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.

  1. Lloyd Warren Verified Buyer

    Just got an under-wound P90 Hum cancelling for the neck position of an Eastman SB57 and a Pure P.A.F in the bridge. This guitar came alive! I’ve never liked the neck position on Les Paul’s, but this Hum Cancelling P90 is amazing. Great clarity and bite. Now I’m using both positions, equally. The 2 pickups work great together. Even with the amp cranked and an overdrive pedal on, you hit a chord and hear every note sing. HIGHLY recommend.

  2. Andy Hidber Verified Buyer

    We’ve upgraded a Epi LP for a client with a set of these P90, they sound fantstic. Our customer is overwhelmed with the sonic result, turning a guitar he almost never played into his favorite instrument!

    Thank you!
    Andy from Magneton Guitars

  3. John Lannon Verified Buyer

    Everything I hoped for.
    I had my tech replace the stock Shawbucker pickups in my Telecaster Deluxe with Fralin hum-cancelling humbucker-sized P90s, and th esound is amazing; the clarity, depth, and range of tones, accented by silent operation, has made this guitar the go-to holy grail of my collection.

  4. Jeffrey Scales Verified Buyer

    A Delightful Pickup. A really nice upgrade to an inexpensive lap steel. Delivery was right on schedule!

  5. Jeffrey Duncan Verified Buyer

    Dead quiet
    I’m a picky tone snob and I have Fralins in two of my guitars. I have the big single in the neck of my strat and a pair of the noiseless p90’s in my TMG Ronnie Scott… I have a love for tone and a hatred of 60 cycle hum and Lindy has solved that equation. Plus if you call for advice the man himself might answer the phone

  6. Jeffrey LeDoux

    Great p90 tone! I have had a lot of p90’s; vintage gibson from the 50’s thru 2020, lollars, kinman, and noiseless and rwrp sets. these bring the tone and leave the noise behind. perfect pickups.

  7. Baksa Gimm Verified Buyer

    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

  8. Larry Atkins Verified Buyer

    Hum Cancelling P90: I could not be happier!

  9. Jay Azzolina Verified Buyer

    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

  10. Eugene Nikitin Verified Buyer

    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!

  11. Lafayette Herring Verified Buyer

    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.

  14. Glen Kimura Verified Buyer

    My second purchase and not my last!!! Love the quality, customer service, and the TONE!!! Thank you!!!

  15. Dave Powlison Verified Buyer

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

  16. Matthew Kendall Verified Buyer

    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.

  17. Joseph Turano Verified Buyer

    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.

  18. Eyal Nahum Verified Buyer

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