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.

HC-P90 (HB Cover)


  1. 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!
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Will this fit in a Humbucker Position? Yes. It’s Gibson humbucker sized.
  5. What’s the String Spacing? 49.5mm.
  6. 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.
  7. Wiring Diagrams? Here!


Wound with 43 Gauge Single Poly Nylon and uses Bonded Neodymium Magnets. 500K Pots are recommended with this pickup.

Resistance Readings:

  • -5% Neck: 15K
  • Stock Neck: 15.5K

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

  3. Dave Powlison (verified owner)

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

  4. 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.

  5. Joseph Turano (verified owner)

    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.

  7. Dave Powlison (verified owner)

    Just replaced the stock pickups in my 2011Gibson SG with these. Amazing difference right out of the box. Got rid of the harshness and dramatically improved the dynamics. And they are indeed noiseless. A huge improvement! If you’re thinking about trying these, don’t hesitate–you won’t be disappointed!

  8. Miguel V. (verified owner)

    I exchanged a set of Fralin stock dogear p90’s for no-hums with a -5% in the neck and a stock bridge. The original p90’s went into a Casino Coupe with a 50’s harness and sounded tremendous however I wanted to see if the no-hum’s were an improvement. They are indeed slightly darker but if you take a -5% in the neck it compensates for the darkness, as a fully hollow body neck pickup is already dark. These sound tremendous and turned a cheap import guitar into a great guitar. I liked them so much I bought another pair of stock no-hums to put into an SG Standard with a 50’s harness and they also have made that guitar really great. The only hesitance I can see to buy these is price, and so it was for me, but once I heard them in action they completely justified their cost.

  9. John Currin (verified owner)

    Great sounding P90’s. Replaced some dark sounding Humbuckers. Great improvement in tone. Just what I was looking for.

  10. Donnie Crump (verified owner)

    Awesome P-90

    I had high hopes for this pickup and they were met. It sounds similar to a humbucker but with more clarity. Tuned down muted low E string sounds thunderous. Cleans are chimey but warm. Works great with heavy Doom voiced fuzz pedals.

  11. Jacob Lundgren (verified owner)

    Amazing pickups! Put a standard set in my ’90s Epiphone Dot Deluxe and it rips now! Very articulate and clear but they bite when my Princeton Reverb is cranked. My first P90s so I can’t compare to any others but I am very satisfied. My first purchase from Fralin and I don’t think it will be my last.

  12. Bryan Foy (verified owner)

    These pickups are awesome. I put a pair in my Fender reissue 72 Telecaster Deluxe to replace the original, muddy wide range humbuckers that the guitar came with. Along with the pickups, I also changed the wiring. Replaced the original pots with new 500K pots and .22 Orange Drop caps. This guitar now sounds amazing! Clean and articulate with a rich full sound and, of course, because they are P90s the break up great when you push them! The other big thing is little to no hum! I barely used my 72 Deluxe before, but now it’s the main guitar I use in my band. Buy them, you won’t regret it!

  13. Mike Vissiere (verified owner)

    Fantastic P90’s!
    I absolutely love these pickups! Great dynamics when using your volume, clean up extremely well, and just bite when turned all the way up! Love em…

  14. Javier Miqueleiz (verified owner)

    Articulated. Powerful. Growling.
    Replacing the stock humbuckers from a 2007 Standard LP, never quite bonded with them because they were muddy but the guitar was a dream to play.
    This Fralins were a breath of fresh air. The clean tones are insane (and with 0 noise) and reacts very good to ODs, Fuzzes and distortion pedals.

    I will buy again.

  15. Kevin Blank (verified owner)

    Just what I needed
    I wanted something just a little fat and rare in the bridge position. This fit the bill perfectly without adding noise to my rig.

  16. Lawrence Thompson

    My build morphed into no hum P-90s at neck and bridge, std wind, and split blade blues in the middle with a std 5 way switch. I am so in love. I’ve got blues, strat and tele twang covered in one instrument (or at least variations of those tones that please my ear)! Custom pickguard & wood parts from Warmoth.

