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. Available in a Soapbar, Dogear, and Humbucker, you can rest assured knowing you can get the Fralin P90 tone in any guitar you have.

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

FAQS:

  1. What’s the tonal difference between this and your Stock P90The 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. What’s the String Spacing? 49.5mm.
  5. I don’t see what I’m looking for? We can do some custom work, for sure. However, we’re not tooled-up for certain things, like Nickel Dogear Covers. Contact us if you’re not seeing something you’re looking for.
  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.

    Wow!

    I bought the bridge version of this pickup for a telecaster build I was completing to pair with an Alnico Rod version in the neck position. I was on the fence between this and the Alnico Rod version in the bridge, but ultimately with this one because I didn’t want the bridge pickup to be too bright. It delivered tone in spades, but I found it didn’t have enough top-end for my application. It sounded wonderful, with a very ‘chewy’ midrange and great note definition, but it just wasn’t right for the sound I was trying to achieve. I greatly appreciated the opportunity to exchange it for an alnico rod model, which I will review in the appropriate space. I will absolutely use this model in a future build when I want a more traditional P90 sound.

    My Ideal P90’s
    Let me first say that Lindy, you are a true genius! I got a PRS Korina McCarty Soapbar several years ago, love the guitar (it weighs 6.2 pounds) and it feels so comfortable to play. But, I felt the stock P90’s just didn’t suit my taste. After a lot of research, I decided to give Lindy Fralin Pickups a call and actually got Lindy on the phone. After telling Lindy what I was looking for, he suggested the Hum-Cancelling P90 set. I ordered them and installed them in the McCarty. WOW, it’s like I have a new guitar! The sound is exactly what I was looking for, clear, articulate, crisp. Playing the Hum-Canceling P90 equipped McCarty through my Princeton Reverb is very rewarding with the tone I never thought possible! Thanks, Lindy!!

    I’ll make this simple, these are the best sounding, quietest P90’s I’ve ever heard. Amazing tone, responsiveness, and control. Also, just an incredible team to deal with at Lindy Fralin, from Lindy to everyone there, amazing support and service!

    Hum-canceling overwound P-90: Excellent pickup and sounds great and perfect for my purposes. Great work!

  6. Howland Bickerstaff

    I have a stacked P-90 with a 10% overwind in an old 50’s Gretsch Lap steel. I get more compliments on my tone…I can leave the tone wide open or roll it off a touch to fatten it up a bit…
    I’m about to get a pair with a little underwind in the neck and a little overwind in the bridge to put in a Gibson Blues Hawk. Can’t wait to hear them after they’re installed…

  7. Walter Van Horn (verified owner)

    Love That P90 Hum-Canceling Pickup! I would like you to know how pleased I am with your Hum Canceling P90 pickup. I have my Les Paul Jr. put together and playing. I couldn’t be happier with the sound of the pickup, and NO HUM. Walter (Bill) Van Horn

  8. Dennis Hull (verified owner)

    Amazing as usual!
    Perfect blend of humbucker and single coil tones without the hum! I love these pickups. Very articulate and clear but also nasty at the same time. Beautiful clean tones and classic overdriven tones! I’m a Fralin pickups addict. I am blessed to have 4 great guitars and having Fralins in each of them make them 4 Absolutely Awesome guitars! Thanks to Lindy and the Whole team. Each person is so important and they are all what makes this such a great company!!

  9. Ben Bruton (verified owner)

    So kick ass!!

    Sorry for the rhetoric, but this is the most delicious pickup I’ve ever heard! I installed it in the bridge position. It plays nice with the pre-existing pickups in my guitar. It’s both creamy and snotty at the same time. In other words- not brash at all- it just sings! Thank you!

  10. Roger Redmon (verified owner)

    I’m getting a great sound from my Les Paul Junior. your pickup is clear and clean, even with heavy distortion. I play through a 5150 head and a Marshall 1960 A cab. it sounds great. thanks for the pickup

  11. Dennis Henderson (verified owner)

    Super quiet and great-sounding pickups

    Love them! Great customer service very helpful! Lindy took the time to talk with me and get exactly what I was looking for in some P-90s. I have other Lindy’s pickups in three of my other guitars and there AWESOME in build and sound! Highly recommend any of his pickups to anyone wanting to upgrade their Guitar.

  12. Jason Murphy (verified owner)

    Noiseless perfection! This pickup is awesome! So glad I pulled the trigger on this one!

