Maybe your gain levels are too high, or maybe you're standing to close to the amp. Back away or try not to face your amp directly. See if that helps.

yea, ive tried both.. its a fairly small practice room, but i tried the best i could to get away. i also changed all of the settings on the amp (compromising tone for the time being) and it still keep buzzing unless i turned everything waaayy down. then it went away, but then i cant keep up with everyone else!!

u need a graphic equaliser of some sort, ur gettin problems in certain frequencies because of the acoustics in the room and the pickups.. if u find out what frequencies are causing the feedback, then u can turn them down and that will solve the problem and wont affect ur tone
#7
might be cable problem...I always face that problem alot...and my amp is only about the size of my computer's monitor, but it sure buzzed like hell until I bought a new cable.
#8
how would you turn down frequencies? and what type of graphic equalizer would i need as well? thanks for the help so far!

Take all your pedals out and see if the feedback still occurs - play straight from guitar to amp.

If that solves the problem, add the pedals one at a time, until the feedback returns.

If you can narrow it down to a pedal, replace the battery. If that doesn't solve it, could be an issue with the pedal itself.

If it's not the pedals, try a new cable. If it's not the pedals and the cables, I'm not sure what to suggest if you've been playing with the EQ's and gain levels to no avail.

Also, what guitar are you playing? Are your pickups active?

yea, ive tried playing strait thru the amp, and i still got feedback. im using an epiphone les paul with stock pickups. i just new cables recently, all are livewire from guitar center. im not quite sure what to do anymore!

its prob the pickups on your guitar. my guitar player had a similar problem before with a cheaper Epiphone les paul. the stock pu's are not that great and have a bit of hum from them. i see you are using a Boss noise suppressor as well. thats what my guitar player used for a while when he was trying to get rid of the hum and buzzing. he switched to a MXR Smart gate pedal and the noise went almost completley away. then got rid of the guitar. i have heard alot of people say that the Boss NS pedal doesnt work that great.

so i would try swaping pedals. either a MXR smart gate(what i use and him) or a ISP decimater. great pedals!

or maybe it could be connections in your guitar. could be anything.

Sigh, another Bugera horror story.
And I thought they had gone away...



thats not a Bugera horror story.

that happens to so many dif amps and guitar combinations.

like what i was saying above about my guitar player. the amps he uses is a Mesa Dual rec and a Carvin MTS. happened on both those amps

cheap pickups and a high gain amp can bring some noise.

my 5150 II has done this to me amnay times till i had it moded and got a good gate pedal to tame it.

But with a noise gate too?
Maybe try wax potting your pups?



he was useing a Boss noise suppressor, but those are not really realiable. i have heard many bad things about them. my guitar player used one and it did nothing, then moved to a MXR smart gate pedal and no more noise.


i mean but the TS could have some loose connections in his guitar, cheap pickups, the Boss suppressor not working that great, mixed in with a high gain amp.
