okay i put them on, and they work, but when i remove my han from the strings and stop playing, theres this really really really loud humming noise coming out. could it be ground?
#6
i have 2 pedals, but neither of them are making noise. with the old pickups, there was a ground wire, maybe i need to solder it somewhere.

plus, even with my OD on, i get very litle gain compared to my old pups. these are EMGs, so somethings wrong
#7
take both pedals out of your chain so just leave it as amp -> guitar see if you still get loud hum. also im not too sure but i think that emgs didnt need to be grounded
#9
ok, if you were to be grounded i think one wire should attach to your stoptail piece and the other to the back of the volume pot
#11
im not too sure if they are meant to be grounded. what cable are you using? is it on all channels of your amp? have you tried the guitar through a different amp?
#12
the amp and the rest is fine, it was working fine right before i changed the pups.

i know its the pups. ****ing pups

Like AZN said, check the solder connections, make sure the shielding from the EMG pickup wires is securely connected to the back of a pot. Also make sure you are NOT hooking up the ground wires from the brigde. The EMG pups are not supposed to use the bridge ground.

Make sure your battery is fresh too.