    Poor Man’s 1968 Goldtop Build
    My first Gibson was a ’68 Goldtop, and after deciding to reacquire one without dropping $5k on a reissue, I built one that solved it’s two main issues, weight and hum. The body is a 2013 Standard Goldtop, and after researching pickups for quite some time (mostly with YouTube comparisons) I selected a set of standard Fralin Hum Canceling P90’s. Couldn’t be happier! To me it sounded more authentic than the Kinmans, and in person it’s just beautiful. There is the crispness and clarity that is associated with single coils without the hum. The tone is absolutely authentic, with a minor caveat that ‘real’ P90’s can be a little muddy on the low end, and these are not. But that may have more to do with the limited pickup height adjustability. I can’t say this guitar sounds *exactly* like my old ’68, which was traded away 30 years ago, but it’s a joy to play and has become my #1. Highly recommended!

  18. Lawrence Thompson (verified owner)

    I put one of these in the neck position of my strat and am blown away by the rich tone and volume. Awesome. I still have split blade vintage in the middle and split blade SHO at the bridge. The middle is on the same 500K ohm vol pot but has a 470K ohm resistor to ground. Bridge is same tie in as middle and has tons of quack which I seldom use. I see a future bridge change out soon. 5 way selector pos 2 is really dark. I’ll adjust that a bit also but it is usable as is. P90 on neck is a massive keeper!

    Hum-Cancelling P-90s are Magical
    I replaced my pickups in my Les Paul Standard with the Fralin Hum-Cancelling sized p-90s and they sound amazing!!!

  20. Donald Loeffler (verified owner)

    Nice Pickup!
    I ordered a single P-90 Hum-cancelling Pickup for my Gibson ES-175 in the neck position. It sounds about 98% accurate BUT NO HUM! I worked with Tyler who was excellent on the recommendation and very knowledgeable. I think Fralin should etch the back of the pickup for authenticity. Shipping and handling could be less expensive as well. Great product and Great service overall.

  21. philcorsi (verified owner)

    This hum-cancelling P-90 is truly extraordinary. I couldn’t be any happier with the tone from it. Just as Luke told me when we spoke on the phone, it is a bit warmer than a regular P-90, but it retains that beautiful articulation I was looking for. I got it for the neck position on my Epiphone Dot, and it’s a match made in Heaven paired with a Fralin Pure PAF in the bridge. Many thanks to all the good folks at Fralin for a job well done. Absolutely fantastic pickups! And absolutely fantastic customer service, from start to finish!

  22. John Thompson (verified owner)

    Amazing sound! I love these pickups!!! I have put them in my Les Paul and a Guitar that I built and can not get enough them.

  23. Graham Coulter (verified owner)

    Amazing pickup and the best customer service. I ordered a p90 as a replacement for a humbucker in the neck position of a 70s SG. It is the most dynamic pickup I’ve ever played, and is extremely versatile. I play everything from straight ahead jazz to fuzzed out psychedelic and it never missed a beat. It is a great pedal platform but sound excellent clean as well. If you’re looking for the clarity and shimmer of single-coils with the stature and fullness of a PAF, this is the ideal pickup.

    Tyler, who makes all the noiseless p90s, gave me a call to check if the pedal had gotten to me and how I was liking it. I have nothing but love for this company and have been recommending this product to anyone who will listen.

    Do yourself a favour and go Fralin.

  24. Joan Andrews (verified owner)

    I just installed these in a Gibson Les Paul Special Plus. This guitar was calling out for P90’s. They are perfect. Would love to have these in a semi hollow or a jazz box thats fitted with humbuckers. I am a fan of the clarity. I am more of a plug-and-play type. These sound great thru all my amps, from a ADF 100 down to my tweeds and blackstars. I am familar with your modern humbuckers. Have them in a Gibson 54 Custom. It was routed years ago. I am sure these would sound great in that guitar. Hell ,thinking of putting these P90’s in my V and explorer. Big fan of these pickups. And another thing, no hum! Thanks again. Hope this helps. Cheers.

  25. Tony Todd (verified owner)

    Paradise achieved. Beautiful polished nickel finish. The neck pickup with the Alnico Rods is beautiful when squeaky clean Great tone and definition. It also drives well. It combines very well with the bridge pickup. The bridge pickup remains fatter and delivers good clean sounds. It comes into its own when driving the amp I love the pair of them fabulous tone and NO NOISE !!!!

