At last, it’s here! The Brand-New Lindy Fralin DynaSonic replacement has finally arrived. This pickup features many output options, with a bunch of great looks – and no hum! We offer this pickup in an Alnico Rod version and a P90 version. Our DynaSonic replacements feature a thick midrange with top-end clarity and articulation.
We decided to make these pickups hum-free by creating them all hum-canceling. We took our award-winning Hum-Cancelling P90 and our new Alnico Rod P90 and gave them sexy DynaSonic looks.
- Two-coil design for hum-free performance
- Alnico rods feature a Fender-type sparkle and clarity
- Hum-Cancelling P90 design for thick, bold, and snarly midrange
- Polished Nickel or Gold surround rings for a customized look
- Your choice of White and Black Pickup Covers
- USA-Made Alnico 5 and Neodymium Magnets, depending on the style
- Hand-wound coils with either 42-Gauge or 43 Gauge wire, depending on the style
- Multiple lead options for easy installation
- 10-Year Warranty against manufacturing defects
Tonal Graph for DynaSonic:
The tone graph below for our DynaSonic features Lows, Midrange, Highs, and general Output.
Alnico Rod DynaSonic:
Alnico Rod Style:
The Alnico Rod style features a broad and thick-sounding midrange, with a top-end sparkle. This model is our Hum Cancelling P90 with Alnico Rods, in a DynaSonic housing. The USA-Made Alnico 5 Magnets give this pickup a dynamic, breathable top-end clarity not found in screw pole pieces.
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. You’ll notice the pronounced Midrange of this pickup as well. You’ll find that the Alnico Rod version will still sound fat and beefy!
Expect a thick, darker, round bottom-end, and a rounder, less aggressive top-end, with a clear, fat midrange in-between. The Hum-Cancelling P-90 style still has that undeniable thick Single-Coil tone that you love, only with no hum at all. Single notes have a punchy, solid sonic footprint and have great sustain. Chords break up nicely with slight compression and excellent note separation. The Output is almost identical to our Stock P-90’s, and they sound incredibly similar – just a little thicker in the midrange. Expect a denser and stiffer treble, not like the Alnico Rod Version which allows you to have more dynamics in your treble.
- What’s the tonal difference between the P90 version and the Alnico Rod version? The Hum-Cancelling P90 is slightly louder, darker, and thicker. It’s quicker to break up. The Alnico Rod version is more “Strat-like” and clearer.
- What output do I choose? That depends on you. Do you want a P90 sound? Or, do you want a Fender sound? That should help you decide.
- What lead do I choose? It all 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 separate volume pot. 2-Conductor: Go with this lead if buying a Single, or installing into a Fender-style Guitar.
- What’s the String Spacing? 49.5mm.
- How do I measure Shim Height? Check out our article on Dogear Shim Spacing here. It will help you figure it out.
- 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. The ideal starting location should be 1/8″ on the bass side, and 1/16″ on the treble side when the High E string is pushed down at the highest fret.

1 Ohm Readings can vary due to a multitude of factors, including ambient temperature, multimeter calibration, different wire batches, and other factors. Due to this, ohm readings are approximate. Learn more about Ohm Readings here.
2 We recommend a 0.02mfd Cap Value on most guitar and bass pickups. The exception is a Magic Cap, which Lindy prefers on the Bridge Pickup of Fender® guitars only. Learn More about Caps Here.
Due to the unique design of this pickup, ohm readings are not helpful when comparing to other designs.
Here are quick answers to common questions we get:
What Ohm Readings does your DynaSonic have?
Navigate to our Tech Specs tab for complete Ohm Readings and more useful information.
Will this pickup fit my instrument?
Check our "Sizing" tab for the size of the pickup. No Sizing tab? Check under the product image gallery for dimensions.
Is your Lead Time of 3-4 Weeks accurate?
It really depends on the shop capacity at the moment, and the size of your order. Feel free to give us a call for an accurate lead time. We always try to underpromise and overdeliver.
What pickup height do you recommend setting your DynaSonics to?
Our recommended Pickup Height is 1/8" (3.175mm) on the Bass Side and 1/16"( 1.5875mm) on the Treble Side. Measure by holding the corresponding side down at its highest fret and measure from the bottom of the string to the top of the pole piece.