    I’ve found my Brand!

    My Lindy Fralin single dogear pup went into my New Model LP Junior. I’m working on a particular project that requires the distinct bite of my 59 LPJ but obviously I don’t want to drag out my vintage guitar for a project requiring commuting. So having used various brands of P-90’s I decided to call Lindy Fralin. I told him what I had and what I was looking to accomplish. Couple of weeks later I was installing this hum canceling P-90 that fits like a glove. While I was in there I added an Emerson pre-wired volume/tone module. The magic was immediate, I got that 59 bites and spark and have a new favorite guitar for this project. Compatible with my few pedals. There is no fair comparison to the stock pup and pots I removed. Now I know why Lindy Fralin Pickups are in the top 5. For my money, they are Number One! Thanks Lindy.

    Hum-Cancelling P90 on Gibson Acoustic
    It’s a good pickup, I’m very pleased with the sound. I mounted it on my Gibson Advanced Jumbo so I could get an electric sound on my acoustic guitar. See this thread for the whole story. https://www.acousticguitarforum.com/forums/showthread.php?t=583381

    After being blown away with the Fralin single coils on both my Tele and Strat…and then putting the Fralin PAFs on my Epi 339, I couldn’t wait to swap out the P-90s on a new Epi Les Paul Special TV yellow which just arrived. Wow… Thick, Chunky, and Punchy and best of all NO HUM. Did I say WOW. Makes you want to turn your Amp up and ROCK. Thanks, Lindy and staff for a Great product and Great service.

    Amazing product

    Being a P90 addict, I was in search of a solution to keep the growl of the original P90 without the hum. A quest for the Grail that eventually ended up with Fralin Hum-Cancelling P90. Beyond my wettest dreams, it is an amazing response. My Goldtop has never sounded like this before. No doubt Fralin provides the best product in its category.

  18. Joseph L Basile Jr (verified owner)

    P90 sound without the wicked hum

    I’ve installed the dog ear in an LP style Junior, with a .022 cap. I was blown away by the pure tone. U can fuzz it up with gain, etc. but this pickup, for me sounds incredibly clean. Consider purchasing the shims if u are not sure how n height. They are exact fits. Thanks so much for great craftsmanship.

  19. Edward Reynolds (verified owner)

    Live up to the name!

    I love my new Fralin hum-cancelling P90s. They are as advertised and will not disappoint. I would not hesitate for a moment to put these in your guitar. Lindy Fralin has been able to do this for a living, for a long time, for a reason.

  20. Eric Hanks (verified owner)

    Best P-90 I’ve ever used

    Honestly, these pickups blow the stock Gibson’s out of the water. They are hotter, thicker, and much meaner. And on top of that, they still clean up as a good P-90 should. These have made my Gibson SG Classic my secret weapon. Oh, and the raw nickel finish is very unique and beautiful.

  21. David Van Moorlehem

    I purchased a Noiseless P-90 with stock output from an international online retailer for an inexpensive classic-inspired P-90 guitar that I recently bought. My reasoning was that the pickup would dramatically improve the sound of this budget guitar, while I saved for a high end version of a classic mahogany set-neck guitar. Additionally I factored in that I would likely install the pickup in the better guitar later. This pickup has transformed the sound of the budget guitar. I agree with the many other reviewers that this pickup is a fantastic noiseless rendition. It has the harmonics, touch sensitivity, dynamic range and above all, the magic tone I associate with classic P-90’s. The voicing is superb. I spent the first two days playing match the tone with classic albums that featured killer P-90 tones. Early Aerosmith, Alice Cooper, Slade, Mountain, and Trapeze…this pickup made matching the character of those excellent tones quite easy. Well done Lindy! This pickup absolutely deserves its stellar reputation. And yes it is incredibly quiet!

  22. Fred Coury

    AMAZING! Hi, My name is Fred Coury. I’m a tv composer in LA. Erik Goresh installed noiseless p-90’s in my gold top Les Paul and I’m blown away. I was afraid that I couldn’t use the guitar on my show as it was so noisy. Once your pickups went in, that guitar instantly became my favorite Les Paul in my collection and has been used on every episode since!
    Thanks for making such a great product!!

