Hum-Cancelling P90 With Alnico Rods FEATURES:
The Hum-Cancelling P90 with Alnico Rods is the perfect pickup for those looking for a cleaner, more articulate P90 pickup. It has an airiness and sparkle not found with adjustable pole pieces. Also, It’s great for those looking to balance a dark guitar. You’ll find that this pickup stays clean, while still having a fat, beefy midrange and thickness commonly found with P90 pickups.
Even though we are calling this pickup a P90, it’s not quite a P90. P90s are known for a snarly midrange and a stiffer top end. The Alnico Noiseless P90 is softer, cleaner, and has that ‘sparkle’ that you’re familiar with! This pickup is available in all our Soapbar and Dogear versions.
- Alnico Rods for a Fender-type sparkle
- Soapbar / Dogear construction
- Hum-free design for completely noiseless operation
- 49.5mm Standard Spacing, with an option for 52mm Bridges (Black & Cream Soapbar only)
- Wound with USA-Made 42 Gauge SPN Wire
- Backed by our 10 Year Warranty against manufacturing defects
- Wax Potted to prevent microphonics and corrosion
- 30-day Risk-Free exchange policy
The Alnico Noiseless P-90 will sound like a regular P90, but with a familiar Fender sparkle on the top-end. Clean and articulate when playing without distortion. You’ll find that the nuances of your playing will come out as this pickup “breathes” more than it’s compressed P90 counterpart. With distortion, you’ll find a smooth, late breakup with a familiar Fender Strat-type tone. Expect a clear pick attack and a warmer midrange.
This midrange of this pickup is pronounced as well. You’ll find that the Alnico Noiseless P90 will still sound fat and beefy!
Are you looking for more of a traditional P90 tone? You won’t find that here. This model features a more “Fender” quality to it. If you’re looking for a traditional P90 tone, check out our P90 and Hum Cancelling P90!
Take a listen to our friend Mike Hermans use our Alnico Noiseless P90 in the neck position of his Tele:

Hi Fralin Pickups, Do you sell pickup screws for the HUM-CANCELLING P90 WITH ALNICO RODS w/ burnished covers? I purchased a used Epiphone Casino with these already installed and one of the neck pickup cover screws is stripped. I'd like to fix and replace it. Thanks, Dustin

Hey Dustin, yes - we call it Raw Nickel. They are not aged covers, but they are unplated nickel silver, giving them a raw almost brushed look.
I’d like to swap out a neck P90 in my Reverend Double Agent. The current neck pickup is the Reverend 9A5 (42 ga. wire, alnico 5 magnets, 7.5K ohms). The bridge pickup is a DiMarzio AT-1 Humbucker (passive, Alnico 5 magnets, 16.50K ohm). These two pickups have a good volume match but the neck P90 is very dark. I’m looking at the Lindy Fralin Noiseless Alnico rod P90 to brighten up the neck position. QUESTION: Would the neck version (8.8K) of t...

Hey Dan, I believe the DiMarzio you're pairing our Alnico Rod P90 with will greatly overpower our pickup. I believe you'll have a massive gap in Tone and Output and switching between the two will be quite a jump. We could go with a Bridge wind (10K) and you'll have a bit more output and midrange while still retaining the clarity. - Tyler
Is this available in a HB sized cover, and if so, is it set the middle of the pickup, or offset to an edge of the cover so that it can be aligned with the right spot on the string if dropped into an LP style guitar?

Hey Dale, yes - take a look at our humbucker version here. Our pole pieces are set in the middle of the pickup, like a P90, but the string spacing is 50mm, which works for the majority of guitars. - Tyler
Can you split the coils on this pickup?
Q Can you split the coils on this pickup?A
Hey Mike, as it turns out, we cannot split the coils of this pickup - it's one continous coil.
Saw the comparison clip (Hum-canceling P90 vs HC P90 with Alnico Rods) and prefer the latter. It’s not clear to me for a TELE Deluxe (Shiflett) if the Hum-Canceling P90 with Alnico Rods model is available in a humbucker size (only see Soapbar and Dogear). Therefore, the models I really should be looking at are either the Hum-Canceling P90-Humbucker or the Alnico Noiseless P90-Humbucker? Hope my question is clear. Thx!

Hey Kevin, we recommend going with 2 Neck outputs and one Bridge output. Also, use the "notes" field on the checkout screen to let us know it's for a 3 Pickup Guitar.
Hey there, I have an epiphone elitist casino and would like a set of hum cancelling p90s for it (with chrome covers). What are the specific things I need to choose to order these?

Hey Alex, you need to select "Short Dogear" from the type, and then under the cover options, you'll see Chrome.
I have a 2020 Gibson LesPaul Special single cut with 2 Gibson P90s in it. The hum is a bit much and the tone is honky and not to my taste. I am looking at your hum cancelling p90’s with alnico rods. The routs look tight on this model and I was wondering if you had experience fitting your p90s in this type of Gibson. I want to pull the trigger but need to know if the size will work. Thanks

Hey Raffi, our Soapbar covers are standard Gibson size, so I don't think you'll face any issues there. Also, the pickup itself isn't much deeper than a standard P90. I think you'll be good! Worst case scenario, you should be able to use your Gibson Covers if ours don't fit for some reason.
I have a Fender Player Mustang 90 that I love but the p90 hum is killing me. Is the hum-canceling p90 with alnico rods set the correct choice? Should I get everything stock with standard spacing? Do I need to change out the stock pentameters on the guitar (I believe they are 325k or 350k)? I want to keep the tone but kill the hum. Any help would be most appreciated. Thank you.

Looking to swap out my stock P90’s in my Epiphone Casino for a set of Fralin Hum-Cancelling P90’s, (short-standard dogears) do I need to purchase the shims as well? Thanks
- I am interested in buying a set of your hum-canceling p90 with alnico rods to replace my stock p90s in my 82 Gibson LP, because I find them muddy. Is the right string spacing standard 50mm for a Les Paul? I would like to try the polished nickel cover, but can I reuse my old covers, if I like that look better?
