Anderson PH2 Black Noise-Cancelling P90 Pickup - Bridge

Description:

Anderson's PQ2 in a humbucker housing!

What we think:

I personally love the fat clarity of P90s and I love Anderson's revolutionary design qualities. So what happens when you combine the two? Nothing short of amazing. Now, I can take that P90 sound and retrofit my other humbucking guitars and not add any noise. It's truly everything I could want in a pickup.

PQ-Series Pickups

PQ-Series: (The “Q” stands for quiet!) 

The clean look of a traditional Soapbar-style 

pickup and the clean sound of no 60-cycle 

hum (when you are touching the strings, of 

course). 

What do Soapbar-style pickups sound 

like? 

The longstanding benefit of a Soapbar-style 

pickup is that they produce a sound that 

lives between the weaker F-type, single coil 

and the fat focus of a humbucker, giving you 

a sound nothing else can quite achieve. 

So, think of the wide bandwidth that a single 

coil pickup delivers—low, lows and stringy, 

musical highs. Now tame those highs ever 

so slightly so there is no “shattering glass” 

timbre, just clear string clarity. Add big, 

booming lows and give it enough midrange 

girth to not be wimpy in any situation—but 

not so much that it is mid-only like a 

traditional humbucker. 

Not weak but not overly hot—big enough to 

be dirty when pushed through your favorite 

amp and pristine when backed off—without 

60-cycle hum! How cool is that? 

You have the much-loved Soapbar tone at 

your fingertips. 

What’s the big deal? 

This coveted iconic musical “P” tone has not 

ever been achievable in a hum-canceling 

version—UNTIL NOW! Thanks to the 

Anderson PQ R&D department—real players 

jamming away until all hours of the night to 

bring P-performance under your control. 

Technically Speaking 

How about precision polepiece alignment—

means string and polepiece engage in 

maximum communication. Also, the height 

adjustment screws have been moved slightly 

outward for easier and intricate angling and 

height adjustment.
