All P90, No Hum.

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

Hum-Cancelling P90 FEATURES:

The Fralin Hum Cancelling P90 is one of the best-selling models we make, and it’s easy to see why. Genuine P90 tone and dead-quiet performance? What’s not to love?

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.

    Hey Rob, yes, if your guitar has a particular "brightness" that you'd like to remove, the Hum Cancelling P90 features a thicker tone that will help tame that. Other than that, our pickup is completely hum-cancelling, so any additional noise the pickup picks up will be cancelled out.

  1. Tyler Raddant
    Verified Buyer

    This was exactly what I needed! I play a Reverend Double Agent which is a great guitar and now having both pickups be hum-canceling really makes it my go-to guitar for everything.

  2. Alain Jouvenat
    Verified Buyer

    I love these Hum Canceling P90!
    Following Jon’s advice from Fralin, my luthier installed the P90 set with 500k pots and a .22 capacitor. After this installation he told me that he was really impressed by the sound, the balance, the dynamics, the precision and the definition of these P90s. Only superlatives.
    And the fact that these P90s don’t take up more space than standard P90s is really an advantage.

    And personally, I think like him. I rediscovered my very good Saint Blues Juke Joint Bluesmaster guitar. It’s now an excellent guitar, and it’s the one I play most often, very inspiring. And even pushing the amp and the Overdrive pedal, no significant hiss. Impressive!

    In summary, I can say that for a Mahogany body, a Mahogany neck and a Rosewood fingerboard, so Les Paul type, it’s really absolutely recommendable P90s. Impossible to be disappointed. I said.

    Far exceeded expectations. For a little background, I got the overwound pickup and put it in a 68 SG tuned to drop A. The clarity is stunning. The growl is real. And when I roll back the volume, it’s beautiful. I run through a Mesa 50 caliber plus, and this setup is just perfect at blending grit and clarity. Should also mention that when playing leads, there is zero ice pick. Recommend for all p90 fans.

  4. Jeff Bishop
    Verified Buyer

    I put a pair of hum cancelling p-90’s in my ‘67 es-330 along with a new harness (want to keep the original intact)
    I didn’t think I could love this guitar any more than I did, but I was wrong! It sounds amazing and is totally noiseless.
    I also want to thank Lindy for personally calling me to help me figure out what the pickups I took out of there were. One had been replaced and was a poor match.
    I couldn’t be happier with Lindy’s Pickups
    Thank you!

  5. Ben L.
    Verified Buyer

    Ordered the noiseless p90’s a while ago to put them into a LP special tribute, had to replace the PCB in the guitar to put the pickups in (didn’t bother me at all to get rid of that cheap PCB setup) these p90’s have improved everything about this guitar, love fralin pickups, put some blues specials in a telecaster a while back and same for that guitar too, just improved everything about it. If you are looking to replace pickups in any guitar I would highly recommend anything by fralin. Excellent work five stars!

  6. Paul Scholle
    Verified Buyer

    I recently acquired a 2012 Gibson SG Junior. I loved everything about the guitar, especially the sound of the stock P-90 which was extremely rich and clear, yet punchy in the mid-range. However, I was really bothered by the 60-cycle hum. I ordered the Fralin hum-cancelling P-90 and specified the standard winding (neither over- nor under-wound) because I figured it would sound the closest to the stock pick-up. In fact, when it was installed, it sounded EXACTLY like the original but without the hum. I could not have been happier. I wholeheartedly recommend this pick-up.

  7. David Cowan
    Verified Buyer

    The Fralin Hum Cancelling P90 is the best sounding pickup I have ever heard or played. From this point onwards, I will only be playing guitars equipped with it.

  8. Bryan

    Bought the -5 underwound noiseless P-90 for the neck position on my PRS and along with a PAF in the bridge (from another vendor) the guitar (which I’ve been looking over 5 years for a solution) has become exactly what I wanted it to be. PAF in the bridge, open sounding neck pickup with no noise…can’t put it down. Went from last in line to first. Thank you Fralin. Its rare when you buy something and think…nailed it. But yep…this did the trick. Get the -5 on the neck if you want to get rid of the dark and lifeless pickups that come in guitars sometimes.
