Hum-Cancelling P90 With Alnico Rods FEATURES:
The Hum-Cancelling P90 with Alnico Rods is the perfect pickup for those looking for a cleaner, more articulate P90 pickup. It has an airiness and sparkle not found with adjustable pole pieces. Also, It’s great for those looking to balance a dark guitar. You’ll find that this pickup stays clean, while still having a fat, beefy midrange and thickness commonly found with P90 pickups.
Even though we are calling this pickup a P90, it’s not quite a P90. P90s are known for a snarly midrange and a stiffer top end. The Alnico Noiseless P90 is softer, cleaner, and has that ‘sparkle’ that you’re familiar with! This pickup is available in all our Soapbar and Dogear versions.
- Alnico Rods for a Fender-type sparkle
- Soapbar / Dogear construction
- Hum-free design for completely noiseless operation
- 49.5mm Standard Spacing, with an option for 52mm Bridges (Black & Cream Soapbar only)
- Wound with USA-Made 42 Gauge SPN Wire
- Backed by our 10 Year Warranty against manufacturing defects
- Wax Potted to prevent microphonics and corrosion
- 30-day Risk-Free exchange policy
The Alnico Noiseless P-90 will sound like a regular P90, but with a familiar Fender sparkle on the top-end. 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. Expect a clear pick attack and a warmer midrange.
This midrange of this pickup is pronounced as well. You’ll find that the Alnico Noiseless P90 will still sound fat and beefy!
Are you looking for more of a traditional P90 tone? You won’t find that here. This model features a more “Fender” quality to it. If you’re looking for a traditional P90 tone, check out our P90 and Hum Cancelling P90!

Our recommended Pickup Height is 1/8" on the Bass Side and 1/16" 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.
Hi, I am looking to replace the pickups in my Yamaha Revstar II Professional with P90s with either of your Hum-Cancelling P90s. My question is, will I be able to retain the 5 way switch and Focus Switch if I swap out the pickups? Thank you very much.

Hey Jacky, if your switch does any coil splitting, no. These pickups cannot be coil split, and it's best to use them with a 3-Way Switch, like a Telecaster. - Tyler
I have a chambered mahogany Warmoth body with a Noiseless P-90 Alnico rod at the neck and a 5% overwound noiseless P-90 at the bridge. In my observation each pickup alone sounds fantastic, but when used together the middle position tone is a little dark for my taste. Maybe the 5% overwound bridge pickup is the culprit??? Would a 5% overwound Alnico rod at the neck pair better with the neck and still give me some good cranked tones? Thanks in adva...

"First off, wow! What a great pickup! If you're looking for something between a P90 and JM style pickup, look no further. I wasn't happy with the Seymour Duncan SP90's which were too dark for my taste. I really prefer JM style pickups and true single coils overall, and was having trouble finding the right fit. I took a chance on these and they definitely hold up. I also have a set of the standard Fralin P90's in a different guitar. I have to say they are both just absolutely excellent. Of course the standard P90's have their own charm. They are a little grittier and have more have that P90 woof to them. These are much closer in sound to a Fender style single coil with added bonus of being hum-cancelling. I really don't know how they do it, but I have yet to be disappointed with a Fralin pickup."
