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.

89 Genuine Reviews for Hum-Cancelling P90 – Humbucker
First set of noiseless P90’s.
Put them in my core 08 PRS Mira and it brought this guitar to a new level. Great pickups.
I’ve since ordered 2 sets of humbucker hum canceling pick ups for my GiB 335 and my 59 R Standard GiB. And P90 pick ups for my 59 R Gold Top… Hope this lets you know how pleased I am with this product.. Very quiet even at high gain settings.. and a very identifiable tone that sets these pic ups apart from the rest…. I’m a very happy camper..Thanks !?? ?
These things are great! Brought my Les Paul to life.
These pick ups are just stunning. I spent a great deal of time listening to and researching various P90’s before deciding on the Fralins. They just sounded the best. Thank you for producing such an amazing product.
I wanted to replace the stock HB’s in a recent purchase 2003 CS-336. The stock PUs were just fine but I wanted a soap-bar kind-a sound ( I had a ’51 LP in the 80’s and what a great sound!). The folks don there in Richmond VA were really patient with all my questions and they steered me to these pickups. TY!. These Hum cncl’ng P-90’s are soooo sweet, I have 4 really nice solid body guitars but this is now my No1 electric guitar! I get a warm feeling inside just thinking about the sound I can now produce… : -)
The Fralin hum cancelling 5% overwound P90 pickups are absolutely perfect!
From clean crisp tones, to something a little more gritty. Accompanied with my favourite OD pedal and a Vox AC30… it’s a match made in heaven!
I got a StewMac LP kit for $225 and built it useing better quality electronic parts. The P/Us that came with the kit were decent sounding, however I was unable to make the strings all the same volume no matter how I adjusted them. So I needed to buy a better set. I had heard several fellow gitar players using P 90s and liked their tone. I bought the Hum cancelling/ drop-in set. Easy peasey install. I am very pleased with the fat midrange these make and the overall tone. Other players that play this knock off make me offers on this git. I’ve used Lindys P/Us in 3 of my gits and have installed them in several other players gits. Always very good comments. In this world of “make it fast n cheap, then thro em away in 10 yrs.” your P/Us make all my instruments family heirlooms to will to someone for another lifetime of beautiful tone git playing.
I am very pleased with these pickups. If you like P90s, you’ll love these! They can be crystal clear and chimey or get dirty when you dig in. They take gain surprisingly well even though they don’t seem as “hot” volume-wise as some other pickups I have. AND, they’re quiet as a church mouse.
I like to vary how I equip my guitars to keep things interesting. I don’t know that I will buy another set of these particular pickups (even though I love them) but I will most certainly buy more Fralin pickups in the future.
Fralin pickups are fantastic. I am Israeli and unfortunately I used the second set I purchased for the first time to play my country’s national anthem in honor of the victims of hamas terrorism.
