Vintage P-90's from the 50's were very special because of their vocal and dynamic qualities, with bold highs that breathe with clarity. The only problem was the 60-cycle hum and for today's player, 60-cycle hum can be unbearable at times. Mojotone's patent applied for '56 Quiet Coil hum-cancelling P-90 delivers all of that vintage goodness of a coveted 1956 P-90 without ever compromising tone or feel.
Our approach was very simple, to make a P-90 pickup that sounds like a real vintage P-90 without the hum. ‘56 “Quiet Coil™” P-90 pickups are passive and only use the parts and materials found in original vintage ‘56 P-90 pickups. Vintage spec 42 gauge coil wire, lower Gauss Alnico magnets, adjustable polepieces, and vintage braided leads.
No PC boards, batteries, stacked coils, or anything else associated with other hum-canceling pickups were used in our design. The result is simply the most pure and authentic P-90 tone possible, with absolutely no loss of true single coil P-90 tone. Cranked, they are big and bold with a classic grind that pulsates with the amplifier like a sophisticated sounding P-90. Roll back the volume to get a sweet clean tone of a vintage P-90 without losing clarity or treble.
Quiet Coil Design Features... -Consistent scatterwound coils for that handwound tone, sensitivity, and clarity. -Vintage formulated Alnico magnet cores with lower Gauss levels like an aged vintage P-90 pickup. -Vintage braided leads for easy push-back soldering. -No routing modifications are required to fit shallow vintage routs like the taller stacked hum-cancelling designs. -Less parts are used to build the Quiet Coils compared to other designs. Like a vintage P-90 pickup, they are SIMPLE!

null I added the QC P-90 (neck model) to the Bridge position on my Gibson Midtown to match with a Gibson mini-humbucker in the neck position.
VERY good results, and no phase issues as I received a two conductor lead by request.
The blended sound is fantastic and the QC P90 alone sounds just like the Demo!!

null I actually played that 58 Jr at NAMM. I was stunned. No other way to describe it. I'm going to order two sets of those 56 quiet coils. I think Mojotone successfully reinvented the P-90. They've knocked it out of the park on this one.

null The Quiet Coil P90 pickups sound just like 50's P90's which have a clearer sound than later Gibson P90's. A full range sound from top to bottom. Because they are quiet, you hear nuances that you've never noticed before. Love em! Thanks David!

Hobbiest These are great in my Gibson Les Paul Studio 60's tribute. Sweet and singing without being muddy in the neck, and full toned without being an ice pick in the bridge. Excellent set of balanced p90's!
