    Okay Im at the edge of insanity and I honestly cant find the problem here.

    I have ownded a mesa single rec head, a peavey 5150 and I had given up so I just settled for a bugera 6260 2x12 combo. Through all of these amps I have run a ibanez ts9 and a boss ns2 and once i get the amps to about 4 for volume this feedback comes out of nowhere. It has done it on all the amps and Its driving me crazy. I have tried new patch cables and everything.

    PLEASE HELP ME!!!!:bowdown:

    Is it all with the same guitar? Could be microphonic pickups if you knock on guitar body does sound come through amp?

    Have you been plugging these all into the same outlet each time? Could be a power issue. Are you running a power conditioner?

    Get rid of the NS-2, and get an ISP Decimator.

    What settings are you running? What kind of room are you playing in? Are you facing the cab when you play?

    Yea if you're facing the cab that could definitely be it too. If you notice that's how Hendrix coaxed a lot of that feedback out of his amp...

    Can standing too close to the thing in general cause noise?

    What are your settings?

    Mainly GAIN and your boost settings.

    Also have you tried running the NS-2 in the X-pattern?

    Feedback is NOT uncommon for Hi-Gain amps.

    try to make sure no electrically 'noisy' appliances are running (vacuum cleaners, arc welders, etc) and take a look out the window and check to see if you see a radio tower nearby or have a big mess of power lines running over your house.

    Defective NS-2? Have you tried using a different noise gate?
