I play through a Fender Bassman and have for years ... I purchased the Anti-Feedback + from John over 6 months ago ... I gig very frequently in the Atlanta area and around the southeast ... I am so pleased with this peice of equipment I could just crap. I have the Harp Commander III, the BBE Two Timer, a BBE Sonic Maximizer, a Boss CE-5, a Boss BD2 Blues Driver, a Boss RV-5 Reverb and the Kinder Anti-Feedback Eliminator in my pedalboard ... it absolutely rocks !!! I can get all the gain I want or need from the vintage Fender Bassman with absolutely no feedback from any volume level. No one on stage can cover up the harp breaks and I can run all the fills and stay in the background with the same quality at the lower db's ... I would encourage any harp player to purchase this pedal ... the only negative i had with the pedal when delivered was it only has 1 option for power (two 9 volt batteries) (:-( ... not cool John ... I use an I-Spot power supply and notched a small notch in the pedal and use the two 9 volt attachments that come with the I-spot to feed power to the unit now ... it is flippin off the chain everything I can do with my processing now, only because of the Kinder ... I could not get anywhere near the gain or volume before feedback before I purchased this pedal ... you can call me "one satified customer ... only one huge drawback ... John is over 70 years old and builds the components for this unit in his shop ... he may not build them much longer (:-(


Hey ipray2hp ... I'm in West Atlanta. Trying to get more hands on info with this kinder pedal. I'm playing usually straight into a 40w Fender Blues Deluxe RI but occasionally use a Bad Monkey Overdrive. I have made preamp tube changes but trying to maximize my volume playing with some very very loud guitar players these days. I sure would love to talk with you about the antifeedback pedal some time. I will buy one if it really buys me a lot more headroom and overall output volume against everyone else in the band. I will continue to mike the amp when needed but this pedal sounds promising and I'd like to take a first hand look at one or at least talk with you about it. My name is Greg and email is gregory.bates@ymail.com. GREAT SITE here ... It'd be great to talk with another fellow harp player here in Atlanta too ... thanks!

I just can't see using a bassman with 3 12AX7's, then buying bandaids to tame it. I see ZERO benefit. All you have is an amp with a harsh razor-edge feedback threshold.

The simplest, cost effective and powerful solution is to reduce the amp's gain through tube substitution. Reducing gain need not compromise tone, reduce power or have any other negative effects. Having 3 12AX7's is like driving a 400Hp sports car with 1/2" of throttle pedal travel. Reducing to more manageable gain STILL gives you quiet idle AND 400 HP at full throttle, but is more like driving the same car with 6" of pedal travel. Much easier to drive. It makes the feedback threshold soft and manageable. You only need enough gain to get you to max usable power with the knobs turned way up and a large signal from your mic. Anything more works against you.

I continue to believe that you need NOTHING in the way of noise gates, anti-feed back boxes, EQ's or anything else to get lots of volume out of a properly set up amp for harp. I don't have feedback problems and I play in very, very loud out of control jam environments. I plug my mic straight into my amp.

part of the equation for me is finding the best settings on the amp console re high, mid, low, presence, etc. different rooms and different bands require different settings to get the most out of the amp and mic at the time.

thanks all for your input on the afb. when i hit the lotto i'll become a mad sound scientist and mess with more gadgets.

Oh yeah, I've just started a new page for myself over at Reverb Nation. Drop on by and check out the tunes and photos. Most of the photos so far are from some blues cruises I went on. I'll be adding more tunes and photos regularly. Here's the link:

I'll let ya's know when I get the MicroHush clip done if anyone's interested.

having just dropped a serious chunk of change for this new bassman, of course i'm leery of committing more $$ to gear. this all started with looking for a good tube compliment to cut feedback and get volume, and i found a good way to go that did boost volume and retain tone, as evidenced when i took my stuff out to a jam last week. if i were gigging with an electric band i might be more prone to step up and add something like the harp commander or the kinder. as it is, 95% of my current music is played acoustically or at low volume with a small tube amp. and we never turn up to the point of feedback.

but i like to know what's out there, how people like it, and just what the possibilities are!

i remember getting my first hot rod, an old chevy truck with a lot of horses under the hood. i was really something. until everyone started putting nitrous kits under the hoods of their mustangs. which i could neither justify nor afford!

i'm using 12au7, 12ax7, and 12au7 as my pre amp configuration. and i actually had to drop the volume at my mic the other night, with 2 guitars on stage! so this was more about being curious than looking to spend any more $$ any time soon. still, now i have a bit more info to consider when the time comes!
