My gear:
6505+
Jackson RR1 w/blackouts
boss ns-2

I get insane amounts of feedback when I stop playing when the volume(post gain) is past 1. I know its not my pickups as they are brand new and were installed by a professional.. The ns-2 does a great job at eliminating hum and background noise, but does almost nothing for feedback. I guess my question is what can I do to help reduce feedback? New tubes? I have heard the ISP decimator is a good noise suppression pedal, but is it ideal for feedback? Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

It could be something interfering with your amp, my amp buzzes insanely when my downstairs computer is on, but it's totally silent when the computer is off.

Turning down the gain would work wonders.

Could be, but I have hooked my amp up in several different places in my house, including my garage where there is almost nothing electrical on.

I play heavy metal, so this is not an option haha. High gain is what I like, thats why I bought a 6505+.

Upgrade the valves anyway, stock ones are pretty poor. ISP Decimator would be a good choice to upgrade your ns2 to, or possibly the new g-string, but I havn't tried one of those yet.

Well you don't need the gain at ten to play metal. The thing just gets oversaturated past 6-7 and your palm mutes start sounding like mush anyways. Try backing off the gain and kicking a boost in front of it to tighten everything up.

That or throw the NS-2 in front of your amp as well as the loop.

Well I keep my gain at 8-8 1/2. What do you mean kicking a boost in from? I do own a maxon od808, is that what you mean? I tried putting the maxon in the effects loop and all it really did was make my amp louder and the feedback worse.

Don't put overdrives in the loop. Turn the level up on the pedal and turn the gain down.
