Sound

Our Hum Cancelling P90s for Humbucker-equipped guitars are like our regular Fralin P90’s, only thicker, darker, and with no hum. You can expect a thick, darker, round bottom-end, and a rounder, less aggressive top-end, with a clear, snarly midrange in-between. Our Hum-Canceling P90 still has that undeniable thick Single-Coil tone that you love, only with no hum at all.

Single notes have a punchy, compressed 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 P90’s, and they sound incredibly similar – just a little thicker in the midrange. These pickups offer undeniable clarity and definition while remaining strong, fat, thick, and punchy. Need a jazzier tone? We can use Alnico 6 Magnets. Want a cleaner and more Fender sparkle? Check out our Alnico Rod Version.

Our manufacturing process allows us to achieve unparalleled quality control. Hum-Cancelling P90s consists of a precision injection mold and USA-Made Steel Screws. We use aggressive USA-Made Neodymium magnets to make this model scream. Each bobbin is carefully inspected and cleaned before winding.

We wind each pickup by hand, one at a time. Each pickup is wound 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.

FAQs

  • What’s the tonal difference between this and your Stock P90? The Hum-Cancelling P90 is slightly louder, darker, and thicker. It’s quicker to break up, and has no hum!
  • What output do I choose? Our most popular set is the Stock Neck & Bridge. Going with a +5% output from Stock will thicken and darken the tone. Going with a -5% will clean up and reduce the midrange, making it sound more articulate and clear.
  • What lead do I choose? This 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 respective volume pot. 2-Conductor: Go with this lead if buying a Single, or installing into a Fender-style instrument.
  • Will this fit in a Humbucker Position? Yes. It’s Gibson humbucker sized.
  • What’s the String Spacing? 49.5mm.
  • 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 the highest fret.

    Great single pickup! The pickup has that classic p90 vibe with little addition of Fralin p.a.f pickup sound texture (which I really like). Pretty unique sounding pickup I’m very satisfied

    Hum Cancelling P90: I could not be happier!

    Hum canceling P-90 humbucker

    I’ve waited a few weeks to review these pickups as there haven’t been many gigs for me to really check them out due to COVID. After a nice duo gig this past weekend I’m very happy to report back with a big thumbs up. As Lindy says their clarity is front and center. Chords are crystal clear and single notes speak nicely without any high end shrill. At first, I thought the midrange bump was too prominent but I quickly changed that assessment. I think more jazz players should consider these pickups when shopping for a cleaner, clearer tone. Highly recommended

    Amazing sound!

    I’ve just changed my stock Gibson Burstbuckers 61 to Lindy Fralin’s hum-canceling p90 humbuckers. I didn’t expect such a dramatic difference! Clean sound is bright and even glassy, but when I hit overdrive pedal my Les Paul Standard turned to rage and squealing beast! Such a tone! Thank you guys for this piece of art under raw nickel plates!

    P90 goodness with Hum-cancelling

    Just added 2 hum-canceling p90 to a flat-top Les Paul and they sound great. There is a huge range of tones/ variability across tone & volume controls. I have a single alnico p90 (no noise) in another guitar – love that as well, but it’s different. Both pickups really perform and differ as described on the website.

    Awesome pickups. Huge improvement in the sound of my SG! Love it!

  10. Matthew Kendall (verified owner)

    It’s only been a few days now since I had my pickups installed. I did a P90 (neck) and Modern PAF (bridge) combo into my Gibson ES-335. It’s the best I’ve ever heard this guitar. The P90 brings out this thick and clear punch that I never had in my guitar before. It works perfect for some Bluesy playing or kicking in some distortion and going full Punk, or even keeping it clean and playing some Ska. You won’t go wrong with this purchase. You can’t go wrong with any of Lindy’s pickups (IMHO). Well worth the money.

    Upgrade for Eastman AR371-wow!

    Made a dramatic difference in the sound to my ears. The guitar sounded very good with the stock pickup, so while I expected an improvement I wasn’t expecting this. The combination of greater clarity with a noticeable added warmth in all registers. I can’t overstate how pleased I am. Thank you, Lindy, and a very special thanks to Tyler who steered me towards this and patiently answered all my questions.

    Amazing PUs!!! Clear and articulate but with a tremendous body and heft.
