i have a behringer V-Tone GMX 212, which i like, but there a problem. I can have the master volume on 10, and the channel volume wont get past 4 or 5 without squealing. its the squealing that happens when a microphone is up too loud. Any ideas why? i can get it louder when using humbuckers without it squealing, but yeah, please help because i dont know what it doesnt like about going loud, youd think that if its meant to go that loud, it'd be able to go that loud.

That would be feedback...youd need your guitar waaaay far away from your amp to tirn it up that loud...like in a stadium or something...

SO TURN DOWN THAT DEVIL MUSIC YOU CRAZY KIDS!!!!

Well it's a behringer solid state. If your shooting for volume get a better amp. Please get a tube amp.

Welcome to the world of High Gain, High Volume.

It takes fine tweaking of your EQ and gain levels in adition to standing much farther away from your amp.

You can also buy a noise gate to knock it out.

but its not the regular feedback, and i have an 18 foot cable and if its stretched out the whole way, it still happens. IT doesnt do it when the guitar is plugged in, so i dont think its the amp, but its really got me stumped. .Btw i have an ibanez noiseless cable if it might be the cable. and the only reason i had it so loud was because i played it at a party where my band played a gig, and me and the drummer just had an improv jam, so it needed to be damn loud.lol.but its pushing 60 watts through each speaker, so its still getting over the drums at that volume, but still, i want to really crank it.

EDIT: and to ubershall, how would chaning the EQ change the amount of squeal i get? and i repeat its not feeback.

It's microphonic feedback, which is basically caused by the amplification of tiny vibrations (usually inside a guitar pickup). A change of pickups will almost certainly cure the problem, or alternatively you can wax-pot your pickups to reduce microphonics.
Also make sure there's no loose hardware or anything on your guitar, that can make the problem worse.

On second thoughts yes, the main problem is that you have a Behringer V-Tone GMX 212.
Microphonic squealing is, if anything, an improvement....

Doubt it's the amp.
I get microphonic feedback (which is NOT pretty) using my Peavey, whereas my bandmate gets it using his JCM900.
I have the stock Ibanez pickups but he has Tone Zone.

It's a damned pain...
