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.

Hey Guillermo, you need the following options:
- Type: Short Dogear
- Cover color of choice
- Lead Type: Gibson Braided Lead
You shouldn't need to modify any other parts of the guitar to make these work. They will be drop-in replacements. That said, check our measurements of our new pickups against your old pickups - they will certainly be different.

Hey Noah, if you have the Soapbar mounting ring on your Mini Humbucker, our soapbar will fit just fine - it's a standard Gibson-sized Soapbar.

Reviews we worked hard for, and are proud of.
Wow. I bought a set of these a few months ago to upgrade a Squier Paranormal Baritone Cabronita. Great tone. Really clear, bright highs, but the mids and especially the low end are amazing. Highly recommended.
Harmonically rich, 3-D sound. Outstanding.
Ordered a Hum-Cancel, -5% under wind P90 for the neck of a tele. Gorgeous vintage sound, and does not over power the bridge at all. Completely noiseless even with high gain. I don’t feel I compromised tone for noiseless at all. I plan to order more of these for other guitars.
I’m a studio guy in Nashville. Dropped one of these in the bridge of a double cut and it sounds just like the factory pickup but without the hum. Very satisfied!
Very happy with these.
An LPSpecial is now quieter (pretty much silent/no hum or noise) than a pair of LP with humbuckers.
LPSpecial with stock P90’s was nearly un-useable at any volume or standing position.
The tone is wonderful as well and the advice/recommendations from Fralin were above and beyond.
These aren’t P90s. They are pokey and percussive humbuckers. And, that’s…. OK! Get them underwound, and you have an extremely versatile set of pickups.
