Hi there. I play bass guitar in an amateur band, where our rehearsal room is a double side-by-side container (part of a bigger arrangement of several rehearsal rooms). In other words, it's a bit cramped in there. And our music is hard rock and prog rock, so it tends to get a bit loud (the drummer's really the one setting the volume). But when I'm having my bass amp (an older Carlsbro 1x15" cabinet + amp) loud enough, I'm having real problems with feedback in quieter parts of the songs or in between songs. It's really getting annoying. My bass is a Sandberg 5-string bass with active pickups. I've tried using a noise gate, and it killed the feedback. But I also felt that it killed the dynamics in my playing. Long notes were cut early, and the sound felt a bit "muffled". Any advice on how to deal with this? I've searched a bit, but found mostly references to acoustic feedback problems, with hollow-body basses and standup basses. Thanks for any help!
