Sound

The Alnico Noiseless P90 Humbucker is the perfect pickup for those looking for a cleaner, more articulate tone in a Humbucker Cover. Even though we call it a P90, it’s not quite a P90: 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.

The Alnico Noiseless P90 Humbucker 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. Chords have an excellent string-to-string definition, and single notes are round and warm. With distortion, you’ll find a breakup that is late and smooth with a familiar Fender Strat-type tone.

Our Alnico Noiseless P90 Humbucker features a pronounced midrange as well. You’ll find that the Alnico Hum-Cancelling P90 Humbucker will still sound fat and warm. The midrange is softer than a P90, but this pickup is fatter and warmer than our Big Single and Twangmaster.

Are you looking for more of a traditional P90 tone? You won’t find that here. This model features a more “Fender” quality to it. If you’re looking for a traditional P90 tone, check out our P90 and Hum Cancelling P90!

    Hey Hollie, you can certainly purchase the Bridge model only. We recommend selecting 2-Conductor lead just in case you need to reverse the phase down the road.  - Tyler

  2. Hi ! Just a question out of curiosity : I just noticed that on the set I received the magnets under the D string are beveled whereas the others are not, what is the reason/purpose to that ?

    Hey Christophe, the beveled D is just how we designed the pickup for optimal tone and looks. Also, Lindy always likes to bevel a magnet the taller it gets.

  4. What do you think about putting the alnico noiseless p90 in the neck position of a michael tuttle classic s HSH ? I’m looking for more character and classic strat neck tone versus the original humbucker which is kind of dark and muddy.

  8. Hi, I just received one of your Humbucker sized P90 pickups for the neck of my Les Paul. One of the middle pole pieces sticks up higher than the other. Is that supposed to be that way and do I turn the pickup so that pole is under the G or D string? This is my first experience with a P90 so pretty clueless. Thanks

    Verified Buyer

    I could say thaI I think this is the greatest sounding pickup ever made but like all things musical that would be very subjective as applications vary greatly as well as musical tastes. So instead I will just describe this pickup as my ears hear it. I own both humbucker and single coils guitars as most do but. Prefer and favor single coils. Thats not to say that humbuckers don’t have certain qualities that you can’t achieve from single coils and there have been many innovative designs that have tried to bridge the gap but usually sound more like one or the other. That is what makes this one so unique and original, and in all honesty I don’t even no how possible. It has all the great qualities of a humbucker but still sounds like a single coil. Again how is this possible?
    The qualities I speak of that I have never heard of in single coils are. massive harmonics much like a SD JB, also notes bloom like a high quality humbucker, low end similar to a humbucker but with sparkling chimey highs, all of this but still sounding like an authentic single coil. I know this doesn’t make sense as you saying well it has to sound like one or the other because they are 2 entirely different animals….we’ll that was true until this came along. This pickup is not only original it is revolutionary.
