guitarmonky55 Posted July 13, 2004 Report Share Posted July 13, 2004 ok first off, what are the usual symptoms of extremely low batteries in emg pickups? i wired up, i put a battery in and tapped the pickup covers with something metal and it would only make noise on a high gain setting. i strung up, and i found the same problem, so i took out the battery to see what ti sounds like with no batteries, and found no change in sound. so i started messing with my batteries and found one that gave me slightly more volume, but no matter what, my sound is always heavily distorted(even when set on a clean channel of my amp its very distorted). i also find im getting more volume out of the neck pickup. so my question is, could this be a low battery problem(i dont have any fresh on hand all of the ones i tried were old i found around the house) or would this be the result of some wiring mistake i made? its an 81/85 zw set btw.
