Hey guys, I've been mostly lurking around here for awhile and I had a few questions about upgrading my rig. Heres my current setup: Heritage H-150 W/ Seymour Duncan 59's> Blackstar HT-100> Rivera Knucklehead 4x12 cab with celestion V30's It sounds great, but I would like to get more gain out of the amp with less noise. When I'm using the red channel I have a HUGE problem controlling high pitched squealing (not humming). Even with the gain at 11:00 or so, it is noisy as ...., moving further away from the amp doesn't do shit. what causes this? Amp? Guitar? The main sound I'm going after is modern high gain(I'm finding myself becoming a tightfag I'm sure this board needed one more of those). I'm trying to put together a shopping list and put things in order of importance, so far this is what I'm considering: 1. ISP Decimator 2. Change Bridge Pickup 3. Tubescreamer 4. 10 band EQ in the loop 5. .... it, sell the amp and save up for a different amp Simple is good for me, I literally have no pedals right now. I like using my guitar settings to change the sound rather than the amp. What do you guys think?
