My Gear:

Epiphone Explorer (stock covered pickups)
Peavey 6505+ Head
Marshall 1960 Vintage Cab
Sonic Stomp
boss NS-2 (suppose to get rid of feed back)

The boss NS-2 helps a LITTLE... But if I turn the 6505+ past 2 I get HORRIBLE feedback when i try and palm mute it and stop the sound (common for metal) And the NS-2 doesn't start to mute till for a good second after i play...

What gear do metal head guitarists here use, so we can turn the amp up and not have to stand a frickin' mile away to play w/o feedback..

thats not feedback what u are mentioning, that is a problem with ur guitars pickups


its a whistle sound now isnt it and its really HIGH pitched

as soon as u play a note the whistle goes away but once u stopped it returns am i correct?

is the NS-2 in the loop or in front of the amp. If its in front, all you are doing is quiting down incoming noise, but still living with preamp noise. Run it in your loop. It makes a world of difference.

That is something I have yet to educate myself on.. This is how I plug in.

My 6505+ doesn't have a LOOP on the back, it has EFFECTS with a send and return jack. Same thing?

Yes, it's the same thing.
The two threads you made, are also the same thing.
You do not, need two.

If its not the loop pedal i am sure that ur Humbucker is featuring a problem, and needs to be re-wax potted which will cost the same amount roughly to just getting A NEW humbucker which is the way to go

What wax potting does is re insulates the pick up,

just picture a house in winter when they are insulated they are warm but if there isnt no insulation its cold

well in this case when there is no insulation the magnets are rebounding off each other causes a really disturbing whistle that wont go away unless fixed

Or just move further from your amp, use less gain, or get something better than the NS-2, like an ISP Decimator.

That's rediculous. You could do it yourself for like $5.

then do it, it cost heaps in my town cause there is opnly 1 person who does it, i wouldnt no how to do it

If I remember correctly, there's a step-by-step guide in the gear customizing forum...


I really don't think it's your pickups though. If it's a fairly new guitar, this shouldn't have happened, pickups last a long time. It's just your settings on your pedal and where you're placing it imo.

Turn the pre gain down back, up and put the noise gate in the loop.

Stop going on about bloody noise gates!

This is clearly to do with pickup microphonics, for which a nOise reduction pedal is next to useless. Epiphones are especially bad for microphonics, the best option is to get new pickups. You can also wax-pot pickups yourself quite easily. If you're interested, the effect is usually caused by tiny bits of metal inside the pickup vibrating against each other, which is then picked up and amplified causing nasty, screechy feedback.

I usually fill an old tin can with candle wax (and a little beeswax when available), place it in a pan of boiling water and (once the wax has melted) dip the pickup in the wax and leave it there for about 15 minutes, or until there are no more bubbles visible. Most people tell you to use a meat thermometer to avoid damaging the pickup, but I just use a little common sense( ie set the heat to just keep the Water simmering).

Then remove your pickup, leave it to cool for a bit, wire it back into your guitar and you're done. Easy peasy.
