Body-Sensitive Magnetic Pickup
The M1 Active is a patented humbucking pickup with a twist. In a common stacked humbucker, the lower coil cancels hum, but doesn't contribute anything positive to the sound. LR Baggs unlocks the lower coil with a carefully tuned support that allows it to capture higher frequency resonances.
As the pickup moves with the guitar's soundboard, a body signal is created in the suspended coil that adds presence and realism to your amplified sound. The plug-and-play design has built-in electronics with audiophile-grade circuitry for that sweet and pure acoustic sound LR Baggs is known for. The internal electronics boost the pickup's output for a full and direct signal to any acoustic amplifier or P.A. system, eliminating the need for any external preamps. The addition of a built-in volume control provides the player quick access for any performance.
The M1 passive design delivers professional amplification in minutes. Adjustable pole pieces provide balance from string to string and the 1/8" jack makes removing the pickup a snap for when you are in the studio. Install the pickup with the strapjack or use the 10' external soundhole cable for absolutely no modifications to your prized instrument.
