The Fralin Big Single Mini Humbucker is a new kind of Mini Humbucker that has a big, round single-coil sound with no hum. This Mini Humbucker has a Bar Magnet that gives you an authentic Single-Coil tone, with more thickness and roundness. With two variations, you can choose if you want this pickup to give you more of a single coil tone, or more of a humbucker tone.

BIG, BOLD SINGLE COIL TONE IN A MINI-HUMBUCKER COVER.

The Big Single Mini® 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 Mini®. With the Big Single Mini®, 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.

FEATURES:

  • Hum-Cancelling Thick Single Coil Tone, in a Humbucker Cover
  • Lindy Fralin® Original Design
  • 2-Coil design with a bar magnet for silent, huge tone.
  • Bouncy, rich, warm.

SOUND:

The Big Single Mini® 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 Mini® 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.

42 Gauge Sound:

43-Gauge Sound:

TECHNICAL INFORMATION:

The Lindy Fralin Big Single Mini® 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. Choose 6,800 Turns (Bridge) / 6,000 Turns (Neck) or 42 gauge wire for a cleaner, brighter tone with a late breakup. Choose 8,000 Turns (Bridge) / 7,000 Turns (Neck), or 43-gauge wire for a thicker tone. The stronger Big Single Minis® will work better with 500K pots.

CHOOSING THE LEAD:

  1. Gibson® Braided Shielded: Most popular. Use this if you have no special requirements (Coil tapping, Phase Reverse or Series / Parallel).
  2. 2-Conductor With Shield: Use this if you have Phase-Matching needs.

CHOOSING COLOR AND COVER OPTIONS:

    First off, customer service is exceptional. Since I paid for the pickup but had it sent to a different address (my guitar repair man), they contacted me to make sure the transaction was legitimate. Once I confirmed the order, we had the pickup in just 2 days. As for the pickup itself, it’s a 42 gauge/6000 turn with 2-conductor lead installed in a 1991 MIJ ’62 Reissue Tele. The raw nickel cover fits the aesthetic of the guitar perfectly. Sound wise, it’s beautiful, sitting somewhere between a low output humbucker and a Strat-style neck position single coil. It’s full and fat without being muddy, and at the same time bright, chime-y and articulate. It responds very well to pick attack and volume changes, and I really enjoy dialing a little bit of grit into an amp and using the guitar itself to clean up the sound or dirty it up just based on my playing. My bridge pickup is a Seymour Duncan Jerry Donahue, and the two pickups sound great together in the middle position, retaining some of the fatness of the Big Mini but with a clearer, “quackier” tone, almost Knopfler-like. All in all, the Big Single Mini is an excellent pickup that I’d recommend to anyone, especially those looking to beef up a Tele. Thank you!

    This is a great pickup. I’m using it in a tele neck position with 250k pots and it sounds great. I’m considering it for a couple of my other guitars.

    I tried Lindy Fralin Blues Spesial on my Strat, and were very satisfied. I therefor bought a L F Blues Spesial single coil and a L F mini humbucker to my custom made tele, and it sounds perfect.