  23. houstontg (verified owner)

    I have a PRS McCarty, all mahogany (maybe Korina, I’m not sure how to tell the difference). I put a hum cancelling P90 in the bridge spot and a hum cancelling alnico rod P90 in the neck position. The bridge pickup is a bit lower output than the original (Lindy said it would be), but wow I love how they sound. Even besides the hum cancelling part, they really hit the spot. I was concerned about losing the guttural tone that the guitar has, but no worries, these pickups do it justice.

  24. Kenneth Smith (verified owner)

    Wonderful pickup, but they’re not 100% “authentic” P90s

    … which is fine. Now that I know what they are, I’ll use them when appropriate. My reference comparison is Kinman noiseless P90s. The Fralins are more humbucker sounding. More even, uniform frequency response. More compressed, fewer transients, smoother, creamier. Not as articulate, airy, or “hollow” sounding. They are also SIGNIFICANTLY lower output. That being said, I do like them. But I would choose the Fralins for a rock-oriented sound, not a clean or crunch blues sound where picking dynamics are really important. The Fralins are wonderful and are very focused and tight, but they have a smoothness to them. They aren’t a “rude and nasty” pickup. They have a slightly compressed sound that’s really fat – sort of reminds me of the creamy smoothness of Joe Bonamassa or Warren Hayes, but tighter and more focused. Very nice indeed, but without the extreme articulation and openness of a really authentic vintage sound. But don’t get me wrong. They’re STILL light years better than Duncan offerings for example. This is a very versatile pickup. And a lot of people will like it. I’d say most will. Except if you’re looking for true vintage, I’d choose Kinman by a substantial margin. But if authenticity isn’t important, then these are a great option. They have their own thing going and sound unique to me. And their unique sound is a very good thing to my ears.

  25. Gary White

    Great pickups. I couldn’t be happier…I’ve had a lot of trouble with my ’65 Gibson ES-330. When I bought the guitar in 1990 the neck pickup consisted of a Gibson black label humbucker screwed into the nickle dog-ear cover. The bridge was original, but was very quiet and was basically unusable. In ’98 I found a replacement for the neck pickup in a short dog ear. It had a chrome cover that I hated, but it’s what I had to use. I eventually got the same brand to replace the Gibson bridge pickup. The sound was passable I guess, but I was never happy with it. So after many years of barely playing my main guitar I finally found the money to get Fralin replacements. The sound is awesome and I’m finally happy with my guitar. It is finished now, it is in the shape I wanted it in. So very happy with my purchase. Thinking of getting some humbuckers for a Jazz guitar I have. 5 out of 5.

  26. Peter Lees

    I had noise canceling P90’s put in my thin line Guild Newark Collection (ES-125) single coil guitar. There is NO NOISE!!
    They sound fantastic! Thank you ??

  27. Scott Coutant (verified owner)

    They sound so much better than the Gibsons that came in my 56 reissue Les Paul

  28. Tyler Marshall (verified owner)

    No more noise!

    My 2019 Les Paul Jr. is a fantastic guitar but was useless to me in most clubs with bad power due to the p90 hum. This pickup solved that issue for me and the jr. is seeing a ton of stage and studio time. I will be buying more of these for my P90 equipped guitars! Thanks guys!

  29. Vincent Thibault (verified owner)

    I really love my new pickup but I was a little disappointed that I got sent a bridge pickup that was meant to be mounted to the pickguard even if I didn’t need that so I had to poke the screws thru the wax and stuff which wasn’t ideal. Sound-wise pickup is awesome!!

  30. Dean Kirby (verified owner)

    Just what I needed! I put this in a Les Paul copy that I really like. It is the third pick up I have tried. The original (bought the guitar used) was some sort of aftermarket, not sure the maker. I put in a Duncan, too much noise. This one did the trick and sounds awesome! Thanks

  31. Alan Grobert (verified owner)

    Sound as advertised, hum gone. A real humdinger, as it were. Installed on a Godin 5th Ave.

  32. Sean McCloskey (verified owner)

    Put a +%5 overwound bridge and regular neck in my PRS SE 277 Semi-hollow Baritone and was completely blown away by how good the guitar sounds. The clean and dirty tones are just amazing!

