L.R. Baggs M1 Active Body Sensitive Magnetic Pickup

L.R. Baggs

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.
