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.

    Hey Aaron, yes they do!

  2. Is this pickup available as a middle pickup? I am in the process of converting a SG into a 3 pickup guitar with noiseless hum sized p90s in neck and bridge position. Would love this in the middle if possible. Thanks.

    Hey D, yes you can absolutely use this as a Middle pickup. We recommend going with the Neck Output.

  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. She`s very articulate and percise with a lot of sustain (it`s really hard to describe the tone). Right ... Read more

    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.

    Great, brighter Humbucker alternative. Brighter than I expected with the screw pole pieces but still very musical and never harsh. Wake up your dull, humbucker equipped guitar!

  2. Jimmy

    I have the P92s in a Telecaster Deluxe American Professional 2016…they’re the most versatile pickups I’ve ever owned. I play on tour for Jamey Johnson and he covers a lot of musical ground. The P92s make it easy to dial into to warm jazzy tones, dirty southern rock and clean chicken pickin’ country .I manage to cover it all on the one guitar. I would definitely purchase again.

  3. T-Style
    Verified Buyer

    Lovely pickup! Was searching something different for T-style guitar with CuNiFe WRHB in neck. The looks matched too.

    Haven’t own a P90 guitar before, but long time wanted one. With minimal hum, because playing environment is quite “dirty” electrically (all kinds of interference sources).

    Alone P-92 is gritty and gnarly, but still articulate. Organic with an edge, responsive, breaks up beautifully, and when using the tone pot can reach jazzier sounds if needed. In the middle position it blends beautifully with Wide Range Humbucker when correct adjustments and balance was found. Brings certain in the mix “ding” while WRHB offers “bloom” 😀 .. I’ve got an out of phase switch too and when using volume pots with it, yet another world opens.

    Was first little worried how it pairs with a hottish humbucker, but result is great. At least for my purposes (blues, grunge, punkish stuff, rock). P-92 carries itself and also work as a pair. Although used actually few days adjusting and finding the sweet spots.

    P 92 pickup set

    I put these in a Gibson SG and they sound amazing. They are very clear and balanced. They really come alive when pushed into distortion. I couldn’t be happier. The youtube videos represent them very well.

  6. Bob Farmer

    I bought a pair of gold P92s from MacDaddy Music. Installed in an Epiphone Lucille, they turned a dark, somewhat muddy-sounding guitar without a lot of personality into a real gem. Highly recommended.

    I put a P-92 front pickup on an ES-335. To me, it sounds better than the humbucker did. I play a Strat a lot of the time and the P-92 is more reminiscent of a strat front pick up than the humbucker was. It is also dead quiet, no hum.

    P-92s in a D’Angelico 335 style

    I swapped out the stock Kent Armstrong humbuckers with the Fralin P-92s in my D’Angelico 335 style guitar. The P-92s sound really clear as I had hoped. The stock humbuckers sounded muddy to my ear – good for blues, perhaps. Not so good for jazz and Latin/African music that I often play. To my surprise, the P92s also improved the dynamic response of the instrument. The “touch” of the guitar is improved/enhanced with the P-92s. I have a Godin archtop (Uptown) that plays and sounds very good. It has Godin humbuckers. The P-92s have a better dynamic touch/response than these pickups. I am considering P-92s for this guitar…haven’t decided. I appreciate Lindy’s personal input. It helped a lot. Thanks, Boston musician, Mark Torgerson
