I really hope you're not using it on your MG's overdrive channel... god, I hope so.

Otherwise, it's probably the combination of your Strat's crappy single- coils that are the culprit.

turning your guitars volume to 10 leaves massive room for feedback on its own. adding a pedal and turning its volume to 10 adds more room. Gain at 10 does the same thing

EDIT: god forbid going to 11

But it's a whole 1 louder!

But yeah, I am pretty certain TS is using it on the MG's OD channel. So switch it to clean, please

Hahahaha, I guarantee that's what he did. Those DS-1's are wimpy so I don't see how the hell it could feedback.
