    I have a OM style guitar and I run it into a Boss AD-8 acoustic processor. I have it really bassy cause i don't like thin sounding acoustics, how can i avoid feedback problems? I have a feedback buster in, and the eq is high on the bass end and low on the treble end, and low on the mid end, and it still feeds back sometime.

    Should i introduce some more mids? I just want to avoid a thin sound and feedback.

    Any suggestions to help me out?

    do you have the feedback eliminator on the AD-8 turned on?

    Are you plugging into a PA, electric guitar amp or acoustic guitar amp?

    Is the feedback coming from the stage monitors or the guitar amp?

    Are you playing solo acoustic or with a loud band?

    The eliminator isn't turned on.

    Plugging into a PA.

    From the monitors on stage.

    Sometimes solo/sometimes a duo/or not a very loud band.

    thanks

    Are you using a soundhole-style magnetic pickup? That's the ticket for fat acoustic tones.
