Fender Frontman 212r

I have a Fender Frontman 212r and an Epiphone Les Paul Standard Eb. It's a fine amp but.. when I increase the drive to 6 or more, some of my strings start vibrating mildly and I'm hearing to a weird noise. I think that the palm muting is not the best way to avoid that noise. Is there any problem with my space, strings or something?

P.S. I have used many guitars, so the problem is not my Paula.

Describe the noise.

It's like IIIIIIIIIIIIII. As I said, when I increase the drive to 6(or more) my strings (not all of 'em) start vibrating without touching them.

Sounds like feedback.
Move further from the amp, or face away from it, and see what happens.

So I looked like I was deep

Sounds like feedback. Step away from the amp or put your back to the amp. Turning down the gain or works too, in small spaces.

The problem could be the strings though?

If what you hear is similar to the sound clip on this page, then the strings are most likely not the culprit: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Audio_feedback

Feedback isn't necessarily a bad thing - once you learn to control and use it

Yes, it kinda sounds like this, but in 00:10 of the vid, the sound stays this way.
