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?

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. Available in a Soapbar, Dogear, and Humbucker, you can rest assured knowing you can get the Fralin P90 tone in any guitar you have.

Features:

  • Lindy Fralin Original Design: True P90 Tone, No Hum
  • Multiple Outputs available for fine-tuning your Pickup’s voice
  • Strong and bold – lots of midrange and snarl
  • 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

  • Hand-built for unrivaled quality control
  • Backed by our 10-Year Warranty on manufacturing defects
  • Risk-Free 30-day exchange policy

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.

    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.

  2. 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.... Read more

    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.

    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

    I ordered two sets P90 Dogears. 5% overwound for bridge positions and just the regular winding for neck. Hum cancelling is awesome! Have one set installed and they are excellent.
    Hope to have the others in another 330 soon. Might be a bit more expensive than some others however quality and sound, tone is amazing. Hope to get some humbuckers this year for my 335’s.
    Thank you again for the great pups! DWC, The Guitarmon!

    Just wish I knew about these sooner. Have one overwound in my LP jr and a pair in a Guild TBird. Sound amazing and are quiet.

    Love these pickups. Lindy Fralin you are a wizard!

    To Lindy and the team,
    I completed my first guitar build on a ‘partscaster’; swamp ash body and roasted maple neck with a Bigsby tailpiece. I used your Dynasonic, P90 and split blade Telecaster pickups. I replaced the tone control with a blender pot for the bridge and neck pickups. I couldn’t be happier. I have 3 distinct sounds from each pickup that are all loud and clear. I am using a handmade 5E3 clone amp and the tone is the best of all my guitars with the new Fralin pickups. Lindy thanks for your help selecting the pickups and with some follow questions during installation. I am still tweaking the pickup height adjustments to get equal volume and max tone. I will be recommending your products.

    To Lindy, Tyler, and the kind staff at Lindy Fralin pickups,

    I recently purchased a Quiet P-90 for my lap steel guitar, and honestly can say that I have, after a 10 yr quest for the “right” sounding pickup, can say that my journey is over. This is quite possibly the best-sounding pickup I have ever personally owned. This pickup is a perfect match for my lap steel which is made of 1 piece of solid west African Khaya wood, which is a very beautiful warm-sounding tonewood, however, the pickup was crucial to get the right balance between mid-range “growl” and brightness to counteract the warmth of the Khaya wood. I can not say enough about how great this pickup sounds, and am extremely grateful to all, this is one amazing pickup!

  6. Mark Williams

    I had a Fralin hum-canceling P90 installed in the neck position of a Ron Thorn G/T several years ago but neglected to write a review (I’m about to order another for an LP Special I just found.). This pickup has been exactly what I’ve been looking for over years, and it has been just great–wonderful tone whether clean or overdriven & I love the innovative design. I’ve tried a number of “no noise” P90-type pickups from very, very well-respected builders without being completely satisfied, but the Fralin Hum-Canceling P90 is by far the best of its type I’ve ever tried.

  7. Grigory Orlov

    Hello, Lindy!

    Today I installed your P90 hum-canceling on one of the guitars. I work in a guitar workshop and have heard a lot of different pickups. But yours is something special! Most of all, I appreciate in the pickup the ability to respond to the dynamics of sound extraction and volume control. Even with very strong distortion, I can achieve a clear sound, or a crunch, only by turning the knob to a different position.

    Despite the snow outside the window, the mood was quite spring 🙂

    I want to thank you for your undoubted engineering and musical luck and wish you further success and development of your business!

    Best regards! Grigory, Moscow, Russia

    Replaced a Gibson P90 on a SG Junior Reissue with a %5 over wound Lindy Fralin noiseless P90. WOW! I absolutely love this pickup! Lots of growl like expected from a P90 but without the 60 Hz hum. Not muddy nor ice picky either. Really nice articulate P90 that responds to dynamic playing and the volume and tone knobs. Highly recommend this pickup!

    Verified Buyer

    Replaced the 9k P90 in my Epiphone Coronet with a 5% overwound noiseless P90 from Lindy. Wow, this thing just honks. Fat, greasy tones, has me unleashing my inner Leslie West! Plus no 60 cycle noise!!!

  10. Garrick Roberts
    Verified Buyer

    Sounds like a P90 without the hum. Output seems very slightly down compared to single-coil P90 but it’s not a problem. I love it.
