Used it with EMG 40HZ set
I bought a set of EMG 40HZ for a bass and since I didn't wanted to bother with all of the soldering I decided to go with EMG's solderless install (40HZ didn't included any of the quick install components, unlike active EMG pickups).
The whole idea with a solderless install is really great. It took me less than 15 minutes to get everything working. Default connectors are wired for serial humbucker connection. But with spare EMG connector cable and 2-pin connectors you can easily change the connection type (I got 2 spare cables with my pickups that was used for split-coil hum-cancelling connection type).
Wiring kit is also compatible with any other passive pickups. The only thing you need to get it working is connecting 2-pin connector to the pickup cable instead of soldering it.
The only downside of the Wiring Kit I got, was the wrong wiring on one of the pickup cables. It took me a while until I finally measured pickup resistance on the connection cable and understood that 2 wires on the connector were out of place and pickup was working in single coil mode as a result. Fortunately it wasn't too hard to switch a few wires and get a perfectly working humbucker in the end.
I think this was just an isolated error, but in case anyone got some volume problems - check cable wiring first.
Unfortunately there was an error. Please try again later.
Easy, not just for emg pickups
The solderless-kit ordered, not because I am soldering, but because I already with the emg-hz pickups and enclosed plug components have made very good experiences.
This time I wanted in my gibson flying v the humbucker and passive (!) Electronics exchange and to use also the plug-pot and cable of emg.
The set comes with all the parts you need, only the toggle switch must be ordered separately. The background is probably that this component has to be tested before the installation depth and from guitar model to model is different.
All parts of the set are high quality, the cables are made clean with shrink sleeves. Thanks to the "hub" element you do not need any separate resistors anymore.
Simple and clear diagrams as a guide, which allow all combinations of 1-2 pickups with separate or parallel circuits of the pot.
To connect the non-plugged gibson pickups into the emg plug system, I have one of the included emg cables in the middle capped and one end with the cables of the humbucker soldered. Thanks to the diagrams, this was easy to see (color codes of pickup cables before check!)
2 humbucker, 2 separate volume- and a mastertone-poti incl. Output-jack I changed, total conversion time about 30 minutes. Result: blitzsauberer sound.
