Takes the M1 pickup to a new level of performance and convenience.

The M1 Active features built-in all class A electronics, so there's no need for any external preamps and it's compatible with any outboard equipment. The new volume control gives you fingertip access in any performing situation.

The M1 is a humbucking pickup with a twist. In a common stacked humbucker, the second, lower coil cancels hum, but doesn't contribute anything positive to the sound. In fact, it can muddy the sound of the main coil. The M1 unlocks the second coil. This allows it to make a positive sonic contribution while maintaining the pure open sound of a single coil--but without the hum.

TriAxial Dynamic Technology
The hum-canceling coil is suspended under the main coil by a tuned support that allows it to move in 3 dimensions. The primary coil moves with the guitar top and creates a body signal in the suspended secondary coil. This brings the M1 to life, with string and body sound all in one. It's like having a dual pickup system in your soundhole. And it's all passive! The support is carefully tuned to control motion in all 3 dimensions. This allows you to selectively add the presence and realism from the body signal while suppressing runaway feedback.

  • Outstanding body sensitivity with great warmth and presence
  • Class A electronics
  • Long battery life
  • Top-mounted volume control wheel
  • Quiet, hum-free operation under the most challenging live conditions
  • High feedback resistance
  • Adjustable pole pieces with smooth threadless tops preserve fingerstylists' nails
  • Built-in gold-plated 1/8" jack makes moving or removing the pickup a snap

I have owned this pickup for about 4 hours. I got it for my daughter's acoostic guitar for a Christmas present and was a little skeptical about the sound..... until we plugged it in!! The only word I can think of to discrbe it is AWSUM!!! No hum, balanced tones and simple to oporate. My daughter immedeatly started jamming one of her Grand Funk Railroad songs and let me tell you it rocked!! I wood recomend this pickup to anybody that liked to rock out on there acoostic!! Keep pickin......

Great Pickup!

By Ryan Opiekun

Comments about LR Baggs M1A Active Soundhole Magnetic Pickup:

I installed this in my Martin OOO-16, and the results are incredible. I am a semi-pro singer songwriter, and this is the only thing that will accuratley recreate my guitars sound. This pickup is not meant for electric amps because it is active. PA and acoustic amps are perfect. If you're an acoustic player you won't be sorry about buying this pickup. For me the search is over for a perfect pickup.

Sweet as honey

By Charlie-FZuu3

from Fairbanks, Alaska

Comments about LR Baggs M1A Active Soundhole Magnetic Pickup:

I had this unit installed in my 12 year old Gibson Hummingbird and could not be happier. This pickup as well as other LR Baggs p/u's retains the true sound of the instrument, a rare quality. This will out perform many units costing much more. Save your money and stay with a winner.
