    Noise supressor/gate

    i have a 80 W combo amp (peavey bandit 112 transtube, the newest version). When i play with a drummer i need to crank up the volume... well this causes a lot of feedback. So my question is: Since i dont want to buy a pedal that is just a noise gate... could a distortion pedal with a built in gate get rid of the feedback? for example the MXR fullbore metal pedal etc.

    That would work but if you're willing to spend more check out the Amptweaker Tight Metal Pedal

    If you end up going only with a noisegate the ISP decimator is the standard.

    Don't overlook a Boss NS-2 though. Works great.

    I'd say maybe back off your gain a little too. I find people tend to over apply the gain at low volume but you don't need it when you turn up. If I were you I'd just save a bit and get a nice gate pedal. You'll probably have it for years so I wouldn't be too concerned getting a combo pedal.

    +1 and try standing a little further away as well as try facing different directions.

    +2 for less gain and the ISP Decimator
