1. Get an Astatic or Shaker or Hohner Blues blaster mic with a volume
control on it. This gives you much more precise volume and feedback
control, but none of these mics sounds like a Green Bullet.
2. Buy a graphic equalizer. Even a little six-channel equalizer stomp
box works OK - particularly since it usually has an output control on it.
The more channels, though, the better.
3. Buy a volume pedal and plug it between your mic and the amp.
4. Move your amp around. Don't stand directly in front of it on stage.
5. Make sure your pre-amp tubes are good. They're often microphonic and
will contribute to feedback. Turn on your amp and tap the point of each
pre-amp tube with your finger. If the sound is amplified through the amp,
the tube's microphonic and should be replaced.
