 Several suggestions:
 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.
