full story short=

I picked up and started playing my schecter c-1 hellraiser fr and as I was playing thru the clean channel, and I heard a mild overdrive that wasn't present before. I change to my brothers amp and check if the overdrive is still present...wich it is. I try checking if this distortion is from the cable, but its not. I uncover my electronics plate on the back as well as the input jack. the wires seem fine. I change out the battery since these are active PUPs and replace the 9v battery. now no signal is being produced for the amp to work with.

are my EMGs blown? what can I do to repair this!?

well...that's what emg's do, they add a slight gain boost to your tone, to make up for their low out put.

and what amp did you play them through?

Try replacing the battery again with a new battery first. You might have put an old battery in without knowing it. I've never heard a case of pickups being "blown".

Also, all (active) EMG's add gain to the signal. Its just what they do as said above to make up for the low output.

He's not. He's saying that first he ran through his amp, then he tried his brothers amp.

Active EMGs sometimes add more gain when they are a little low on power. On top of what they already have

Btw guys, apparently they aren't making any sound at all now.

For those of you who keep saying EMGs add gain to the signal, he knows. He's had the guitar since september i think and hasn't changed amps. I don't think it should distort the clean channel that much either.

Might be his cable, Input jack, volume pot coming loose, the small part of the nipples of the 9-volt that are exposed could be touching some metal, try unplugging the pickups and plugging them back in, these are just my suggestions, Pretty much problems ive had with the EMGs in my Jackson
