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.

Can I get a HUM-CANCELLING P90 with 1" pole pieces? I'm working on a J160e style guitar and would like to use your HUM-CANCELLING P90 pickup. This is an acoustic guitar and the pole piece screws have to go through the top of the guitar (much thicker than a P90 cover).

Hello, previous customer here. I'm very happy with your "Hum-Cancelling P90 in Humbucker Cover -Set - stock" (the description on the invoice) that I put in a maple capped Les Paul. I also have an AXL Bulldog LP Jr clone with a Fralin dogear P90 that I love. But in some of the bars we play at, I wouldn't mind a noiseless P90 instead. Do you know which one would be closest to the one they shipped in the AXL Bulldog? I guess my choices would be stoc...

This pickup plus pots & cap were an amazingly huge improvement in a Loar thin line hollow body neck position. High end sound on a mediocre guitar. These guys really know what they’re doing. Thanks for the great tone!
I fitted a +5% hum-cancelling bridge P90 to my SG Special and I love the sound of it (P90 without the hum!), although it is now not quite as loud as the neck P90, which is also from Lindy F.
These pickups have transformed my Casino. It had sat in its case for years, unloved. Now it feels like a brand new guitar. Can’t recommend them enough.
the perfect neck pickup for my collings
290 more clarity than lollar p90 plus the re noiseless great service they are 200 percent dedicated to quality and customer service.
All I can say is I’m so happy with the P90 I put in a 1959 Les paul Jr. The desciption of the pick up is spot on, No more hum! This pick up is outstanding.
I am new to P90 but I have been a tone nerd for 35 years. Played many P90 guitars, but never owned one. Now I do. Based on reviews I went with this pick up. And I am very very happy I did. It sounds amazing. Lots of clarity but still with this wonderful P90 punch. I have spend some time to adjust the hight and polepieces a bit, but specially learned to work with both the volume and tone control. They respond so well to both, and you can get a lot of tons out of it. The real magic is that its musical and inspiring. Great great pick ups – and a huge bonus is hat they er hum free – and they really are. No noise, just pure beautiful tone, that can behave very nicely and turn in to a rock monster if you ask them. Total respect to Fralin for developing these pick ups.
I got one of these to replace the stock P90 in the neck position of my Reverend Double Agent OG, and I adore it! It sounds absolutely killer, and I am really happy with it. This pickup has that P90 tone, and is noiseless to boot. It doesn’t lose it’s character or sound weak with gain/pedals, and works wonderfully with my use case.
I ran into two issues, one of which was my fault and the other being a ?minor inconvenience. I ordered this pickup with 50mm string spacing, but I wish I could have ordered it with 48mm string spacing, which isn’t an option offered on this model. This would allow the outer two pole pieces to sit more in line with the low E and high E strings in the neck position, which would be more ideal. Next, when I initially installed it, I did so as it came, with the black and ground wires being tied together and the white wire going to the pickup selector. This caused the P90 to be out of phase with the bridge position humbucker when the two were used together, so I had to resolder the connections the correct way. This easily could have been fixed by me testing the pickup before I installed it, but I was so excited to get it installed that I just skipped that part!
All in all, this is an awesome option if you love the P90 sound but don’t like the noise that comes along with it. I would highly recommend this pickup to anyone looking for a new P90

This is my first experience with the “ noiseless” P90’s and I could not be happier!! I get all of the growl of a vintage P90 with zero noise. I even requested the 5% underwound trying for that true vintage sound and was rewarded 10 times over. I highly recommend these pickups. Could not be happier
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!
