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.

Have a Fender player series Mustand w/2 p90s. Will your hum cancelling P90s as well as other versions drop right in? Is there a HB that will fit if I put one in the bridge or will the guitar sound better with 2 P90's. Have you used your pick ups in two strats and a tele and am a big fan. Picked up a set many years ago at your facility as I live in VA.

Hey! So I would like to get some hum cancelling p90s, I was wondering if I could get the alnico rod p90 for the neck and then the stock p90 (not alnico, adjustable pole piece p90) for the bridge? Would I be able to combine those? The clean sound on the alnico for the neck is great, but I want the grit from the other p90 for the bridge. I’m scared the bridge with alnico rods won’t sound as good with distortion as the adjustable pole piece p90....

Hey Andrew, great question. For this, we find it's best to overwind the neck pickup to match the P90. You can absolutely order them as a set, but you'd have to add them to cart individually. The traditional Hum Cancelling P90 definitely sounds better with distortion.
What combination of Hum Canceling P90s would you recommend for a Heritage H530 and a player primarily playing finger style toward the jazz/blues end of the tonal spectrum?

Hey Michael, I'd recommend using either the Stock output for a brighter, cleaner tone or the +5% Output for a warmer, jazzier tone.
Select the same output for both pickups, for example +5% Neck, +5% Bridge.

Hey James, it depends - if you have plastic covers, you'll have no issues with removing and changing the cover to something else. If you have metal dogear covers, those are difficult to remove as they are soldered to the baseplate. - Tyler

Reviews we worked hard for, and are proud of.
"I absolutely LOVE my no hum P90's!! I ordered a full set with the neck being a standard wind and the bridge with the +5% wind. I put them in my 57 custom shop reissue and they are absolutely perfect!! The extra grind on the +5 is exactly what I wanted, without it being overbearing. Tone for days and the whole point being NO HUM. Completely quiet! There are so many tones in these pickups just by riding your volume control, as well as the out of phase tones in the middle position. It's a joy to keep finding useable and truly fantastic tones with each move of the volume dial!!! I cannot recommend these enough as they have become my absolute go to P90 pickup!!"
"When I ordered my 5% overwound P90s, I knew they would be great. However when I received them, installed them in my TMG Scarlett Nigel Hendroff Signature, plugged it in, and hit the first chord, the only word that describes the level of Greatness is Magic. Pure Magic. Completely changed the tone pallet of the guitar, and instantly improved it all around. These aren’t the only Fralin pickups I have, and they certainly won’t be the last. Thanks so much."
"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!"
"P90's you need to get Mr. Fralin was kind enough to make time for me. We spoke of the guitar type and wiring. After discussing the request. We came to an agreement on the overall construction. Hard to put into several sentences how dynamic and tonal flexible these P90's are. I've owned many types of pickups. Noiseless, Vintage, Singles, Hums, Active... I have to say these are a whole other monster...and I mean a tone Monster. You can get almost any tone you are looking for out of a P90 type pickup when you learn to adjust the height and poll pieces for your guitar. Just amazing. Thank you Mr. Fralin"
"Mind Blown! Awesome Pickup for my 2019 LP Junior! I previously had it stock, then with a humbucker, and now this Fralin Hum-Cancelling P90 [I did the +5% version]. This one really goes when you turn it up, esp with an overdrive. Even better with a MK II tonebender Fuzz! But it still cleans up nicely when you roll off the volume--makes for a smooth, sweet, and creamy "Blue Sky" by ABB. It is the Classic P90 sound but uplifted. Indeed the 60-cycle hum is eliminated!! I will admit that I was a bit skeptical, but definitely the best thing I could do for my Junior. Worth every penny. Thank you Fralin Team! 6 stars!"
"My Ideal P90’s Let me first say that Lindy, you are a true genius! I got a PRS Korina McCarty Soapbar several years ago, love the guitar (it weighs 6.2 pounds) and it feels so comfortable to play. But, I felt the stock P90’s just didn’t suit my taste. After a lot of research, I decided to give Lindy Fralin Pickups a call and actually got Lindy on the phone. After telling Lindy what I was looking for, he suggested the Hum-Cancelling P90 set. I ordered them and installed them in the McCarty. WOW, it’s like I have a new guitar! The sound is exactly what I was looking for, clear, articulate, crisp. Playing the Hum-Canceling P90 equipped McCarty through my Princeton Reverb is very rewarding with the tone I never thought possible! Thanks, Lindy!!"
"Amazing as usual! Perfect blend of humbucker and single coil tones without the hum! I love these pickups. Very articulate and clear but also nasty at the same time. Beautiful clean tones and classic overdriven tones! I’m a Fralin pickups addict. I am blessed to have 4 great guitars and having Fralins in each of them make them 4 Absolutely Awesome guitars! Thanks to Lindy and the Whole team. Each person is so important and they are all what makes this such a great company!!"
