LR Baggs M1 Active Soundhole Pickup

Designed for players who love big acoustic tone with high feedback resistance on any stage, the M1 combines the natural characteristics of your guitar's soundboard with a punchy string attack. The M1's body-sensitive design provides enhanced realism while cutting through a loud mix.

The M1 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. We unlock 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.

M1 ACTIVE
The M1 Active's plug-&-play design features a preamp with audiophile circuitry for that pure acoustic sound LR Baggs are known for. The built-in electronics boosts 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 M1 Active includes a volume control and adjustable pole pieces for perfect balance and tone between the strings.
