Superior live sound has never been easier.

New TriAxial Dynamic Technology allows the LR Baggs M1 Soundhole Pickup to respond to the guitar's string and body vibrations, redefining what is possible from a soundhole pickup.

The L.R. Baggs M-1 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.

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. 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.

Gold-plated 1/8" jack. The L.R. Baggs M1 Pickup includes a prewired strapjack harness and a 12' Mogami audiophile-grade cable.

  • Completely passive operation: no batteries to worry about
  • Quiet, hum-free operation under the most challenging live conditions
  • Highly feedback resistant
  • Adjustable pole pieces with smooth threadless tops preserve fingerstylists' nails

    Comments about LR Baggs M1 Soundhole Pickup:

    I Added This M1 Baggs To My Martin D 16 R GT Acoustic, Temp, Install. The Pick Up Did come with A 10 FT Cable, Which Is Fine Because I Sit Down When I Play, then I Added My 125 Telluride Watt Create Amp, The Sound That Came Out Of M1 125 Watt Create Totally Amazing, The Best Sound Ever. P.S . Yes The L R Baggs Also Has A Jack In Assembly, If Want a perm set up it comes with the pick up.

    The Best!

    Comments about LR Baggs M1 Soundhole Pickup:

    I've tried most of the other systems. This is the one. No batteries to change. a NICE even sound from the pole pieces mixed with a piezo effect it gets from the soundboard which it's clamped to anyway. You get no hum because it's a dual-coil but all the highs of a single-coil because the 2nd coil is under the first. I don't know why nobody else thought of doing it that way. It also doesn't block much of the sound hole so it doesn't change your tone unplugged. It puts out a nice strong signal without needing a preamp. I used it for about 2 days before mounting it permanently in my Martin.

    I love those soundhole pickups I put that soundhole pickup on my acoustic guitar because it is great to make the acoustic guitar electric.
