BIG, BOLD SINGLE COIL TONE IN A HUMBUCKER COVER.
The Big Single is a Lindy Fralin original design. Based off of a desire to improve the tone of a Mini-Humbucker, Lindy created the formula of the Big Single. Lindy was pleased with this tone so much, that he worked it into a standard Humbucker cover. With the Big Single, you’ll get a bouncy, round single-coil tone – with no hum. We pack all the fat-sounding goodness by hand into a conversation-starting No-Hole Humbucker Cover.
The Big Single is directly in-between the tone of our Fralin P-92 and our Fralin Twangmaster. It has a beefier, bolder tone than our Twangmaster, but cleaner than our P-92. Treble strings sound warm and fat, and wound strings sound bright, like all single-coil pickups. We can wind these pickups with either 42 or 43 gauge wire. 42-gauge wire will sound cleaner and brighter, and work well with 250K Pots. 43-gauge wire will sound thicker and darker and can work well with 500K pots. The Big Single Sounds bouncy, rich, and full. Great for either clean playing or distortion, this pickup will break up a little earlier than our Twangmaster, and is great for anyone looking for a slimmer-sounding P-92.

The Lindy Fralin Big Single uses a 2-coil design with a bar magnet in-between, and uses either 42-gauge or 43-gauge wire. Like our P-92, we sell this pickup based on number of turns. Our stock set uses 6,800 Turns (Bridge) / 6,000 Turns (Neck) with 42 gauge wire for a cleaner, brighter tone with a late breakup. Choose 8,000 Turns (Bridge) / 7,000 Turns (Neck), with 43-gauge wire for a thicker tone. The stronger Big Singles will work better with 500K pots.
