How do i get that cool feedback effect? I've seen videos where they let a note ring and face the pickups towards the amp to get feedback, but i've tried it to no avail. Does this trick only work on tube amps? If so, what could i do to get cool feedbacks?

Also, my guitar seems to be sustainly retarded, i cant even get a 5 second sustain on the higher frets. Are there any pedals that help you get good sustain? Thanks in advance.

Feedback isn't really related to tube amps, it's rather an effect of high gain and high volume levels. Crank your amp and you'll be certain to get feedback (sometimes when you don't even want to, WOHO!).

Whilst any amp will feedback with enough volume, solid state feedback tends to be a bit nasty - you only get proper ethereal howling with tube amps.

Darn. Any pedals that might help increase my sustain?

DS-1/tubescreamer/anything that could pump up gain, just one note though, by having more gain/distortion you'll create more noise, thus you need a noise gate/suppressor. Having a double locking trem wouldnt give you as much as a fixed bridge, plus ur guitar have the EdgeIII which doesnt have any brass plate/material, so dont expect too much from it.

I have a MT-2 dude, but it gets really noisy all the time. What's the best noise gate/compressor out there?

EDIT: For a reasonable price of course

There are tons of noise gates out there, go through reviews and use the search button.

Personally i prefer Boss NS-2

Does the noise gate increase sustain too? I tought about the Boss CS-3, but i heard it was quite noisy itself.

no they dont...

also, a certain percentage of sustain comes from ur technique, if you suck at vibrato or fretting properly, then dont get ur hopes up.

My technique is pretty good man. Would getting the Ns-2 AND the CS-3 help? Or would putting those two pedals together affect tone or something?

If you're getting the cs-3 then there's a high chance you dont need to get a noise gate. I highly recommend you try it out 1st and make sure you like the end-result of the tone.

It's all in the amp, you have a solid state amp so no nice feedback unfortunately - no pedal will change that.

Ok guys, thanks for all the help. I think i'll try out the CS-3 and see how it is. Cheers.

And TS, dont confuse feedback/sustain, they arent the same. Getting that CS-3 doesnt guarantee you a feedback from the cube. Upgrading the INF pickups on ur guitar would significantly increase your chance of having better sustain/tone i'd say.

EDIT: If you want a taste of the feedback, maximize your gain in the dirty (R-fier) channel, then step on the MT-2 while having maxed distortion. Pick a harmonic or just mute all strings accept 1.
