Ok, I have a peavey VK, and I use a Boss OS-2. There is alot of feedback and noise when i have the pedal engaged and the strings not muted. I can even sometimes hear radio signals when my pedal is engaged.

I have a les paul with a gibson dirty fingers humbucker.

Could this feedback (and background noise) be a bad pedal. Come from playing in a smaller room, or could it be my pickup ?

What do you guys think.

would running the pedal with a 9 volt make a difference ?