    Overwound Bridge

    Sounds phenomenal, no hum, easy to install, wouldn’t hesitate to order again

  34. Keola Donaghy

    I recently built a Gibson LP Double Cutaway using a body from Precision Guitar Works, and a pair of Fralin Noiseless P-90s with RS Guitarworks wiring harness. It took about four months beginning to end, but my Lord, it is the most amazing sounding instrument I’ve ever played. It’s my first P90-equipped guitar, and the sparkle/chime, body and tightness of the tone is beyond belief. I really did not expect the flexibility that this configuration was going to give me – I thought was really going to be just a niche guitar in my toolbox, but now envision so much more. This is my third Fralin installation (I have Pure PAFs in an Ibanez AS73 and Split Blades in my Tele), and have been progressively happier with each install. Mahalo Lindy and crew!!

    Best Hum Cancelling P90 Pickups
    Def the best pickups out on the market. Big game changer! If you need some really great quality pickups don’t hesitate to get these bad boys, as well as any other pickups made by Fralin!
    Love it. Keep up the great job!

    Awesome pickup. True to a P90 without the hum! Love it.

  37. Robert Bain (verified owner)

    Warmth! Plenty of output. Much warmer than the 5% over P90. Nice detail.

  38. Tommy Hall (verified owner)

    Quiet as a mouse until you want to drive them and then they growl like a P90 should. These are the 9th set of Fralin pickups I have bought and installed in my new builds. Love each one. Great pickups and great service.

  39. John Mulligan

    Like them a lot. My P90s are in a telecaster with a 4-way switch. The bridge 2C series 2C and parallel positions sound great. Neck position sounds a little muddy and I’m working on that. Playing through a deluxe reverb clone with this setup is really good.

  40. Robert Rock (verified owner)

    Finally!!! A no-hum P-90 that sounds like a great sounding P-90… it’s a must-have. So Rad! Aloha, Bob Rock!!

  41. Gary Davis (verified owner)

    Great P90 Tone! These pickups deliver that great P90 tone of the past but without the hum! Another great design by Lindy Fralin!

  42. Michael Miller (verified owner)

    Amazing upgrade! Hello Lindy, Swapping out the original Gibson P-90 with your hum canceling one has taken my Les Paul Jr to a whole new level. It is now completely silent so I can focus on the nuances of the tone of the pickup. It sounds warmer, richer and grittier than ever before! I can’t thank you enough for the improvement in the tone your pickup has brought to my guitar! See you again, hopefully soon.

  43. James Collodoro (verified owner)

    Awesome pickup
    True to a P90 without the hum! Love it.

  44. Martin Liter King

    Welk, i bought the humless P90 Dogear for to try to build a cheap and good guitar which can take some serious beating during live shows.
    So i bought a brand new 230,- (!!!) Harley Benton Junior Double cut and slapoed in this P90. With shocking results!
    I chose the guitar because ist is all mahony with a set neck. With the Fralin PU ist is my best sounding guitar now and that‘s hillarious as i own an der Gibson 94 Dc, an Gibson 61 Reissue SG and an Duesenberg Dragster which i love to death!
    Success? Hell yes!!! This won‘t be the last Fralin for me to get, thats for sure!
    Trank you!!!

  45. Mike Ginesi

    Just finished installing a +5% neck hum canceling P90 in my 1955 Gibson es 225 – single pickup guitar.
    The original gibson pickup had a cracked top and was not sounding quite right… Probably need to get it repaired.
    And middle position on this guitar is not quite neck or bridge… New electronics and all [so the original stays original and in a box]
    Used 500k for vol and 250k for tone with 22 cap… So +5% – Wow it sounds marvelous …
    can be clear and throaty – gritty to chimey and jazzy and mellow. Makes the ’55 sound like dynamite!
    Thanks Lindy!

    Holy P90! This pickup is beyond godliness! A whole new level has been reached then far surpassed!

  47. Anthony Gallucci (verified owner)

    Absolutely unreal! The luthier that put them in for me fell in love with them. He called the bridge pickup “Filthy!” in the best way possible. The 2019 Les Paul I put them just came alive. Kudos!

    I received a set of these Hum Canceling P90’s in my Novo Serus J a few months ago. Honestly, at first …. I was really kinda bummed that Dennis and crew had stopped using the Amalfitano P90’s in their guitars as I was addicted to them. They were the best P90’s that I had ever owned/played in my short electric guitar playing career(8 years). I figured worst case scenario, I could sell the Fralin’s and contact Jerry to get a set of his made to go in the Novo if I ended up not liking them as much …… BUT ….. I don’t see that EVER happening. These Hum Canceling P90’s flat out ROCK and are dead silent!!! That was my only complaint ever about P90’s was the noise and how Lindy managed to pull off a silent P90 that still sounds like and reacts like a P90 is suppose to is beyond me …. but I am very grateful he did! This has turned into my #1 electric and honestly the first guitar I’ve owned that I don’t see myself changing a single thing out electronic wise(which is normally the first thing I do to a guitar). So, a big THANK YOU goes out to all at the Fralin company!!! Job well done!!!

