RE: FEEDBACK | from ronMar 29 2003 - 07:59

there is actually a thing called a "sonic loop" that makes getting and controlling feedback very possible. but just as someone already said, maybe jeff, each room has a different sonic loop. the loop is created when you position yourself/your guitar in a certain location in relation to your amp. now, the volume of the amp and whatever overdrive or distortion pedals one might use has everything to do with the feedback. so, find you the sonic loop "spot" and go from there. also, using semi-hollow or hollow bodied guitars makes feedback a little easier to get, but harder to control.

Yes he was...and I don't know.
You should ask Dan. He is very knowledgable about gear and technique.

watched/listened to the digital club network feed of the IDAHO AT 40 WATT CLUB (ATHENS, GA) ON 8.4.2000 show for the umpteenth time. There's something about the ghostly feedback in this one that keeps me coming back every so often for a fix. brilliant. was dan seta the guitar conjurer in this one? does he give lessons?

RE: FEEDBACK | from DanJan 23 2003 - 18:04

Compressors seem to take some of the danger out of it. Part of the charm of the experience for me is standing out there naked knowing full well that the feedback gods might leave you looking like a fool holding a block of wood that refuses to cooperate whatsoever.

I always used a volume pedal to get in with the guitar already vibrating and also to get out when things went south.

True masters of the craft are Greg Arreguin and Ben Peeler. Both play sitting down.

For premium feedback see Thin white rope. Try disney girl for starters.

RE: FEEDBACK | from Sam SJan 23 2003 - 07:58

Usually, a compressor or limiter will help induce controlled feedback in situations where you don't want to blast a-la Hüsker Dü. For that matter, Bob Mould even used two DBX compressors after his Distortion+ all through the '90s with Sugar and solo tours. I know Mould is slightly off-topic, but he's a feedback pioneer who influenced Kevin Shields among others.

Also something to keep in mind is that the use of a tremelo/whammy bar helps to "catch the wave" of feedback and ride it in proper Idaho fashion.

A compressor pedal would also help in the sustain department as well and to keep the feedback from getting too out-of-hand.

Just my 2 cents.

RE: FEEDBACK | from JeffJan 15 2003 - 16:25

dont forget about dan, hes a real feedback tamer as well. i just stand in front of the amp and ride the wave so to speak. practice makes perfect. humbucker, a good pedal, maybe a tape delay if your lucky..... every environment/club/church brings new challenges.

RE: FEEDBACK | from Alex N.Jan 15 2003 - 14:22

YES!!! Please answer this question Jeff or John. I've been noodling with feedback for a while, but haven't come upon any great sounds that are to my liking.

feedback | from brianJan 15 2003 - 09:41

just wondering what jeff - john use to get such a controlled feedback? curious as to what gear is used pedals, amps, ect...
