This is probably a pretty stupid question, but here goes.

Is feedback the obnoxious noise when you turn your amp up really high, and it starts screaming and making really annoying noises.

Don't know if this helps, but i have a Spider 3: 30Watt, and everytime i turn it all the way up, it starts screaming, even in the song, i can hear a faint scream, just loud enought to seriously get on my nerves.

Any comments help, accept negative ones, they're ususally not too helpful.

Make a thread for both questions next time, making 2 threads is pointless and pushes other threads further down. Also, please dont add \_/\_/ to your thread titles please. Its not needed.

Yes thats feedback. It happens when the soundwaves from the amp are loud enough to vibrate the strings on their own. It helps if you stand behind the amp or face your back towards it. Also, dont crank it. Solid states sound nasty when cranked and the volume is harmfull to your ears.

I don't think they vibrate the strings, they just are picked up by the pickups over and over. On point, don't crank a modelling amp for feedback.

just in case it wasn't actually feedback (it prolly was) but it MIGGHHTTT be just the humming from ur amp because it means that it is pushing really hard and ur output is too big for the amp to handle (AKA, if u FULLLLLLYYY crank it, it will blow).
