i wired up an emg 81 with just the volume knob and i cant hear anything unless the gain in really high. But even then its only sounds clean. should i try wiring it a different way?

you may have a problem with the wires coming from the 9v battery
My stuff:
ESP LTD KH 202 w/ emg 81's
PEAVEY 5150 II Head
4x12 MESA BOOGIE RECTIFIER CAB


A recent study shows that 92% of all teens have moved on to rap music. Put this in your profile if you are one of the 8% who stayed with the real music.

hay, dunno if this helps, but i used to have an emg and when i wired it in the first time i wasnt sure which way the little white connector thing on the back of the pickup went, it was well quiet like you said, all i did was turned the connector over, must have had it the wrong way round, solved all my problems...