    All I can say is WOW, what a difference. I have a 2015 Gibson Les Paul Special DC with P-90’s stock. I thought it sounded pretty decent. I purchased the hum canceling p-90’s stock. Like I said WOW I pushed my pedal board to the side couldn’t believe how much better it sounded. Blown away. So worth what I paid. Great customer service. Top shelf

    Lindy has nailed it again! These sound incredible.

  51. Raleigh Smith (verified owner)

    This is everything I wanted!
    I’m probably not the traditional Fralin customer. I play punk with lots of gain, but I care about my tone. This pickup ticks all of the boxes. I don’t have the annoying feedback and buzz from my old P-90. I also got the over wind so the breakup is much sooner meaning I don’t have to run as much gain. It is still a P-90, so I cut through the mix like I’m playing a Telecaster through a Twin Reverb on 10. Thanks so much for the amazing product. I will be getting one of your PAF’s next.

  52. James Reed

    Lindy thank you for this pickup. I have your pickups in all my guitars and these P90s might just be my favorite. I don’t know what your secret is but to anyone that hasn’t heard: image the best sounding P90 guitar from one your of favorite albums and then remove the hum, that’s it. I replaced the stock P90s in a Gibson SG with these about a year ago and I still can’t put the guitar down. Every time I play it, I get a big smile on my face from the sound coming out of these pickups. As with all Fralin pickups, there is no sweet spot on your volume or tone controls, the sweet spot is everywhere. You can’t get a bad sound out these pickups. If you’re thinking about trying these pickups, just do it. You won’t regret it. One recommendation: try these out with a treble cut and bass cut tone circuit like on a G&L or Reverend.

    Can I curse in a review? They f***ing rock.

  54. Mark Poole (verified owner)

    Overall, good!

    While I feel maybe a little something was lost from switching from the classic “noisy ” P90 that was in my Les Paul before. I am overall pleased. The small compromise in sound is not enough to make me want to go back to the old ones. It sounds very close. When I a/b it with a normal Gibson PAF the difference is huge. More bite, clarity and versatile tone. Equally suited for “Tele” style country picking, heavier rock, rockabilly, and blues. These pickups allow me to be all over the map stylistically without switching guitars and the best part is they are as quiet as a PAF.

    Finally, a Hum-Cancelling P90 that rocks!! All the character of a vintage P90, with some mid-range push and an open vintage top end…love it!!!

  56. Diego Russo (verified owner)

    Wow!!
    This P90 with the 5% overwound spec(noise canceling) is just ridiculous!! Placed it in my 2011 TV Yellow Jr and now that guitar blows away most of my higher end LPs!! Can I just say WOW all over again?!?

  57. Emery Bernolak (verified owner)

    Sounds amazing.

    I put these Lindy Fralin hum cancelling P90s in a 1963 Gibson SG and they sound great! Very happy with them. Thank you.

    Hum-Cancelling P90 “No 60 Cycle Hum”d
    I could not be any happier with my Hum-Cancelling P90s!!! I have never owned P90s that did not hum. Some worse that others. I can turn my amp up and there is no hum at all. That is great….but don’t forget why we like the P90s….that punchy growl is there. They sound awesome!

    My Epiphone Casino’s 50th birthday present..
    Lindy, your amazing hum-obliterating P90 was the present I gave to my very best guitar friend in the world. In 1968 my father gave me a lovely Epiphone Casino, a single-pickup E230T. It has been with me now for 50 years and plays like the day I got her. But the original P-90 was, lets say, noisy. To honor her 50th year I selected your hum-cancelling P-90 as the pickup to replace the original and was incredibly happy with the results. I has all the depth and bite of the original and is deadly quiet. It also enhances the “acoustic” sound of the Casino’s open body. I play big band jazz and it’s a now a very nice alternative to my Ibanez ’85 AR-350 (post-lawsuit ES-175 copy). You have given new life to my very most special guitar and I can’t thank you enough. I’d be glad to send a photo and a little video if you are interested. Mark Loveless, Portland, OR.

