    Feedback is usually caused by microphonic pickups. Try a better instrument through the amp, see if it makes a difference.

    Unplug it.
     
  4. Stand farther away from it. Err.. noiseless pickups? There isn't a lot you can do. It's always going to have a slight hum.

    Try and isolate the cause/problem by screwing with just one variable at a time. Might just be your treble.
