 to an ISP Decimator straight to my Peavey 6505+ Half Stack. If any of you have good settings for the CS-3 that don't cut out lows too much and don't cause the worst feedback I have ever experienced, I would sincerely appreciate it. Thanks so much.

have you tried the pedal after your overdrive?


I have not! I played around with it for about 30 minutes and figured I can probably figure it out quicker if I have some help from people with more experience on the matter :P I'm assuming putting it after the OD might be a good idea?

You're running MORE gain into an amp with that much gain, with compression on top of it and you're surprised that you're getting feedback? and I keep the sustain/attack at 1 o' clock, tone just under 12, like 11. Level depends on how loud I'm going.

Well I figured I'd get MORE feedback but I didn't expect quite this much lol. I'll try out your settings

good point on running that much gain into a high gain amp. perhaps if we had a better idea of what you are trying to achieve sound wise that would help. there might be a better approach than what you are doing.

Why are people with a 6505/5150, etc always wanting to add more gain?
Isn't the 6505 etc an amp that has more gain than z zebra has stripes?

This isn't aimed specifically at TS, its just that there are A LOT of threads asking this sort of thing.
