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


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!

P90 Style:

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.

    I just had the alnico bridge Dynasonic installed in a Gretsch 6120 Eddie Cochran signature model replacing the stock pickup. It’s crystal clear with a balanced midrange and a bell like high end when lightly strummed or finger picked. And it gets nice and dirty when you dig in with a heavier attack. And absolutely no hum! Get one, heck get two!

    I have a question…I had a Gretsch Duane Eddy model with DynaSonics. Wish I hadn’t sold it. Anyhow was wondering if a Fralin DynaSonic in another guitar, perhaps even a solid body, would give me that sound back? It’s a crisp , twangy, sound that I just love. Can you advise me? Also will it fit where a P90 has been installed? Thanks!

    The best sound I’ve gotten out of my Gretsch!

    I’ve tried numerous pickups in my 6120, and nothing ever sounded the way I heard in my head. After falling in love with the Steel Pole P90 in my strat, I thought I’d give the Dyna a try (and convert my 6120 to an Eddie Cochran inspired P90 neck/Dyna bridge). The outcome is perfect. When pushed, the Dyna in the bridge can be a compressed and gritty rock and roll machine. When rolled back it has all the clean chime to nail the country vibe. I now have Fralins in all my guitars and couldn’t be more pleased.

    LOVE these new DynaSonics!

    Fralin folks. I received my DynaSonics as a Christmas present from my mother, Maureen Romanosky. Had my father, Ron ( part time Luthier) put them in. They look amazing and sound even better. We are still fine tuning them, but so far they are all that I hoped for!
    Thanks, Walt Romanosky

    I play in a band that performs music by The Beatles, Petty, The Byrds, Gin Blossoms as well as some jam tunes and asked Lindy for a recommendation on pickups that could do both the Jangle/Chime and a bit heavier sound in the same guitar and still be well balanced in volume. The Fralin DynaSonic (Bridge pickup) does the job without the ice pick ear bleed of other pickups. It also works GREAT with a Jangle Box because you do NOT get the typical squeal and amplified noises you do with many single pickups as Lindy’s DynaSonic is a hum bucking pickup. I’m very pleased with the pickup as I get all the Jangle and NO NOISE!
