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.

231 Genuine Reviews for Hum-Cancelling P90
Like them a lot. My P90s are in a telecaster with a 4-way switch. The bridge 2C series 2C and parallel positions sound great. Neck position sounds a little muddy and I’m working on that. Playing through a deluxe reverb clone with this setup is really good.
Finally!!! A no-hum P-90 that sounds like a great sounding P-90… it’s a must-have. So Rad! Aloha, Bob Rock!!
Great P90 Tone! These pickups deliver that great P90 tone of the past but without the hum! Another great design by Lindy Fralin!
Amazing upgrade! Hello Lindy, Swapping out the original Gibson P-90 with your hum canceling one has taken my Les Paul Jr to a whole new level. It is now completely silent so I can focus on the nuances of the tone of the pickup. It sounds warmer, richer and grittier than ever before! I can’t thank you enough for the improvement in the tone your pickup has brought to my guitar! See you again, hopefully soon.
True to a P90 without the hum! Love it.
Welk, i bought the humless P90 Dogear for to try to build a cheap and good guitar which can take some serious beating during live shows.
So i bought a brand new 230,- (!!!) Harley Benton Junior Double cut and slapoed in this P90. With shocking results!
I chose the guitar because ist is all mahony with a set neck. With the Fralin PU ist is my best sounding guitar now and that‘s hillarious as i own an der Gibson 94 Dc, an Gibson 61 Reissue SG and an Duesenberg Dragster which i love to death!
Success? Hell yes!!! This won‘t be the last Fralin for me to get, thats for sure!
Just finished installing a +5% neck hum canceling P90 in my 1955 Gibson es 225 – single pickup guitar.
The original gibson pickup had a cracked top and was not sounding quite right… Probably need to get it repaired.
And middle position on this guitar is not quite neck or bridge… New electronics and all [so the original stays original and in a box]
Used 500k for vol and 250k for tone with 22 cap… So +5% – Wow it sounds marvelous …
can be clear and throaty – gritty to chimey and jazzy and mellow. Makes the ’55 sound like dynamite!
Holy P90! This pickup is beyond godliness! A whole new level has been reached then far surpassed!
Absolutely unreal! The luthier that put them in for me fell in love with them. He called the bridge pickup “Filthy!” in the best way possible. The 2019 Les Paul I put them just came alive. Kudos!
I received a set of these Hum Canceling P90’s in my Novo Serus J a few months ago. Honestly, at first …. I was really kinda bummed that Dennis and crew had stopped using the Amalfitano P90’s in their guitars as I was addicted to them. They were the best P90’s that I had ever owned/played in my short electric guitar playing career(8 years). I figured worst case scenario, I could sell the Fralin’s and contact Jerry to get a set of his made to go in the Novo if I ended up not liking them as much …… BUT ….. I don’t see that EVER happening. These Hum Canceling P90’s flat out ROCK and are dead silent!!! That was my only complaint ever about P90’s was the noise and how Lindy managed to pull off a silent P90 that still sounds like and reacts like a P90 is suppose to is beyond me …. but I am very grateful he did! This has turned into my #1 electric and honestly the first guitar I’ve owned that I don’t see myself changing a single thing out electronic wise(which is normally the first thing I do to a guitar). So, a big THANK YOU goes out to all at the Fralin company!!! Job well done!!!
All I can say is WOW, what a difference. I have a 2015 Gibson Les Paul Special DC with P-90’s stock. I thought it sounded pretty decent. I purchased the hum canceling p-90’s stock. Like I said WOW I pushed my pedal board to the side couldn’t believe how much better it sounded. Blown away. So worth what I paid. Great customer service. Top shelf
Lindy has nailed it again! These sound incredible.
This is everything I wanted!
I’m probably not the traditional Fralin customer. I play punk with lots of gain, but I care about my tone. This pickup ticks all of the boxes. I don’t have the annoying feedback and buzz from my old P-90. I also got the over wind so the breakup is much sooner meaning I don’t have to run as much gain. It is still a P-90, so I cut through the mix like I’m playing a Telecaster through a Twin Reverb on 10. Thanks so much for the amazing product. I will be getting one of your PAF’s next.
Lindy thank you for this pickup. I have your pickups in all my guitars and these P90s might just be my favorite. I don’t know what your secret is but to anyone that hasn’t heard: image the best sounding P90 guitar from one your of favorite albums and then remove the hum, that’s it. I replaced the stock P90s in a Gibson SG with these about a year ago and I still can’t put the guitar down. Every time I play it, I get a big smile on my face from the sound coming out of these pickups. As with all Fralin pickups, there is no sweet spot on your volume or tone controls, the sweet spot is everywhere. You can’t get a bad sound out these pickups. If you’re thinking about trying these pickups, just do it. You won’t regret it. One recommendation: try these out with a treble cut and bass cut tone circuit like on a G&L or Reverend.
Can I curse in a review? They f***ing rock.
While I feel maybe a little something was lost from switching from the classic “noisy ” P90 that was in my Les Paul before. I am overall pleased. The small compromise in sound is not enough to make me want to go back to the old ones. It sounds very close. When I a/b it with a normal Gibson PAF the difference is huge. More bite, clarity and versatile tone. Equally suited for “Tele” style country picking, heavier rock, rockabilly, and blues. These pickups allow me to be all over the map stylistically without switching guitars and the best part is they are as quiet as a PAF.
Finally, a Hum-Cancelling P90 that rocks!! All the character of a vintage P90, with some mid-range push and an open vintage top end…love it!!!
This P90 with the 5% overwound spec(noise canceling) is just ridiculous!! Placed it in my 2011 TV Yellow Jr and now that guitar blows away most of my higher end LPs!! Can I just say WOW all over again?!?
I put these Lindy Fralin hum cancelling P90s in a 1963 Gibson SG and they sound great! Very happy with them. Thank you.
Hum-Cancelling P90 “No 60 Cycle Hum”d
I could not be any happier with my Hum-Cancelling P90s!!! I have never owned P90s that did not hum. Some worse that others. I can turn my amp up and there is no hum at all. That is great….but don’t forget why we like the P90s….that punchy growl is there. They sound awesome!
