This does have  preamp so it is on topic. I got 2 of these EMG active humbuckers in a box with assorted wiring and pots. Link to photo below. I do get low level sound but the battery has no effect. Any ideas? Of course there may be good reason why they were on sale in a junk shop.

Is this an EMG 81? If so you need the connection board as shown here: http://www.emgpickups.com/guitar/humbucking/active-humbucking/81.html .  Have you got it?

Whoa! I thought i had fixed my spelling. Anyway, dont have the board. Will look around the EMG site. The local junk shop just had a box of these with several sets jumbled up so some key parts are missing. I  thought these might be useful for my DIY lap steel as it needs a bridge pickup. https://flic.kr/p/eh33nk. It doesnt sound as good through my LM386 amp as my Hofner Shorty which has a humbucker in it.
