Ok so I'm having some problems with feedback . I usually play with higher gain , since I'm a metal head , Machine Head , Children of Bodom , that stuff... I've got an ESP LTD KH 602 , a Marshall JVM 205 Fullstack , a nice little MXR Zakk Wylde OD , MXR Compressor and a lame Behringer ( yeah, I know ) noise reducer that takes out some of the hiss and such .
I mess around with the settings , but when on higher gain or higher output it starts to feedback , to scream ...
So , would buying a better noise reducer or noise gate fix this ? What could I do to not affect the tone and reduce the noise ?
( Not that good at this , so pardon me for my lack of knowledge )

Get some low noise preamp tubes, don't go nuts on the gain, and replace the behringer with an ISP decimator.

That'll do it

*edit*

Maybe one of the powertubes is microphonic. Is this a recent thing?

G-String is what I'd go with. gets rid of feedback, AND the hiss and hum of the guitar

lots of gain creats feedback and muddy tone. I always had my gain cranked for years and after I started paying attention to the gain, I use less and get a better, heavier, crisper sound, with hardly any feedback at all. And I don't even need a noise gate now.
