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.


  • 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-wound with our “Sectioning” technique for unique, dynamic tone
  • Hand-built for unrivaled quality control
  • Backed by our 10-Year Warranty on manufacturing defects
  • Risk-Free 30-day exchange policy


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.

    Listen with your ears not with your eyes! I own a 59 Gibson P90 and the Fralin Hum Cancelling is the nearest to it that I have found (and I have tried a lot). Highly recomended.

  2. Robert Manes
    Verified Buyer

    Fat, full, and quiet! Wow, just wow. I made the right choice.

  3. Manoog Hadeshian
    Verified Buyer

    Hum cancelling P90’s…love ‘em! Put these pups in my LPS and the sound great! Very warm and great sustain. Much quieter than the Gibson stock P90’s. Very little high end loss and Glorious midrange!

  4. David Campbell
    Verified Buyer

    Great Replacement. I bought your hum-cancelling P90 to replace the original pickup in my 1965 Gibson ES-125T. The pickup was an exact fit. I love the tone and the lack of hum.

  5. Michael Hamilton
    Verified Buyer

    Articulate, docile, and ferocious! All in one!
    I replaced the stock pu that came in my Reverend Sensei Jr. with this, as the original pu sounded pretty good but was very microphonic. I am super happy with the results. I can nail just about any sound I want, as the Sensei has a treble roll off knob and a bass roll off knob. It is easy to get a clean hi-fi sound with rich solid bass and the right amount of mids’ and hi’s. Equally easy to find is great crunch by running the volume up a bit. Pinch harmonics pop right out. Just a great all round pickup for a guitar with only one. Thanks guys!

  6. Gregory Livengood
    Verified Buyer

    Best P-90 on the Market! I am absolutely thrilled with the set I purchased. They replaced three Gibson stock P-90s and the difference is stunning. The attack is sharper, the body is fuller, and, of course, the noise is kept to a minimum. I’d like to add that I called to inquire about the best way to replace a set of three and Lindy himself answered the question. I just can’t say enough good things.

  7. Kevin Ross
    Verified Buyer

    Put this pickup in my circa 1963 Gibson ES-125T. It sounds great, no noise and it fit perfectly. This guitar used to sit in the case and only get played maybe once a year, now I am playing it all the time. I am very very pleased! I play mostly Jazz and Blues and this pickup is perfect for this. The original P90 had an unuseable 60 cycle hum. I highly recommend this pickup to anyone that can’t stand the 60 cycle hum. Thank you Lindy Fralin!

  8. David Coffey
    Verified Buyer

    Great, robust P-90 classic Sounds. Thank you

  9. Paul Stebner
    Verified Buyer

    Always great! Every pickup I encounter from Lindy Fralin is top quality with a classic tone and customary sweetness that Lindy is known for. A professional’s top choice!

  10. Anthoni Rondini
    Verified Buyer

    Love the hum cancelling soapbars. These made such a huge difference in my LP Special that I cannot put the guitar down. I haven’t touched a Strat single coil or Les Paul humbucker since!
