EXPERIENCE THE SOFTER SIDE OF P90.

The Hum-Cancelling P90 with Alnico Rods is the perfect pickup for those looking for a cleaner, more articulate P90 pickup. It has an airiness and sparkle not found with adjustable pole pieces. Also, It’s great for those looking to balance a dark guitar. You’ll find that this pickup stays clean, while still having a fat, beefy midrange and thickness commonly found with P90 pickups.


FeaturesFEATURES:

  • Alnico Rods for a Fender-type sparkle
  • Humbucker housing available in Polished Nickel, Raw Nickel, Gold, and Jet Black Nickel Covers
  • Hum-free design for completely noiseless operation
  • 49.5mm Standard Spacing works on Gibson-Style instruments as well as Fender Neck spacings.

SoundSOUND:

The Alnico Noiseless P90 will not sound like a traditional P90, but one with a familiar Fender sparkle on the top-end. Clean and articulate when playing without distortion. You’ll find that the nuances of your playing will come out as this pickup “breathes” more than it’s compressed P90 counterpart. With distortion, you’ll find a smooth, late breakup with a familiar Fender Strat-type tone.

Our Alnico Noiseless P90 features a pronounced Midrange as well. You’ll find that the Alnico Rod Hum-Cancelling P90 will still sound fat and beefy!

FAQFAQ’S:

  1. What’s the tonal difference between this and your Hum-Cancelling P90? The Hum-Cancelling P90 is slightly louder, darker, and thicker. This pickup will sound not as much like a P90, more like a Fender pickup.
  2. What lead do I choose? This depends on your guitar and a few other things. Gibson Lead: Go with this if installing a set into a Gibson-style instrument, where each pickup has its respective volume pot. 2-Conductor: Go with this lead if buying a Single, or fitting into a Fender-Style guitar.
  3. What’s the String Spacing? 49.5mm
  4. How far away from the strings does the pickup need to be? Push your Low E String down at the highest fret. Measure from the top of the pole piece to the bottom of the string. Ideal starting location should be 1/8? on the bass string and 1/16? on the treble string, when the High E string is pushed down at highest fret.

    Get big, lovely, single coil tone with no noise!
    Superb clarity, bright and glassy but still classy.

    It’s higher output than your average single coil, so keep that in mind. If you’re looking for that rich, high output single coil tone with no noise, I highly recommend it! If you want something that will pull an edge-of-breakup amp back down off the ledge (without adjusting your volume knob), you can drop the pickup height (like I did) or possibly look at the lower output options like the Sunbucker.

    My friends are very impressed with the sound of the P90; one said he may have to buy a pair. They are truly noiseless & yet have that fenderish brightness.
