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.
Listen to our friend Mike Hermans play our Hum Cancelling P90, only in a soapbar format.
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.
The phase of this pickup is reversible with 2-Conductor With Shield lead.

I am looking to get a noiseless dogear set for my Epiphone Casino. I was thinking short neck (5% underwound)/standard bridge (5% overwound). Would this work for a balanced set? Also, do you also recommend a shim for the bridge to bring it closer to the strings?

Hey Dan, if you purchase a "Stock" set, the neck is already -10% from the bridge, and is very balanced. Any additional underwinding / overwinding will throw this a bit out of balance. For example, if you overwind the bridge, I recommend overwinding the Neck as well to keep things in balance. I absolutely recommend checking your pickup height at the bridge and determine if you need a shim. Read more

Hey Tom, this pickup can be rotated in the guitar. Just make sure the "D" pole is the highest pole. On Left-Handed guitars, the pickups' lead should come out of the treble side (under the high E string). - Tyler
What's your opinion on 250k pots vs. 500k pots for p90's? I'm having a harness made, and they say 500k pots are the ones to use. I want to put the hum cancelling soapbars on a new Melody Maker E1, w. 43mm nut width, so I assume standard sizing. If the bridge spacing is 52.5 then is the soapbox pole distance still 52 or 50?

Hey Steve, this is a good question. I'm not sure how your guitar is routed , or what's underneath the pickups. Traditionally, soapbars are mounted directly into a piece of wood under the pickup, screwed into the body. We also have a "Pickguard Mount" for the Soapbar. Lastly, if Humbuckers will work for this guitar, we have this model in a Humbucker housing...Read more

I’m sorry in advance if I’m over thinking this. But on your Tips page it says most P90‘s &?humbucker‘s the lead comes out of the treble side. But then below that it says neck humbucker‘s, the lead comes out the Bass side. I have a set of your noiseless p90s and I just want to be sure that on the neck pick up if the lead comes out of the treble side or the bass side?

Hey Greg, it is quite confusing. We make our pickups the same way - with the lead coming out of the Treble side. On Les Pauls and the like, sometimes the pickup needs to be turned around and the lead comes out of the bass side. It's fine either way, just check the pole piece stagger - we pre-set the stagger, and if the pickup needs to be turned around, you might need to adjust it a bit.

I have a guitar made by a company here in the UK called Vintage a mid-range guitar that came with 3 stacked ceramic P90's , when I hit the gain on the amp it hums bad, you need a noise gate, it's a great guitar well built, solid Alder body, and Rosewood Maple Neck , I am looking to upgrade these P90's I don't mind going with a decent set of pups, what can you recommend for a guitar that requires 3 P90's without the hum,

I'm going to buy a set of the Hum-cancelling p90s but have a few questions. I have a Jazzmaster with a Mastery bridge. I was wondering: * What outputs do you recommend?

Hey Travis, we recommend the Stock Output for the set, and F-Spacing at the Bridge. This will optimize the tone for your guitar and setup.

Hey Ray, if you're looking to upgrade the Neck, choose 50mm. If you're looking to upgrade the bridge, use 52mm. I would choose Gibson Lead if you have two Volumes and two Tones.

Hey Christophe, you can certainly use our 5% underwind to achive a lower-output, cleaner tone on our Hum Cancelling P90s. As far as magnets go, we have Neodymium, which we feel gives the most traditional P90 tone. We also offer Alnico 6, which gives a much softer and jazzier tone.

Hey Larry, as long as the string spacing is 50mm, you can interchange the covers. All Soapbar covers are relatively standardized across the industry.

Reviews we worked hard for, and are proud of.
"I absolutely LOVE my no hum P90's!! I ordered a full set with the neck being a standard wind and the bridge with the +5% wind. I put them in my 57 custom shop reissue and they are absolutely perfect!! The extra grind on the +5 is exactly what I wanted, without it being overbearing. Tone for days and the whole point being NO HUM. Completely quiet! There are so many tones in these pickups just by riding your volume control, as well as the out of phase tones in the middle position. It's a joy to keep finding useable and truly fantastic tones with each move of the volume dial!!! I cannot recommend these enough as they have become my absolute go to P90 pickup!!"
"When I ordered my 5% overwound P90s, I knew they would be great. However when I received them, installed them in my TMG Scarlett Nigel Hendroff Signature, plugged it in, and hit the first chord, the only word that describes the level of Greatness is Magic. Pure Magic. Completely changed the tone pallet of the guitar, and instantly improved it all around. These aren’t the only Fralin pickups I have, and they certainly won’t be the last. Thanks so much."
"Love my new Hum Canceling P90’s I’ve always loved the sound of P90 pickups. I’ve never liked the noise that you have to put up with. These are game changers for me. The neck pickup has that buttery warmth that I love. The bridge pickup has that nasty bite with the clarity for leads that I adore. All of this, without the noisy distraction, means I couldn’t be happier!"
"P90's you need to get Mr. Fralin was kind enough to make time for me. We spoke of the guitar type and wiring. After discussing the request. We came to an agreement on the overall construction. Hard to put into several sentences how dynamic and tonal flexible these P90's are. I've owned many types of pickups. Noiseless, Vintage, Singles, Hums, Active... I have to say these are a whole other monster...and I mean a tone Monster. You can get almost any tone you are looking for out of a P90 type pickup when you learn to adjust the height and poll pieces for your guitar. Just amazing. Thank you Mr. Fralin"
"Mind Blown! Awesome Pickup for my 2019 LP Junior! I previously had it stock, then with a humbucker, and now this Fralin Hum-Cancelling P90 [I did the +5% version]. This one really goes when you turn it up, esp with an overdrive. Even better with a MK II tonebender Fuzz! But it still cleans up nicely when you roll off the volume--makes for a smooth, sweet, and creamy "Blue Sky" by ABB. It is the Classic P90 sound but uplifted. Indeed the 60-cycle hum is eliminated!! I will admit that I was a bit skeptical, but definitely the best thing I could do for my Junior. Worth every penny. Thank you Fralin Team! 6 stars!"
"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!!"
"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!!"
