Sound

Improve the tone of your Jazzmaster today with our Hum-Cancelling Jazzmaster pickups. Whether you are a professional recording artist or a local hero, you understand the importance of getting rid of that pesky hum. Hum Cancelling pickups from other manufacturers always fall short of that real Jazzmaster tone, but at Fralin Pickups, we have the perfect solution. Lindy’s unique hum-canceling design provides you with the purest single-coil tone you can get out of a hum-free pickup.

Our Hum Cancelling Jazzmasters features a clear, round bottom end, with smooth and sparkly highs. Expect a balanced and clear midrange with an excellent string definition. You’ll love the familiar Fender pick attack as single notes sound clear and round, and chords will sound warm and defined. 

Do you play clean? If so, you’ll find this set’s tone incredibly beautiful as the USA-Made Alnico 5 Magnets supply plenty of Fender sparkle. Playing with distortion will yield creamy, silky tones with a smooth, late breakup. We can overwind this model by 5% to give you more output and a darker and beefier tone – ask for it in the “Notes” field. 

Our manufacturing process allows us to achieve unparalleled quality control. Our Hum-Cancelling Jazzmaster Pickups consist of a precision injection mold and USA-Made wire. We use smooth-sounding USA-Made magnets to make this model clear and balanced. Each bobbin is carefully inspected and cleaned before winding.

We wind each pickup by hand, one at a time, using our proprietary “Sectioning” technique. This gives the pickup a sweet, clear tone. Finally, we wax-pot the pickup to preserve the pickup and prevent microphonics.

For a Hum-Cancelling P90 version, we offer this pickup as a Hum-Cancelling Steel Pole Jazzmaster. Check it out.

See below for the estimated DCR and Polarity Information for our Hum-Cancelling Jazzmaster.

This pickup is hum cancelling and features reversible polarity if purchased with 2-Conductor With Shield Lead. You might need to rout out a bit of wood to make these pickups fit. Some customers were required to rout about 1/16" - 1/8" from their pickup cavities. On American Vintage Reissue Guitars (AVRI), you'll need to lift the Copper Plate, rout some of the wood (1/8" - 1/4"), and replace the copper plate.

    A Hey Mike, it depends on what you are pairing our pickup with. We normally recommend purchasing pickups in a set as they are compensated in terms of tone and output. That said, our Hum Cancelling Jazzmasters are not a "High Output" model - they are more vintage output. - Tyler

    Hey Eric, it should be - we use 2-Conductor With Shield wire (Hot, Ground, Shield), which is more versatile than Cloth Wiring. I'd take a look under your pickguard, and if you see cloth wire, you'll have no issues wiring this up.

    Hey Stephen, yes, these pickups should fit just fine, but please take a look at our dimensions on the "Sizing" tab and double-check your measurements against ours. The only issue that could come up would be the pickup height, as our Hum Cancelling Jazzmasters are a bit taller than a standard Jazzmaster.

  6. Do my existing pickup covers fit these pickups?
  7. Q Do my existing pickup covers fit these pickups?

    Hey Peter, as long as you have 52mm pole piece spacing, your covers will fit just fine.

    Take a look at our Pickup Height article here and we recommend a 0.02mfd cap value for this pickup.

    Hey Art, if your pots are 1Meg, I would definitely recommend going to 500K or even 300K for a jazzier tone.

    Hey Wes, yes. those pickups are a Stacked design - which Lindy avoids as he believes it doesn't sound as good as his design. Our design is a "Side by side" or "Sidewinder" design and gives a much clearer and more articulate tone.

     

  14. This pickup may well be my favorite Fralin, tone wise, but I have a PRS SE cu24 (humbuckers), and so the jazzmaster pup will not fit my guitar. What (Humbucker) pup can you wind for me that will sound the closest to the Fralin h.c. Jazzmaster clip I heard on SoundCloud? ??? Guessing: H.C. P90 with slight under-wind? Alnico Noiseless P90 with slight over-wind? Over-wound P92?

    Hey Brian, if you're looking for a Jazzmaster tone out of a Humbucker, I would certainly go with the Alnico Noiseless P90 Humbucker.

