    Re: Feedback Frequencies

    It depends a lot on the situation. Feedback can occur at pretty much any frequency but I'd say the most common would be in the midrange around 1 - 4kHz. This is simply because that's the range vocal microphones are designed to work with most efficiently.

    An example of low-frequency feedback is when stage rumble gets transferred through a mic stand. Mid-low frequency feedback can be a problem when micing some instruments such as acoustic guitars.

    Another factor is the room you're in. Rooms tend to have resonant frequencies and these will be more susceptible to feedback.

    In short, feedback can occur at whatever frequency you're dealing with.
