The following were the issues and not the pickups
- Bad soldering job. I had someone who knows what they are doing redo my shitty soldering.
- Electric noise in my recording room. I hooked up my MXR Smart Gate which helped a ton.
- The biggest issue was clipping inside the Kemper without seeing it. I wanted more saturation and turned up the amps volume. Even though it was perfectly green in the output section, it was clipping in the power amp section causing lots of noise.
As of now I am content with JBs. Just give me a month and I will hate them again for some other reason.
