What's the Best Pedal to Create Feedback?

I bought a Boss Super Feedbacker and Distortion and I am not happy with the sound and tone. I have heard about Rocktron's Rampage and Roger Mayer's Mongoose but haven't tried them yet, I was wondering if anybody out there can help me out. Thanks T.J.

We need more information, if you are playing a high gain amp at loud volumes, just about any drive pedal can push it into feedback. If you are wanting feedback at bedroom whisper levels, you probably have about the best (only) pedal there is to simulate feedback short of going to a sustainer system. Real feedback is generated by a signal feeding back on itself through an amplification system, kind of an infinite loop thing. It only really comes into play at high volume levels. The Boss pedal simulates that phenomenon at manageble levels.

The Rampage and Mongoose (I still want to try one of those) pedals are just distortion pedals.

My friend has a Boss multi-effects thing (can't remember which one) which has a feedback function where you just hit and hold the pedal to add feedback, and let go to get rid of it, it overrides your input signal completely (i.e. fades into the feedbacked note). It sounds pretty realistic, and usually uses your note, or one an octave or other interval off from it, if you don't play anything, and just tap the pedal repeatedly, it just plays random notes, really cool sounding.

I know that Analog Man can mod a Boss DS-1 pedal to do it. But for me there's simply no need. All I have to do is come closer to the cabinet.

I had a feedbacker and also didn't like it. It's just a generated tone on the note playing when the button is hit. I suggest getting a small amp like a pignose and feeding it some signal and keeping it close to your strings. I have a little Fernandes Nomad that sings with feedback because there's a speaker right behind the strings!
