Possible To Get Controlled Feedback With Hd500x?

The squeals are a sign your pickups are microphonic.

I got a Epiphone Les Paul that does it. It is the Chinese pickups.

 

On a different guitar with better pickups I can get feedback just fine using an amp.

Tube pre I cant recall the settings off the top of my head but it started from 

a tube tone patch from custom tone.

 

But honestly, it is the nature of a cranked valve amp.

I have higher end pickups in my guitars, so I don't think it's the pick ups. I've had no problems getting feedback (controlled) in the last 25 years with my amps.

 

Regardless, I appreciate everyone's input, I'll give it all a shot. :)

I like to use feedback occasionally live, so I was actually a little concerned about being able to get controlled feedback with a POD.

 

When I hook it up to the small PA system I have in basement using a single 2x8 Crate PA speaker, I get feedback that is identical to the feedback I get with my real amp. Of course if I use smaller speakers with the POD, it doesn't work like that. So yes, it's possible as long as you have the right equipment and are in the right proximity to it.
