I have a peavey xxx 112. and a ibanez sz520 with stock pickups.

Now im getting quite bad feed back when i practise. and iv a gig coming up soon and i dont want there to be feedback while playing. its not like hum or hiss feedback. but like when im not playing a sharp kinda loud noise.

I know turning down my settings will get rid of it, but id rather not do that.
Would a Boss NS-2 get rid of it?
Or is it a pickup problem?
Any advice will be apreciated.
i believe its hissing, and yeah, a boss NS-2 would get rid of that.

There are other decent noise gates around, do a search around GG&A section