    They are great. ?

  61. Ralph Okunewitch (verified owner)

    This pickup has an excellent P90 tone with none of the noise. True single coil P90’s are probably the noisiest pickups ever designed, but not these Fralin noiseless P90’s… they have all of the “goodness”, punch, and grind of a great single coil P90, but they are dead silent. I have a stock wind neck and a +5% wind bridge Fralin noise canceling P90 in a Guild Bluesbird, and that guitar went from “nice” to REALLY astounding!! A VERY highly recommended pickup!!

  62. Steven Dick (verified owner)

    Put these on a Les Paul Special and made it a better guitar. No more buzz, great tone. Just what I was looking for.

  63. Chad Ostlund (verified owner)

    Awesome, just awesome
    I love P90s but hate the hum. I’m not sure how Lindy does it, but these sound like an awesome P90 without the hum. I only wish I had more guitars routed for a P90.

  64. Kevin O’Rear

    Ive tried a lot of different pickups–Gibson’s, Dimarzio’s, Seymour Duncan, Lollar’s – but this pickup is by far my favorite. I’m extremely pleased with it and will be purchasing more. Glad I tried it! Has a crystal clear sound, tight distortion, and very well balanced. Highly recommend.

  65. Sean Jenkins

    Fralin hum cancelling P-90s are my favorite pickups. Bought them for a backup guitar which became my go-to instrument once they were put in. By far the clearest most responsive low E sound I’ve had. Even on the neck pickup it doesn’t get mushy. Plus they are hum cancelling which is really important as several places I play have neon signs, questionable electric, etc. I can use all pickup positions now wherever I play and get great P-90 tone. If you’re looking for a hum cancelling pickup that has more beef than a single coil and more snap/articulation than a humbucker give these a try.

  66. Chris Bucheit (verified owner)

    This pickup sounds great – great sounding P90!

  67. Michael Newman (verified owner)

    Amazing! Same mid range snarl but with no noise. I had confidence these would be what I neeed but noiseless since I had purchased a set of hum cancelling Jazzmaster pickups before.

  68. Pekka Kortelainen (verified owner)

    Finally I have P90 with no hum and with very nice sound. My guitar is one on a kind Heritage Custom Shop Golden Eagle Byrdland, originally with Lollars. Thanks Lindy!

  69. Les Hill (verified owner)

    Listen with your ears not with your eyes! I own a 59 Gibson P90 and the Fralin Hum Cancelling is the nearest to it that I have found (and I have tried a lot). Highly recomended.

  70. Robert Manes (verified owner)

    Fat, full, and quiet! Wow, just wow. I made the right choice.

  71. Manoog Hadeshian (verified owner)

    Hum cancelling P90’s…love ‘em! Put these pups in my LPS and the sound great! Very warm and great sustain. Much quieter than the Gibson stock P90’s. Very little high end loss and Glorious midrange!

  72. David Campbell (verified owner)

    Great Replacement. I bought your hum-cancelling P90 to replace the original pickup in my 1965 Gibson ES-125T. The pickup was an exact fit. I love the tone and the lack of hum.

  73. Michael Hamilton (verified owner)

    Articulate, docile, and ferocious! All in one!
    I replaced the stock pu that came in my Reverend Sensei Jr. with this, as the original pu sounded pretty good but was very microphonic. I am super happy with the results. I can nail just about any sound I want, as the Sensei has a treble roll off knob and a bass roll off knob. It is easy to get a clean hi-fi sound with rich solid bass and the right amount of mids’ and hi’s. Equally easy to find is great crunch by running the volume up a bit. Pinch harmonics pop right out. Just a great all round pickup for a guitar with only one. Thanks guys!

  74. Gregory Livengood (verified owner)

    Best P-90 on the Market! I am absolutely thrilled with the set I purchased. They replaced three Gibson stock P-90s and the difference is stunning. The attack is sharper, the body is fuller, and, of course, the noise is kept to a minimum. I’d like to add that I called to inquire about the best way to replace a set of three and Lindy himself answered the question. I just can’t say enough good things.

  75. Kevin Ross (verified owner)

    Put this pickup in my circa 1963 Gibson ES-125T. It sounds great, no noise and it fit perfectly. This guitar used to sit in the case and only get played maybe once a year, now I am playing it all the time. I am very very pleased! I play mostly Jazz and Blues and this pickup is perfect for this. The original P90 had an unuseable 60 cycle hum. I highly recommend this pickup to anyone that can’t stand the 60 cycle hum. Thank you Lindy Fralin!

