Dude, that was my first thought too
2) are you in the monitor?
3) how loud is your amp?

playingdead wrote:Is this on your Resurrection? I have developed the exact same problem with my Resurrection Tiger guitar lately. My setup has been stable both in gear and volume since 2009 and this started happening a few months ago. Piercing feedback when the overdrive is on, not as bad when it's off. At first I thought it was worse on stages with low ceilings but it happened at an outdoor gig, too.
My first thought was that the middle Super II had gone microphonic on me, so I had my local tech swap the neck and the middle pickups. That did not fix the problem.
My guitar was rewired by Gary Brawer himself in 2010, long before the problem arose, so I don't think it's a wiring or shielding issue, either -- nothing has changed on my guitar to account for this. Keir, have you tried changing the battery on the buffer? I did not think of that until just now. At one point I had a Scott Walker Santa Cruz guitar with no buffer in it and it had terrible feedback problems when the effects loop was being used -- some sort of crosstalk issue. Adding a buffer fixed it. That's another thing to try ... plug the guitar straight into the effects and straight into the amp (no loop) and see if it still feeds back with the overdrive on.
I am happily using my Scott Walker Special guitar at gigs now, which has the same Wald buffer and a Super II in the middle, and it does not give me problems. It also has a copper pickup surround (my Tiger is brass).
The local tech suggested wax potting the pickups, but I am reluctant to try that because of what it might do to the tone.
Let us know if you get it figured out, man. For now, my Tiger is mothballed.

Surely it's my Resurrection (and don't call me Shirly), I have always had the issue but it seems to be getting worse. Its not the effects chain as it happens with the OBEL engaged or disengaged. If I simply turn towards the amp (even 10 feet away at a show it goes nuts), if I engage any kind of distortion its just about constant feedback when I am not playing notes. I'm trying to find a video clip example here....
