Hey guys,
I'm getting a lot of feedback from my pedals especially when I on my distortion, delay and OD (for lead boost) all at once. The feedback starts when im not playing anything and when I'm muting the strings, there's some loud hum n hiss. I can't be rolling my vol knob to 0 all the time because of the way our songs are structured.

My questions are:
1) is the feedback caused by too many pedals and true bypass pedals in the rig?
2) Do I need to get a noise gate?

Anyway heres my rig:
Wayhuge aquapuss
EHX Small clone
MXR Phase 90
Dano Fish & Chips EQ
Digitech hardwire tube OD (For lead boost, Max vol, Zero gain)
MI Audio crunchbox
AMT japanese girl wah wah
Korg Pitchblack tuner

Les Paul guitar with humbuckers

everyone needs a noise gate On a sidenote, maybe it's because of the Hardwire, as much as I love Digitech pedals, they're prone to be a bit more noisy despite the true bypass
