Fizz Problem

Hey guys!
I have been troubling with fizz for a long time. So i decided to re solder all wires, i checked ground cables 3 times, yet didn't work again.
Here's what it sounds like with %30 gain. Even with clean amps i still hear ANNOYING fizz.
My pups are x2n-fast track1-activator x neck
Any suggestions?

Re: Fizz Problem

I guess i didnt give enough info.
Its about wiring. I have no problem with my other guitars. I didn't had problem till i swap pups. I messed something but i dont know. All wires seems legit.
This is where i get help for wiring.

Re: Fizz Problem

that's exactly happened to my ESP with EMG !
Same annoying noise.

Till now, I still don't know what makes the noise.

it suddenly appears on the ESP, before it's so dead quiet.

Re: Fizz Problem

There must be easy explanation for this. I bet its too easy fix. A blog about fizz would help both of us.

Re: Fizz Problem

It sounds like a hum or buzz on the recording.

If you touch the strings or the pole pieces on the pickups, does the sound go away or get quieter?

Re: Fizz Problem

Nope. I still hear that annoying fizz. But it reduced when i touched the pole's on switch(pole numbers 1-2-3, pole's of humbucker choice) when re soldering. (it was soldering place, not on pickup)
+ theres no pole's on my pickups
