Overview

The Fralin Hum Cancelling P90 is one of the best-selling models we make, and it’s easy to see why. Genuine P90 tone and dead-quiet performance? What’s not to love?

Whether you play Rock, Jazz, Country, R&B, or Funk, you will undoubtedly stand out in the mix with the pronounced pick attack, crystal-clear lows, and round highs. And the best part? Zero hum, with Humbucker looks! Available in multiple cover options, you can rest assured knowing you can get the Fralin P90 tone in any guitar you have, with the looks you desire.

Sound

There are a few ways to cancel out the hum in a pickup. Some manufacturers feature a “stacked” coil design, which we believe leads to a lifeless and dull tone that lacks character. Lindy’s Hum Cancelling P90 features a Side-by-side coil design that is not stacked and attains a more accurate P90 tone that actually sounds like a P90.

Expect a vintage-voiced P90 tone, with a slightly thicker midrange and rounder highs. This pickup will undoubtedly push your amp hard and provide that snarly midrange and top-end “bark” we have come to expect from a P90. Suitable for many music styles, this pickup can scream and clean up nicely for jazz or blues.

Going even further, you can customize your tone by selecting Overwound and Underwound options. By overwinding a pickup, the tone gets thicker, darker, and dirtier. By underwinding a pickup, the pickup gets clearer and more articulate.

Speaking of versatility, are you looking for a jazzier tone? We can use Alnico 6 Magnets to taper the highs even more and offer you a softer sound. Are you searching for a cleaner and more Fender sparkle? Check out our Alnico Rod Version that features Alnico Rods for a Fender-type sparkle.

Our manufacturing process allows us to achieve unparalleled quality control.

Hum-Cancelling P90s consists of 100% USA-Made parts, including a precision injection mold, USA-Made Steel Screws, and Neodymium magnets. 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, using our proprietary “Sectioning” technique, which gives the pickup a sweet, clear tone. Finally, we wax-pot the pickup to prevent microphonics and preserve the pickup for years to come.

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.

Gibson Braided Lead:

    Hey David, yes, we ship worldwide for a flat fee of $50 USD. The lead time will be about 2-3 weeks. - Tyler

    We believe this pickup will sound great for a Pedal Steel! Expect hum-free performance, and a P90 Growl and thickness. - Tyler

  4. I have a left overs: a Fralin hum cancelling P90 (neck humbucker) pickup and an S Duncan pearly gates bridge pickup. The outputs seem similar at 8.2 and 8.3. Contemplating installing them in an older H 535. Are there any issues with this idea. Also I like the poles on the bridge pickup closer to the middle as I think there is more string movement away from the bridge. Am I making this up. Thanks

    Hey Bruce, as it turns out, it's really tough to tell! Install them and see how it works. As long as you have Multiple Leads on one pickup, you shouldn't have any phase issues. - Tyler

  6. Hi, with a twangmaster in the neck would the noiseless p90 in the bridge work ok together. Do you have any combinations you think work best / balance together? I have a set of humbucker sized noiseless p90 and was thinking of a little more clean on the neck while retaining the bridge of the noiseless. Cheers

    Hey Shane, if you have a guitar with two volume pots (like a Les Paul), you can make this selection work. Keep in mind that Twangmasters sound best on 250K pots. That said, you can definitely make this selection work with a Noiseless Alnico P90 as this model sounds like a Twangmaster on 500K pots. If you're looking for a clean-sounding P90 tone, the P-92 is whe... Read more

  8. thinking about adding some P90 sound to one of my LesPauls. I have a 2016 LP Traditional with a RS Guitar works 50's wiring kit. .015mF cap/neck and .022mF on the bridge. 500 ohm pots all around. I was thinking hum cancelling P90's stock set. I run a Dr Z maz 18 amp and my style is rock/blues with a KOT overdrive/boost. Don't go into distortion land too much. Would appreciate your thoughts. Specifically the capacitor values.

    Hey Keith, the Hum Cancelling P90s will certainly fit the bill here. Expect a balanced set that can push your amp when you need to and also clean up nicely. I always recommend 0.02mfd for a capacitor value - it is the most versatile one.

    I love these pickups. I put them in a T-style partscaster (replacing a set of Duncan P-Rails) and a Yamaha RS620, and they’re damn near perfect to my ears. They cover everything from sweet articulate cleans to grinding metal adjacency, and they’re dead quiet. 5% overwind on the bridge, and .0022mfd tone cap (that’s not an extra zero – it’s one step up from the magic cap, and I’m digging it).

  2. Nathan Foley

    Buy them.
