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

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?

Whether you play Rock, Jazz, Country, R&B, or Funk, you will undoubtedly stand out in the mix with the pronounced pick attack, crystal-clear lows, and round highs. And the best part? Zero hum.

  • USA-made Neodymium Magnets for aggressive tone and output
  • Compensated Bridge for even volume across all pickups
  • Adjustable USA-Made Steel Pole pieces for fine-tuning string balance

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.

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.

    I’ve been a huge supporter of your pickups for years and these P90’s are some of the best pickups I have ever used!

    A friend of mine, from Seattle, recommended these pick ups to me for a little project I was looking to complete. I love P90s but sometimes the noise can be a bit overwhelming. These hum free P90s are absolutely great! They can be clean and articulate, but if you jump on them and dig in you’ll be rewarded with some glorious grit. Well done Lindy and many thanks to my friend Mark Riley for bringing these pick ups to my attention.

    I just received my P90 Stock pic-ups and dropped them in my GT 1959R. Oh!!! man!!! I was expecting a pretty good sound from them- BUT WOW.. they absolutely took my GT to the highest level possible in my book— great sound – tone- sustain- grit- and even smooth jazz texture tone..quiet as ever!. Just wanted to say thanks! I’m ordering my second set for my other Gibson work horse.. No turning back now… thanks guys.. ??

    I can’t even believe this thing. I swapped it from a single pickup Les Paul junior and the difference is dramatic. Chewy, thick, tons of harmonic content… it just sings. Dead quiet as well! Cannot recommend this pickup enough.

  7. Greg Henderson

    Verified Purchase

    I had no idea that these P90’s would be as quiet as humbuckers ….and still sound like a P90 I ordered the overwound 5% for the neck and bridge …I kinda wish I had ordered just the stock output for the neck and wish they had a little stronger bridge but …the sound is so much better than the ones that came in this guitar originally from Gibson and I tried some Kent Armstrong noiseless P90s and the quality and clarity of the sound was no where close to the Fralins …easy install as well on the Fralins and just an overall great set of pickups …I look forward to playing this guitar out at my gig Friday night !!!

    Lindy Hum-cancelling P90 in neck position in the 1959 ES125 sounds real fine remembering hollow body carecteristiks ,and now with jumbo frets went from Toy to instument

    LOVE THIS PICKUP ! STILL HAS THE P90 CHARACTER AND IT ALLOWED ME TO USE HIGHER GAIN PEDALS WHEN REQUIRED LIVE WITH OUT THE SQUEAL AND NOISE …

    I had the Humbucker version of this and was looking for an excuse to get a set of these. When I found the right guitar to drop these into, they didn’t disappoint again. Amazing tone, dynamics and just a great overall sound!

    After purchasing a MIC Epiphone Casino a few months ago and loving the guitar but not the electronics I decided to gut it. I am a 62 years old playing for over 50 years with 27 guitars from 14 different brands. I have built or customized numerous Fenders. I’ve used Seymour Duncan pups in my builds and originally gravitated towards SD Antiquity P90s for the Casino. Luckily for me they don’t come in chrome which was what came out of the Epi. After a ton of research I decided on your hum-cancelling P90( stock wind) along with a Toneman 50s wiring harness and Tonepros bridge. After I completed the swap and setup I have a very hard time putting this guitar down! Thanks for making pickups that inspire and amaze me!! Way to go!!

    Fantastic pickups! I got a beautiful Eastman gold top that came with P90s. Took me a while to get used to the P90 tone, but grew to love them…the noise, not so much. Louder than my Strats’ single coil noise. Since ALL my other guitars have Fralins, I got a set of these hum cancelling P90s. That did it. They sound AWESOME! The same P90 tone and none of the noise. I can’t put this guitar down, now. As always, the team was helpful. Fralin are my go-to for all my guitars.

  13. Snackie Hillman

    Lindy was incredibly helpful and went out of his way to make sure he had all the information necessary to make the right pickup for my guitar. The end result…AMAZING! Thank you, Sir!

  14. Cole V

    Verified Purchase

    Unbelievably good. I replaced the regular p-90 with this one since I like distortion and that amplifies noise. This is so quiet. I have a humbucker in the bridge (incredible combination by the way), and they have about the same noise floor. The sound is so juicy and warm. I cannot sing these praises enough.
    One thing to note, the polarity of the pull pieces was reversed from the classic Fralin P-90 I replaced. I assumed this meant I would need to reverse the leads so that my guitar stayed in phase…. but then I was out of phase. So, my assumption is that the wind direction is opposite, so the phase is actually the same for both pickups.
    Hopefully this helps others with their install.

    Many moons ago , I had a 1969 SG with P-90’s and loved the sound of that guitar . Unfortunately, I didn’t love the HUM that came along with them, and sold it . I’ve been chasing that sound ever since. ( I have a large stable of guitars ) I just recently decided to give the Fralin Noiseless P-90’s a try and installed them in a custom S-style guitar I built ! To say I was immediately blown away by how phenomenal they sound would be a huge understatement ! And not a whisper of hum at all ! These are amazing pickups and dealing with Lindy and the folks at Fralin was a total pleasure !

    Excellent P90 pickup ! Humbucker type silence in a P90 is music to my ears. I can stomp on my old Rat`s and not worry about the world exploding. Still sounds like it retains all P90 DNA !

  17. David Tubens

    The perfect solution in place of the standard P90 single coil. I had an original 1968 Gibson LP gold top with the P90’s way back in 1970 as my first LP. Being young & dumb, I never noticed the hum they used to make. Having many LP’s after that, Gibson came out with the identical model (The Crown Headstock) from their reissue custom shop & of coarse being nostalgic, I had to get one. Well after playing so many Gibby’s with humbuckers, this hum noise drove me crazy & I actually thought about getting rid of it. Then curiosity got the best of me. I researched P90 humbucker & low & behold Lindy Fralin popped up!! God created this holy man just for me lol. They sound great if not better than the originals. I didn’t lose any tone or quality & best of all without the hum!!
    I got the std P90 in the neck & the 5% over wound in the bridge & for me it’s the perfect combo!!!

    I bought the P90 soap bar noiseless pickups for a custom build guitar I’m making from scratch. I did a lot of research before I decided on them. I own all the top of the line guitars which all have nice voices but I can’t say any of them gave me the wow sound I was looking for. I had high expectations waiting the three weeks for my Lindy Fralin’s to arrive. When I tuned up and played them they totally blew me away. A wow is underestimating them. They are simply amazing. The neck pickup tone is fat and rich. The bridge pickup is everything you could dream of for your solos and the two pickups together, well you just have to experience this yourself but they leave me breathless. I wired them with the blender potentiometer which gives additional tone options. Highly recommended. Really wish I had found these 20 years ago!

    These are exactly what I was looking for in my SG Classic! definitely the P90 character with no noise! They sound great clean to mid breakup as you would expect from a good P90 and higher gain sounds are punchy and articulate without the hum interfering with the tone.
