word to the wise, the stock soapbars seem to be unpotted and they squeal like a banshee at volume with dirt. I found someone on TGP making similar complaints. Going to try potting mine because learning is cool, but probs looking at replacements down the road.

only one way to find out, do it for science

A noise gate helps a lot with these.

Im going to go swap pickups at some point but have no idea what I want.

I see that you mean well but a noise gate is antithetical to everything I do :lol:

I love feedback, just not bad, ugly feedback.
Yeah i get it - it kinda robs the tone a tiny bit. I just have a cheap no-name from amazon that works pretty well.

I get a lot of noise from my Monitor so i kinda have to face a certain direction to minimize the noise.

When i push my Orange really hard with the Plumes and Special Cranker at the same time it does get squealy if I am facing the wrong way and i have the gain up past noon.

I have an HX Stomp also and the gate on it works pretty well.
