Sound

Improve the tone of your Jazzmaster today with our Hum-Cancelling Jazzmaster pickups. Whether you are a professional recording artist or a local hero, you understand the importance of getting rid of that pesky hum. Hum Cancelling pickups from other manufacturers always fall short of that real Jazzmaster tone, but at Fralin Pickups, we have the perfect solution. Lindy’s unique hum-canceling design provides you with the purest single-coil tone you can get out of a hum-free pickup.

Our Hum Cancelling Jazzmasters features a clear, round bottom end, with smooth and sparkly highs. Expect a balanced and clear midrange with an excellent string definition. You’ll love the familiar Fender pick attack as single notes sound clear and round, and chords will sound warm and defined.

Do you play clean? If so, you’ll find this set’s tone incredibly beautiful as the USA-Made Alnico 5 Magnets supply plenty of Fender sparkle. Playing with distortion will yield creamy, silky tones with a smooth, late breakup. We can overwind this model by 5% to give you more output and a darker and beefier tone – ask for it in the “Notes” field.

Our manufacturing process allows us to achieve unparalleled quality control. Our Hum-Cancelling Jazzmaster Pickups consist of a precision injection mold and USA-Made wire. We use smooth-sounding USA-Made magnets to make this model clear and balanced. Each bobbin is carefully inspected and cleaned before winding.

We wind each pickup by hand, one at a time, using our proprietary “Sectioning” technique. This gives the pickup a sweet, clear tone. Finally, we wax-pot the pickup to preserve the pickup and prevent microphonics.

For a Hum-Cancelling P90 version, we offer this pickup as a Hum-Cancelling Steel Pole Jazzmaster. Check it out.

This pickup is hum cancelling and features reversible polarity if purchased with 2-Conductor With Shield Lead. You might need to rout out a bit of wood to make these pickups fit.

    My experience: My stock jazzmaster (vintera 60s mod) pickups were so noisy I couldn’t use the guitar amplified. The hum-cancelling jazzmaster set saved my guitar, it’s now my go-to for live and rehearsals. I was die-hard for traditional single-coils, but I’m never going back.

    TONE: Absolutely no loss of clarity compared to traditional single coils. Neck pickup is hugely dynamic, the real star of the show. Bridge has the twang-factor without being brittle. Middle position is super tight and controlled sounding with a very even balance of frequencies. A+ in every position.

    Bonus: They arrived well within their estimated shipping time.

    Killer pickups, sound as good as the pickups that came with my Jazz Tele but without the horrible noise, very happy with these.

    I have the Hum Cancelling Jazzmaster pickups installed on my new AM PRO II ( American Professional) Fender Jazzmaster. These pickups are incredible! I wasn’t happy with the noise levels with the stock pickups on the AM PRO II, especially since I play mainly in the bridge position w/ at times high gain. The only sacrifice was losing the ‘tap coil’ selector option built in with the AM PRO II. With the AM PRO II, the tap coil when ‘up’ gave an even more thin treble vibe in the bridge position. I could see use for that at times however worth the sacrifice now that I have NO MORE HUM! There is probably a way to configure that tap coil for another use, however wasn’t worth the extra wiring and costs. My Tech said he could wire that as a kill switch in the future if I wanted as well. I am for sure sold on Fralin and might be looking to purchase upgraded pickups for my AM PRO II Telecaster at some point. So, long story short, if you want to eliminate the HUM and upgrade your Jazzmaster AM PRO II, these are the pickups for you!

    These pickups exceeded my expectations! They are full of dynamic range and so satisfying to the ear. Also dead quiet.

    This is my second set of Hum-cancelling Jazzmaster pickups. I loved my first set so much that it was a no-brainer to grab another set for my second JM. ABSOLUTELY LOVE THEM!

    Quality pickup. Excellent customer service. I’ll definitely be a return customer. However, these particular pickups just weren’t my cup of tea. I was using Duncan Hot Jazzmaster before these and i think i preferred that sound, i just hated the hum. Also, the way the pickups are soldered left no room for the neck pickup to be adjusted on the treble side. Im not sure because its an original 60s JM or not. Im still going to leave them in to cover a few more gigs and see if they’ll grow on me.

    I had these put into a Squire J Mascis Jazzmaster. No more hum, and the sound of these pickups is even better than I’d hoped for. A light year upgrade from the factory pickups. They’re clear and clean as need be. They also pick up fine details in subtle overdrive pedal grit. It has given me a huge new found love for my bridge pickup. Every sound you get out of those is crazy good. Seriously, these pickups are no joke amazing. Great customer service to boot. Lindy got on the phone with me when I had questions on options. Quick shipping. They were installed by the good guys at Guitar 48 in Ventura, CA. Thank you Fralin!

    I have a JMJM that I like the feel of, but wasn’t happy with electronically. I had swapped in pickups from another well known manufacturer but it still wasn’t quite what I was after. I had an experience with another guitar that I put Lindy’s noiseless P-90s into, and they were everything I had hoped for. I thought I’d give them a try here too & am so glad I did. They hit the mark for me and there is no noise. Product is fantastic, communication and service are excellent as well!

    Love ’em! Replaced the stock pickups in an Elliott Tonemaster and am very happy with the results. They keep all the good stuff (bite, attack, sustain, clarity, output, etc.), but have a bit more fullness and none of the NOISE!

  10. Rick Deliz

    Verified Purchase

    I added the Lindy Fralin Jazzmaster pickups to my Fender Squire Jazzmaster and what a tone! And great customer service received them right before my gig and had everything I expected from an amazing company and muxh more! Kudos to you and Thank you!

  11. Frank DeVincenzo

    I had these hum cancelling Jazzmaster pickups installed by the boys at RaritanBay Guitar in NJ, into my 2017 MIM sunburst and rosewood fretboard Jazzmaster. They also changed the pots from the stock 1k to 500m. Switchcraft toggle, and Jack. Silent operating noise, with creamy full chime and grind. You can’t ask for more than that! I would do this mod on any Jazzmaster, import or American. Fralin got this right.

  12. Matt Weinstock

    Verified Purchase

    I had high expectations for these pickups based on Lindy’s reputation, but after I dropped them in my MIJ Jazzmaster, I was really blown away. They sound amazing clean and with dirt, and were dead silent. HIGHLY recommend!
