    I know its just another feedback question you guys are thinking. But I looked at all the other threads on here and they all ran through pedals. I dont run through any pedals just my guitar straight into my amp. And theres no hum while im playing. But as soon as I stop playing at volume makes this high pitch sound unless i turn my volume on my guitar off and then it like makes this scratchy hum noise at thats low volume. Im running my RG7620 with stock pickups into a Randall RH200G2 into a H&K Warp 7 cab. And I have played through other power sources because I just did a show with it at school and it did the same thing there. How could I fix this problem without spending too much money?

    1. Have you tried with other guitars
    2. Have you tried changing the cable?
    3. Does this problem appear with cleans too, or only distortion?
    4. Does it appear with bridge, neck or both pickups?
    5. Have you tried running your guitar into another amp or interface, such as modelling amps etc..?

    It could be you amp, guitar or cable.
    My guess is that there might be a bad connection at the input jack of your amp or your guitar. It might as well be something loose or a bad connection inside your guitar too.

    Have done multiple guitars it hums more with my 7 string then my parker but they both still do it. Have not tried changing the cable. Only on distortion but not on the classic distortion channel, only on the High gain distortion channel. With both pickups all though on coil taps it gets worse. And no I havent run into an interface.

    Sometimes broken cables or well-used input jacks can make tikking/noise.
    I would try changing the cable and see what happens. If it doesnt help, well.. Then its hard to tell. could be a bad input jack, broken transistor or anything else.

    I tried a different chord too and it still does the humming. But it was worth with the other chord i used.

    a decent noise gate sounds like the ticket. high volume plus high gain usually results in feedback.

    It was currently at 10 at the time. Rolled it back to 8 or so and it stops the feedback. Until I go to a higher volume then itl start feedbacking again but I figured this. Now I just want to Know what kind of pedal I should get. Since theres no pedals involved but probably soon there will be would a ISP Decimator do the job?

    Yes an ISP should get rid of the problem, but I'd suggest maybe rolling back on the gain a bit more too.