  26. Kai Korteila (verified owner)

    Killer Jazz Tone! The Hum-Canceling P-90 replaced the original humbucker on my Godin 5th Avenue Composer.
    The original Godin pickup was actually very good, but I wanted something with a punchier attack and more clarity without compromising warmth and depth too much. And that’s exactly what I got. Couldn’t be happier!

  27. Joe Clayton (verified owner)

    Pickup sounds gorgeous, partners really well with the Bareknuckle I have in the bridge. Shipped out internationally in great time.

  28. Tom Meitzner

    Put a set in my Les Paul special.These things rock.Really accept gain well,roll back the volume and they really clean up nice.Finally after changing pickups a few times on this guitar I found just what I was looking for.

  29. Jameson Edwards (verified owner)

    Everything I was looking for! These pickups are absolutely fantastic! I put them in an American Pro Tele Deluxe and they lived up to everything I’d read, with clear wound strings, meaty high strings, growl, nuance, articulation and no hum. Plus the Fralin staff was super helpful and friendly (and patient with me as I debated between a few of their pickups). Highly recommended!

  30. Ken Peoples (verified owner)

    Sounds are very good, kind of between a P90 and humbucker. I replaced the PAFs in my B&G semi hollow and they are a perfect match.

  31. Jaein Park (verified owner)

    Really Love It! I was a Humbucker lover and it’s my first P90 so I cannot compare other P90 pickups. Anyway, I love it. No hum, sounds somewhere between single and humbucker pickups, fascinating.

  32. Dan E. (verified owner)

    Bought a set of the hum cancelling P-90 in Humbucker case, love them! I installed them in an Ibanez Gio with double Humbuckers that I picked up at an auction . I now have a kick ass guitar! These pickups are everything they say and more. Quiet, no noise, nice and clean, and down and biting dirty too!

  33. Rich B

    I’ve had these pickups in my Schecter PT for 6 months now and they absolutely kill! I play in a cover band. We play a little bit of everything. My two main guitars are an EBMM Cutlass, and the Schecter PT. I use the Cutlass (BTW, a GREAT Strat alternative) for more of the country and pop stuff. I wanted the PT to have a “Classic Blues / Rock” feel, that could definitely rock out, but It was important that the pickups have articulation. Long story short, I came across these and I couldn’t be happier. They sound great through gain or distortion, roll off the volume and they clean up nicely, but most importantly, they remain articulate. Think of the 70’s rock song “All Right Now”, by the band “Free” and the opening chord riff. It really nails that. Then for songs that require a little more gain, they still sound great, without losing definition. I’m 53 and have owned a ton of guitars and pickups and I think these might be my favorite pickups. Also, they are dead silent. Well done, Lindy!

  34. Eric Bellingham (verified owner)

    The hum-cancelling P90 pickup in the humbucker case is awesome. Thank you very much. Really quiet.

    I now realise I have been after this particular sound for 40 years. Inspired by Steve Hunter and Dick Wagner on Lou Reed’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Animal album.

    I modified a telecaster by putting a humbucker in between the bridge and neck pickups but it tended to over-ride the bridge pickup.

    I was trying to get fat bottoms and mids but with bright edgy tops.

    This pickup does exactly that. Amazing with lots distortion.

    Thanks for your help.

    I had been looking for the right pickups for my Les Paul for a long time and these finally hit the spot. I had P94s, but found them to be a bit too brittle sounding. Just like Lindy described, these noiseless P90s are darker than single coils, but they have a great unique feel that is like a single coil that is just fuller than they normally are, or a humbucker that is just a bit too sweet to be a humbucker. They are great. I can play great sweet clean tones, or flip to the bridge for great articulate high gain tones!

  36. Adam (verified owner)

    Ordered a set of these as a gift for my wife. She had been looking to replace the stock Humbuckers in her 2006 Gibson SG.
    Not only did these fit perfectly, they look incredible and sound exquisite. Responds to subtle playing dynamics. Very balanced sound, a nice punch when paired with a Twin Reverb. Compared to the original pick-ups, when bathed in fuzz and reverb these retain a high level of articulation while sounding completely unhinged. Needless to say she couldn’t be happier with these pick-ups. And from a customer service standpoint, Lindy and his team were an absolute pleasure to work with, taking the time to address my questions and ensure these made it time for the holidays.
