So I thought buying a new amp would eliminate the feedback issue with my pedal and it didnt. I have a VK, and when i have the pedal engaged, i have to have the strings muted or the noise is unbearable. Whats the deal? Is this normal ?

a new pedal would've been less expensive than a whole new amp. maybe you have the gain up to high and are standing to close to the amp. could be your pick ups.
