I have an instrument that has them and it’s as shielded as it can be – conductive paint in the cavities, shielded control cavity, etc – but it’s very sensitive to background hum. Trying to avoid swapping them for hum-cancelling P90s, which, while quiet, don’t sound as good IMHO.

It’s a p90, it hums in a beautiful way, no way I know other than the above January 21, 2018 at 8:08 am #204 Matt HaydenParticipant Yup. I kinda figured. Rick Turner might have spells to banish the hum, but beyond that, it’s just gonna make noise, I guess.

It had no hum, only great tone. My ‘58 3/4 size Les Paul Jr. is a different story. The hum is omnipresent. I just live with it.
