I've got a simple setup: guitar - distortio pedal - amp. But no matter what I do I am getting way too much feedback and not enough volume. I keep my guitar at about 8, my pedal there is level, 4 band eq, and gain, and I leave all of those at about 12 o' clock. My amp only has one channel so I don't use the distortion on it. It also has no volume, only pre and post gain. I have the pre gain at like 1.5-2 and the post gain at about 5. It's not even close to earsplitting, it can barely compete with the drums, but for some reason I am getting a ridiculous amount of feedback. If anyone out there could lend me some knowledge that would be great. Thanks.

i used to get a lot of feedback, then i turned my tone knob down and i didn't get any more

get a noise gate, they tend to cut feedback

maybe u got a cheap guitar or amp.. used to happen to me to then i got a guitar with some EMG's and a nice amp,volume all the way up and no feedback...

It also dosnt happen with my friends S.Duncan guitar so its not the EMG's that kill the feedback but im sure they help..

Turn the gain down, volume up, and stand further away from the amp.

Stand further away from the amp, don't face the amp with your guitar (you should be between your guitar and the amp), and try taking the back plate off of your guitar to make sure it is properly shielded.

noise supressor is 1 idea, put ur gain down on ur pedal, cause when u play on high volum, the amp create his own dist.. i promese u, ur distortion wont be missed, just get volum up with some dist and dist down a bit, cause if u have hight volum + much gain on ur dist... u will get noise and feedback as u already know
u might say u play with ur fingers, but no, everything comes from ur heart ,your feeling, and the blood whos pumping in ur fingers when u shredd<3 !!! :

Being guitarist is not easy, but when u have done ur homework its heaven!!!!
