A Lindy Fralin original! The Hum-Cancelling P-90® has the big midrange and the bright wound string sound of the original P-90’s with none of the hum. Made with Lindy’s 2-coil design, the Fralin Hum-Cancelling P-90 sounds thicker and darker than our Fralin P-90’s.

THE FRALIN HUM-CANCELLING P-90®. NOISELESS, FEARLESS.

We all love the sound of a screaming P-90 Pickup. It’s been used on countless records and countless guitarists rely on it to give them that aggressive tone they’re after. It’s Rock & Roll, Jazz, R&B, Funk, Blues, and Country all rolled into one. At Fralin Pickups, our Hum-Cancelling P-90 Replacements are given a healthy dose of USA-Made Parts and wound by hand, and given a second coil to deliver the tone you love, with no hum.

FEATURES:

  • Adjustable Pole Pieces for Fine-Tuning Single String Balance
  • Neodymium Bar Magnets for a Smooth Tone
  • Lindy Fralin 2-Coil Design For Noiseless Performance
  • Wound with 43-Gauge Wire to specification
  • USA-Made Magnets and Wire.

SOUND:

Fralin Stock Set of Hum-Cancelling P-90 Replacements are like our regular Fralin P-90’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, fat midrange in-between. Our Hum-Cancelling P-90’s still have that undeniable thick Single-Coil tone that you love, only with no hum at all. Single notes have a punchy, thick sonic footprint and have great sustain. Chords break up nicely with a slight compression and great note separation. The Output is almost identical to our Stock P-90’s, and they sound extremely similar – just a little thicker in the midrange. Fralin Hum-Cancelling P-90 Replacements offer undeniable clarity and definition while remaining strong, fat, thick, and punchy. We can also make this pickup in a AlNiCo rod version for a smoother tone. Contact us for details.


Choosing the pickup:

We have a few output options:

Our Stock Set is a Stock bridge and -10% Neck. This is our most popular set. To customize this: 

  • Each additional 5% added (+5%) will give you 5% more mids, and 5% less highs. It’s thicker, with more output. Higher output pickups have more compression and are beefier sounding
  • Each 5% subtracted (-5%) will clean up the pickup nicely, giving it a clearer, more open sound. This will add 5% more highs and take away some midrange for a nice “scooped” sound. Lower output pickups have more articulation and are generally more dynamic than higher output pickups.
  • We customize our pickups from our Stock Set. If you choose (-5%) on the NECK position, you will be getting a -15% Neck.

CHOOSING THE LEAD:

  1. Gibson® Braided Shielded: Most popular. Use this if you have no special requirements, or if buying a set.
  2. 2-Conductor With Shield: Use this if you have Phase Reverse (?) needs. Choose this lead if buying one pickup.

    I got this as a replacement to upgrade my Hamer Special double cut a few months ago. The tone, balance, and sensitivity is great! It took just the slightest tweak of the pole heights to make it sound to my taste. I get that “whistling scream” from my high strings on solos to the barely audible notes making the best dynamic range ever. Thanks Lindy!

    Lindy provides the best customer service I have ever encountered! I had an unique need for my guitar and Lindy worked with me directly to get the sound I wanted. I have no bridge pick up, only a neck and middle position. I was looking for a brighter middle position pickup so it would sound more like a bridge position pickup. The first P90 he sent was not as bright as i needed for this application so he made me a custom pick up specifically to meet my needs. I ended up with a Neck P90 under wound 5% with alnico rods and this pick up has exactly the sound I needed. I couldn’t be happier with my purchase!

    I have just put a set as a replacement on my custom built semihollow guitar and couldn’t do better. So much clarity, sensitivity and definition! Lindy is really one of a few to take time and answer all your questions helping to find the best solution. Thank you Lindy!

    I replaced the p-90 in a PRS SE one. The noise of this pick-up is way quieter but retains the awesome P-90 tone. There is still a little noisy and less gain. But the tone is there!

    Only P90ish pickup I’ll use. I love gain and hate hum so I tried a set of HC soapbars (thanks CME) in my Fender JA-90 Tele. I now play it more than my CS ’58 Les Paul! Today I replaced a stock P90 with a HC dogear on a LP Jr replica and I can do anything from country to metal. I won’t go back. Forward with Fralin!

    I adore the sound I get out of these pickups. I have a redwood and walnut arch top guitar that my father built that needed to be amplified, not just for jazz, but for indie rock, blues, and a little country. I recently bought a bridge no hum p90, and had wonderful very accommodating customer service. Can’t say enough.

    I have a Dean Palomino whose pups went microphonic. I bought the P90 noise cancelling pups and they are awesome. I’ve been playing in bands for 37 years off and on. I have a bunch of guitars with great pups. This guitar, as an arch top jazz body with 3 pups and a Bigsby sounds fantastic. I actually play STP Plush with no squeal on top of Stray Cats, Rolling Stones, Black Crowes, etc. Money well spent!

    If you’re looking for P90’s, look no further. These are, without a doubt the best sounding P90’s out there; bar none. The clarity and punch are astounding! You will not be disappointed. My experience dealing with Lindy and his staff has been phenomenal from start to finish. Absolutely the best! Do yourself a favour; try them out. You will be happy you did.

    I purchased a set of hum cancelling P90’s to install in my new Epiphone 339. The original pickups were not too bad, but I hate hum. After seeing a you tube video I pulled the trigger (bought them through Amazon), and man I am glad I did. They sound just like great single coil P90’s, but zero hum. I have bought many sets of pickups over the years and these have impressed as much or more than any pickup I have ever tried. I give them 10 stars!

  11. Rated 5 out of 5

    Just installed these pickups and I can finally enjoy p90s – without the hum, that is. The description is spot on. A little darker and thicker sounding, but all p90 tone. Of course I had to adjust from a true p90 to these babies, but I adjusted really quick. Best pickups I ever bought! Thanks Lindy!

    These sound way better than the P90s that they replaced in my jazzmaster. Clarity, more bite, and no noise.

  13. Rated 5 out of 5

    Have Lindy’s noiseless P90s on my red ’93 Les Paul Special they brought this guitar back alive from the stock gibson p100s.. They are beautiful pickups & span every style I play from hard rock to country music. And very pedal friendly with no squeal. You can drive them hard. Yes, i know the hum in p90s is part of the deal. I love noisy LP juniors. lol I have Lindys tele pickups & p90s. Can’t go wrong!! Thanks Lindy!! cheers,Benny Landa
