Sound

As we’re sure you’re aware, a known challenge with P90 pickups is the hum. Rest assured: we’ve solved that problem and found a unique, versatile sonic footprint where the P-92 fits perfectly.

The P-92 features a cleaner and more articulate overall tone. It’s more “polite” than our Hum Cancelling P90s, and much clearer-sounding than our Pure P.A.F. That said, the P-92 offers you a thick, warm midrange accompanied by a stiffer and rounder treble – perfect for many music styles.

The P-92 is quick to break up, but you’ll find that it’s still clearer, like traditional Vintage P90s. Built with alnico V magnets, we use 42-gauge or 43 gauge wire depending on the strength you need.

When playing clean, you’ll find that this pickup has a thicker, bold tone with a stiff high end. With distortion, you’ll find that the grind is dirtier than our Big Single, but not as much as a typical Humbucker.

Players who want a sparkly-top end should look at our Twangmasters, as our P-92’s sound more like a Gibson.

It all starts here: our manufacturing process allows us to achieve unparalleled quality control. Our P-92’s consist of USA-Made bobbins, baseplates, magnets, and wire.

We wind each pickup by hand, one at a time using our proprietary “Sectioning” technique. This gives the pickup a sweet, bright tone. We assemble each pickup one at a time, by hand. This allows us to achieve unbeatable attention to detail. Finally, we wax-pot the pickup to prevent microphonics and to preserve the pickup for years to come.

    Greetings. Your P92s are a strong contender for replacing Gibson T Buckers in a new ES 335. I mainly play blues. Which output would you recommend for a semi-hollow. Also have some NOS Sprague Black Beauty caps .o22uf and .o47uf. Would these be good size to use on the 500k pots? .o22uf in neck and .o47 for bridge?

  4. Hi there, I´m really corious abot your PUs, but I just wanna know, which model is the right fit to my guitar. It`s a LP Special type but with a short Tele-Bridge. The body wood is cherry with a spruce top, the neck is mahogany (really thick with a V-Profile). Andreas Kloppmann said that the guitar sounds (accoustically) like a lapsteel to him.

    Hey Harlem, the P-92 sounds like the perfect fit - it's an acoustically "open"-sounding P90 tone with a clearer midrange and plenty of articulation. I use it to play jazz and it is one of my favorite pickups we make - it really lets the tone of the guitar come through.

  6. I have a telecaster thinline 72, I would like to know if the size is the same as the febder wide range and also if I can use the fender covers, I would also like to know wich would be a nice option for the output of the pickups, thanks

    Hey Ahmed, the P-92 is a standard humbucker size, so it is smaller than the Wide Range Humbuckers. You would have to get a new pickguard in order to use the P-92 on your guitar.

  8. Just watched a video of Lindy demonstrating the P92 and said the bridge was 8000 and neck was 7800. Are those stock, or how much underwound?

    Hey Jeremy, those pickups were very underwound. Our Stock Set comes in at 8,200 on the Neck and 9,200 on the Bridge.

  1. Andrew

    After extensive research, reading forums, watching YouTube videos, etc., I purchased a set of the Fralin P92’s from Vision Guitar in San Jose to replace the stock humbuckers in my Epiphone ES-335. I loved the feel of the guitar but the stock pickups were muddy and dull. These P92’s are absolutely incredible. There’s so much clarity, definition, bite and “spank.” They’re punchy and articulate with remarkable response to pick attack, and can snarl, shimmer and sparkle beautifully by working the volume and tone controls on the guitar. Highly recommended.

    I had been of the opinion that the original P90 tone (not the hum) was the summit of pickup design, and all the humbuckers that followed were just a tad down the slope. It became a kind of mission for me to find a hum-free p90 sound at the neck and bridge, so I kept returning to the sound clips on the Fralin website. I thought, “Well, a P92 in the neck and a split-coil T-style bridge might get it.” Long story short, I am astonished at how good both pickups sound. 500k pots for me, .015 capacitor, but I have a feeling there’s no way to make these pickups sound bad. I do intend to find out. More likely than sounding like Keith, you’ll make him want a set if he doesn’t have them already. To my ear, Fralin has found a new summit. Equal height or higher may be a matter of opinion, but I personally look forward to a long time playing these pickups. You want jazz on the neck? You got it by the dozens. You want twang and grit on the bridge? Truckloads.

  3. Sean Hartwell

    I installed these in an sg and am really pleased with the result. Big fan of the Allman Brothers and Television, and have been chasing a bright articulate sound with hum-cancelling and harmonic depth – these pickup are ticking the boxes for me – they work beautifully with my amps and pedals.

  4. Davi Belo
    Verified Buyer

    Totally awesome!
    I had gibson 57 classic. too muddy, later I got P90s, too noisy. Now, I got Franlin P-92s (2% and 5% overwound). They have beef, but a lot more articulated and less compressed than a PAF, a liiiittle less mid creamy as a P-90 but zero noise though!

  5. Cody

    Amazingly versatile pickup. I put a full stock set in a telecaster deluxe. Dead quiet and can get beautifully detailed cleans that are still rich sounding. Also sounds great for high gain and edge of breakup tones. Best pickups I have ever used.

    Verified Buyer

    Fantastico!! 6-Stars
    Running a 5% underwound P-92 in an HH tele, neck position, recessed under pickguard (esquire-ish look) or convertible to a surface mount trim ring. Great either way!

    Pole pieces needed very little adjustment across strings. EQ of pickup is very well balanced – tastefully present mid details and excellent high roll off.

  7. Matthew Halvatzis

    I just installed these into a P92-Split Blade Blues Output-P92 strat guitar, and they sound fantastic. I have the Fralin humcancelling 90s and the 92s are very accurately a slightly more “polite” version of those. I did an additional 5% overwind which I’m happy about but I’m sure I would just been as happy with the stock winding. They pair well in the combination strat positions with the split blade getting you very quacky strat tones. I’m also using a bass contour circuit which just gives me more options onboard. Lindy and the entire staff were super helpful helping me figure this out, and were super helpful when UPS lost my package for 2 weeks.
