does everyone need a noise gate?
why do they make amps that squeal and then we have to spend more money for a noise gate?

If you have a tube amp and have a ton of gain on it, and you are close to it, like in you room, the speakers will feedback.


If you were playing in a stadium, you wouldnt have nearly as much squeal

Not at all.

People use too much gain and/or noisy gear; and then try to remove something they could have prevented in the first place.

the only reason i use a noise gate is to eliminate that buzz that comes from the stage lights.
