My one guitar with EMG's feedbacks like crazy when I have my amp turned up, not even cranked or anything just moderately loud in house jamming levels. It does this even with my back to the amp or standing off to the side but it's a pretty small room. I have the EMG 85 in the bridge and I have an ISP Decimator noise reduction pedal which is awesome and I have set for my passive pickup based Schecter Blackjack C-7 with Duncans. I was thinking I could simply turn up the ISP to clamp down on the quiet parts but I was wondering how problematic this may be in a live scenario. I know I know, plenty of famous bands use EMG's, but I also don't have a sound crew. So I was wondering what you guys do to combat this. Is it just as simple as increasing the noise gate? Is it not much of a problem live if you can stand further away from the amp? Rev.
