I play a jackson DK2M Dinky through some $400 crate solid state halfstack. And once you get enough volume with enough distortion going, the amp gets a high pitched squeal coming out of it, but only when the guitar isnt making noise some other way, like playing or even ringing open or like sliding your fingers across the fretboard. The noise isnt feedback cuz it has nothing to do with the room your in or the relationship between the guitar and amp, how close or if its facing it or anything. The only factors tha effect it are volume, distortion, and if my tone knob on the guitar is turned up enough, but i need all 3! The amp and guitar are both fairly brand new and in perfect condition, the only thing i can think of is maybe the pickups because the guitar seems to have this problem with other amps but the amp doesnt seem to have this problem with other guitars, regardless of what it is i've got $300 to fix it, pickups, amp head, cab whatever, any suggestions? thanks in advance

Feedback, same thing for my amp. Noisegate would help.

Before I knew anything about music, guitars, amps, whatever, I always loved the sound of feedback just before the guitar kicks in.

I have no info on how to cover it up, but try to use it to your advantage if that's your style.

its that the pickups are microphonic and its making feedback. My Epi Explorer does that with my Line 6, but it doesnt with my Schecter.

i mean i've got a les paul that will feedback if you get some volume and distortion and face the amp, but like you can move the guitar around and change the sound or if you move/and or turn away to stop it if you want, this is one constant sound, a single pitch that gets higher with more volume/tone/distortion. the pitch literally gets higher cuz you actually hear a jack white-esque pitch bend when you roll the volume up, not to doubt anybody but this doesnt sound like any feedback i've ever gotten, it shouldn't be so constant and unchangeable, or at least imho i dont think.

a Jackson DK2M Dinky has Duncan's in it so it leads me to think that you've just got way too much distortion going on... back off the gain a bit

are they Duncan Designed? or Seymour Duncan? because DD's could still be microphonic

ya like the guy said above, get a noisegate and you're good. I think the ISP Decimator is what people on here recommend?
#17
Ill look into the noisegate, seems like a good idea. the pickups say seymour duncan, but musiciansfriend wont give me a name of the pickup, just "dual seymour duncan pickups"
#19
ah, well in that case go with the noise gate
