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 :yesway:

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

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.

Less gain, and ISP decimators are the best noise gate I have ever used (talking about the rack version, never tried the pedal). Quality stuff that just works and doesn't fuck with dynamics. Can't beat it.

The ISP Decimator pedal absolutely rules I never had much luck with the Boss one though.
This is the general consensus I've heard around forums as well, I've only ever played with the ISP but a lot of my buddies swear by the ISP's and rage about how shitty their old NS-2's were :lol:

Yeah some guys I know say the same thing. They ditched their NS-2s and went for the ISP and were going on about how much the Boss had altered the tone.

I always read heard that the boss took away some low end... but then recently I read that it compresses the signal a bit... dunno, but my ISP is awesome.
