Overview

We all love the sound of a P-90 Pickup. You can find traditional P90 “Scream” on countless records. Many guitarists rely on a P90 to give them that aggressive, versatile tone. It’s Rock & Roll, Jazz, R&B, Funk, Blues, and Country all rolled into one. The only problem with the P90 is the hum – and we’ve taken care of that problem for you. Our hum cancelling P90 replacements give you all P90 tone, without the hum. Join countless guitarists and discover why our Hum-Cancelling P90 was our best-selling pickup of 2017 and 2018.

Sound

Fralin Stock Set of Hum Cancelling P90 Replacements are like our regular Fralin P90’s, only thicker, darker, and with no hum. You can expect a thick, darker, round bottom-end, and a rounder, less aggressive top-end, with a clear, fat midrange in-between. Our Hum Cancelling P 90 still has that undeniable thick single-coil tone that you love, only with no hum at all. Single notes have a punchy, compressed sonic footprint and have great sustain. Chords break up nicely with slight compression and excellent note separation.

The Output is almost identical to our Stock P-90’s, and they sound incredibly similar – just a little thicker in the midrange. Fralin hum-canceling P-90 Replacements offer undeniable clarity and definition while remaining strong, fat, thick, and punchy. Need a jazzier tone? We can use Alnico 6 Magnets. Want a cleaner and more Fender sparkle? Check out our Alnico Rod Version.

Our manufacturing process allows us to achieve unparalleled quality control. Hum-Cancelling P90s consists of a precision injection mold and USA-Made Steel Screws. 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. Each pickup is wound using our proprietary “Sectioning” technique. This gives the pickup a sweet, clear tone. Finally, we wax-pot the pickup to preserve the pickup and prevent microphonics.

FAQs

FAQS:

  1. What’s the tonal difference between this and your Stock P90? The 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.

    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.

  2. 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.

    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.

  4. 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!