     

  16. What’s the String Spacing?
  17. Q What’s the String Spacing?
    A 52mm.
  18. How do you orient the pickup?
  19. Q How do you orient the pickup?
    A The D magnet will be the tallest magnet – so the leads come out of the “treble” side.
  20. What’s the tonal difference between this and your Standard Jazzmaster?
  21. Q What’s the tonal difference between this and your Standard Jazzmaster?
    A No Hum, of course! Other than that, not much. It’s very clean, clear, and articulate. The midrange might be a little bigger, and the highs might be slightly softer in the Hum-Cancelling version.
  22. Is this noiseless set appropriate for a left- handed guitar?
  23. Q Is this noiseless set appropriate for a left- handed guitar?
    A Yes – this set will work both Left and Right handed.

    Amazing Noiseless Pickups

    I seriously am so happy with my purchase!! I was debating between a few different reputable companies for JM noiseless pickups for a while for my JM. The reviews on Fralin were all top notch and now I know why. These are dead silent and sound ridiculous. The highs and lows are perfect. So for me I have a 2021 Dark Knight JM Pro II that I put these in. My guitar tech kind of re wired my guitar specifically in a way that is amazing with these pick ups that I won’t get into but I will say they are completely hum free. I will also note that prior to ordering them I called Fralin and spoke to someone there and they were so helpful and friendly. They recommended a 300k volume pot for them which I got and that is amazing also. Overall Fralin for the win!!

    Rippers! These pups are destroying the noisy stock winders!!! Absolutely love every Fralin pickup I’ve heard and used!

    Jazzmaster American Standard
    Pickups make this thing sound like an angel coming out of my helix. No hum at all, even with drives stacked! Very impressed and can’t wait to put Fralins in my other guitars.

  5. Matthew J Wilder
    Verified Buyer

    I’ll be honest, a little bright for me. To be fair I’m playing with stainless steel frets and a ziricote board, so, brighter than rosewood and nickel. As far as clear and articulate, absolutely. I was hoping for a bit more bass, but I’m hoping to compensate with my amp. Hope this helps.

      Hey Matthew,

      Would you like to exchange it for a heavier wind? We can add a few extra turns on the pickup and it will thicken up the midrange, and decrease the highs. Email us at [email protected] if you’d like to process this exchange!

    Very, very nice set of pickups

    I’ll be honest, I’m new to the whole Jazzmaster thing, but I know what a traditional JM sounds like. With a custom build that I put together (maple neck with Pau Ferro fb and SS frets + semi-hollow alder body), I knew that I wanted to avoid the rather extreme hum that traditional JM pickups tend to exhibit. When I installed this set of Fralin pickups, I did notice that the overall size of the coils was much smaller, but with the same overall thickness as a “normal” JM pickup. I use a pair of 500K audio taper pots in volume and tone positions. Plugging in, the guitar sounds warm but articulate in the neck position, chimey and twangy with both pickups combined, and bright but with a good degree of growl in the bridge pickup. I used this guitar for rehearsal and I must say that articulation is retained whether using a very low edge-of-breakup tone or with crunch tones and higher gain stuff when using a booster for solos. The neck is plump with enough warmth to evoke that traditional jazzbox tone, the combined tone is like a fat telecaster, but with more chime than a tele could ever muster; and the bridge is fast becoming one of my favourites for driven tones and solos. Thank you Lindy for crafting such a wonderful product; this is the fifth guitar that is equipped with your products, I’m definitely a huge Lindy Fralin fan and supporter!

    All the twang and jangle you could ever dream of!
    I swapped out my J.Mascis Squier Jazzmaster pickups with the Fralins. Less growl than the more P90 stock pups, but that’s what I wanted. More true Jazzmaster tone and the Fralins deliver. They are clean, punchy and best of all, hum-free. Very happy I went with these. Highly recommended.

    AMAZING!
    It took me a while to pull the trigger, I was just unsure I was going to get the tone I was after. WAS I WRONG! Just order them! WHisper quiet and totally boutique sound and quality. I don’t want to put my Jazzmaster down! Thanks Lindy Fralin!!!!
