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.

Tech Specs

See below for the estimated DCR and Polarity Information for our Hum-Cancelling Jazzmaster.

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. Some customers were required to rout about 1/16" - 1/8" from their pickup cavities. On American Vintage Reissue Guitars (AVRI), you'll need to lift the Copper Plate, rout some of the wood (1/8" - 1/4"), and replace the copper plate.

FAQs

  • What’s the tonal difference between this and your Standard JazzmasterNo Hum, of course! Other than that, not much. It’s very clean, clear, and articulate. The midrange might be a little bigger, and the highs might be slightly softer in the Hum-Cancelling version.
  • How do you orient the pickup? The D magnet will be the tallest magnet – so the leads come out of the “treble” side.
  • What’s the String Spacing? 52mm.
  • 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 string, and 1/16? on the treble string, when the High E string is pushed down at highest fret.
  • Wiring Diagrams? We don’t offer wiring diagrams for the Jazzmaster, but you can find them all over the place on the internet. White is Hot, Black and Shield is ground.

    I’ll be honest, a little bright for me. To be fair I’m playing with stainless steel frets and a ziricote board, so, brighter than rosewood and nickel. As far as clear and articulate, absolutely. I was hoping for a bit more bass, but I’m hoping to compensate with my amp. Hope this helps.

      Hey Matthew,

      Would you like to exchange it for a heavier wind? We can add a few extra turns on the pickup and it will thicken up the midrange, and decrease the highs. Email us at [email protected] if you’d like to process this exchange!

    Howdy! I just finished installing these into an AV 65 Jazzmaster. The stock pickups were great, but the hum and bite would get to me, especially when stacking drive/boost pedals. The Hum cancelling jazzmasters are a huge upgrade, not only because of the hum cancelling but also tonally. There is a significant reduction in the harsh top end that can be associated with jazzmasters and i’m feeling a lot more punch in all positions! I primary play though an AC15HW1. previously i couldn’t really use the top boost input as there was just too much buzz/hum/interference. not anymore! great pickups and they dropped right in. i did have to remove and replace the stock foam for something thinner. I cut up some cymbal felt and that was it!

    4.5 stars.

    I loved my Antiquity’s but I could not stand the hum. I slapped in a set of Lindys hum canceling Jazzmaster pickups. First thing I noticed is they are more compressed, not as open and wide tonally as the Antiquitys were. The Jazzmaster is still a very bright guitar, and still has a lot of that bass. No hum, and sounds really solid with a ProCo Rat.
    I would not recommend for someone who plays clean all the time. However, if you are doing the rock thing, these keep a lot of that Jazzmaster sound. I want to add, install these so that the tallest pole is under the D string!
