I'm looking for a pedal to help fix the volume and feed back problem on my amplifier. When I have the clean channel on everything sounds fine. When I switch to the distortion channel, it just gets extremely loud, and it gets bad feedback if I get to close. I have to turn the knobs up pretty high to get some nice crunch or anything. Is there a pedal that could fix this? A noise suppressor maybe? Btw I don't have any pedals hooked up to it, just have the channel selector that came with it. Its a Crate FXT120.

You answered your own question. Get a noise suppressor or noise gate is what some brands call it but that's what your looking for.

Just step back. Besides, the sound you hear when you >5 feet is not what the audience is going to hear.

That's what happens if you stand too close to your amp...stand further away.
Actually called Mark!

Yeah just stand away from the amp - or learn to use the feedback and turn it into a positive.

Well, generally electronic feedback like being too close is unusable. Controlled feedback, that increases your sustain is different.

One of the main problems is your amp. Because it is solid-state you have to turn it up so loud so the audience can hear you. I have a Crate and I like it just fine but I don't think I would gig it. If you are scooping mids stop it. Turn the mids up to at least 4 or more and bass up to at least 5 or 6, turn the treble down to about 4 or 5 and turn the volume and gain down. It will sound much better and feedback less. As others said stay away from the front. Amp settings make all the difference.
Does your guitar have single-coil pickups?
