Circuits that I have tried for single coil Stratocaster® pickup humcancelling systems since 1989:

  1. Warren McAlister’s 1989 humcancelling system design, the guitar had a push/pull pot which selected either active humcancelling system or passive pickup modes.

2. Colin Bloxsom’s 2000 J-Fet based humcancelling system, this gave an improvement in pickup tonality from 1989 system.

3. Fryer humcancelling system 9B 2016, this is one of many prototypes that I have been experimenting with since 2011 and is showing promise.
