'56 Quiet Coil P-90 Soapbar Pickup
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!

The hum is gone! The tone remains! These pickups are not your typical stacked hum cancelling P90s. The positioning of the coils capture the P90 magic. Stacked pickups are OK at emulating P90's but the Quiet Coils are fooling folks who try them in my shop. The most quoted phrase... "only the lack of hum gives them away".
If you want genuine P90 tone without the P90 racket put MOJOTONE P90 pickups in your instrument.

Best P-90â€™s Iâ€™ve ever played thru. If you love the vintage P-90â€™s tone but have shied away due to the amount of 60 cycle hum that they produce. These are the pickup for you. If you have a guitar with P-90â€™s that you love the way it plays and feels in your hands. But the tone isnâ€™t what you want. If your not hung up on what name is on the headstock. These are the pickups for you.
If you have a guitar from a well known manufacturer that has P-90â€™â€™s but hate the hum. These are the pickups for you. If your someone who has guitar built by a well known company that has P-90â€™s. These are the pickups for you. Because I can guarantee they sound better then what came in the guitar. Donâ€™t bother looking around. Comparing other companies versions of P-90â€™s is just a waist of time. When you can just go ahead and order Mojotones P-90â€™s. You can be enjoying the awesome huge tone they give you without the 60 cycle hum within the week.
These are the best P-90â€™s on the market today. Very pleased. Worth every penny spent. I installed them in a lower end guitar. I already loved the guitar. Because it plays so well and just fits. The pickups put it over the top. I had to make myself quit playing. The cheapest guitar I own is now the absolute best I have.
You guys at Mojotone, well done...well done!!!
