ok so i have a flextone 2 (im sure u know its solid state) that runs at 60 watts of power pushing through a single speaker....and my problem is is that i play in a lead band that does some pretty large venues but the rhythm guitarist always seems to out volume me because i cant really crank my amp that loud without feedback issues....and i have already tried to deal with the feeback...ive checked my cables thats not it...its not my guitar because the pickups arent that hot and they are wax potted....and i just dont know what to do because i cant ask the other guitarist to turn it down because then they will be over powered by the drums and bass....and a new amp is out of the question.......and ive heard that noise gates are also good for canceling feedback but i have one built into my amp (which is always on) and i still have problems.....is there anything else i can do?

sorry about the long post

i would suggest that you place your amp in front of you, that way you dont get feed back.

or

just have your amp mic'd at the larger venues.

Agreed. There's no point in doing anything if she looks like shit.

Yeah I'd say go with a noise gate, I have the Spider II and the noisegate is terrible.
The Set-Up

Gibson Les Paul/Fender MIA Deluxe Strat --> MXR Super comp --> Boss DD-3 --> Dunlop Crybaby --> Need an amp, wanna sell me one?
#6
is the feedback very high pitched? and what room are you playing in? because i had the same problem while playing in my basement with cement walls, which are very reflective and often result in loud amp feedback.
#7
the feedback isnt really high pitched and im playing at a rented band practice space.....
