Well my RM50 has been very squealy lately. What i mean is, when I'm done playing on my distortion channel at very high volumes the amp squeals like crazy. I have the volume on my guitar at 0, I'm running an ISP Decimator too, and I put new tubes in it. Does anyone have any idea what the problem might be?

Too much gain? Have you tried not standing so close to the amp?

If you've never shielded your guitar, 99% of guitars will do that without having shielded electronics.

Either shield them or get a noise gate.

the gain is at around 3 o clock and im standing about maybe 5 feet away from the amp.

:edit: i have an ISP Decimator.

And the ISP decimator (Which he's using) is one of the best noise gates you can get
Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

Bunch of faggots putting random riffs together and calling it "progressive" deathcore.
Stupid name.
Probably picked "for teh lulz"

Microphonic preamp tubes would be my guess then.

Alright i'll do that when i get it back. (at friends house currently).

Also would getting a 4x12 cab help. Its a 50watt tube running through one speaker. So i maybe it's being pushed to hard. Idk lol...

No, I doubt that would help.

Preamp tubes can go bad just like any other tubes. They can just plain die, or stop amplifying as well and sound weak, or sometimes they just go microphonic. I've had an EH 12AT7 go microphonic on me pretty quickly before.
