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.
Listen to our friend Mike Hermans play our Hum Cancelling P90, only in a soapbar format. Same guts, different looks.
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.

I have a semi hollow musicman axis hard tail). I would love to have your p90 Humbucker shaped pickups in it but that guitar has a number of parameters that I am not sure a bespoke order can address: 1) requires short legs 2) requires the triangular ears (dimarzio) 3) is mounted directly and therefore has a rather shallow cavity Is there anything we could do here ?

I'm excited to put a set of these "p-90"s in a 2003 ES-336 I'm trickin'out. I haven't had a guitar w/P-90's since the '80's - see below. Unless I'm mistaken and he was talking about standard HB's, my friend Martin said I want "RWRP" leads. Please advise, THX! Stuff you don't need to know but might find amusing (an old-man-glory-day-story). I had a '52 Les Paul and even though it always hummed along - even between songs - I LOVED the the way it PL...

Hey Fred, you can go with Gibson lead actually - and since these pickups are hum-cancelling by default, you don't need any RW / RP - they will cancel hum in all positions.
I have an Epiphone SG with Humbuckers installed and would like to replace them with P90s and I was wondering if these would fit inside the hole, I'm unsure if they're too small or fit perfectly

Hey Tony, our Hum Cancelling P90 is a standard Gibson Humbucker size, it will fit perfectly.

Hey TJ, as it turns out, we are only able to make these in 50mm string spacing.
I recently bought these pickups and currently having them installed in the bridge and neck. My guitar has a coil-splitting push pull knob feature. Now that I have hum-cancelling P90's, what will happen when I activate the knob?

Hey Sam, if nothing is hooked up to the Push Pull switch, nothing will happen. These pickups do not feature a coil-splitting ability - they are one continuous coil without any "tap".

Reviews we worked hard for, and are proud of.
Pickup sounds gorgeous, partners really well with the Bareknuckle I have in the bridge. Shipped out internationally in great time.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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!
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!
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’ll be Back”
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!
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.
