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.

What output do I choose?
Q What output do I choose?A 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.
What lead do I choose?
Q What lead do I choose?A 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.
What’s the tonal difference between this and your Stock P90?
Q What’s the tonal difference between this and your Stock P90?A The Hum Cancelling P90 is slightly louder, darker, and thicker. It’s quicker to break up, and has no hum!
I’m looking to add a set of noiseless p90s in my Les paul deluxe, it doesn’t seem to give me the string spacing option for what is recommended for Gibson. Is this pickup not available in that spacing? Thanks!

You do not need F (Fender) Spacing, and if your guitar requires 49.2mm, as some Gibsons do, 50mm works perfectly for this application.
I purchased a Gretsch 5627 p90 model from guitar center. It has the soap bar style cream p90 pickups. The stock pickup does hum quite a bit. I have a noise gate but it sucks up tone. Which specs would you recommend to replace these?

I have a 9.0k dogear P90 that I want to replace with one of your noiseless P90’s because the 60 cycle hum is driving me bonkers when I dial up the stink on my amp. Which wind would approximate the fat, midrange-y tone of this P90?
Q I have a 9.0k dogear P90 that I want to replace with one of your noiseless P90’s because the 60 c...... Read moreA I would personally go with the +5% output to match up with a 9K P90. Stock Output might cut it as well, as Hum Cancelling P90s tend to be a little more midrange-heavy than their single-coil counterparts. That said, if you mainly play clean, go with the Stock Outputs. If you mainly play dirty or overdriven, go with the +5%.
Hello! I am planning to put a Hum Cancelling P-90 in the Bridge of my Novo Serus to go with the Fralin Firebird (stock wind) in the neck. Which output wind would you recommend and which spacing? Thanks!
Q Hello! I am planning to put a Hum Cancelling P-90 in the Bridge of my Novo Serus to go with the F...... Read moreA I recommend Standard Spacing (49.5mm / 50mm) for the bridge position of a Novo Serus. I would go with the Stock Output as well – they will match really nicely.
I can’t find the dimensions of your noise-canceling p90. I have a single dogear Les paul junior and I have been advised that the channel cut inset is not deep enough for a Seymour Duncan or Kinman p90 noiseless pickup and I would have to rout out the space. Is this the case with your noiseless p90 also?
- Hi, Just wondering about which string spacing I should choose for the hum-canceling P90s. I have a 36mm string spread at the nut and 52.4mm at the bridge. my nut width is 43mm. Thanks, Chris

I am wanting to add a Hum free P90 to the neck position of my next thinline tele build and trying to decide which tele bridge pickup to pair it with. I want it to match the output of my current thinline which has a High Output Split blade neck and SHO split blade bridge. Would the Steel Pole hum free bridge pickup be a good match and should I consider a hotter wind on either pickups?
Q I am wanting to add a Hum free P90 to the neck position of my next thinline tele build and trying...... Read moreA The Split Steel Pole Tele Bridge would be a touch cleaner and brighter than the Hum Cancelling P90. I would recommend going with the -5% Hum Cancelling P90 Neck and a Stock Split Steel Pole Tele Bridge for a compensated tone.

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!!"
