    I've never had vocal mic feedback related to using the iRig.
    I have occasionally had feedback, but that was due to poor mic / speaker placement.

    I would agree with Jim's suggestion for the iRig Acoustic Stage.
    I have used it live and find it much better than most under saddle piezos.
    Maybe not as good as a mic, but more freedom of movement....