  76. David Coffey (verified owner)

    Great, robust P-90 classic Sounds. Thank you

  77. Paul Stebner (verified owner)

    Always great! Every pickup I encounter from Lindy Fralin is top quality with a classic tone and customary sweetness that Lindy is known for. A professional’s top choice!

  78. Anthoni Rondini (verified owner)

    Love the hum cancelling soapbars. These made such a huge difference in my LP Special that I cannot put the guitar down. I haven’t touched a Strat single coil or Les Paul humbucker since!

  79. Ken Jannsen (verified owner)

    Zero hum, and I meant ZERO. These pickups are playing well with my Vox ac15, Analog Outfitters Sarge, Vintage BF; Vibro Champ, Delux Reverb, Princeton, and Bassman, as well as a custom made Harvard Tweed reproduction. Some guitar, pickup, amp combinations work better than others. My Les Paul with Fralin hum canceling P90’s sound great into any amp. And no more twisting, and turning around to minimize noise.

  80. Don Lessnau (verified owner)

    Wow! Gorgeous. Like listening to liquid butter. Just had these put in my Gibson ES-390. Unreal. The Gibson had the MHS P 90’s. Nice but really annoying hum. Tyler was extremely helpful and Lindy, too. I know where I’ll be getting any future PUP’s. These are fantastic and the people are too.

  81. Robert Miller (verified owner)

    The solution to my P90 dilemma!
    I’ve used most of the P90’s out there but could never play them live due to the hum. These are the perfect solution. The tone is there and unmistakable P90 tone, bite and growl…minus the hum!

  82. Mitch Dungy (verified owner)

    Best P90 I’ve ever used! It’s just as quiet as a humbucker!

  83. Gary D. Norris

    Gary D. Norris – professional luthier, player, songwriter January 27, 2018
    The P90 humcancelling pickups I recently installed for a customer are the best P90s I’ve heard. Now I have to get a set for a few of my guitars!

  84. Jim Magnus

    Wow – totally blown away with your Hum Cancelling P90’s w/Alnico non adjustable poles. I put a pair into a 2004 Les Paul GOTM along with new pots, volume kits and your “special” caps now the sound is even more articulate, full and singing than I could have remotely anticipated.
    I am playing through a Mesa Boogie LoneStar Special, which I consider a dark toned amp, and these PU’s really brighten things up and are able to create classic Chicago blues break-up to heavy rock P90 grind overdrive AND still clean-up when turned down. Getting down to the non-distorted clean range things are just chimey full bodied. The pots and caps allow things to clean up at any volume and the tone controls now really work without any tone suck. You have a customer for life!! I have finally found the versatility I have been looking for…….

  85. Pat Liddell (verified owner)

    I replaced the stock P90 in my ‘98 Epiphone LP Jr. with Lindy’s hum free model. I could not have been happier with the results. My satisfaction was magnified when I received a call at home from the man himself, asking me for clarification on details of my order to ensure complete satisfaction. Amazing customer service! (I actually thought it was one of my bandmates punking me on the phone! Fortunately I didn’t embarrass myself!) As for the product, the hum-free is indeed dead quiet, but overwhelmingly retains the sonic and tonal character of the original – very responsive and touch sensitive! My first Fralin purchase but certainly will not be my last!

  86. Benny Landa

    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

  87. Keith Pepperoni (verified owner)

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

  88. Jay Domingo

    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!

  89. Ken Cheshier

    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!

  90. Phil Bardoul (verified owner)

    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.

  91. James Gomez (verified owner)

    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!

  92. Kyle Moore (verified owner)

    Wow well worth the money ! I just upgraded to these hum canceling P-90 set .
    They are quiet when they need to be rich sounding .
    Beautiful cleans to all the way growling dirty ..
    I just put these is a USA Artist Custom quilt ..
    This is a incredible set perfectly balanced great for all I do , only sad thing is I’ll never put down my guitar again !

  93. Tom cadaret (verified owner)

    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.

  94. Dave LiCari (verified owner)

    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!

  95. Chris Clemente (verified owner)

    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!

  96. Artur Ostry (verified owner)

    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!

  97. Justin Heneghan (verified owner)

    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!
    – Justin

    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!
