All P90, No Hum.

Want to learn more about our Hum-Cancelling P90? Here's all the information you'll need:

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.

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.

  8. Hi there, Can anyone tell me if there is much tonal difference between the HUM-CANCELLING P90 WITH ALNICO RODS and the Alnico Noiseless P90 HUMBUCKER? I was going to get the first one but if I can replace my current neck humbucker with the Alnico Noiseless P90 HUMBUCKER, it would save me having to potentially rout the guitar and fabricate a new pickguard to incorporate the HUM-CANCELLING P90 WITH ALNICO RODS. If you could please let me know when ... Read more

    I have just put a dog ear hum-cancelling P90 in my 2001 Les Paul Junior. Beautifully made and fitted without any mods to the guitar at all.
    Far better sounding pup than the expensive hand made P90 that was in there before (which had been a significant upgrade over the stock pup. Clearer and gutsier at the same time.
    Less hum and noise than any of my other humbucker equipped guitars. Finally I can use the guitar anywhere without worry.
    May well be the best pup of any kind ever made.

    I had been contemplating upgrading the P90s in my Goldtop Deluxe for a number of years fo these Hum-Cancelling P90s. I absolutely could not be more pleased with my decision. My only regret is not pulling the trigger sooner. I dropped in a stock set and the clarity is perfect..with no hum. Thank you Lindy et al.

  3. Dan Hovey
    Verified Buyer

    I really like the P-90s that came in my Les Paul Special. Had no strong desire to change them tone-wise, but I needed to get rid of the noise. When the Fralin Hum-cancelling P-90s were installed, I noticed a little difference in the treble. The Fralin had a little bit rounder top end. I usually roll off the tone controls to about 8. Don’t do that with the Hum-Cancelling Fralins. Having gigged with these pickups a number of times I have discovered some wonderful qualities; a little extra something in the mids or lower-mids, and a little extra sustain. They sound great to me now, and NO HUM! My Special is now a go anywhere, do any gig guitar.

  4. Ross Bliss
    Verified Buyer

    These P90s deliver everything you’d want in a P90 – without the hum! If anything they have more clarity than the stock Fender P90s I started with. They’re kind of an ideal solution if you want to eliminate hum but retain the authentic sound of a P90

  5. Brian Gerbs
    Verified Buyer

    I cannot convey strongly enough how these pickups are fantastic!!! I put them into a ’56 Epiphone LP reissue for my blues band and have been playing them at weekly gigs for the past 4 months.

    They provide the right amount of clarity AND bite they are perfect. Each pickup is voiced in such a way that they drastically change the sound of the band. The neck pickup (stock) is thick and responsive, the bridge pickup (wound -5%) is jagged and forceful, AND the middle position has a lovely balanced tone for rhythm work. Oh, let’s not forget, they are hum-cancelling!!!

    I couldn’t be happier. Cheers Lindy and his team.
