yea i have, it seems like it effects feedback, or maybe that is the echo you are talking about

If you're playing an acoustic through it then that could be your problem.
Reverb is avery subtle effect, sounds like the equivalent of playing in a large empty room.

Turn down the gain, stand further away from your amp, face away from your amp, change the EQ'ing....

or any combination of the above. And yes, if you aren't using an acoustic amp you'll be more prone to feedback anyway.

no its plugged into an electric. even with the guitar unplugged, all three controls of gain turned down it squeals earpiercingly if i turn it any more than half way up.

also under "gain" have have three knobs ( pre, sat, post) from screwing with it i found the pre seems to set the volume, sat - distortion, and post volume i guess. but what do they all mean?

Firstly, you shouldn't have the reverb too high unless you want it to sound like it's the 80's again.

Just a touch is enough on a clean setting.

Seriously, you shouldn't be getting feedback like that at practise volumes. Try turning the volume or the gain down.

I'm guessing you have some kind of peavey amp? I know basically they work off this generaly;
Pre-gain - Channel volume
Saturation - Distortion
Post-gain - Master volume

YEs! maybe its broken , or maybe its just a crap amp, b/c reverb really seems to have no effect on the sound except for untolerable feedback. thanx for the explanation of the gain knobs!
