I'm new here so I'm not 100% sure I'm posting this in the right area but here goes. Lately I've been having issues with really loud, high-pitched feedback when I'm playing my guitar. I'm playing a Schecter Ultra III into a boss ME-30 multi pedal (metal dist. setting w/ noise supress and EQ turned on), a boss NS-2 noise suppressor after the ME-30 and an orange crush CR60C 60W solid state amp, clean channel (channel volume at 2.5 live w/ master turned all the way up)

I've tried everything I can think of and whenever I'm playing, I get drowned out by feedback. Can anyone help?

Sounds like your using a lot of gain. Standing father away will help, especially if you normally play right in front of your amp. If your standing down the hall and your getting feedback, it's just too much gain.

Yes you're using too much gain and too much distortion, turn down something.
Or face the other direction, but I'd rather turn down stuff if I was you.

Clue: amplifiers amplify so don't turn it on if you need quiet.

I've tried moving farther away, but normally I'm in an enclosed space. I've tried turning the treble's down on my pedal and the amp but I'll try turning other things down. Thanks!

another thing is ive turned the volume and drive on my distortion down, but when i turn the amp up to match the other guitar player it usually comes back

^ no way around that if you don't wanna turn down the gain too much.

You either need to turn the gain down enough or the master volume down enough.
And disengage any compression you might be having around 'cause of the mfx processor.

Yeah, I think the issue is the drive on my actual distortion setting (my clean channel doesnt have a gain or drive option). Been playing over 4 years, still clueless to the technology aspect of it all -__- though I do know the metal setting on the ME-30 is a lot more gain-y than the other settings, and i have the drive set to 100. So you guys are probably right

Yeah usually having the gain set to 100 on anything is a surefire way to produce a ton of feedback at volume.

I just never thought about it because i do that with my other settings (i switch between metal and fuzz) and it's the only one that feeds back.

Try other drives, I think there was a Rat and Guvnor Sim.

I don't think the issue here is the quality of the drive, at least at this point. It's just too much drive.

Is this feedback that is a constant squeal or does it go away when you mute the strings?

if i mute it well enough it goes away, it usually only squeals while i'm playing or if i leave the strings open

Different distortion - different reaction to the signal as it is a completely different internal gain structure. I do agree that he is probably running it hot, but it seems to be borderline so a minor tweak might fix it. I was simply suggesting some of the ones that I know sound good on this modeler.

I didn't realize you had an external noise gate, maybe try that in front of the ME and see if you can clamp up more of it.

It's working correctly then.
